I installed Ubuntu 7.04 on my ibookG4, and I have had heaps of trouble
trying to get the wireless card to work.
As far as I can see it is disabled. How do I enable/activate it?

what I have printed out when I type in the command lshw is:

* - network DISABLED
description: Wireless interface
product: BCM4318 [Airforce One 54g] 802.11g Wireless LAN Controller

clock 33Mhz

This is all the information on the wireless card(I think). Has anyone had
this kind of problem before?
