Fedora Hardware :: 15 Wireless Firmware Missing From Dell?
Jun 14, 2011
I've recently burned Fedora 15 into a CD, in order to install from there onto my computer. However, when boot into Fedora, my wireless doesn't work, instead, it says that firmware is missing.I have had exactly the same problem installing other Linux distros, such as Ubuntu. When I consulted the support at Ubuntu, they were unable to solve the problem. The 'missing firmware' problem is exactly the same in other Linux distros, so I'm pretty much guessing that it's the same problem and is due to my wireless card incompatibility or something.
I am new to Fedora 15. I just installed it on my laptop.I have a HP pavillion dv4-1314us with intel core 2 duo.When I try to turn on my wireless, it tells me "firmware missing".lspci -vnn | grep 14e402:00.0 Network controller : Broadcom Corporation BCM4322 802.11a/b/g/n Wireless LAN Controller [14e4:432b] (rev 01)I tried using this http://wireless.kernel.org/en/users/Drivers/b43 . I executed the Fedora Part, rebooted and it still doesn't work.
When I try to connect to the internet wirelessly with Fedora 14 it tells that the wirless firmware is missing. Is there anywayI can fix this or find the firmware for a Dell Wireless 1379 Wlan mini-chip? The Chipset is BCM4315Also my computer is a Dell Inspiron 1545
after installing Ubuntu Natty Narwhal 11.04, I'm experiencing tons and tons of complications with the wireless Internet connection. I have solved most of them. Now I have only one thing left. When I hit the drop-down menu for wireless connections, it says "Wireless connection (Firmware missing)"
I have installed the driver for my wireless card but what is the firmware? I honestly don't know what it is although it's very basic. I have a Broadcom 43xx as my wireless card (specifically 4306). How do I get the firmware for it? Do I find it in Windows? Also I cannot get b43-fwcutter because I have absolutely to Internet connection on Ubuntu. To post this, I'm using Windows.
DELL Inspiron 15 3543 (3000 Series)5th Generation Intel Core i5-5200U Processor (3M Cache, up to 2.70 GHz).I have installed Debian 8 and received following message relating missing firmware files rtl_nic/rtl8106e-1.fw (EDIT: I understand this is not wireless adapter, but wired adapter which appears to be working ok as I can connect to internet ok.)The wireless adapter wasn't recognised so I used LAN cable and completed the install.this is details of wireless adapter....
When I click on the wireless I get a message saying that I am missing firmware. I've tried connecting via ethernet, however this doesn't work either, would it be a problem if I just found a download for firmware, downloaded on another comp and copy it to my linux computer?
I am using a hp pavilion zd7000, computer says firmware is missing for wireless controller. i also have a wirless g notebook card made by belkin which will scan for networks but wont connect to them for some unknown reason. if i can get either the wireless g card to work or the built in wireless to work thata be great. I am well experienced in windows but very new to linux and how everything works.
I thought I'd give Ubuntu 11.04 (Natty Narwhal??) a try on an old Dell Latitude D600 I had lying around. Install went great. Everything seems to run nice and slick.. except one thing.. the wireless is giving me the old "Device not ready (firmware missing)" So I can only use my lappy on a leash.
It's a pretty common Broadcom NIC... and I've tried running the System / Administration / Additional Drivers and nothing comes up.
It seems to me I need a driver someplace...I don't know where or how to get it installed.
I tried to find my solution for hours now but no luck. I'm a medical student and the other day I finally found the time to set up ubuntu for my first time. Everything was working great and I had wireless up and running. However, I tried to set up tethering to my iphone and after that my wireless hasn't been working (I've noticed no other problems). [URL]..Then I used this tutorial [URL].. However, after doing these steps the computer needed to reboot (I actually forget exactly where but I had to reboot in the middle of the second tutorial). After my computer restarted my wireless no longer showed up. By this I mean that wireless network no longer even showed up as an option when I left clicked then connections. However, I did not lose the wireless profile under network connections. So I went to system and noticed that the Broadcom STA driver was no longer active. So I tried to activate again and received this message.
I am using a dell laptop which has Dell 1397 802.11B/G Wireless Mini Card. I not able to connect to internet and was not able to detect what actual problem is weather card is not supported (i.e. drivers are not available) .
Also, if any one can point to exact process to connect to wireless Lan using fedora12.
I just upgraded from Fedora 14 to 15 and am having problems getting my wireless internet to work. I never had it working in Fedora 14 as it told me "firmware was missing." I have tried many different approaches described online and non have seemed to help me. I have an HP dv6700 laptop with a Broadcom "Broadcom Corporation BCM4312 802.11b/g LP-PHY (rev 01)" chipset. I have installed the Broadcom-wl set from yum as well.
I just installed Fedora 15 on my HP mini 210-1000, everything is working fine except my wifi is not up. It says firmware missing. How do i fix this problem? Previously I used to have Ubuntu 11.04 on it and wifi worked fine, but I need Fedora as i am using .rpm based applications. So please assist me in getting my Wifi up! lscpi gives this:

I have installed Fedora 10 on a Dell M6400. It has 2 disks in a mirror raid. It came with Windows Vista, but I am not doing a dual boot setup. I have formattet the disk with this installation.I downloaded http://ftp.crc.dk/fedora/linux/relea...0-i386-DVD.iso, burned the DVD and did the install check. It passed the check.The installation went fine, but after the first reboot I am getting "Missing operating system".
I have no idea where to begin... Could the installation media be faulty after all? I there anyway to get passed this, without reinstalling? I know this may have something to do with the boot loader, but I don't know anything about it.I have installed Fedora 4,5,6,8,9 and this never happened to me before, but then again, I did all these installations on my old Dell Latitude.... Could this have something to do with the new hardware?
i have ubuntu 11.04 ihave tried mpvick@ubuntu:~$ sudo apt-get install b43-fwcutter && sudo apt-get install firmware-b43-lpphy- but it didnt work i am using a direct connection but it said it could not find b43 also i am dual booting between windows 7 starter and ubuntu 11.04 and this is my firtst time using linux also i am in 9th grade so i probably need it in walk through format i have a brodcom 208.11 card and im running it on the hp mini 110 and i downloaded strait from ubuntu.com so no disc or usb any way like i said the wirless says that i am missing firmware
While attempting to install 7.7 on i7 Samsung notebook, iwlwifi and rtl_nic files cannot be found on usb or sdc (have no floppy to try) Added the missing files to iso and burned new disc which would not boot.
So I am new to linux and i upgraded my kernel to 4.3.3 and to add the bfq patch. When i enter the command make install I get the following Code:
Select allupdate-initramfs: Generating /boot/initrd.img-4.3.3 W: Possible missing firmware /lib/firmware/rtl_nic/rtl8107e-2.fw for module r8169 W: Possible missing firmware /lib/firmware/rtl_nic/rtl8107e-1.fw for module r8169 W: Possible missing firmware /lib/firmware/rtl_nic/rtl8168h-2.fw for module r8169 W: Possible missing firmware /lib/firmware/rtl_nic/rtl8168h-1.fw for module r8169
just did a dual boot or whatever you call it last night)and I can't figure out how to connect to my home wireless internet. I checked in one of the menus, and it says "firmware missing". Does anybody have an idea of what I need to do to fix this? If I haven't been specific enough, please ask for more information. I'm not really sure what to include.

Anyone knows how I can fix this. According this "log" it seems to be that the firmware have been moved/removed?.. [URL]
It is the firmware for the network card, but it works fine....
In the past I've installed 9.10 using a hardwired network port for the web with the above card in the machine. After the install I got a notification of an update which downloaded the appropriate software for the above wireless card. Worked like a charm. Today I installed 11.04 and zilch. No wireless. Supposedly the firmware is missing. I guess my question is why is something that worked well in the past now missing?
My Dell Vostro 1520's Dell Wireless 1397 WLAN Mini-Card must not have been set-up correctly, as the Network Manager won't even let me select the wireless tab. Please just explain to me, step by step, what exactly I must do to make it work! Additionally, I can't figure out how to disable my Touchpad's Tap to Click funtionality, which must be done if I'm to effectively use my current KDE installation of openSUSE
