Fedora Hardware :: FC14 With Two Broadcom Wireless Cards

Apr 19, 2011

My laptop has these Broadcom chipsets (from lspci):
Code:
00:09.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4306 802.11b/g Wireless LAN Controller (rev 02)
02:00.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4321 802.11a/b/g/n (rev 01)

The 4321 is working fine with wl, but I can't figure out how to get the 4306 working. As I understand, I can't use wl for that one. I once had it working (in FC10 or so) with b43legacy, which is now blacklisted for wl. Unblacklisting it alone doesn't make the other card work. Is there some other configuration I need to do?

Ubuntu Networking :: Monitor Mode On Broadcom 14e4:4315 And 14e4:432* Wireless Cards?

Apr 3, 2010

First of all, this tutorial will use NDISWRAPPER, not b43, not wl (Broadcom STA). So, hooray for new method (actually, the only method ). Now, I don't want anyone to get scared because of bad experiences with Ndiswrapper or whatever, it's actually quite easy. I did not come up with any of this info. I'm just putting this guide together from Kacper Szczesniak's info (who came up with this method), WifiDocsDriverbcm43xxFeisty_No-Fluff from the Ubuntu Wiki, and my experience. The Broadcom STA (wl) driver has references to monitor mode in it's code, but does not have that functionality in reality. The Broadcom Windows driver on the other hand does have this capability. So, for monitor mode to work, you will need a patched version of ndiswrapper.

1) Install the Linux kernel headers:

Code:

sudo apt-get install linux-headers-$(uname -r)

2) Install the tools required to compile Ndiswrapper:

Code:

sudo apt-get install checkinstall dh-make fakeroot gcc build-essential

3) Unload current Ndiswrapper module, if running:

Code:

sudo rmmod ndiswrapper

Fedora Networking :: Unstable Wireless Connection With Broadcom Onboard Wireless?

Dec 21, 2010

I am running FC13 on a Compaq Presario 2100 using a Broadcom BCM4306. I was able to get it running thanks to Fedora Unity Project. But It's a very unstable connection. I don't know what settings to adjust or enable or disable. It's not my router, this is the only wireless connection in the house that I have trouble with.

Fedora Networking :: Fc12 Networkmanager And Multiple Wireless Cards?

Nov 9, 2010

I'm having problems getting two wlan cards to work under Networkmanager with F12. I have an old server that I wanted to move, so thought I'd get a USB wlan device for it. before setting up the server, I thought I'd try the USB (an Edimax EW-7711USn - Ralink 2870) on my laptop first. My laptop has an inbuilt ipw2200 card that works fine under NM.

So I've down loaded the DPO_RT3370_LinuxSTA_V2.4.0.1_20100831.tgz file from Ralink, and built the driver (after changing the os/linux/config.mk file for the WPA supplicant settings). I also install the rt2870 firmware (from Ralink) in the /lib/firmware directory. I also blacklisted the rt2800usb driver to ensure that that didn't get loaded.

The problem I have is that I can now get both the ipw2200 device and the rt2870 devices 'working', but they both try to assume the same IP (I want fixed IP's and not DHCP for them) - what is the way to configure the 'devices' so that the rt2870 device is always given IP x and the ipw2200 given IP y?

I think my problem is really my lack of understanding where/how NM handles the files under the GUI config. I used to semi understand how the old network config tool set up it's files and where they were etc. But with NM I'm a bit lost as to how it equates the device with the network settings. Once I have the device working with the correct driver on my laptop, I'll look to apply the same settings on the server (which is then FC13 - but should be simpler as it doesn't have an existing wlan interface).

Fedora :: Broadcom WLAN Wireless Driver Fedora Core 11

Aug 26, 2009

Okay I posted about this a while ago, and i got my wired network to work, but now i need my wireless card driver to work. I have been doing research and I found something called ndiswrapper which drivers from windows working in linux. I typed in lspci in the terminal and it gave me my specs of my wireless card which is a:
-Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4306 802.11b/g Wireless LAN Controller (rev 03)

-Some people said there is no original driver for this card, so you need to use ndiswrapper, I was wondering does anybody know what this is, how do i use this, and help me out to get my wireless card going. If you give me instructions, please be really specific as I am really new and still getting the hang of commands.

Fedora Networking :: Install Broadcom Wireless Card On 11?

Sep 1, 2009

I chose to change my operating system from Microsoft Xp to Linux and finally chose Fedora to be my new OS.

After Fedora installation I got a problem that I cannot connect to my wireless network I used to using Xp, I think that my wireless card is not installed on Fedora because when I checked in the network configuration I found that the only installed adapter is the Ethernet Realtek for the wired connection.

My OS is Fedora 11.

The CPU Model name is : Intel (R) Core (TM) 2 Duo CPU T8300 @2.40 GHz, so I think that my architecture is x86_64.

My Network controller is : Broadcom Corporation BCM4312 802.11b/g

Fedora Networking :: Acer Laptop, Broadcom Wireless And Ndiswrapper?

Aug 7, 2009

sometime back when installing FC10, i tried installing ndis wrapper, and later i installed the broadcom driver bcm431 (i think). also i didn't remove the ndis wrapper.

all was fine untill a yesterday when ndis wrapper and some related packages got updated which somehow caused wireless to stop working. lspci showed the hardware present.

to get it to work, i did a yum erase ndis-wrapper, followed by a reboot.

it may not be the most elegent way, but it worked for me.

hardware specs:acer aspire 4720Z (mine has broadcom wireless, others may have atheros)

Fedora Networking :: Broadcom Corporation BCM4318 (AirForce One 54g) 802.11g Wireless LAN

Sep 19, 2009

This is my first post! I am a brand new Linux fan and am determined to understand how this system works! I am running Fedora 11. My wired NIC works just fine. I am having problems with wireless. I ran lspci -v to find my driver details, found it online and got it working so it would show up in the network configuration. I am having problems getting it to work from there. I am used to getting windows to install the driver and then being able to search for wireless networks. When I try to activate it i get:

Fedora Networking :: Broadcom BCM4313 Wireless - No Wired Connection?

So basically, complete linux noob here, dual-booted fedora 13 with windows 7, and fedora can't seem to detect either my wired or wireless, however i don't really care about the wired. After spending a few hours browsing forums and tutorials and the like, seems as if it is a driver issue, as in there is none. I have managed to find the files :

Fedora Hardware :: Broadcom Wireless BCM4312 On Linux Kernel 2.6.35.10-72

Dec 26, 2010

I have a problem here with my updated kernel. I'm currently using Fedora 14 kernel 2.6.35.9-64, and my wireless card Broadcom BCM4312, which had an issue before with Linux distros, is working fine already, thanks to the kmod-wl software driver. My problem now is this, after updating to kernel 2.6.35.10-72, fedora does not boot, and I noticed that the wireless card is the only thing not activating, compared to the working kernel. And when i looked at the log of the bootup (pressed right arrow key), I saw this:

Fedora Networking :: No Wired: Which Tools From 15 Fusion --> Broadcom STA For Wireless

However I do not have a wired internet connection, and have the infernal BCM4312 and I understand the STA works with this (It has worked for me with other distros). In another thread, I read that I can download the relevant files (using another computer) from FedoraFusion, transfer them to the wireless computer and install.

Fedora Networking :: F12: Broadcom Wireless Does Not Detect Any Network On X86_64 System

Dec 8, 2009

I have a Broadcom Corporation BCM4312 802.11b/g (rev 01) wireless card. I installed these packages:

and:

# lsmod | grep wl

My networkmanager understands that the card is installed. But it can not find any network. Also iwlist scan gives me no result. I did not have this problem on earlier fedora releases. Recently I upgraded to F12 from F11. I should mention that I have another USB DLink wireless card and when I plug it, everything works fine with that card. I also tested wl_apsta driver using fw-cutter. I did not work neither.

Fedora Networking :: HP Mini 110 Broadcom Wireless - Can't Get The Card To Turn On Using The Slide Switch

Sep 11, 2009

I have an HP mini 110 with Fedora 11 install. I installed the broadcom-wl and wl-kmod from yum but still no wireless. First I can't get the broadcom card to turn on using the slide switch on the front of the computer. The device is inactive in the network configuration-devices window. The card is not in the network configuration hardware window. When I try to add it manually, there is no entry for the card in the drop down list. I am new to Fedora but have used linux for years. Unfortunately this is my first attempt at wireless networking.

The posts and google stuff doesn't say much more than "yum install broadcom-wl" Can anyone point me into the right direction? I have a feeling I am missing something very simple, because this computer dual boots Linux Mint and wireless works flawlessly.
