Jan 15, 2010

I have install 64bit version of Fedora 12 on a new Dell Inspiron 1545 with a Dell 1397 wireless card. It actually uses a Broadcom BCM4312 chip.

I have install the following rpms:

kmod-wl-2.6.31.9-174.fc12.x86_64-5.10.91.9.3-3.fc12.11.x86_64
kmod-wl-5.10.91.9.3-3.fc12.11.x86_64
code....

what I do not understand is the state of the card as unavailable. how I can activate this card?

Fedora Networking :: Network Restart Errors - Bcm4311 On Dell Inspiron 1501

Jun 19, 2009

I have installed F11 on my Dell Inspiron 1501. I tried to get the Broadcom 4311 wireless card to work by following the instructions for installing the Broadcom driver from this link: [url].

That resulted in the following errors when I gave the command:

Code:

I removed the broadcom-wl package and installed the autoen package from DangerMouse. After rebooting wireless works but I still get the same errors when I give the command:

Code:

I had to disable encryption on the router to connect, but I guess that's a compromise I'll have to make right now. I will work on that some more after I get these error messages straightened out:

Code:

Note that wireless does seem to be working (though without encryption) despite the error messages. And I got these same error messages with the Broadcom driver but I could not get wireless working.

OpenSUSE Wireless :: Wireless Will Not Connect Dell Inspiron 1440

Feb 18, 2011

I have loaded the latest version of opensuse and I have everything working but I cannot connect to my wireless WPA2 network. I have downloaded the bcm43xx firmware using the method /usr/sbin/install_bcm43xx_firmware I then restarted the network. The computer will now read the network card and will find networks but I cannot get it to connect at all. At first it would connect using ifup in yast but would disconnect after a few seconds. It would never connect through NM. I have a usb network card that works just fine. I am lost as to how to fix this problem.

Fedora Networking :: Wireless With Inspiron 1501 Bcm4311 Rev01 / Trying To Connect To A Hidden Wireless Network?

May 5, 2009

I am having a little trouble connecting to my wireless network. Running Fedora 10 32 bit.I'm trying to connect to a hidden wireless network. I updated the firmware for my driver but apparantly the driver is still not working. Broadcom has a driver from their website for Linux 32 bit systems. Should I attempt to install it? I read a post where the driver is built into the system kernel. If so I would need to blacklist the one of the drivers. Correct?

I will like to know how to install ethernet drivers dell inspiron N4010 on opensuse 11.3, when I go to YaST > Network Devices > Network Settings and then I have a Warning message "Network is currently controlled by NetworkManager and its settings cannot be edited by Yast. Then I click on OK, I go to Global Options and i click on Traditional Method with ifup, and then I go to Overview and I have this information:

Ubuntu Networking :: No Ethernet Or Wireless Dell Inspiron 1764?

Jun 17, 2011

I'm running on 11.04 on my Dell Inspiron 1764, and so far haven't been able to achieve internet access through either a direct wired connection or wireless.

Wireless network controller: Broadcom BCM4312 802.11b/g LP-PHY (rev 01)

Ethernet controller: Realtek RTL8101E/RTL8102E PCI Express Fast Ethernet controller (rev 02)

Fixes I've tried so far:

Wired - Attempted to install the r8168 driver and remove the r8169 driver as is done in this thread:

url

Wireless - managed a fleeting wired connection yesterday, during which time I installed the Broadcom STA driver through Additional Drivers.

Also attempted to install the firmware-b43-lpphy-installer, following these instructions:

url

but to no avail (under Synaptic Package Manager, the firmware-b43-lpphy-installer still remains unchecked after I install it through terminal)

Ubuntu Networking :: Wireless Not Working In 9.10 Using Dell Inspiron 600m?

Jan 7, 2010

The network icon and sound icon disappeared from the panel all of sudden one day while i was using ubuntu 9.10 and the network got disconnected. It used to work fine before when i was using ubuntu 9.04 and even after i updated to 9.10, but then that happened. I added the notification area back to the panel but now ubuntu cannot even find any wireless networks. When i connect a LAN cable to my laptop the internet works fine, but the wireless networks area in the network icon is grayed out and it doesn't show any wireless networks. I'm using a Dell Inspiron 600m laptop and my network card is Intel Corporation PRO/Wireless 2915ABG [Calexico2] Network Connection (rev 05).

Ubuntu Networking :: Dell Inspiron 15r (n5010) Wireless Disabled?

Sep 30, 2010

i have to say that i'm not too familiar with Ubuntu... or Linux in general . I've installed it once, just to test it out but I didn't know how to use it so i just reinstalled windows. The other night, i was bored and decided i wanted to re-try Ubuntu and to my suprise, i found Wubi. I love ubuntu now and i made the decision to permanently switch over to ubuntu.

At first, my wireless wasn't working, but there was a quick fix. All i had to do was go to the Synaptic Package Manager, Reload, and search for "Broadcom." I installed the Broadcom STA Wireless driver and i was online within a couple of minutes. I then played around for a couple of hours before turning my laptop off. But, this morning, when i turned it back on...I coudlnt' connect. When i click the little connection icon in the top right, i see the message "Wireless is disabled".

There is a key on my computer that turns the wireless card on or off, and i have tried it. It doesn't work. I have reinstalled the broadcom driver and it doesn't work. I've rebooted...And it doesn't work. I don't know enough about linux to get a solution and every other solution i find on the internet doesn't work.

I have seen in other threads that you guys usually ask for a a couple of things from the user. ifconfig and the sudo lshw -C network so i have included them below. I also looked into the ubuntu help documentation and it told me to do the lspci command.

ifconfig

Code:
eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr a4:ba:db:d1:61:c2
inet addr:192.168.1.68 Bcast:192.168.1.255 Mask:255.255.255.0

OpenSUSE Wireless :: WLAN On Dell Mini 10 (Inspiron 1012)?

Sep 26, 2010

I just want to report that I managed to get WLAN running on my Dell Mini 10 (Inspiron 1012) with OpenSuse 11.3 KDE.
This one contains a Broadcom 4312 WLAN card

Code:

lspci -vnn|grep Broadcom
07:00.0 Network controller [0280]: Broadcom Corporation BCM4312 802.11b/g LP-PHY [14e4:4315] (rev 01)
0b:00.0 Multimedia controller [0480]: Broadcom Corporation Device [14e4:1615]
Subsystem: Broadcom Corporation Device [14e4:1615]

I just installed the broadcom-wl and broadcom-wl-kmp-desktop packages from the packman repository. Then there is a new entry in the bootmanager menu. Using that one, WLAN works fine.By the way: Can somebody explain me the difference between the broadcom-wl-kmp-desktop, broadcom-wl-kmp-default, broadcom-wl-kmp-pae, broadcom-wl-kmp-xen packages? I did not find any documentation about that.

If someone can walk me through the trouble-shooting process, I tried the solution suggested in the sticky at the top too but no luck.

Ubuntu :: Wireless Card Drivers On Dell Inspiron N7010

May 14, 2011

I had just installed Ubuntu in my brother's laptop and the drivers for the laptop`s wireless card got deleted, or that's what is leading me to believe. Prior to the installation, the laptop was picking up wireless signals just fine. I tried finding the drivers on the INTERNET but there are too many and I don't want to get the wrong one. Even so, I don't know how to install it through Ubuntu or anything. I tried the "disswrapping" app. but it was looking for some sort of ".if" file type. I also tried using the Terminal, but I'm not an expert on this kind of stuff. I got Ubuntu 2 days ago on my own laptop.

Ubuntu Networking :: Re-enable Wireless On Dell Inspiron 1545?

Jun 12, 2010

I've got a Dell Inspiron 1545 with wireless card Dell wireless 1397 802.11g. It was working fine with Windows and Ubuntu 9.04 (I've got the two OS installed alongside). But as soon as I upgraded my Ubuntu to version 10.4 I realised it lost its wireless connection! I updated the system, the hardware driver for Broadcom STA wireless driver is activated and in use (according to Ubuntu Hardware drivers checker) but the fact is that I can only connect on the Internet if I hook the net cable on it, when I run the mouse over internet connection icon at the topright side of the monitor I see "no network" message and when I left click on it the option "wireless network" it's disabled and gray. How can I get my wireless card back working?
