I am having a problem while connecting to a D-Link Access Point with Multiple ESSID. It keeps saying activating but in the end nothing. I am using KnetworkManager & there is no Encryption on the Access Point.I am able to get connected with another machine using windows.Here is my hardware info:

I know this question was asked hundreds of times,but I sy=till can not fix my wireless. On the HP2133 with openSUSE 11.3 I have wired but no wireless connection. The driver is ssb On Terminal I see

I have installed b43 with the install script and I can see all wireless networks fine, but NetworkManager just keeps asking me for the WPA passphrase, despite it being correct. I tried disabling WPA on the router, but then the connection hangs at "Configuring interface" instad. I also tried with ifup, but I'm not sure I configured everything correctly. I don't get any smarter from the NetworkManager logs, maybe someone else can decipher them? tail -50 when connection doesn't work:
Code: Apr 18 17:00:11 jan NetworkManager: <info> Activation (wlan0) Stage 2 of 5 (Device Configure) complete. Apr 18 17:00:11 jan NetworkManager: <info> Config: set interface ap_scan to 1
I am new to Linux, nevertheless Ubuntu. I have Lucid Lynx on my laptop, with Windows Vista 32 bit along side of it. I have done some research, and found out thathe wireless connector on my laptop, a Broadcom BCM4312, doesn't work with Ubuntu 10.04. I know that I need a driver
I just got my new ubuntu 9.10 os desktop version installed into my lenovo laptop but then my WiFi is not working. Previously I had a broadcom driver which currently is not functioning with the ubuntu 9.10.
In System-->Administration-->Additional Drivers I've enabled the 'Broadcom STA wireless driver' and its noted as 'This driver is activated and currently in use.' Changes I made
- I've activated the Nvidia driver. - I've installed Boxee (media center) - I'm using CPU frequency scalers for both my cores. - I've updated my system and am using maverick-security, -updates and -proposed. - I've installed b43-fwcutter - I've installed firmware-b43-lpphy-installer
Other than those adjustments the system is completely fresh. When I suspend or hibernate and activate my laptop again it only shows a backlight-lit black screen and does not continue restoring. Other than the occasional flash my cpu 'business' indicator led does nothing. BUT The wireless led is now on. I've tried the Broadcom B43 driver as you could've guessed from the changes I made, no result. I had to use the 'lpphy' installer(for BCM4312 (with Low-Power aka LP-PHY)), the 'legacy' and normal version both gave an error upon executing the post installation script.
I have a problem here with my updated kernel. I'm currently using Fedora 14 kernel 126.96.36.199-64, 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 188.8.131.52-72, 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:
just installed it with a duel boot with windows, installed it using a live boot cd that i burned. seems like everything is good except i have no wifi i tried to do an update and possibly get the fix and i get an error when trying to install the updates..looks like i have more issues than i thought.. did i mess up by installing from the live cd?
I'm trying to install fedora 10 onto the HP mini note, I have read how to install from another forum but it does not seem to work. I have setup a USB install using unetbootin. I only get white box lines for a mouse cursor the when it finally begins like it is about to boot into the live installation it freezes and can go no further.
I need a driver to work with my Broadcom BCM4312 Network Connector on my Dell Inspiron 1525 Laptop. I have already extracted the tarball, but I don't know what to do to actually install the driver. I am running Ubuntu 10.04.1 LTS, with Windows dual booting.
Both F15 KDE Live CD and DVD new installs fail on HP 2133 mini notebook. The device has previously accepted F12 installation without a problem. The HP 2133 has a VIA C7 processor. Is this CPU is no longer compatible with Fedora? The syslog repeats endlessly 'microcode: no support for this CPU vendor'. The Live CD will not even begin the install to diskl. The DVD will install but will fail on reboot with the microcode error. How to overcome this installation problem?. Is there a kernel upgrade or microcode update that has already resolved this and how can it be installed?
I'm relatively new to Ubuntu and Linux OS in general, hope this hasn't already been solved but after trying for 24hrs+ I think it may be time for me to start my own thread (sorry if there is already one). I have been desperately trying to get my Broadcom BCM4312 wireless card to work and after searching about 100 sites and threads I still can't get it going Here are some of the problems Ive been having(I am running Ubuntu 8.04 by the way):
1. Tried installing "Broadcom STA Wireless Driver" under System->Administration->hardware drivers but after install it didn't show any signs of working.
2. I tried getting the Linux driver off the website [URL]... and followed the instructions in the readme to the letter, yet when i am asked to type in one of the final commands: # sudo insmod wl.ko
I get the output: # error inserting 'wl.ko': -1 File exists I have also looked at this website where a guy posts the same problem but no one posted anything back: [URL]...
I have been upgrading (upgrade from 11.3 then fresh install to 11.4) and as usual with Broadcom I have problems. On 11,3 I used the Pacman STA and was working fine. for 11.4, I suppose that my BCM4312 will be supported after installing the b43 driver. It actually woks, few seconds (but never had time to verify) Some background
lspci gives 0c:00.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4312 802.11b/g LP-PHY (rev 01) Using KDE network manager I can see the wifi AP around, including mine, the problem is when I wan to connect, using WPA2 (TKIP + EAS), I have the right password (I can connect from another station), but when I try here it keeps coming back asking from password .. (I use the kwallet, but that should be out of scope) .. Basically it always fails..
I've just installed Ubuntu on 2 computers, and I'm new to it. However I'm not new to computers. The problem I'm currently running into on one of the computers is that the wireless will not detect any connections, despite there being many. The computer is a HP Compaq v6203AU using the wireless card Broadcom BCM4312 [14e4:4312]. I've went through dozens of walkthroughs, encountering errors in every single one of them, I've spent 8 hours on this one problem and extremely frustrated. It seem to be a problem with the driver that comes as default, and I'm lost at what to do.
The terminal command "lspci -nn | grep 14e4" returns the following: 03:00.0 Network Controller : Broadcom Corporation BCM4312 802.11a/b/g [14e4:4312]
ifconfig returns the following: eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:23:8b:b2:ab:d3 UP BROADCAST MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1 RX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0 TX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0 collisions:0 txqueuelen:1000 RX bytes:0 (0.0 B) TX bytes:0 (0.0 B) Interrupt:20 Base address:0x8000
I'm flummoxed, guilt-stricken and near my wit's end. The Ubuntu-preloaded Inspiron 1545 I persuaded my girfriend to buy contains the dreaded BCM4312, and nothing I can think of seems to be helping. I've tried various approaches with the STA and B43 drivers. Gad, I feel like I've tried EVERYTHING. Here's where her poor machine's at right now:
Code: uname -r 2.6.35-24-generic lspci -v -- omitting output from all the unrelated devices 0c:00.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4312 802.11b/g LP-PHY (rev 01) Subsystem: Dell Wireless 1397 WLAN Mini-Card Flags: bus master, fast devsel, latency 0, IRQ 17
I recently switched from 10.04.1 Ubuntu that I had for only about a week, to Ubuntu 10.10 Beta. I switched because I heard that 10.10 comes with firmware right out of the box for BCM4312. I am new with Linux, and Ubuntu, but I do know what some of the commands do and etc. I got 10.10 installed, but the wireless options say "Not connected|Firmware Missing" What do I need to activate the firmware, or install it?
I am trying to start using linux, and am new, so sorry if this is dumb. I started out trying Ubuntu, but that didn't work. After that I had tried Mint, and had several problems besides the Network Connector. Now I'm trying Fedora, but if that doesn't work is there a different Linux distro that will work?
I have a problem with the built-in wireless-card of my laptop. I can connect to the wireless DSL-router using wicd (wicd-1.7.0-486-2 from /extra), wicd reports that it connects and obtains an IP-address. It then changes the status to connected. Immediately after that (may be a second later) the status changes back to disconnected and I can't reach the network.
Here some specs: Kernel: self-compiled 2.6.37-6-generic, the only option I changed from the standard generic config was to enable PAE, but I also tried it with the standard generic kernel and the huge kernel. Wireless card: Broadcom Corporation BCM4312 802.11b/g LP-PHY (rev 01) Firmware installed with the packages from Slackbuilds.org: network/b43-fwcutter network/b43-firmware. The wireless card is working correctly under Debian, so I think this is not a hardware issue.
ok basically i have a new dell inspiron n5010 with a broadcom 4313 wifi card. it doesnt work with ubuntu studio 10.10. I have the drivers all installed and it works on ethernet with the broadcom STA proprietry driver. if i disable this driver the eth doesnt work. but the driver shows its working (screenshot-1).
There is no pop up or anything in the task bar for detected wifi. i open the network settings and it shows up with a wifi option but i have to go into properties and manually type in what i have "the_den_meribel". which didn't work. (screenshot-2).
i have tried the other driver broadcom-sta-common and that doesnt make it work either. screenshot-3. i did try to install the "lp-pphhy" or whatever it is (seacrh for firmware-b43 in synaptic).
i have a list of results from what i have typed into the terminal: dell inspiron n5010
I just installed the 64-bit Kubuntu 11.04 and i've been having some issues getting the wifi to work. At first I went to additional drivers and activated the STA driver and restarted. After restarting when I went into the network manager and any option for wireless was disabled.
I posted earlier and got no response, so here i go again. I installed openSUSE 11.3 KDE, it all works fine but the wireless doesnt work and i cant connect to the internet at all, i don't know how to, and i don't even know if the proper drivers are installed. I posted this in the last thread:
"i ran this this command in ubuntu:
Code: lspci | grep -i network came up with this result:
I recently bought a Lenovo laptop which comes with a wireless card called Broadcom BCM4312 but in dmesg it says "bcm4315 hybrid wireless controller".
Jockey says the driver is installed, activated and in use. However I don't get any signal (I even moved the laptop to the same room the wireless router is).
I run iwevent and nothing appeared.
I run Kubuntu 10.04, fresh install from a USB stick, latest updates. I replaced knetworkmanager with the network-manager-gnome. network-manager-gnome works fine and I can connect to wired connection with no problem.
Network-manager-gnome says that the wireless is disconnected. What can be done to make the wireless work?
I have a problem with my wireless connection. I just installed the broadcom BCM4312 firmware in order to recognize my hardware. Everything is ok, it connects to my wireless network, but i can't access the internet. My wireless is in eth1 interface. If i try to connect using PPPOE it works.
