I am drowning in Broadcom over here. Fedora 15 with Broadcom 4313 wireless inop. I believe that I have made every attempt to get this Broadcom 4313 off and flying that is posted on this, and many other, forums. I had the wireless working on this laptop yesterday when I made an error with a NVIDIA driver that caused me to be unable to boot. I updated/reinstalled the kernel and the fun began. Here is where things are at. note the broadcom version fc13? No idea why that would be 13.
At the very begging of my ubuntu experience (2 days ago) I was able to check the "Enable Wireless" bar up in the top right corner, but I was unable to connect any wireless networks, cause none would show on the list. Using nm-tool i get this info:
I am using Linux Mint 8 Helena x64 Edition on Dell Studio 15 laptop which has Dell 1520 Wireless-N Mini Card. It does work when I boot from Live CD of Helena, connect to a wired network and download & install the proprietary drivers when prompted. But on the installed system, I am unable to activate the Broadcom STA driver. I tried completely removing and then reinstalling bcmwl-kernel-source and dkms packages from package manager.When I go to Administration -> Hardware Drivers and click on Activate for Broadcom driver, at first there used to be a window which said Downloading and it used to go away after few seconds and nothing used to happen. Then I installed few updates. At the time of writing, I have installed all the available updates. Now after clicking on Activate, I get this error :
Code: Sorry, installation of this driver failed. Please have a look at the log file for detains: /var/log/jockey.log
I have Ubuntu 10.04 installed and can browse the internet via cable, but wireless isnt working. My wireless driver is "Broadcom 802.11b/g WLAN".
In the windows device manager, I found the corresponding inf file to be oem20.inf which I tried to install it through "Setup Windows Driver" but it gave an error saying invalid driver. I also tried installing the Broadcom STA driver, but that didnot help.
I am dual booting with Windows 7, and i installed ubuntu through the windows wubi installer. My laptop is HP Pavilion dv4. I have installed the regular Ubuntu desktop and have made all upgrades. The results from lspci command i have added below.
gowda@ubuntu:~$ lspci 00:00.0 Host bridge: Intel Corporation Mobile 4 Series Chipset Memory Controller Hub (rev 07) 00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Mobile 4 Series Chipset Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 07)
I have having trouble getting my broadcom wifi card working, it is a BCM43225 802.11b/g/n. I did mange to get it to work but after reseting Fedora 15 would not boot. How to get the WiFi card working that would be awesome.
i'm having some difficulties will my wireless on my friends hp dv4. It has a bcm4312 card and so far i've downloaded the kernel headers and the devel pakages, aswell as the broadcom hybrid driver. After i've un tar'd the file i type in make and it come up with
KBUILD_NOPEDANTIC=1 make -C /lib/modules/`uname -r`/build M=`pwd` make: *** /lib/modules/22.214.171.124-61.fc13.i686.PAE/build: No such file or directory. Stop. make: *** [all] Error 2
but as for my knowledge of linux i'm at my limit, if it wasn't for Archive Manager i probably wouldn't have been able to untar the file
Got up this morning and switched on theLinux Box and started getting wifi connect problems. I could work for about 5 mins then it would start searching and asking me to confirm to connect to my network.After some time NM kept on asking all the time to confirm the network and key.I reset the router and check to see if other PCs were OK and a Windoze & Linux laptops were fine, no problem there so it's not the routerd.I'm wondering if the broadcomm card is starting to fail as it heats up or could it be a corrupt file or parametersNo updates have been done in the last month, it just started today. Here are the results from the log and dmesg:
[root@mylinux ~]# dmesg | grep b43 b43-pci-bridge 0000:05:01.0: PCI INT A -> GSI 17 (level, low) -> IRQ 17 b43-phy0: Broadcom 4306 WLAN found
Since installing F11, I can no longer connect to WEP-secured wireless. When I use automatic IP settings, the connection simply times out. When I specify an IP, Netmask, Gateway, and DNS server, NetworkManager thinks the connection properly established, but any pings time out, even when I don't specify a hostname (just an IP address). I can connect to (and use) unencrypted wireless. I haven't tried other encryption schemes. The WEP index is 1 and it's non-authenticated (open). I've been playing with the settings for over a week now with no success.
there was a new kernel update that I installed today. I used some kl mod packages to work my broadcom. For some reason its not working after the kernel. Is there a way I can recompile the driver or so?
Ive just installed Fedora 12 on my laptop (HP Pavilion DV4 1213la- i also have Windows 7) and wifi wasnt working at all (Broadcom BCM4312)So i thought, lets google it!, i pluged it to my router and i had internet working just fine.
After goggling for an hour i found a website where some guy had a problem similar to mine (couldnt connect to internet by WIFI with the same Network Controller BUT on Fedora 11)[URL] and as a response they told him to install the packages using " yum install broadcom-wl wl-kmod "So i did that, it downloaded some stuff (i didnt see what it was :S), but then said something like "No packages available broadcom-wl" and "No packages available wl-kmod"I tought it had done something so i did as the website told me, reboot my computer.
When it turned back on, not only wifi wasnt working but now i cant even connect by cable, i plug it in and nothing happens (not even the little lights from the port)So my question is, is there any way to restore whatever that command did?
My kernal version is 126.96.36.199-45.fc14.i686 (2.6.35). I have installed fedora 14. I dont have a wired network connection , so as mentioned in one the threads [URL]... i downloaded the RPM fusion of the driver and followed the steps. This is the first time m installing linux ,i have no idea if my kernel is kmod version. But when tried installing any of those codes provided it gave an err saying NOTHING TO DO. But my network manager doesn't show the wlan. It still says driver firmware missing. When checked the loaded kernel it did have ssb and b4. I did blacklist them. But reappears everytime i check and wl is not loaded.CAN anyone please help me know wat I should do?
I can't get my Broadcoam BCM4322 to connect to a protected access point. I've tried the drivers from rpmfusion, and tried to build the module with the source+binary package from Broadcom, all with no luck. The failure seems to happen during the WPA negotiation.
I haven't tried connecting to an unsecured WiFi access point.
When booting this same laptop to Kubuntu 9.04, it can connect to secured, so it is possible under linux.
Here's output from lspci, and the tail of the log while KNetworkManager is trying to connect the device.
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
You know, I thought I had my Broadcom issues all figured out, I have a simple list of installing the RPM Fusion repos do a yum update and yum install kmod-wl and everything works.However, this time it didn't work. I am installing a new fedora 14 for a friend who is totally fed up with windows and I get this error: (Yes I have searched the internet and Fedora forums for an answer)
I have tried the two yum suggestions and they don't work I have tried updating the kernel and have installed kernel-devel-'uname -r' (suggested by another site) I have tried installing broadcom-wl and b43-openfwwf which only knocked out the card entirely
i am using broadcom wireless (4312) on my laptop with FC15 and configured it using [URL]. initially it ran great without any problem (for a week). but from yesterday, every 15 minutes or so, my wifi started getting disconnected, showing the wireless login screen . I can reconnect only by rebooting or restarting network manager service.
I have an HP Pavilion notebook with a Broadcom WLANcard that had been working very nicely in Fedora Core 10 until this evening, when I took my notebook to a conference room where there was no internet access. (I tried to connect to wireless networks, but there were none in the area, as I discovered.) am now unable to connect to my local (home) wireless network as the device is now non-existent . Can someone please walk me through the steps to fix this or re-install it (I have tried reinstalling broadcom-wl, but that didn't help). My lspci listing is reproduced below:
Code: 00:00.0 Host bridge: Intel Corporation Mobile 945GM/PM/GMS, 943/940GML and 945GT Express Memory Controller Hub (rev 03)
I have had a search around, any cannot find any thing I can make sense of as to how I go about getting the above card to work with Fedora 11. Just done a fresh install (need Linux for some development) but have no wifi. My chipset is this Broadcom BCM4310. There seems to be a whole load of options, and I don't know which works and which don't:
kmod-wl broadcom-wl ndiswrapper
I can sit with an Ethernet cable to install/update as necessary, but really could do with wireless.
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:
02:00.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4318 [AirForce One 54g] 802.11g Wireless LAN Controller (rev 02) Subsystem: ASUSTeK Computer Inc. WL-138G V2 802.11g WLAN PCI Card Flags: bus master, fast devsel, latency 64, IRQ 21
I've got the b43 driver and firmware installed, and the system comes up fine, but the max throughput on the wlan0 is about 100Kb/s. My laptop and iwl do about 2.5Mbps from the same location in the house. The signal is plenty strong:
wlan0 IEEE 802.11bg ESSID:"sar2" Mode: Managed Frequency:2.422 GHz Access Point: 00:23:69:22:5C:00 Bit Rate=36 Mb/s Tx-Power=20 dBm Retry min limit:7 RTS thr:off Fragment thr:off Power Management:off Link Quality=61/70 Signal level=-49 dBm Noise level=-57 dBm Rx invalid nwid:0 Rx invalid crypt:0 Rx invalid frag:0 Tx excessive retries:0 Invalid misc:0 Missed beacon:0
Is this expected from the b43 driver and a bcm4318? I was hoping for much better throughput. Also, I tried the broadcom-wl driver, but it doesn't seem to recognize the card. It looks like it's not supported from their site, only the 4311,12,21,22 were listed, although I see posts where other people claim they are using it with a 4318?
I am succesfully installed a Dell wireless card with Broadcom 4328 shipset using ndiswrapper and rpm sources on Fedora 12 188.8.131.52-127.fc12.i686.PAE. Now I am using original Win drivers but the wifi conection is very slow and unstable.
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 :
HTML Code: broadcom-wl-184.108.40.206-1.fc13.noarch.rpm kmod-wl-220.127.116.11-1.fc13.5.x86_64.rpm
I just installed Fedora (15) for the first time. 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.
