Networking :: Wirelss Broadcom 4312 On Dell D620 Not Loading Under CentOS 5 / Sort It?
Jan 20, 2011
I have installed CentOS 5 just downloaded yesterday on a Dell D620. Everything but the wireless card works. So I found this article:
and followed it step by step and was able to complete all of the tasks. The problem is that obviously it still won't start. It is not even recognized as an adapter but when I run lspci -v it is there sure enough. When I look under the networking GUI it is listed there but it has no MAC assigned to it. Please let me know what command output you need to see and I'll get here asap. I have searched this forum and other sites and nothing so far has worked.
Im having problems making my wireless card "Broadcom 4312" work on centos 5.4 X64 , i have installed and built the driver from their official site and inserted its module successfully, but whenever i try to avtivate the interface "called eth1" i get the following
Error for wireless request "Set Encode" (8B2A) : SET failed on device eth1 ; Invalid argument. Error for wireless request "Set Encode" (8B2A) : SET failed on device eth1 ; Invalid argument.
I've already got the b43-fwcutter package and a driver called 'b43' appears in System > Administration > Hardware Drivers but it does not seem to enable. Another, Broadcom STA wireless driver, does enable, but I'm not picking up the wireless signal.
I have a DEll Mini 9 - it has worked fine even though it has a limited memory. But Husband only uses to have a surf. It now wont connect to net. The Broadcom4312 Wireless Card is not working on Obunto. It has a Dell 802.11b/g Wireless LAN Mini card installed and Obunto Edition Version 8.04 Have phoned Dell and after several calls on Hold for over 15 mins each time and getting nowhere fast i am coming to you guys/girls. I am not a very good comp person, but i do get by and i am trying, so be gentle with me. in simplistic terms.
I just put 10.10 on my D830 and I love it except for a delay when I'm using the internet. When I click on a link while surfing the web it takes about 13 seconds before it responds. After that it works just fine.
My Windows 7 PC and my Macbook Pro don't do that so I'm guessing it has something to do with Ubuntu.
I just installed 11.04 on my Dell Latitude D620, and I'm not able to get an Ethernet connection. (Which in turn means I can't get wireless drivers.) Whenever I plug in an ethernet cable to the port and select auto eth0, the networking icon on Ubuntu's status bar flickers between the obtaining wifi animation and a spinning cursor. In a couple minutes I get the "wired network - disconnected" message.
After some serious trouble with Plasma, I decided to re-install 9.10. When booting up, I noticed that the wireless indicator light stayed on orange which usually means that the driver is not loaded.
I have a Broadcom 4312 in a HP Pavilion dv6. I checked the repository but no driver shows up. I seem to remember that it used to be there. Or am I mistaken and do I need to install the vendor driver from the Broadcom site?
I've added the output of lspci and dmesg | gre b43
I have an HP 2133 Mini-Note [KX869AT] with a Broadcom 4312 wireless card. I've had Ubuntu 10.04 on my machine for a few weeks now and everything was great until my wireless card abruptly stopped working. It doesn't detect any wireless networks,uch less connect to them. I tried reinstalling the proprietary driver, but that hasn't worked.
i just got ubuntu yesterday and had to play around with some settings and the fw-cutter tool to get my wireless working and it was...although i upgraded the kernel to 2.6.32-25-eneric...and it stopped working. the simple solution is to use the previous kernelersion...the wireless works there, but thats just not good enough for me ... it recognizes my card is there it just wont connect. originally i was using b43 driver and now it does not show in the system>hardware drivers list only the sta driver does, although when i try to install and activate it i get the error message "sorry, installation of this driver failed.please have a look at the log file for details: /var/log/jockey.log"
This week I picked up a Dell Studio Hybrid and installed CentOS on it. I originally used 5.0 since I already had the DVD and the network card wasn't recognized at all (lspci recognized it but the card didn't show up in system-config-network). I then downloaded the 5.2 DVD and installed that. The network card then showed up in system-config-network but it still didn't work. If DHCP is enabled it tells me that no link is present, and if I manually configure it, I still can't ping the router. lspci reports the following about the network card:
I have a Dell latitude D620, suspended to ram and resumed and when I move the mouse the display goes crazy. It looks like an old TV with the horizontal hold messed up. IIRC this runs an intel video card, I'll double check when I get home.
I have been running 32 bit karmic (and before that jaunty, intrepid and hardy) with no problems on my Dell D620 laptop. Since I upgraded to lucid, I get occasional freezes. It often happens at the gnome login screen after I click on my name but before I can enter the password, or upon restore from suspend but sometimes at other times. It doesn't happen all the time but often enough to be really annoying. When the freeze occurs, the mouse pointer responds to the touchpad or an external usb mouse, but no mouse button events are recognized and the keyboard has no effect either. I can't switch virtual terminals or anything. If the system was up and had a DHCP address at the time of the freeze, I believe the network still responds to ping. The only thing I can do to get the system back is hold the power button for 30 seconds until it powers off. The desktop CPU temperature monitor does not indicate excessive heating at the time of the freeze. I don't know whether I should try a re-install of lucid, or just go back to karmic.
Hi,I'm using a Dell Lattitude D620 laptop. I just installed the latest kernel 2.6.38 in my Squeeze amd64 :
Output of uname -r 2.6.38-bpo.2-amd64
Now I'm running on new kernel,everything seems fine except my wifi ( now I'm connected through ethernet ). Before I do the process with the guide in http://wiki.debian.org/wl to activate my wifi,I'd like to ask for some advice here,is this latest kernel support my wifi card? If yes,how to activate it?
Well I see there is a lot of people which have problems with BCM4312 I read that topics but my problem kind of different..I installed 11.3 few day ago at my job. Everything was just fine...First of all I'm installed firmware
Code: install_bcm43xx_firmware Wireless worked fine...
I'm finding a hard time getting my wireless card to work, my laptop is a Dell Inspiron 1525 and this is all the info: 0b:00.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4312 802.11b/g (rev 01) 0b:00.0 0280: 14e4:4315 (rev 01) [ 8.375610] b43-phy0: Broadcom 4312 WLAN found (core revision 15) [ 8.390374] b43-phy0 ERROR: FOUND UNSUPPORTED PHY (Analog 6, Type 5, Revision 1) [ 8.390436] b43: probe of ssb0:0 failed with error -95
When I first had partitioned, and formatted appropriately, I installed the newest version of Ubuntu available (Time of posting 10.4), on the partition made with bootcamp, rebooted into Linux with rEFIt Now once I booted into 10.4 I got to the desktop, it started asking me about restricted hardware drivers, so I went into System > Administration > Hardware Drivers, It then searched for the drivers, it found the STA driver, and the B43 driver, I am unable to allow both. So I went on to try ndiswrapper, I downloaded it off another pc, compiled and installed on the iMac. then I got the driver off the Leopard install disk, put that on my flash drive, extracted the files from the installer, put that on the flash drive, then I went back over to the machine in question, copied the file to the desktop, I used the cd command to navigate to the folder, then ran ndiswrapper -i bmcwl6.inf, I made sure that the inf and sys files were in there, so I didn't know what was going on exactly.
So then I went into the software sources, and enabled the cd as a software source, then went into Synaptic, and installed the drivers, it said the install was successful, however when I go back to enable it, will still refuse to activate, I have looked all around for solutions, I have even checked out other threads on this matter. The funny thing seems to be, is that everyone, or almost everyone who has this card on their computer, are upgrading to 10.04, when it worked on a previous version.
after finally installing 11.3, I found that my wireless NIC had stopped working. I've spent about 4 hours trying various online tutorials to get the card working, but I'm still right where I was when I began. The card as reported by lspci:
I have a Dell Inspiron E4300 provided to me by my employer. I have installed CentOS 5 without much of a problem. The only issue is the wifi isn't working (doh!). I've had much experience with this kind of thing in the past (FreeBSD/ndiswrapper) with successes. Here are some details:
The device does not appear in dmesg :(I have installed ndiswrapper (dkms-ndiswrapper and ndisgtk from RPMForge) and provided it with the correct Windows XP driver. It has installed the driver and ndisgtk tells me that the hardware is present.
I tried Ubuntu before and because the wireless kept giving me error i stopped using linux for a while and now i'm back to give it another try and hopefully stay with linux, so help me out please. thanks in advance.

When I freshly installed my Ubuntu 10.04, broadcom wireless worked after I installed the driver using hardware manager. But somehow it got de-activated, and not its not working. I need help related to that. Here is some output which might help you to understand the problem.
