OpenSUSE Wireless :: 'Broadcom Corporation BCM4312 802.11' Can't Connect To The Internet?
Jan 16, 2011
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:
lspci | grep -i network
came up with this result:
If you haven't added any repositories to your system you will need to do so before using zypper to install the required packages below. (instruction on how to do this under heading add repositories below)
Short Fix (This fix works if you haven't already installed b43-fwcutter firmware, and the b43, ssb kernel drivers are not load.)
zypper remove b43-fwcutter zypper in broadcom-wl broadcom-wl-kmp-desktop modprobe wl reboot (and wifi worked after I activated it using FN F3 to turn it on) Long fix if required code....
List of Repo's I have added 1. main (contrib) 2. Mozilla 3. Packman 4. Wine 5. Kde Extra's
Packman and Main (contrib) are the most likely sources of the required files.
Once you have added these you should be good to install the required files.
One final note, I had to use an external usb wifi card to connect to the internet to add the repo's and download the required software. Lan card support coming in 2.6.38 kernel (it is suppose to add a driver for our lan card).
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
My wireless isnt working on my HP 6735s Notebook.Theres no drivers in the driver manager nor does it find my network.The wireless indicator on my laptop also shows my wireless is turned off even when i press the button to turn it on.
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 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..
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
Dell Studio 1735 w/BCM4312 WEP fails to connect even though I'm using the 10 character HEX key. It connects fine when there's no security on my Linksys WRT310N router. Ubuntu, Windows 7, my Samsung TV and TiVo all connect fine with the 10 character HEX key, but with opensuse 11.4 I can't connect.
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 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.
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 have a problem here with my updated kernel. I'm currently using Fedora 14 kernel 188.8.131.52-64, 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 184.108.40.206-72, 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:
I recently installed Ubuntu x64 on my dell studio 1535 using the windows installer (wubi).
All seems to be working fine apart from the built in wireless card, the proprietary driver (found in hardware drivers) installs and activates successfully and works perfectly. Until I shut down or restart the system. On the next boot the wireless card is 'disabled' and no longer works.
The card I have is a Broadcom Corporation BCM4312 802.11b/g
I am going to try a proper install on a second partition rather than using wubi later on but wondered if this was a commonly occuring problem?
The wireless card works as soon as the driver installs, however I am shown a "restart to activate driver" message and after restarting it's dead.
I recently bought Dell Studio 15 laptop, installed OpenSUSE11.2/64 in addition to Win7 64 bit. I am trying to connect it to my wireless network at home and at work, but without much luck.
1)Found out that Dell 1520 WLAN adapter has Broadcom 4353 chipset. 2)saw that b43-fwcutter installed 3)installed broadcom-wl and broadcom-wl-kmp-desktop
After that can see many wireless Access Points at home,selected one via NetworkManager (eth1), configured it (incl. security same as in Win7), it goes from Activating to Active, but I still can not connect - I mean, in the FireFox - "page not found"
I have an Acer Aspire One D255 netbook with opensuse 11.3 installed and after several painstaking days of tinkering I successfully installed the broadcom wl drivers, and now my wifi card is operational. However, i can connect to my wireless network, but still have no internet access. I have searched the forums and google for a solution but most issues I have found that are similar to mine have been resolved once the wl drivers and firmware where installed
I've reinstalled Slackware 4 times today because of things I've messed up along my way, after upgrading the linux kernel I've had issues with getting back to desktop, so I'm on a clean slate right now with the exception of installing wicd. I need help since wireless is not working.. My wireless worked fine out of the box with Ubuntu,I don't understand why it is not working now... Using Slackware 13.1, Kernel 220.127.116.11
bash-4.1# ifconfig wlan0 up SIOCSIFFLAGS: No such file or directory
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.
ok so i have the new suse 11.2 installed it on my laptop with the intel wifi 5100 and i have no problem finding my network and connecting to it i can ping it i can log into it from firefox but i caanot access the internet if i try to go to google or ping a website nothing anyone envcounter this
I have had a Broadcom Corporation BCM4318 since Fedora 10. In addition, both Fedora 10 and 11 wouldn't recognize the card with out third-party drivers. I was pretty excited when I booted the 12 Live CD and it recognized it at boot.
Since this is my lab box I thought its time to give Fedora 12 a try.
I did an DVD upgrade from 11 to 12 and rebooted. The Broadcom came up fine this time. I did a yum upgrade to finish from whatever was not on the DVD and rebooted. This time no 'b43' network card was recognized. I still had my third part driver files so I:
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]...
Linux is what i'd like to learn, so Howdy to all and i hope to speak to you all regularly in short, I started with Ubuntu Linux about 6 months ago, Didn't like it, i researched various distro's and came across, PC Linux OS, it was really cool, But i couldn't get it to connect Wirelessly, so i tried something else... the bottom line is i finally settled on SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop 11, i seem to like it a lot.Ok.. now that introductions are out of the way
Background info: I've installed SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop 11 on my Sony Vaio Laptop (VGN-NW15G) with no major issues, after a bit of mucking around, i got the LAN to Connect to the internet, after some more mucking around, i figured out how to get the WLAN to connect to the internet.MY Goal: To be able to Wirelessly Network my Laptop with My PC.so that i can access the files on the PC, From my laptop, and Vice Versa, but the important thing is to first be able to access the PC files from the Laptop.
NOTE: My PC has 4 Hard Drives (1 for the O/s, 3 Backups) they are all configured and Shared correctly for Networking and Wireless networking, and all the permissions are set correctly.Hardware and Software Environments:My Laptop : Sony Vaio VGN-NW15GOperating System : SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop 11Wireless Capable, and has no issues Wireless Networking when running of a Hard Drive Loaded with Win 7 Ultimate 32bit, Therefore all Hardware is Compatible
My PC (Custom Built) Operating System : Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit SP1 Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-X58-UD3R Rev1.0
I installed OpenSUSE 11.3 with disabled WLAN (otherwise the installation process didn't start). Now the system boots only in Safe Mode with enabled WLAN card (when the WLAN card is disabled it also boots in normal mode though). But even if I try to configure the WLAN card in Safe Mode, the system doesn't boot next time (in Safe Mode) until I add "brokenmodules=ssb" parameter. As I understand after reading this forum I should install a firmware/driver, but there is no install_bcm43xx_firmware script in /usr/sbin directory.
Currently my setup is a road runner cable modem connected to a desktop via a ethernet cable. The networkmanager lists "Broadcom BCM440-BO 100BaseTX" device not managed. I've turned off the power to both the cable modem and the computer. I then turned on the power to the cable modem and then the computer. If I try the firefox browser, it can not connect to the internet.
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'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 had a wireless connection to open suse from last year. I then had a problem with my Netgear 824 router. I have reconnected to windows vista. Now I have to get opensuse working on wireless. I do not have much experience in opensuse I have read the forums and the sticky and also from wicd forums. I have checked the yast settings and it is for AR242x ath0 and Wired L2 100 eth0.
Details:- Opensuse version 11 ,2.6.25-1.1 default Laptop ASus F5RL Atheros AR242x I have done the following:-
I have just recently installed Open SUSE 11.2 from a CD I got from a Linux Magazine.Installed this fine as a dual-boot machine on my HP laptop.To access the Internet, I have normally used 2 ways:1. WIFI Connection via my home desktopUsing Netgear WG111v3 USB Adapter.2. Virgin Broadband USB Mobile Broadband stickI have no problem connecting this via my Windows Vista operating system.Somehow, under Open SUSE 11.2, this is a problem. 2. Virgin Broadband - I managed to get the Virgin Broadband icon of a mobile phone saying that it's connected and "Active" by keying in the number "*99#", username/password as blank and APN as VirginBroadband". However, when I launch Firefox browser, I couldn't get to any external Website even though the icon for the Virgin Broadband says that it's Active and connected.
So what's the problem ?1. WIFI Connectivity to Home Desktop WIFI - with this I have never never got any connection at all. It kept saying "Activating" and I have set up the connection and entered the WEP 128-bit paraphrase hex digits. I managed to scan and got the correct SSID and as I know they belong to my desktopI read somewhere that Netgear WG111v3 is not compatible with Open Suse 11.2 and will need to install the driver for this. So I did obtain the .INF file and installed ndiswrapper -i with the .inf file.. However, still not successful.I'm thinking of buying a Belkin USB Adapter which is in the list of compatible USB WIFI Adapter for Open Suse 11.2 - .. the 802.11g chipset.. as I couldn't get this to work
