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.
I have ubuntu 10.04 netbook edition on my usb. But, when I go to install it, by restarting and then clicking F12 (is F12 the right one?) and the menu comes up.

My Dell Vostro 1520's Dell Wireless 1397 WLAN Mini-Card must not have been set-up correctly, as the Network Manager won't even let me select the wireless tab. Please just explain to me, step by step, what exactly I must do to make it work! Additionally, I can't figure out how to disable my Touchpad's Tap to Click funtionality, which must be done if I'm to effectively use my current KDE installation of openSUSE
Can not get Ubuntu 11.04 to recognize my Dell 1390 Mini Card WLAN. IT works fine with a Ethernet connection but does not find my WLAN. Can someone please offer so much desired help? I have a Inspiron 1521 with an AMD 64X Processor.
My wireless device is an integrated Dell Wireless 1397 WLAN Mini-Card, I am unsure about the driver I have in use. I am sure I have a driver installed because the configuration screen shows my network. I currently have the computer plugged into my network via CAT 5 but I would like to be able to use the wireless (obviously.) I am using Open SuSE version 11.2 and I have run the updater. I could not see my wireless network before running the updater and I can now so I know that the updates have helped but I am again stuck. I have tried to search the wireless forum and I have tried to tinker with the settings in YaST , but nothing seems to be working. Reading the Welcome page of the wireless forum, I tried the Broadcom chip-set advice:
I have read and taken to heart the advice given for receiving help and if any more is needed I will gladly give it. I have a small amount of experience with SuSE Enterprise edition so I can understand some technical stuff but I am best at following specific instructions.
Inspiron 1525 - Wireless 1395 WLAN Mini-Card I passed two days browsing the net looking for a solution to my problem but no way.. Im running ubuntu 10.10 in my inspiron via VirtualBox and my wireless card is not detected by ubuntu.. I installed the bcmwl6.inf driver with the wrapper and it show me in wireless window that the hardware is not present.. So checked that in the terminal by typing :
I recently installed Ubuntu Netbook Remix on my Dell Inspiron Mini 10, and for some reason it isn't detecting any wireless networks. The wireless works perfectly fine when I boot to Windows XP on the netbook, but not when I'm using Ubuntu. I tried troubleshooting using this htmlAt the "check for device recognition" step, the terminal tells me that it's disabled, but as far as I can tell there isn't a physical switch that allows me to turn the wireless on or off, and again, it works perfectly fine when I use XP. What should I do?
I have a Dell Inspiron 1525 laptop using Dell Wireless 1395 WLAN Mini-card (This is what Windows Vista says I have). I have installed Ubuntu as dual boot with existing Windows Vista. Wireless is not working in Ubuntu but working flawlessly in Windows.

I have a persistent liveusb with ubuntu 9.10 that I installed using the method on [url]
I use it on a Dell Inspiron Mini 9 netbook (that boots Mac OS X from its SSD). An ubuntu persistent liveusb works just great for occasional linux development and testing, but ubuntu 9.10 will be EOL next year, and I want to stay current.
I've installed ubuntu 10.04.1 LTS on a liveusb using the method on [url]
After I've booted the liveusb, under the network menu I see this:
Wireless Networks Device not ready
A menu appears that looks like a PCI card with a lock on it. I select the only item under that menu, "Install Drivers". This gives a dialog that says "No proprietary drivers are in use on this system. Proprietary drivers do not have public source code..." etc. Under Ubuntu 9.10, I could at this point select "Broadcom STA wireless driver" and click the "Activate" button, and it would work. So I did that in 10.04.1.
It says, "Downloading and installing driver..."
While it's doing this, the "kerneloops" menu item appears. Then a dialog that says,
Sorry, the package "bcmwl-kernel-source 126.96.36.199 +bdcom-0ubuntu3" failed to install or upgrade.
Then another dialog that says
SystemError: installArchives() failed.
What the heck is happening here?
Well, it turns out that the error messages are wrong. I restarted and the DM9/ubuntu 10.04.1 was able to connect to the wireless network.
tl;dr: Proprietary wireless driver installation works, but it claims that it doesn't.
I can't get WLAN up on my Dell Mini 10v (BCM 4312)/openSUSE 11.3/LXDE. And yes, I have thoroughly read iwfingers's 'Getting your Wireless to Work'. After installing openSUSE 11.3 ifconfig can see eth0, l0 and wlan0. No WLAN running. dsmesq|grep firmware prompts me to '/usr/sbin/install_bcm43xx_firmware"
After having done that and reboot ifconfig can only see eth0 and l0. Installing broadcom-wl-188.8.131.52-7.pm.16.4.i586.rpm broadcom-wl-kmp-default-184.108.40.206_k220.127.116.11_12-7.pm.16.4.i586.rpm (current ones from Packman) does, Shall I try to install the drivers without installing the firmware first?
Why does broadcom-wl-kmp-default-18.104.22.168_k22.214.171.124_12-7.pm.16.4.i586.rpm install a new default kernel? Ubuntu Netbook Remix 9.04 had no problems with WLAN.
I installed ubuntu 10.10 and everything worked fine for two days (and I fell in love with linux) but now I can not connect to a wireless connection. Did I mention I am new to linux and have been working on this problem for a couple of days. My wireless card is 1395 WLAN Mini-Card I think I have the b43 driver installed. I have reinstalled the driver and linux but to no effect.
i want to install ubuntu in my dell..ive already installed one in my desktop can i use that installer to my dell mini inspiron 10?? i have a usb hard drive..or better to use usb stick? well what about blackbuntu? seems awesome can i install that in my dell?
How to fix window lay out of GIMP in Dell Inspiron mini. Because every time I open GIMP the layout change and difficult to work ?I found GIMP -2.6.8 version how can I install this version to my computer. Since, I have some problems when using gimp-2.4.5.
I am stuck in 800x576 resolution and don't know how to escape. I've tried changing xorg.conf but that caused my machine to grind to a halt and I had to copy the original .conf file back over before I could launch GNOME again. I've run lspci | grep VGA, and this is what I get:
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation System Controller Hub (SCH Poulsbo) Graphics Controller (rev 07) When I run xrandr --verbose, I get:

I'm trying to install Photran for Eclipse 3.6. I've managed to get 3.6 and it works but the next step involves choosing a package that I just can't see because my screen resolution is too small.
i've installed openSUSE 11.2/KDE. Installation process finishes with fun. The first thing that i wanted in my laptop don't work. That's wireless internet. I've google and google. saw many thereds in openSUSE forms and check what i understand after reading thereds. Finally what i understand is i've to install firmware. I've downloaded the b43-fwcutter and broadcom-wl-126.96.36.199.tar. Installed b43-fwcutter. and copy broadcom-wl-188.8.131.52.tar. in to root. by using
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.
I'm having problems with wifi on my Dell Inspiron 1501. According to the specifications, it has a "Dell Wireless 1390 WLAN MiniCard". I could not activate the device. I have installed openSUSE 11.4 with GNOME.
This card has been the bane of my existence for a while. In the old days I could get it to work with Fedora using a generic video driver. A friend recommended OpenSuse because of my love for KDE.
The good news is that install went greeeeat. But after that, I once again got a black screen with a line randomly done it. Is there a way to change? I tried changing those resolution options but it didn't work. I have the Windoze driver from Dell's site. Its Dell Inspiron 5160.
i have a dell inspiron 15r that i plan on running fedora on, however, today i booted fedora from a live cd and it was completely oblivious to the fact that i have a wireless card, obviously i need certain drivers for it, problem is i dont know what drivers those would be, or where to get them, http://www.dell.com/us/business/p/inspiron-15r/pd this is my laptop model, and it says i have a "Standard Dell Wireless 1501 802.11 g/n" wireless card, if anyone could tell me how to get this working,
I recently upgraded from 10.4 to 11.4 on my Dell Inspiron laptop, and now my wireless is completely disabled, and I do not have an ethernet cord I can use. (I do not have internet access at home, I rely on public wifi.)
