SUSE / Novell :: Open - 11.1 Does Not Recognize My Broadcom Wireless Card

Feb 12, 2010

I am running openSuse 11.1 64 bit on my hp pavilion dv6458se; and am unable to get my Broadcom wireless card to work.

i tried reading a few forums, but they all start when 'lspci' recognizes the card.

My problem is that 'lspci' does not show any 'Broadcom' card.

I have given below the output of 'lspci' for your reference.

Jun 22, 2010

I am running opensuse 11.2 on my hp 2133 mini notebook, I have been having trouble connecting my broadcom 43xx internal wireless modem to my BT Home Hub, I have looked at the b43 driver that comes pre-bundled with the live dvd and understand that the driver doesnt work, I have looked at the YaST Package Search and to my horror found 50 seperate packages, from: wl-kmp desktop - wireless driver for broadcom 43xx series of chips to sta-pae kernal for 43xx series of chips? How do i know which Kernal and driver i need to get my wireless network running and which i dont?

SUSE / Novell :: Wireless Network Card - Intel 3945ABG - Works Before Last Online Update

Oct 9, 2007

I am running Suse 10.1 on an HP laptop. After my last online update, the wireless card would not start. I can not turn on the Wifi light(there is a button to manually turn it on, but it no longer works).

And i tried the solutions too:
- update the driver
- update the firmware
- even log in as *root* to see if it works.

However, I still can not have the Wifi light lit up as it used to be. This is so odd. Can someone help me out?

SUSE / Novell :: Install Fails To Recognize Ide Hard Drives

Aug 25, 2010

I have an Intel MB (855GME with 6300ESB) that I'm having trouble installing OpenSUSE 11.1 onto the IDE drive. It will install to a SATA drive but for various reasons I need to install on IDE (PATA on 6300ESB). The install fails to find any ide drive (I know the drive/interface works because I can install XP on this same ide drive and boot from it). If I parse the dmesg output I see the message "ata_piix 0000:1f.1 device not available because of BAR 2 (0x0-0x7) collisions". I'm trying to determine if there's some workaround for this. I've tried various kernel parameters and no joy.

I've tried Ubuntu with similar results. Older kernels WILL install onto this same MB/PATA controller (Ubuntu 6.06, 2.6.15 and RHEL4) so it seems that something changed in the ATA driver as the kernel has matured and my bios isn't up to snuff for these pickier drivers.

Fedora Hardware :: F13 Does Not Recognize Broadcom BCM57780 Ethernet Card

Sep 18, 2010

I've just installed F13 on Acer Aspire 5551G with has Broadcom BCM57780 ethernet card. And F13 does not recognize this card: in System > Administration > Network Devices tab is empty (but in Hardware tab the card is listed). So, I can't connect to the Internet

So far I've found:
1) Related bug for F11.
2) Related thread for F12.

I've tried all possible solutions mentioned in both the bug and the thread, but nothing could convince my F13 to like the ethernet card.

Hardware :: Getting Mint 10 Julia GNOME To Recognize Broadcom WiFi Card

Nov 29, 2010

Here are the specs for the computer in question:

Distro: Mint 10 Julia Gnome
Dell Inspiron 1100
2.40 ghz Intel Pentium 4
8 kilobytes primary memory cache
512 kilobytes secondary memory cache
1 Gig MB RAM (2 512mb sticks)
Linksys Wireless-G Notebook Adapter WPC54G V3
CDRW/DVD Optical Drive

From the title of this post, you can see that I am having some trouble getting the Linksys Wireless-G broadcom card working. I have been doing some research and have heard that getting a broadcom card to work in Linux can be a real pain.

I have verified that Mint 10 recognized PCMCIA so I am good there. I installed Wifi-Radar to see if maybe it would recognize it but it did not.

When I type iwconfig, it does not show any wireless signals available. When I originally set up the partitions for this laptop, I used PartedMagic and was able to quickly set up the network on that with vertually no problem what so ever.

Fedora Networking :: 14 Can't Connect To SpeedTouch 585 - Either Wireless Broadcom Card Or The Wired Ethernet Card

Dec 4, 2010

Just installed Fedora 14 from the Live CD i686 on my Dell Inspiron 1521. I can't connect to the SpeedTouch 585 on either wireless broadcom card or the wired Ethernet card.

I can connect to it from the same Laptop on the Vista which is on dual boot on the same laptop.

Further confusing is that I ran Fedora 14 and connected to another SpeedTouch today.

Already checked the Channel on the wireless nic and it's on the same one as the SpeedTouch.

So I just loaded ubuntu 10.10....and it works great...except for my wirelessi've got a broadcom b43 ...i went into system, administration, download additional drivers and downloaded/authenticated a b43 driver, but my machine (hp dv4405) does not recognize any wireless signals. The wireless light on my computer doesnt turn on (there's a button to turn it on and off)'s annoying. I guess broadcom recently released some open source drivers, but I'm having trouble sorting through all the info

SUSE / Novell :: Getting WLAN Working In Open 11

Sep 19, 2008

I have the system recognizing the card by default. I really didn't have to do anything in that regard. It's a Broadcomm A/B/G card. On the other hand, it won't detect any access points. I'm not sure what's wrong. I've tried adding them by hand, but no dice.

For reference, I have automatic updates running of course, the system was installed within the last 12 hours, so nothing's outdated, and the adaptor is a Broadcomm BCM4312 802.11a/b/g card.

SUSE / Novell :: Touchpad Not Working In Open 11.0

Jun 30, 2008

Running GNOME under openSUSE 11, I am unable to use my touchpad for controlling the mouse cursor on-screen. This seems to only affect one profile, as I logged on as another user and can use the touchpad to control the mouse w/o issue. I checked under Control Center > Touchpad and Enable Touchpad is selected, however I cannot control the mouse cursor under my main profile. I don't recall doing anything before to disable this, and also under Sessions in Control Center the startup program Touchpad is selected there. Again, this is only affecting my main profile, as I set up another account for testing and was able to control the cursor with the touchpad. Any ideas of what I need to check to resolve this?

Also, in addition to this, I can use the mouse buttons associated with the touchpad within my main account to control mouse button clicks w/o any problems, just the cursor is unable to move.

SUSE / Novell :: Mplayerplug-in Not Working In Open 11.2

Aug 23, 2010

Just installed opensuse 11.2 (64-bit version) and I have a problem with the Mplayer browser plugin. Basically it comes up OK, I get the MPlayer plugin splash screen and controls exactly as expected, it downloads the media successfully (or at least looks like it does) but then doesn't play, it just reports "Stopped".

Mplayer itself works fine, it's just the browser that doesn't.

System info:

OpenSuse 11.2 (64-bit)
MozillaFirefox 3.5.11-0.1.1-x86_64
mplayer (from packman repo)

SUSE / Novell :: Nokia N70 As 3g Modem On Open 10.2 ?

Sep 22, 2007

I have nokia N70 as 3g modem on my laptop ASUS A3A. I've already configure the modem by using yast and manual config through konsole. When I use yast, it recognized my n70 as a modem and I already configured all the provider settings that I assumed as correct because when I used those config on windows, it works all the time. When I try to connect through knetworkmanager, I can see that on my phone that it was connecting to the internet as a modem but suddenly the connection terminates.

I checked on /var/log/messages for errors and I found this :

I've tried configuring the connection settings several times but I still get the same problem. Then I delete all the settings and configured through konsole.All the configuration was good and my computer detected my n70 gracefully. When I try to connect, the same problem occur which LCP terminated by peer.

This is what i found on /var/log/messages :

SUSE / Novell :: 10.x Open-distro Working With Grsecurity?

Aug 31, 2007

I am using OpenSuse v10.1 and I want to harden my OS, a least for the servers. I do not want to use AppArmor, missing important features (protection for /dev/[k]mem, proc-FS, ASLR,...).

SELinux is too complex for my requirements, recompilation is required for all apps/libs, problem if closed-source.

It further mandates filesystem, bec. of required capabilities and labelling of each file.Once up and running Grsecurity should be relatively trouble-free.

I found some postings in forums referring to the SuSE-Linux pre-9.1-versions.

With 9.0 the 'Suse-Distro' could be run with Vanilla-Kernel patched with grsecurity. In the threads found, there was no clear solution and no indication whether somebody succeeded meanwhile.

I believe many OpenSuse-users were 'auto-migrated' when AppArmor was enabled by default and sticked with it.

Is there some experience available about current versions of OpenSuse, whether there are conflicting portions of Kernel-code-changes, not possible to merge with e.g. the current Suse-Patches?

I do not want to dig into Kernel-Hacking, besides manually resolving some trivial patch-conflicts. Or can I run a recent 10.x version of OpenSuse with Vanilla-Kernel patched with grsecurity?

SUSE / Novell :: Open 11 Losing It's Net Connection - Particularly When Using AMule

Dec 3, 2008

I have been using Open SUSE 10.3 for about a year now and have been very pleased. I am now trying Open SUSE 11, it seems good, loads a lot faster than 10.3 and seems to run a little faster. I have had a few probs but they have been resolved with help from these forums. But I have a big prob remaining and I have no idea what could cause it. For no apparent reason I will lose the connection to the net.It happens mostly when running aMule, it can be downloading fine for some while when suddenly the connection to the servers is lost and it won't reconnect, and then also I can not connect to the net with Google etc. The only way to solve it seems to be to shut down, wait awhile then reboot. It will be OK for a while then the problem re-occurs. There does not seem to be a problem with anything else on the system. I know that the Modem is OK as I have three HDD - 1 running Win XP, 2 - running Open Suse 10.3. 3 - running Open Suse 11 & the prob only occurs with SUSE 11, I do not get this problem with either of the other HDD. I have tried three versions of aMule, with SUSE 11,the one given on YAST - v2.2.2-0, & others from Packman v2.2.1-0, & vSVN, the problem occurs with each version so I think it must lie with SUSE 11. I have opened ports 4662 & 4672 on the firewall, & the setup I use is identical to the one on 10.3 which works faultlessly. I use a NTL Modem connected to the PC via Ethernet.
