Ubuntu Networking :: (11.04) Using Broadcom BCM4311 802.11b/g WLAN On Lenove 3000 N100


I have Lenovo Notebook 3000 N100 with built in wireless - Broadcom BCM4311 802.11b/g. The seems to be properly installed(as per the screen shots) but still I can not see any wireless networks. I checked out most of the forum but could not find any exactly matching situation. find the attached results of the below command which might give you idea : sudo lshw -C network

As per one of the screen shot it seems that "This drive is activated and currently in use" still I can not see any routers(including mine) which I can connect. Also the Wifi LED is not glowing.

General :: Kubuntu 11.04 And Broadcom BCM4311 Wireless Not Working?
Yet another Linux newbie with wireless problems I'm afraid. I saw some postings that appear very similar but I don't have any Linux experience and don'h to make uncontrolled changes to the environment without expert advice.Background: I have an old laptop (HP Pavilion dv9000) with Vista installed and a troubled history (overheating motherboard failure), so I put it on the shelf and replaced it with a new Windows 7 laptop (Dell Studio 1555). But I have been intrigued by the Ubuntu reviews and thought I would dig out the old laptop and install Kubuntu 11.04 (replacing the 2 Vista partitions with a single Kubuntu partition).

Kubuntu installation was easy and I am impressed by the Kubuntu interface, but I soon noticed that it was not detecting my wireless router, which works fine for everything else (Dell, Sony Bravia TV and also an internet radio). The wired connection is okay (using it now) so I guessed the problem was Kubuntu notognising the Broadcom BCM4311.The network interface tool shows the wired connection but the Wireless tab is greyed out.I also installed Wicd Network Manager but that just confirmed what I knew.I noticed other threads have asked for the lspci and lsusb details so here they are:

lspci
00:00.0 RAM memory: nVidia Corporation C51 Host Bridge (rev a2)
00:00.1 RAM memory: nVidia Corporation C51 Memory Controller 0 (rev a2)

General :: Unable To Connect To Wireless Network - Broadcom BCM4311
I was told by an experienced Linux user/IT professional that older Broadcom wireless cards had embedded code preventing access through non-Windows OS's. I was told that there were drivers that were basically "hacks" for skirting this issue. I've tried two different drivers and neither seems to be doing the trick. My current driver is the "Broadcom STA wireless driver".

Symptoms

Recognizes my network and others
Says it's connected
Won't load any web pages
Frequently asks for authentication
I've authenticated using my network password and my router's security key

Here's what the terminal says about my wireless card:

05:00.0 Network controller [0280]: Broadcom Corporation BCM4311 802.11b/g WLAN [14e4:4311] (rev 01)
Subsystem: AMBIT Microsystem Corp. Device [1468:0422]
Flags: bus master, fast devsel, latency 0, IRQ 19
Memory at d0000000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=16K]
Capabilities: <access denied>
Kernel driver in use: wl
Kernel modules: wl, ssb

Networking :: Broadcom PCI Wlan Card On Alix Board
I'm having trouble setting up new Alix URL... system with a wireless card. I got the card from an old working Buffalo AirStation router. The card is a WLI-MPCI-G54 and is using Broadcom BCM4306 chip. I've installed Debian on the system.My goal is to make a wireless access point by using hostapd authentication service. I thought it might be a good idea to verify that the wlan-card is working properly first, but it can't seem to detect my local wlan.

CentOS 5 Hardware :: WLAN - No Luck (BCM4311 / BCM 2050) - Network Or NetworkManager Sees Any Of Wireless Networks
After reading and trying tons of tutorials and several OS reinstalls, I'm stuck trying to load wireless on my Dell Vostro 1400 laptop. Before you say search forums! I hurry to tell I did. No solution seems to work. WLAN chipset - Broadcom's BCM4311 / BCM 2050. 1st scenario - native CentOS 5.3 drivers Although CentOS recognize WLAN card and displays it's name correctly, neither network or NetworkManager sees any of wireless networks.

2nd scenario - Broadcom's drivers Most know Broadcom has released Linux drivers. I had some more luck with them than in 1st scenario although problems occur. After successfully compiling Kernel module, wireless networks are discovered and can be successfully connected but no pages load. It seems like DNS is not resolving at all and page loading timeouts instantly. Tested on TKIP-encrypted network.

Ubuntu Networking :: Unable To Install Wireless Driver For Broadcom 802.11b/g WLAN
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.

Fedora Networking :: Broadcom WLAN Suddenly Stopped Working?
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:

Ubuntu Networking :: Broadcom B44 Ethernet Controller Not Working After Patching Wlan Driver
I patched my wireless driver in order to support packet injection. Using this tutorial:

- Install the Firmware:

Code:

- Create new directory:

Code:

- Now disconnect Internet and unload all your driver (use rmmod command)

- Move/copy the Compat-Wireless patched in /usr/src/drivers directory and unpack the drivers:

Code:

Blacklist the wl driver: (STA driver)

Code:

Currently I'm running Ubuntu 10.10, Kernel 2.5.35-29-generic. I have a Broadcom 4318 for my WLAN and a Broadcom 4401-B0 for my ethernet. I followed the tutorial and I managed to get packet injection working on my WLAN; however, my ethernet connection isn't working. I tried sudo modeprobe b44, but I get the following message:

FATAL: Error inserting b44 (/lib/modules/2.6.35-29-generic/kernel/drivers/net/b44.ko): Invalid argument

Ubuntu Networking :: Broadcom WLAN - Connection Refuses To Load Anything Off The Internet / Local Network
I dual boot windows xp and ubuntu 10.04 LTS and the wireless card works perfectly fine in xp so I know its not a hardware/network issue. In ubuntu, it detects wireless networks, will connect to network and work for about 20 seconds.

and it continues on after this alternating between a normal 20ms and high ping over 200ms. The connection refuses to load anything off the internet/local network.

Red Hat :: No Static IP Possible With WLAN Adapter Broadcom
I have freshly installed RHEL 5.4 on a Dell Inspiron with WLAN adapter Broadcom 4318. The original driver bcm43xx did not work. So I installed ndiswrapper for using the windows driver.Now I can connect via DHCP, but when I try to assign a static IP address, it still uses the IP address provided by the router (AVM Fritzbox 7270). I always did ifdown/ifup and the static IP and everything else is present in /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth1. But ifconfig always shows the IP address assigned by the router. When I switch off the DHCP server of the router I can't connect to the network anymore. The LAN adapter Broadcom 4400 is working well with a static IP address.

Fedora Hardware :: Acer Aspire 3820tg Wlan Broadcom BCM43225?
My laptop is the one mentioned in the title. And it's completely offline at the moment.

Code:
$iwconfig
lo no wireless extensions.
Seem to have some troublesome chips.
Code:
$ lspci
03:00.0 Ethernet controller: Atheros Communications AR8151 v1.0 Gigabit Ethernet (rev c0)
05:00.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM43225 802.11b/g/n (rev 01)
code....

although in my case they should be for the 2.6.33.3-85.fc13.x86_64 kernel.

And I've been searching that repo for ages now, and I can't seem to find anything with kmod-wl or broadcom in there. I'm well aware that this is most likely because of my own ignorance as to the build up of said repo.

Ubuntu Networking :: BCM4311 Not Working Using STA Drivers?
I'm having a strange problem with my wireless card (I never had troubles with it so I'd be glad if you could help me in making it work again). I have installed the restricted STA driver for my Broadcom BCM4311 wireless card, and apparently the card is recognized, and in fact I can "see" the available wireless networks and connect to my one.

The strange things is that even if I connect to my network I can't navigate. If I link an ethernet cable, start navigating and after disconnect the ethernet and keep using only the wireless, I can navigate without problems.

Ubuntu Networking :: 11.04 BCM4311 Drivers Installed - But No Internet ?
I installed Ubuntu 11.04 on my mom's Inspiron 1521 and before I had it on there I had a older version of ubuntu which worked fine and could connect to the Internet, but since my mother isn't that well educated in computers and wants a simple to use UI, Ubuntu came into mind.

Well after installing ubuntu for a hour or two and trying to configure the drivers to allow Internet access with out a USB adapter using the BCM4311 I tried everything such as following the pretty basic tutorials online on installing the drivers with no luck. I check the additional drivers application and it's telling me the drivers are installed properly and are okay. ... Well, why am I not able to find a list of wifi connections yet?

I did the update command and updated every package on the machine. I reinstalled the kernal drivers for the BCM4311. I even installed the installer for the kernal device and nothing seems to be working.

Ubuntu Networking :: 64 Bit Bcm4311 Wireless Random Kernel Panics?
I have this weird issue which only appears when I am using 64 bit Ubuntu. Every now and then my laptop seems to go into a kernel panic (system unresponsive, numlock and scrollock lights flash repetitively) only when I am using the broadcom wireless. I can connect to my wireless router and use the internet and local network, but eventually, kablamo, crash, bang, boom. The only way out of the crash is to power off completely. After repowering, the wireless network is fine until the next crash. There does not seem to be a pattern or time period to cause this crash either. I have purged network manager(which I couldn't get to use my wireless) and am using wicd, which allows me to connect wirelessly.

Here is the details of my system:

Dell inspiron 1520

Fedora :: Broadcom WLAN Wireless Driver Fedora Core 11
Okay I posted about this a while ago, and i got my wired network to work, but now i need my wireless card driver to work. I have been doing research and I found something called ndiswrapper which drivers from windows working in linux. I typed in lspci in the terminal and it gave me my specs of my wireless card which is a:
-Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4306 802.11b/g Wireless LAN Controller (rev 03)

-Some people said there is no original driver for this card, so you need to use ndiswrapper, I was wondering does anybody know what this is, how do i use this, and help me out to get my wireless card going. If you give me instructions, please be really specific as I am really new and still getting the hang of commands.

Fedora Networking :: Network Restart Errors - Bcm4311 On Dell Inspiron 1501
I have installed F11 on my Dell Inspiron 1501. I tried to get the Broadcom 4311 wireless card to work by following the instructions for installing the Broadcom driver from this link: [url].

That resulted in the following errors when I gave the command:

Code:

I removed the broadcom-wl package and installed the autoen package from DangerMouse. After rebooting wireless works but I still get the same errors when I give the command:

Code:

I had to disable encryption on the router to connect, but I guess that's a compromise I'll have to make right now. I will work on that some more after I get these error messages straightened out:

Code:

Note that wireless does seem to be working (though without encryption) despite the error messages. And I got these same error messages with the Broadcom driver but I could not get wireless working.

Debian Hardware :: Intel Centrino Wireless-N100 Not Ok With Squeeze?
I just got a new laptop equipped with some weird (at the present) hardware.

=> Intel Corporation Centrino Wireless-N100
=> Atheros Communication Device 1083

During the squeeze install no network harware was detected. (no wired, no wireless) On the net I read the wireless-N100 should be supported from the kernel 2.6.37 At last I tried Ubuntu 11.04 (LIVE) and the wifi was working. I also tried Fedora 15 (LIVE) and the wifi was also working. (kernel 2.6.38)But I want to stick to Debian (I am using it since Potato) What could I do to get at least the Wireless-N100 working ?

Ubuntu Networking :: Change The Proxy Settings And Put In The IP Address And Enter The Port To 3000?
My college providers shifted to a different setting.. I'm not sure what needs to be done. On windows, under the connections tab you need to change the proxy settings and put in the IP address and enter the port to 3000. Questions:

1. where lies the linux (ubuntu 10.04) variant to execute the operation.

2. What can be the major obligations of such a change?

I am sure its siimple enough, but I can't get my net to work properly. The connection provided to the internet is through wireless routers.

Fedora Networking :: Wireless - BCM8314 - Acer Aspire 3000 With ?
Have a dedicated Fedora 10 laptop so that I can learn everything I need to know. I am using an Acer Aspire 3000 with a fresh copy of Fedora 10 and KDE

The Aspire 3000 has a built in broadcom wireless card, with windows XP you activate the wireless using an LED button on the front of the laptop, but with Fedora I can't seem to do this.

I have found a couple of threads to fix this error on Ubuntu but nothing about fedora. I don't want to change OS as I have just about got this system running like clockwork. I have left the wireless until last as the normal LAN works fine.

Here is the result of my iwconfig:
