I have a Dell Inspiron E1505, which has the Dell Wireless 1505 (Broadcom) card. To run the card, I installed the Broadcom STA wireless driver, which seems to activate the wireless card OK. The problem is that once I installed that driver my onboard Ethernet card was deactivated (and yes, it is enabled in BIOS). I had to remove the wireless driver to get the Ethernet back. Does anyone have ideas? I haven't found this problem listed elsewhere. I am running Ubuntu 9.04 with no other problems.
I patched my wireless driver in order to support packet injection. Using this tutorial:
- Install the Firmware:
- Create new directory:
- 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:
Blacklist the wl driver: (STA driver)
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:
I'm very new to Debian (and Linux in general), and am currently taking a Linux course at college... I'm trying to get Debian running on my MacBook Pro (late 2009 model) and it's been complicated but I've got the operating system installed on it... I'm just having a few problems, the biggest right now of which is my wireless card, which doesn't work. So, I found instructions on the Debian Wiki for getting the driver for it, but it's not compiled already and I have little knowledge of manually installing stuff through Linux...
I just recently recieved a Mini CQ10-525DX with a Broadcom 4313 wlan card. when loading ubuntu i notice it says that it supports 4311 4312, so i looked on the broadcom website and they have a newer update with 4313 coverage. I downloaded it but do not know how to install it.
Everytime I want to active it I got the following: installation of this driver failed. have a look at the log file for details: /var/log/jockey.log I don't know if this is related to Software Sources, I only have Canonical Partners and Independent. I installed Ubuntu 11.04 from an ISO file and used the whole disk
Installed 9.10 side-by-side with Vista, then installed the Broadcom STA wireless driver, rebooted to activate it no luck, no connection, neither wireless nor wired. Did this several times. Getting online in Vista works fine.
Here's the system I'm using:
HP tx2500z laptop Vista Home Premium SP1 AMD Turion X2 Dual-Core Mobile processor RM ATI Radeon HD 3200 graphics card Broadcom 4322AG 802.11a/b/g/draft-n WiFi adapter Realtek RTL 8186C (P) Family PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet NIC (NDIS 6.0)
I am using Linux Mint 8 Helena x64 Edition on Dell Studio 15 laptop which has Dell 1520 Wireless-N Mini Card. It does work when I boot from Live CD of Helena, connect to a wired network and download & install the proprietary drivers when prompted. But on the installed system, I am unable to activate the Broadcom STA driver. I tried completely removing and then reinstalling bcmwl-kernel-source and dkms packages from package manager.When I go to Administration -> Hardware Drivers and click on Activate for Broadcom driver, at first there used to be a window which said Downloading and it used to go away after few seconds and nothing used to happen. Then I installed few updates. At the time of writing, I have installed all the available updates. Now after clicking on Activate, I get this error :
Code: Sorry, installation of this driver failed. Please have a look at the log file for detains: /var/log/jockey.log
sent the following email to Broadcom [URL]. I'll post an update if I receive a response. The current Linux STA 802.11 driver causes my system to crash.I've verified this under Ubuntu 11.04 and Linux Mint 11(an ubuntu derivative). Oddly enough, everything worked find under Ubuntu 10.10. My chipset is the 4321, my CPU is an AMD Phenom II 920, and the motherboard is an ASUS M3A78-EM. I tried the STA driver that ships with Ubuntu as well as compiling the one at [URL], including the patch for kernel versions > 2.6.37.
I am confident that the linux driver is the problem. If I connect my machine to my router using an ethernet cable, everything works fine. Also, the wifi adapter works fine under Windows. The symptoms are that the wifi adapter appears to connect to my network correctly and works fine for short transfers. But when I try a larger transfer, such as a speed test or streaming an mp3, one of three things happens after about 5 to 10 seconds:
1) The screen remains in graphics mode but locks up, including the mouse pointer. No keyboard input has any effect.
2) The screen goes into text mode and repeats the following over and over: [435.610002] ehci_hcd 0000:00:13.2CI-DMA:Out of IOMMU space for 18 bytes.
3) The screen goes into text mode and prints what appear to be CPU register contents. I took a picture of this with my phone if it will help, but obviously the text is kind of hard to make out.
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.

Update 29/04/2011 The new broadcom driver is included in the 2.6.38 kernel that comes with Ubuntu 11.04 Natty Narwhal I suggest everyone to just upgrade to the new version. Update 07/01/11 user some-one the problem with git sources has been solved. At the moment the only commit version that compiles in 10.10 is this one:[URL].. Download the .tar.gz file in your home directory and extract it.
So I just recently migrated from Vista to Linux, I'm running Ubuntu Studio 10.04 on a HP Pavilion DV6700 with a Broadcom BCM 4312 b/g frequencies wifi adapter. I followed one guide telling me to use the hardware drivers program to activate Broadcom STA wireless driver, but whenever i attempt to do so it says "SystemError: InstallArchives() failed". Can anyone help?? (BTW i am not that adept with the Linux operating as of yet)
When I select the wifi icon on the panel, it just shows "No network devices available". I know my network can be found when I search with my iPhone, so I know there are networks to connect to. So, I checked the drivers, and it informs me that the B43 and STA drivers are not activated. So thats not a big deal, I guess, but when I use my ethernet cord, my laptop doesn't recognize/acknowledge (I'm not sure what the right term would be)it. I'm fairly sure I can't activate these drivers without an internet connection because when I do try, a message pops up saying "failed to fetch" with some long link.
My only guess is that it could be a hardware problem, but I really have no idea. I guess the ethernet problem is my only real problem. Because after I establish and internet connection the the rest is easy to fix.I'm sure its obvious, but I'll go ahead say that I'm a novice ubuntu user. I've only been working with it for about a week, but I'm learning alot.
Using ubuntu 10.10 (pinguy OS) i connected an ethernet cable from my girl's macbook pro to her lenovo ideapad s10-3t to transfer some DS9 episodes onto it. new enough to linux to have not been able to figure out how to access the files on the mac, so i disconnected the ethernet, and the wireless hasn't worked since. tried everything i know, and googling for a while (as well as searching again on this forum) to no avail.
Just before linking the 2 computers via ethernet, the wireless worked fine on the ideapad, always had; but not so after the ethernet connection that did nothing other than apparently kill the wireless. an "lshw -C network" command tells me i have a BCM4313 wireless card, and *-network UNCLAIMED. also, if i launch "install additional drivers", i see that the proprietary driver is not active.
How could merely plugging in an ethernet cable that happened to be conncected to a MBP running OSX.6 do that? and will that happen again? i thought linux was supposed to play real nice with other OS's, so why did a simple file transfer kill my wireless connectivity? i have no access to internet via ethernet cable, so i cannot just download the driver i need now. shouldn't it still be in the computer still? somewhere? is there a simple solution to this, or has the wireless driver been wiped out by plugging in the ethernet? is this a bug that should be reported?
I have a wireless router with a 4-port switch built in. The router is a Linksys WRT310N. I have more than 4 devices that I would like to connect through wired connections...so I have an 8 port switch that I connect into one of the 4 ports on the back of the router. Whenever I do this, the wireless functionality stops working! To get wireless back, I just have to unplug the gigabit switch (and unplug/plug in the router) and wireless is back up and running.
It doesn't seem to matter which port I plug the switch into so that isn't the cause of this. Also, I can connect up 4 devices where none of them is a switch (i.e. 4 computers) and wireless still works just fine -- so it doesn't seem to be a problem that there are 4 devices attached. when the switch is connected to my router, the devices behind it work just fine. However, the wireless devices all obtain 169.254.*.* addresses so clearly the clients are failing to obtain an address from the router (the DHCP server).
I recently switched from windows xp to ubuntu and have been very impressed so far. However, I've run into a bit of a problem. My laptop has a switch on the side that enables or disables the wireless card and every now and again its inevitable that someone accidentally switches it off. When I had windows xp all you had to do to re-enable it was to go to the device manager and turn it back on however ubuntu apparently doesn't have a device manager. so I need help. my wireless card info is05:00.0 Network controller: Intel Corporation PRO/Wireless 3945ABG [Golan] Network Connection (rev 02)
I decided to use the STA wireless driver in my Ubuntu 10.04, and my connection actually became faster! Only problem is that it keeps on asking for my wifi password. I didn't have this kind of problem when I was using the b43 wireless driver - it just automatically connects everytime I reboot. how I can make my laptop stop asking for my password everytime I reboot?

I am using an HP dv6 series laptop. The wireless works fine in Ubuntu 9.10 (must install the Broadcom STA wireless driver). When I try to use Kubuntu 9.10 my computer crashes when I try to install the driver. Is there any particular reason why it works in one and not the other?
I have Dell Wireless N-card 1520 on my Dell Studio 15 laptop. I have installed Ubuntu10.04 in it. My network card was not able to detect wireless connections. I have even installed 'Windows Wireless Driver' using ndiswrapper. I have latest driver for card. But when i click install .inf file , nothing happens or gets installed.
I have a desktop and I just installed ubuntu 10.04 as a dual boot with windows 7. My desktop has a wireless ZEW1642S card. I don't have access to a wired internet connection, but I can use the wireless on my windows 7 fine. It seems like there is no driver for it to work on ubuntu, and since I don't have an internet connection while in ubuntu, it seems I can't update it of course because I need internet to update. My wireless network does NOT have a password if that even means anything for this. I have the exe installer for the driver for it but I don't know how I'm supposed to get the INF file or whatever.
I just installed Ubuntu 11.04 on my Dell Mini 10v and for some reason I just realized that my wired network connection is not working for some reason. And not in windows either. But my wireless works in windows. So I have downloaded the latest Broadcom STA wireless drivers for linux and have tried to follow this tutorial to install it. But when I get to:
make -C /lib/modules/<2.6.xx.xx>/build M=`pwd` clean I can't get it to work. It says:
make: Entering directory '/usr/src/linux-header-2.6.38-8-generic' scripts/Makefile.build:44: /usr/src/linux-header-2.6.38-8-generic/pwd/Makefile: No such file or directory make: *** No rule to make target '/usr/src/linux-header-2.6.38-8-generic
My Broadcom STA wireless driver has failed to installed. The error report says that "PLEASE HAVE A LOOK AT THE LOG FILE FOR DETAILS: /var/log/jockey.log WHAT SHOULD BE DONE TO GET THE WIRELESS STA driver functional.? Gotta see it functiioning back!
installing the Broadcom Wireless LAN driver. I am working from an HP Pavillion dv6-2 2150us (if that has any relevance). The problem seems to be with the installation method I have used. I burned the ISO file properly onto a CD, but I did not install through the disk boot-up method. The reason for this is because I couldn't partition my HDD correctly (I am trying to dual boot with the Windows 7 OS already installed). So, I installed Ubuntu via the option from the CD Installer through Windows 7. I am not sure how to go about getting and installing the Broadcom Wireless LAN driver onto Ubuntu.
