Ubuntu Networking :: Unable To Download Firmware For Wireless (Also Works For 10.10 And 10.04)

Oct 24, 2010

Problem in Natty Narwhal - 11.04 with the Broadband 43xx Wireless Card: Unable to download firmware for wireless. (Also works for 10.10 and 10.04) From the 'Additional Drivers' section: Quote:

This package contains Broadcom 802.11 Linux STA wireless driver for use with Broadcom's BCM4311-, BCM4312-, BCM4313-, BCM4321-,BCM4322-, BCM43224-, and BCM43225-, BCM43227- and BCM43228-basedhardware. Possible Solutions: Solution 1: System > Administration > Synaptic Package Manager > Search: firmware-b43-lpphy-installer > Click Mark > Click install > Close

Kontza found the solution (post #3), so thank him for it. This solution fixed this problem on my Dell Inspiron 1545 with a Broadcom 4312 card. (Card Tech Specs: 0c:00.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4312 802.11b/g LP-PHY (rev 01)) Solution 2: Another option is here. Update: The Live USB of Natty Narwhal (11.04) automatically detected that I needed the STA driver. After installing it and rebooting, the wireless worked. (No cable was needed for this.) Update 2: After installing with the alternate cd, I needed a cable and after updating, I was able to download the STA driver through the 'Additional Drivers' section.

Ubuntu Networking :: LinuxWiMAX - Firmware Installation - Modem Works Fine But Failing To Install Drivers

May 17, 2011

I switched from windows to Ubuntu 10.10. But I'm not getting along with it as well as I expected I would Specially cause I'm not getting the best out of it due to limited web connectivity. I used to use a usb WiMax modem back in windows (which is also supposed to be supported by linux as my service provider said) for internet. But I'm having a hard time configuring it on my Ubuntu. The modem works fine but I'm failing to install the drivers [url]. I used my cell as a temporary modem to get help from the web.

I downloaded:-
i2400m firmware 1.5.0
WiMAX Tools 1.4.5
WiMAX Network Service 1.5.2

According to the documentation, I'm supposed to install the linux kernel 2.6.35 which Maverick comes with anyway.

Then comes the part to install the firmware. The command I used was

Code:

But unfortunately and annoyingly the result is

Code:

I didn't get it. Am I missing any package or something?

General :: Drivers / Firmware For Wireless Networking?

Dec 5, 2010

I have a Live minimal install Gentoo CD that was made from a downloaded ISO that does not contain the drivers/firmware for my wireless networking card in my laptop. So I unpacked the ISO image and un-squashed the squashfs and added two folders that contained the firmware in the /lib/firmware directory. Then I squashed the file system back the way it was (squashfs), and re-created the ISO again. Then I burned the ISO to an image on a blank CD but when I tried to boot from the new CD, the CD was ignored and the laptop went directly to the hard drive for booting. So the live CD is no longer a bootable CD. I can't even tell if the firmware will work because the CD is not detected at POST. The BIOS is set to boot from a CD before it pages the hard drive. The original CD booted fine before I made the modifications to it. I compared the contents of the original CD to the one I modified and everything is identical. What did I do wrong.

Ubuntu :: Windows Driver Firmware - Error "Wireless Connection (Firmware Missing)"

Jun 4, 2011

after installing Ubuntu Natty Narwhal 11.04, I'm experiencing tons and tons of complications with the wireless Internet connection. I have solved most of them. Now I have only one thing left. When I hit the drop-down menu for wireless connections, it says "Wireless connection (Firmware missing)"

I have installed the driver for my wireless card but what is the firmware? I honestly don't know what it is although it's very basic. I have a Broadcom 43xx as my wireless card (specifically 4306). How do I get the firmware for it? Do I find it in Windows? Also I cannot get b43-fwcutter because I have absolutely to Internet connection on Ubuntu. To post this, I'm using Windows.

Ubuntu Networking :: Wireless - Device Not Ready - Firmware Missing

Jul 23, 2011

I thought I'd give Ubuntu 11.04 (Natty Narwhal??) a try on an old Dell Latitude D600 I had lying around. Install went great. Everything seems to run nice and slick.. except one thing.. the wireless is giving me the old "Device not ready (firmware missing)" So I can only use my lappy on a leash.

It's a pretty common Broadcom NIC... and I've tried running the System / Administration / Additional Drivers and nothing comes up.

It seems to me I need a driver someplace...I don't know where or how to get it installed.

Ubuntu Networking :: Deleted Wireless Card Firmware Upon Installing?

Aug 7, 2011

I recently decided to make use of a computer that had been put away for a while by installing ubuntu on it. I went to do a full install of 11.04 (deleting all files and the other OS, windows) and everything went smooth until I realized that the wifi-card firmware had been deleted along with everything else. I can use an ethernet cable to connect to the internet, but no wi-fi. I tried googling to find the appropriate firmware, but none worked.

I tried to implement the solution given at: [URL] on a Dell Inspiron 1525 laptop, running Ubuntu 11.04. However, I still can't connect to wifi.

one of these "WiFi works in Gnome, not in KDE" threads, but I have been all over google and hundreds of threads across different sites and can't figure this one out.As mentioned, wireless is peachy in Gnome, unfortunately I like KDE and I'm more productive using it (when I have internet).

Ubuntu Networking :: Acer Wireless And Broadcom / "firmware Not Installed Message"?

Jun 29, 2011

I installed Ubuntu 11.04 on an Acer Travelmate 290E computer. The installation went fine and everything was up and running until I wanted to use the wireless.

1. I got the "firmware not installed message" and installed the Broadcom b43 firmware.

2. I receive a new message: " wireless is disabled by hardware switch" (My acer does have a wireless switch that is switched to on.

3. After hours of research I tried to install Acer ACPI but my laptop model is not supported. I assume Ubuntu knows my wireless is there but thinks it is turned off, and the wireless switch can't communicate to Ubuntu properly.

I have already tried rfkill and all that good stuff. Doesn't work for me, Wireless is still hard blocked.

Ubuntu Networking :: Wireless Only Works When Unsecured?

Feb 1, 2010

I am having an issue with a newly installed 9.10 version of Unbuntu. After a bit of fiddling about, I have found that the only way I can connect to my wireless network is if I unsecure the network. Is there any explaination for why it will not work with either WEP or WPA?

Ubuntu Networking :: 10.04 - Broadcom Wireless Never Works

Apr 30, 2010

I've got a Dell Inspiron mini 10 that has the Broadcom 4322 wireless chipset in it. I have NEVER got this thing to work satisfactorily despite the numerous tutorials online about getting this damned card to work. I thought everything would finally be fixed with 10.04 but no luck at all. I've tried the b43 diver (which isn't supposed to support the 4322) with no luck.

I also tried the restricted STA driver, which seems like it will work as it identifies networks and even connects to them! However, the speed is excruciatingly slow and connections drop like flies. This netbook is actually a friends that I convinced to let me put Ubuntu on and have them try it out, but they are most surely not going to be impressed if the wireless never works.

Ubuntu Networking :: Wireless Only Works On Certain Networks

Oct 11, 2010

I have a pretty beat-up laptop, on which the inbuilt wireless doesn't work, and so I now have an ASUS WL-167g, which is acting up!It almost always connects to the required networks without an issue, but then once I'm connected it's REALLY slow on some of them! For example, while I'm at school, it works flawlessly! And at a couple of friends' houses, it works too! however, at home, and at a couple of other places, despite the fact that it connects, its so slow, that google takes like 5 mins to load and searching for anything on google leads it to time out!! This happens whether I'm right next to the router (full signal strength) or 2 floors up (at like 3 bars strength)!

It's getting pretty frustrating to have to swap my lan cable between my desktop and laptop constantly, and also to not be able to use my laptop away from my desk!Does anyone know what might be going on??Also, while i have you guys here! I have another problem -- with the inbuilt card.. Initially, it wouldn't work at all.. but more recently, it has started to function (it connects and works on my home network fine) the only problem is that about 10 mins after I turn the wireless switch on on my laptop, it hangs! (EVERYTIME) (if it's relevant, my laptop is a SONY VAIO VGN-S46GP). Again, any input would be appreciated!!

Ubuntu Networking :: Wired Works Wireless Does Not Work

Jan 10, 2010

I have recently bought a new laptop for this purpose. It is a Toshiba L555D-103. It was pre installed with Windows 7 (64 bit). I have now installed Ubuntu 9.10 (32 bit). It works perfectly when wired. But it does not when I try it wireless. It did work wirelessly with Windows 7, and I have many more both stationary and laptops working through the router, so I do not think the router is the problem.I am guessing that there are no drivers for the wireless to function, but I am not sure. I am guessing that there are no drivers for the Ethernet card ?

Ubuntu Networking :: Wireless Works - Wired Doesn't ?

Jan 31, 2010

I recently got a cable modem from Comcast, and connected a Belkin F5D7230-4 wireless router to it, then connected my computer and an Xbox 360 to the router with ethernet cables.

My computer dual-boots Ubuntu 9.10 and Windows 7. In either operating system, the wireless connection is flawless. In Windows, so is the wired connection. But in Ubuntu, there's a lot of trouble with the wired connection -- specifically, while I can connect to the router and to the Internet, and while I can use ping, dig, traceroute, etc., to verify connections to remote hosts, Web browsing, or anything else that uses http, works only for a few Websites, and then only erratically.

I don't believe it is a DNS problem -- testing with ping, dig, etc., demonstrates that, and I have also tried using alternate nameservers. I also don't believe that it is an issue with IPv6, as I've tried the fixes usually suggested, including editing the grub configuration to disable IPv6 support in the kernel and verifying that IPv6 was inactive. I've also tried using local dns servers such as pdns-recursor. None of these things seemed to help.

Also, perhaps unrelated, but disturbing: my computer has locked up a few times while testing the wired connection, and I had to use a hard reset to restart the computer.

Ubuntu Networking :: Wireless Only Works When Close To Router?

Feb 5, 2010

I have an HP dv2000t laptop running 9.10 with an Intel PRO/Wireless 3945ABG wireless adapter. I have no problems connecting to my wireless network when I'm within about 15 feet of the router. When I move to a different room, my network shows up the list of available ones, but I usually can't connect. When I run Windows, I have no problem connecting from the same distance. I'm using the default network manager.

Ubuntu Networking :: Wireless Not Works With Security Enabled?

Apr 8, 2010

I installed 9.04 clean yesterday to try and once again move from Windows to Linux and I thought I would give it a real try this time to learn the new OS. Well, right off the bat my wireless connection does not work. By default my WPA/WPK security was set on my router. My wireless adapter does connect to the router but there is no internet access. If I remove the WPA/WPK security and leave it open I can connect and I do have internet access but as soon as I re-enable WPA/WPK security I lose internet access. I even tried WEP security and same result. What the heck is going on with this? I am not going to leave my router unsecured but that seems to be the only way this works. I also upgraded this morning to 9.10 and same problem so this is not limited to 9.04.

Ubuntu Networking :: Wireless Works When Booting From CD But Not In WUBI

May 8, 2010

If I boot Ubuntu 10.04 LTS from CD, it prompts me that I need to install drivers for my NIC wireless card and links me to a generic Broadcom driver. After installation of this driver I can see my wireless network. If I then reboot and boot into a Wubi installation I created, my wireless adapter light stays off and I get a message that Wireless networks are disconnected. Do I need to do something to get the same drivers installed under Wubi, or is this a separate issue?

Ubuntu Networking :: Xubuntu/Lubuntu: Wireless Works On One But Not The Others

May 13, 2010

So, I tried reviving my old windows laptop by installing Ubuntu on it, but it turned out to be too heavy for it, so i turned towards Lubuntu and Xubuntu.

Now, for the couple of days I used Ubuntu, until i decided it's moving too slow and I should go for a lighter version, my USB wireless adapter (and the touchpad, but that's a subject for another subforum) worked fine.
When I installed Lubuntu and Xubuntu, it stopped working. I tried using network-manager and wicd to make my adapter scan for wireless networks, but it's like the USB isn't even there. When I pulled it out and stuck it on my main PC (that is running Ubuntu), it was discovered immediately and connected to my router. But I can't do it on either Xubuntu or Lubuntu.

PS: If anyone has a quick hint about why my touchpad is working during the installation of Xubuntu, but not after it's complete and loads the desktop, I'll make a new post in the relevent section. A USB mouse works fine everywhere, but a touchpad isn't moving the pointer.
