Im using natty in lenovo b460. After installation was not able to connect to wifi. Ethernet is working alright. So searched for additional drivers and installed the Broadcom 43xx drivers. After restart the network applet says the wireless is disabled by hardware switch, even after it is switched on/off several times.
I just bought a brand new Lenovo ThinkCentre A70z (All in One). Today I installed Ubuntu 10.4 32bit version, Here are the problems I encountered.1) Ubuntu didn't recognize my Broadcom Wifi Card by default, all though the drivers are there on the DVD, it seems to be blacklisted.my hardware details are :02:00.0 Network controller : Broadcom Corporation Device [14e4:4357] (rev 01)Subsystem: Broadcom Corporation Device [14e4:04da]I managed to activate the drivers.the drivers I am using are :
a) Package : bcmwl-kernel-source Installed Version : 220.127.116.11+bdcom-0ubuntu3 b) Package : bcmwl-modaliases

I applied the latest updates today and when I rebooted, My wireless broadcom driver is not working and the ifconfig does not list it either anymore, was working 8 min ago but is now dead. If I turn off the wireless with a switch and back on, I get a blue light but it remains disabled and greyed out on the network icon. Ubuntu 10.04, latest updates applied daily. I removed the driver and reinstalled it, it did not help at all. Also, my Truecryt gdecrypt stopped working.
Update: it seems the wireless switch on the front of the laptop is now working backwards, in checking the daemon log I found Turning off the wifi so the light goes out:
Oct 2 20:09:18 chuck-laptop NetworkManager: <info> WiFi now enabled by radio killswitch Oct 2 20:09:18 chuck-laptop NetworkManager: <info> (eth1): bringing up device. Oct 2 20:09:18 chuck-laptop NetworkManager: <info> (eth1): supplicant interface state: starting -> ready
Update, I found that if I boot the laptop up with the networking switch off, then, after I'm booted up, turn it on, it works. However if I reboot the laptop with the network switch in the on position I get the above issue with the switch being inverted and not working properly.
I'm running Kubuntu and Windows on the same machine but when I swap over to Kubuntu I can't get the wireless to work. The lshw command returns network disabled but the machine can see that there is a wlan0 connection.
I've been trying to install the broadcom Linux driver from their site but the instructions fall apart at step 3: cd bnx...version/ ( directory just created by tar). I'm guessing this is because I don't have a Live CD (after almost a week of trying to burn a disc I just broke down and got Wubi) but that doesn't change the fact I have no idea what to do now or if this will even work.
If it makes any difference, the wired connection will also occasionally die mysteriously after about 30-60 minutes of use and refuse to re-activate but work fine when I switch over to Windows or just plug it into the router.
I recently installed Ubuntu x64 on my dell studio 1535 using the windows installer (wubi).
All seems to be working fine apart from the built in wireless card, the proprietary driver (found in hardware drivers) installs and activates successfully and works perfectly. Until I shut down or restart the system. On the next boot the wireless card is 'disabled' and no longer works.
The card I have is a Broadcom Corporation BCM4312 802.11b/g
I am going to try a proper install on a second partition rather than using wubi later on but wondered if this was a commonly occuring problem?
The wireless card works as soon as the driver installs, however I am shown a "restart to activate driver" message and after restarting it's dead.
After fixing an issue with sleep mode, my WiFi is automatically disabled on my Ubuntu installation on boot while the switch is on. For some reason, it seems that Ubuntu has an issue communicating with my BIOS. As a fix to this problem: I disabled the C4 sleep state. My Ubuntu installation now boots up fine but the LED on the WiFi indicator glows orange, indicating that it's off; while in Windows it glows blue, indicating that it's on.
I have an emachines D620 laptop running Ubuntu 10.10 with a Broadcom Corporation BCM4312 802.11b/g LP-PHY (rev 01). I havent done anything with it and cant seem to get it to work. I know this because when I had visto on it the card worked, but know it says that its firmware is not enabled and ive tried installing the drivers using the Additional Drivers under Administration. I would like it to be working so I can use my laptop's internet.
i am using broadcom wireless (4312) on my laptop with FC15 and configured it using [URL]. initially it ran great without any problem (for a week). but from yesterday, every 15 minutes or so, my wifi started getting disconnected, showing the wireless login screen . I can reconnect only by rebooting or restarting network manager service.
i have a broadcom BCM4311 802.11b/g WLAN [14e4:4311] (rev 01) wireless adapter on a dell 1501 run by ubuntu 10.10.this particular model and revision is suppose to be absolutely supported by linux and indeed it did work perfectly before the user ran a upgrade from ubuntu 10.10 to 11.04.subsequently i have reinstalled 10.10. as i recall when i installed ubuntu 10.10 the first time i simply ran the System>Admin>Additional Driver installation tool to make the wireless work. i cannot recall if i ran the b43 or the sta driver but i have tried both this time and had no luck.
i am aware that the broadcom adapters are notoriously troublesome and i have tried the two workarounds here URL... as well as their third alternate workaround with no success.
I have a HP Pavilion dv6-2155dx Entertainment Notebook with Broadcom Wireless Lan Driver.
I didn't want to bother anyone with this, but I just could't find a solution. I was happy using Ubuntu 10.04 LTS Desktop Edition, because the wifi was working fine, but I messed everything up dealing with networking in terminal.
So formated and now I have Ubuntu 10.10 Netbook Edition, but that didn't solved my problem at all, because my wifi driver still unfunctional.
Before anything, I tried commands like "dbus restart" and "network restart".
So after reading that I can install by getting ndisgtk and the .inf file, I downloaded the right driver from HP Support's page of my notebook. Extracted the package with Wine (got some error because I wasn't running Win7, of course, but that doesn't matter.).
I just installed 9.10 and I can't detect any wireless networks. Is the card compatible with 9.10? Do I need to install any drivers? If the card isn't compatible with 9.10 is it compatible with later versions of Ubuntu? Marking this as somewhat urgent as I need to get internet access for some coursework soon, and also because my parents will kill me if they find out I've done anything unusual with the laptop because it's new and they think anything non -MS is a virus.
I have had a search around, any cannot find any thing I can make sense of as to how I go about getting the above card to work with Fedora 11. Just done a fresh install (need Linux for some development) but have no wifi. My chipset is this Broadcom BCM4310. There seems to be a whole load of options, and I don't know which works and which don't:
kmod-wl broadcom-wl ndiswrapper
I can sit with an Ethernet cable to install/update as necessary, but really could do with wireless.
I am succesfully installed a Dell wireless card with Broadcom 4328 shipset using ndiswrapper and rpm sources on Fedora 12 18.104.22.168-127.fc12.i686.PAE. Now I am using original Win drivers but the wifi conection is very slow and unstable.
Can't get my WiFi to work on my HP. My WiFi chip is bcm4303 (rev. 2) this is a new thread from http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1400427&page=4 ) So, I reinstalled Ubuntu (fresh install) Activated the Broadcom b43leagacy Wireless driver. When rebooting, the WiFi LED on the On/Off switch blinks.
I installed Ubuntu 10.10 amd64 online today. I was using 10.04 32-bit before, and the network drivers were easy to find and install. Ubuntu did the job for me and they worked flawlessly. It was a relief I didn't need to search around.
Even though 10.10 (64bit) found the drivers for me, both ethernet and wireless, they do not seem to be working alright. I installed both, made a restart. I found that the WiFi light on my laptop stays on, even if the wireless network is turned off using either the key combination (Fn+F2), or manually turning it off.
Issues with the ethernet? I am right now using ethernet but it does not care to detect the connection. Empathy won't connect automatically as a result- says no network connection. But here I am, posting this. Evidently, there is a connection, right?
Issues with the wireless? The WiFi light stays on all the time, and it isn't able to get hang of the connection I have at home. It just won't show any wireless connections available. When I tried to connect by giving it the SSID and the encryption type and password, it didn't work. Just kept asking for the password again and again (I have checked with the router- the password is correct).
ok basically i have a new dell inspiron n5010 with a broadcom 4313 wifi card. it doesnt work with ubuntu studio 10.10. I have the drivers all installed and it works on ethernet with the broadcom STA proprietry driver. if i disable this driver the eth doesnt work. but the driver shows its working (screenshot-1).
There is no pop up or anything in the task bar for detected wifi. i open the network settings and it shows up with a wifi option but i have to go into properties and manually type in what i have "the_den_meribel". which didn't work. (screenshot-2).
i have tried the other driver broadcom-sta-common and that doesnt make it work either. screenshot-3. i did try to install the "lp-pphhy" or whatever it is (seacrh for firmware-b43 in synaptic).
i have a list of results from what i have typed into the terminal: dell inspiron n5010
I just put 10.10 on my D830 and I love it except for a delay when I'm using the internet. When I click on a link while surfing the web it takes about 13 seconds before it responds. After that it works just fine.
My Windows 7 PC and my Macbook Pro don't do that so I'm guessing it has something to do with Ubuntu.
I just installed the 64-bit Kubuntu 11.04 and i've been having some issues getting the wifi to work. At first I went to additional drivers and activated the STA driver and restarted. After restarting when I went into the network manager and any option for wireless was disabled.
It's for a Lenovo x140e laptop with Jessie. Specs online commonly describe the laptop as having BCM43142 but I ran "lspci -knn | grep -iA2 net" and the output says I have BCM43228. Not sure why there is that discrepancy but I am assuming the latter, BCM43228, is what is actually in my computer.
Anyway, I originally installed "broadcom-sta-common", "module-assistant", and "broadcom-sta-source", but that resulted in nothing happening so I think I am going to "apt-get purge" those and start over.
I know about the Debian wiki "wl" page but it only provides instructions up to Wheezy, not Jessie. And I read many previous threads but they often contain different instructions and mixed results, plus there are many moving parts here (kernel, OS, driver, packages) and the instructions seem to be changing over time.
I was away from Ubuntu for a long time - since the breezy badger days. Anyway I'm trying to get back, I tried installing 9.4, it failed miserably; both standard and alternative. 10.4 installed fine, but I'm having trouble with wirless. Long story short network is disabled. No wireless networks show up. B43 driver is installed and the pci wireless is communicating with Kernel. I would copy paste, but I have no access to internet on that computer. Also 'sudo apt=get' is not beneficial when you have no internet. I'm happy to transfer from packages.ubuntu though. Left clicking and disabling /reenabling has left me with device not ready, and a driver warning to get B43 driver. I had that already but I guess I'm going backwards now.
I recently had a problem develop with my slightly more than a year old Lenovo S10 Idea book, that the only way to fix it was to do a hard drive wipe and install. Previously it was running windows, and before I decided to install ubuntu 9.10 from a cd, the wifi was working. Now I cannot get it to work, I've downloaded drivers from the disc. My means of connecting to the internet is with usually the wifi automatically detecting the signal source and then entering passwords as needed etc. How can I get it to do this again?
I was running 9.10 in LiveCD mode and was unable to get online. Went to System>Administration>Hardware Drives and found "Broadcom STA wireless driver". Cool. So I went ahead and installed 9.10 (dual boot with Vista), repeated above steps but found no "Broadcom STA wireless driver" option, in fact no proprietary drivers. So I still cannot connect to the Internet, and I don't know where to go from here. (Note: I installed 9.10 side by side with Vista: good? bad?)
having problems with wireless on my old Asus A2500H laptop, NetworkManager applet keeps the "enable wireless" greyed out and gives a "Wireless is disabled" for each wirelss network card. The wireless cards in this laptop are:
Code: 00:0c.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4303 802.11b Wireless LAN Controller (rev 02) 02:00.0 Ethernet controller: Atheros Communications Inc. AR2413 802.11bg NIC (rev 01) It does look like the network interface come up fine as well: Code: wlan0 IEEE 802.11b ESSID:off/any Mode:Managed Access Point: Not-Associated Tx-Power=off
Of course the easy solution would be to just flick that hardware switch on, however there isn't any hardware button only a indicator light, which is off unfortunately.
Any clues to get wifi up? Also tried another pcmcia card but same problem, card is recognized but still "Wireless is disabled".
