Debian Configuration :: Broadcom BCM4328 Cannot Find Wifi Network

Feb 7, 2010

I'm installing Squeeze on on a Dell Latitude D830 laptop with a Broadcom BCM4328 wireless network card, and I'm stuck on getting wireless internet to work. I have the 2.6.32-trunk-686-bigmem kernel. I run KDE and I have knetworkmanager installed to sort the network connections out. Unfortunately, knetworkmanager cannot find any wireless networks for eth2 (the wireless adapter). There is a wireless network, as other equipment can still connect to it.

I've installed the broadcom-sta drivers according to http://wiki.debian.org/wl. When I run iwconfig, I receive the following output: eth2 IEEEE 802.11abgn ESSID:"" Mode:Managed Frequency: 2.412 GHz Access Point: Not-Associated Bit Rate: 14 Mb/s Tx-Power:off Retry min limit: 7 RTS thr:off Fragment thr:off Power ManagementMode: All packages received Link Quality=5/5 Signal level=0 dBm Noise Level=0 dBm Rx invalid nwid:0 Rx invalid crypt:0 Rx invalid frag:0 Tx excessive retries:0 Invalid misc:0 missed beacon:0

Debian Configuration :: Swap USB WiFi For Broadcom HP Mini 110

Aug 21, 2015

A friend gave me an HP Mini 110 that I can actually use in some situations. I installed Debian 8 with LXDE. It runs well except for the expected lack of driver for the Broadcom 4312 wireless chip. I installed wl using the method shown at [URL] ....

It works fine except that it takes very long to set up WiFi at boot (1 min 30 sec or more every boot--this is a rather frail Atom processor) and the WiFi reception seems poor (65% from an excellent router at 25 feet).

I'm thinking of getting a Panda 300Mbps Wireless N USB Adapter (reportedly using the Ralink RT5372 chipset) and removing the Broadcom driver. I have 2 questions:

1. Could I expect the Panda not to slow my boot time so much? I'm not knowledgeable enough to tell whether there is stable kernel support of this device, although the manufacturer says repeatedly that it works with most Linux distributions.

2. To remove wl is Code: Select allmodprobe -r wl the correct approach?

Debian Configuration :: No WiFi On Resume From Suspend Broadcom 43x?

Jan 10, 2011

I have just joined the Debian community, for the past 2 years I have been using Linux Mint (ubuntu), I am now using Linux Mint Debian 64. I have a Lenovo A700 ideacentre with a Broadcom 4313 WiFi card. I manage to get the card working, now I have a new problem. If I suspend the machine the WiFi will not connect on resume. Is there a simple command I can use to getting the connection restarted, or better yet a work around so it will restart on its own?

OpenSUSE Wireless :: Get Broadcom BCM4328 To Work Properly On 11.2

Feb 3, 2010

I have been trying to get my Broadcom BCM4328 to work properly on openSUSE 11.2 (kernel 2.6.31.5). Finally, after installing the wl kernel module, I managed to get it working when a run the following commands after a reboot:

sudo /sbin/modprobe -r b43 b44 ssb wl
sudo /sbin/modprobe wl
sudo /sbin/modprobe b44
sudo /etc/init.d/network restart

My question is how can I automate the above commands, i.e. create a startup script to initialise the wireless adapter properly without the need to manually reload the kernel modules?

General :: Broadcom BCM4328 Wireless Adapter Not Supporting Monitor Mode Using WL And B44?

Feb 8, 2009

A friend of mine has a Dell XPS1530 lappy that has a broadcom bcm4328 wireless adapter. I tried installing kismet on it so I can scan for wireless network in range. I configured it with the source driver as bcm43xx in kismet.conf and complained that the driver didn't support monitor mode. It uses the proprietary 'wl' kernel module to operate but kismet can't use the 'wl' module and it says the same error. I tried unloding the wl and b44 modules and loding the b43 driver but then the adapter stoped working. I searched on the net a bit and found out that kisment doesn't work with the prorpietary drivers for that card.

General :: Lost (wired) Eth0 After Installing Broadcom Bcm4328 Wireless Card / What To Do?

Dec 31, 2009

I have a dell mp1210 xps laptop. I just recently installed installed Ubuntu 9.10 and am very green. With difficulty I managed to install the drivers for the wireless card and now have wireless on the laptop. In order to get the wireless working I had to restart my computer, and once it booted up again the wireless works, but there is no trace of eth0-my wired network device (Broadcom BCM4401-B0) which was working fine before I got the wireless adapter working. Lspci still shows the device as it did when it was functioning, but ifconfig only shows my local loopback and wlan0 (my wireless device). I am not sure how eth0 got deleted, I am wondering if maybe I have to set up some sort of switching between the wired and wireless adapters so they are not both active at the same time. Any suggestions would be really nice, I have been digging through the forums, but I am unsure of what went wrong or what to do about it.

Debian Configuration :: Wheezy - Detect Printer On One WiFi Network But Not Other

Sep 21, 2015

I use a 'wifi hotspot' provided by my mobile (android) phone for internet/email and to connect to my wifi capable HP p1102w printer. Installation and use of the printer worked perfectly until I bought a new phone, again android with 'wifi hotspot' capability. The wifi connection on my new phone works fine for internet and email but it totally fails to detect my printer.

I have tried to detect and connect to the printer using system-config-printer and using the HP utility hp-setup. Both fail to detect the printer on the 'new' wifi network.

The old network connection which detects the printer as expected gives the following output:

Code: Select allpat@debian:~$ ifconfig
eth0      Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr 6c:3b:e5:91:ec:0c 
          UP BROADCAST MULTICAST  MTU:1500  Metric:1

          collisions:0 txqueuelen:1000
          RX bytes:0 (0.0 B)  TX bytes:0 (0.0 B)

[Code] ....

The new (problematic) network connection which fails to detect the printer gives the following output:

Code: Select allpat@debian:~$ ifconfig

Debian :: No WiFi After Sleep And Boot - Network Manager Cannot Find SSID

Apr 4, 2016

I'm running Debian testing. I am running the iwlwifi driver and I have an Intel Centrino Wireless-N 1000 card. I have a fresh install of iwlwifi and network-manager. After sleep or after being shutdown, network manager cannot find my network's SSID. I have to wait ~5 minutes for it list my SSID. I dual boot this laptop with Windows 7, and on Windows, I connect to the internet instantly after boot. I did not have this issue before, the only thing I have changed was installing blueman and the necessary components. After I installed and uninstalled these bluetooth components, I have been getting these problems. Here are some outputs:

iwconfig:
Code: Select alleth0      no wireless extensions.

Debian Configuration :: WiFi Connection Stuck At (Setting Network Address)

Oct 9, 2015

I have Debian 8.2 with KDE 4.14 and everything runs perfect, except for the internet connection. This problem happens randomly when I turn on my machine. Sometimes when the desktop loads, the connection is already settled.

But sometimes when the desktop loads, the wifi icon is still loading and keeps stuck at "setting network address". Since this problem happens randomly I really don't know what is happening here. My wifi chip is this:

Code: Select all01:00.0 Network controller: Intel Corporation Centrino Wireless-N 130 (rev 34)

This is the problem:

I installed Debian with non-free firmware because of this chip.

Ubuntu Networking :: Broadcom Network Card - WiFi Light Stays On All The Time ?

Dec 13, 2010

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).

Debian Configuration :: No Wireless In Squeeze With Broadcom Card

Oct 30, 2010

I just installed fresh Squeeze to my new hpmini 210-1100 netbook. No wireless. I have checked and I have Network Manager installed already.

I also compiled and installed Broadcom driver from here[url]

I followed their instructions and compiled the driver. I did get a wl.ko driver and installed it insmod wl.ko after modprobe lib80211

I noticed after rebooting neither wl.ko nor lib80211 showed when i did lsmod. So I did modprobe and insmod again. Still no wireless. Here are output of some commands that I thought would be relevant.

lspci:

I see only 2 computer icon in the system tray but not the parallel bars. When I went to System>Administration>Network, I was not able to add my wireless network name. The Add button was grayed out.

General :: Windows - Find Out Which Authentication Protocols A WiFinetwork Uses?

Aug 16, 2011

I want to connect my Debian Squeeze machine to my school wireless network with wpa_supplicant.

I think the network uses 802.1X authentication, because when the other students connects to the network for the first time in Windows they enter their username and password then the connection is established. I have asked the the IT staff but they do not known what 802.1X, PEAP EAP etc. is and just say "Enter the login details in the box!".

If I bring a Windows 7 machine to school and successful connects to the network, is it then possible for me to extract the information [and extract a certificate if used on the network] from Windows somehow so i can setup the wpa_supplicant.conf correctly on Debian?

The information I want to extract is which protocols are used, like PEAP,MSCHAP etc.

Debian Configuration :: How To Connect Wifi From CLI

I did a netinstall earlier today (latest version, amd64) on my Dell XPS laptop and ended up with a minimal installation because I couldn't connect to the internet. Now I'm trying to get online without a desktop environment.

I have an Intel Centrino 1030, so I downloaded and installed the firmware [URL].... with a usb, then rebooted. My searches have turned up a lot of instructions involving a utility called iwconfig and wpasuppliant, but these are apparently not installed. I don't really know much about it, but my /etc/network/interfaces file looks rather empty:

Code: Select all# The loopback interface

Shouldn't there be something like wlan0 there? The network card does show up with lspci

Debian Installation :: 7.4 - WiFi Configuration Fails

Apr 8, 2014

I've been installing multiple versions of ubunutu over years and now I better understand why I faced always problems with wifi configuration on these different baselines : Debian root of course.

Now on Debian 7.4 :
The Broadcom BCM4313 driver is not loaded by default (not free product) for my wifi card. This is stated thru the UNCLAIMED declaration

Code: Select all 
sudo lshw -c network
 *-network UNCLAIMED
       description: Network controller
       product: BCM4313 802.11b/g/n Wireless LAN Controller
       vendor: Broadcom Corporation
       physical id: 0

[Code] ...

Unclaimed means : no driver found (no kernel association)

So I installed the driver located in the non-free backports by adding this target into the repository

Code: Select alldeb http://http.debian.net/debian/ wheezy main contrib non-free

and install :

Code: Select allsudo apt-get update && apt-get install firmware-brcm80211
sudo modprobe brcm80211

Check seems OK :

Code: Select allsudo lshw -c network

  *-network
       description: Wireless interface
       product: BCM4313 802.11b/g/n Wireless LAN Controller
       vendor: Broadcom Corporation
       physical id: 0

[Code] ....

I can't connect with wlan0, it doesn't work. I found information here regarding WPA2/PSK wifi configuration on debian : [URL] ....

so I added this setup to my interfaces file an got :

Code: Select allauto lo
iface lo inet loopback

allow-hotplug wlan0
iface wlan0 inet dhcp
 wpa-ssid Hznteam-Datacenter
 # hexadecimal psk is encoded from a plaintext passphrase
 wpa-psk 12345678901234567890123456

It's worth ! no more wifi network are detected and ifconfig gives no ip address allocated :

Code: Select allwlan0     Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr 78:e4:00:4e:49:a3 
          UP BROADCAST MULTICAST  MTU:1500  Metric:1
