Debian Hardware :: WiFi Driver Broadcom N180211 Not Found
Oct 29, 2014
I am having a problem with the driver, I do lspci | grep -i net and this is my driver: Broadcom Corporation BCM4321 802.11a/b/g/n...I have tried this: URL.. (I have debian squeeze) and it created a eth1 interface.I do ip link set eth1 up and after that I do : iwlist scan and it works, but when for example I try iw dev eth1 scan it doesn't work it says nl80211 not found.And when I try to run hostapd (which is my final goal) it also says nl80211 not found.
I just got my new ubuntu 9.10 os desktop version installed into my lenovo laptop but then my WiFi is not working. Previously I had a broadcom driver which currently is not functioning with the ubuntu 9.10.
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 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.).
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?
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?
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
I have this PC that came with W7 installed..i am removing it to install Debian Squeeze.I already have burned the 8 DVDs plus the Squeeze Kde CD.AFAIK, BCM 4312 is a proprietary driver, not shipped with Squeeze, but present as source in Unstable..I have already downloaded the files also... will the built *.deb be enough to enable my wireless, or to i still have to do it by hand. remove confilicting modules, build the module, insert it, put it in the corresponding filder. does the deb install do all that, or do i still have to do it, "the good 'ol way"?
But let'start from the scratch.The wireless card interface in my laptop is one belonging to the "infamous", not Linux-friendly broadcom family.it is the BCM4312 802.11b/g LP-PHY (PCI-ID 14E4:4315). I downloaded the .iso image file of Wheezy 7.5 from the official repositories, put it on a USB key, and started the installation process with no internet connection. But during the installation, the installer informed me that some firmware was missing, i.e. ucode.fw and ucode15.fw.
Anyway, I went along and finished the installation. Of course, running Wheezy, I could not connect my laptop to my wireless modem just because of this problem, and so I needed a solution to install the right driver(s) but without a connection in my laptop! After long googling, finally I have found the solution [URL] ...., that is using the b43-fwcutter to extract the firmware from the Broadcom's proprietary driver. I simply report here the procedure to be followed, in a clear way:
By means of another PC with an internet connection, download the b43-fwcutter (version 018) from here: URL...Copy this file in the PC where you want the driver to be installed.Extract the b43-fwcutter tarball in a folder (tar xjf b43-fwcutter-018.tar.bz2, if you use the terminal), and then:
cd b43-fwcutter-018 make su (password) make install
Now, after installing b43-fwcutter, download version 5.100.138 of Broadcom's proprietary driver from here: URL...Copy this file in the PC where you want the driver to be installed.Extract this tarball in a folder (the same as previous or another one): tar xjf broadcom-wl-5.100.138.tar.bz2 and finally extract the firmware from it:
su (password) b43-fwcutter -w /lib/firmware broadcom-wl-5.100.138/linux/wl_apsta.o.
The standard place in Wheezy 7.5 where firmware is installed to is /lib/firmware. In another distribution this could be different.
get WIFI working on my Dell D600 with Ubuntu 11.04 freshly installed.

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 installed Debian 8 and it doesnt look like my WiFi card is working. Unfortunately I didn't make a note what is the card manufacturer. How would I update WiFi driver?I previously had Windows 7 but I installed Debian over Windows.
I have broadcom wireless card in my system. I got the driver from broadcom site. I compiled it against my kernel and the module works fine. How could I automatically load this driver at startup. I followed the instruction found in the driver source README file. But its not working. The steps I followed are as follows:
The same steps I followd in 2.6.26 kernel and it worked fine. Now its not working in my new kernel 2.6.32.For manually loading it I have to remove the ssb driver and the download this one. Otherwise it will not work. So I tried adding ssb to /etc/modprobe.d/blacklistle. But that driver loads during startup. So each time I have to manually unload the ssb driver and insert the new one.
If i run nvidia-xconfig, it will say driver not found, and the next time i boot, it will end up in a terminal. why is it so? (by the way i recovered from that using backup of xorg.conf). And i dont think now the nvidia-driver is present.
I've bought a HP Pavilion laptop on which Ubuntu was pre-installed. i had to switch my OS into Debian Wheezy. But now i can't find the wifi driver for my network card. [MEDIATEK Corp. Device 7360].. I tried upgrading kernel to 3.13.6.. But couldn't make my wifi driver work....
As a part of my final project,i am beginner and this is the first one that i have the opportunity to work under linux fedora,my task consist to develop with C a driver of wifi by using the SDIO Wifi card as an interface. This driver will be included in a digital receiver TV.
Ubuntu seems to think my device is disabled. The switch is on and the blue light next to the switch is also on. I read up on this on other threads, but the solution involved using the cd. I had to install from windows using the iso and alcohol 120 because my cddrive is totally dead.
I'm sure you've seen this question before -- I tried searching but I can't find a clear answer. All I need is to get my wifi up and running in Ubuntu 10.04. I'm currently double-booted with XP on a Dell Latitude E5400 laptop. I'm in Windows right now. I can't post my lpsci readout because I can't access the internet from Ubuntu -- no access to wired connection.
I worked on this problem for a long time last night and fixed it somehow by installing a driver program -- it had "cutter" in the name. Today, however, I try to log in and Ubuntu won't connect to an open wifi point. Boot #1 it recognized it but wouldn't connect. Boot #2 it wouldn't recognize it at all (said "wireless is disabled" even though it wasn't. Boot #3 it would recognize the wifi point but wouldn't connect.) I can mantain a constant connection to this wifi in Windows XP and also on my Android phone.
I just want someone to please tell me how to get my wifi working reliably. I'm excited to switch over to Ubuntu, all I need is for the wifi to work. My wifi card is a Broadcom 43xx (4312?). Something like that.
I've been reading up on how to get the Broadcom BCM4312 802.11b/g on my Dell Inspiron 1525 to work with OpenSUSE and I've tried everything, I've even re-installed the OS 3 times as I seemed to keep screwing something up. I've tried doing what it says in this thread Install Broadcom Drivers from Packman I thought I'd installed the write drivers with this code: Code: zypper in broadcom-wl broadcom-wl-kmp-default
Been all over the net looking for some helpful solution to geting the wifi connection working.tried several and no go...ethernet connection is fine. does anyone have a sure fire way to get this running...quite a noob with ubuntu and have managed to find the "additional drivers" with both the B43 and the STA and tried to activate them but didnt help.was into "synapticP manager" and did the search for the B43-fwcutter etc and that didnt help...was into the "terminal" with a command to download updated drivers etc...cant recall the command right now..but that didnt work.when i go into the network connections... for wired I have "auto etho" and under wireless there is nothing. HP Mini 210-1000 Ubuntu 10.10. I have puppy linux on a pen drive and it is able to find and activate both ethernet and wireless odd that ubuntu is having all this grief
just installed it with a duel boot with windows, installed it using a live boot cd that i burned. seems like everything is good except i have no wifi i tried to do an update and possibly get the fix and i get an error when trying to install the updates..looks like i have more issues than i thought.. did i mess up by installing from the live cd?
