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 chose to change my operating system from Microsoft Xp to Linux and finally chose Fedora to be my new OS.
After Fedora installation I got a problem that I cannot connect to my wireless network I used to using Xp, I think that my wireless card is not installed on Fedora because when I checked in the network configuration I found that the only installed adapter is the Ethernet Realtek for the wired connection.
My OS is Fedora 11.
The CPU Model name is : Intel (R) Core (TM) 2 Duo CPU T8300 @2.40 GHz, so I think that my architecture is x86_64.
My Network controller is : Broadcom Corporation BCM4312 802.11b/g
I'm thinking of installing Fedora 14 on my hp laptop, and need to know if this will support the Broadcom 4322AG wireless card it came with, will only probably use Fedora if the card is already recognized, or an easy gui install. This is the game changer between using fedora or linux mint for me
I have a laptop and a Broadcom 4322AG Wireless adapter in it. I am using Fedora 11 64 bit Live. instructions to install and configure my internet connection in Linux. I dont know how to install drivers in linux though I have Got a 64 bit driver from Broadcom Website. In windows, my internet connection doesnt need any password to access. It get connected to internet when I turn on wireless.
I am a newbie in rpm files, I am testing Fedora 15 (gnome3),nd I liked it, congratulations to Fedora Team, I was using Linux mint9, and I have a certainly experience with .deb files and APT, but .rpm and YUM, I am a little lost...I have a HP Pavilion dv2-1110us laptop with a Broadcom BCM 4322 wireless card; the netwokmannager said "wireless firmware missing"How can I install it?There is in the Fedora repositories?
Okay I posted about this a while ago, and i got my wired network to work, but now i need my wireless card driver to work. I have been doing research and I found something called ndiswrapper which drivers from windows working in linux. I typed in lspci in the terminal and it gave me my specs of my wireless card which is a: -Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4306 802.11b/g Wireless LAN Controller (rev 03)
-Some people said there is no original driver for this card, so you need to use ndiswrapper, I was wondering does anybody know what this is, how do i use this, and help me out to get my wireless card going. If you give me instructions, please be really specific as I am really new and still getting the hang of commands.
I have an HP mini 110 with Fedora 11 install. I installed the broadcom-wl and wl-kmod from yum but still no wireless. First I can't get the broadcom card to turn on using the slide switch on the front of the computer. The device is inactive in the network configuration-devices window. The card is not in the network configuration hardware window. When I try to add it manually, there is no entry for the card in the drop down list. I am new to Fedora but have used linux for years. Unfortunately this is my first attempt at wireless networking.
The posts and google stuff doesn't say much more than "yum install broadcom-wl" Can anyone point me into the right direction? I have a feeling I am missing something very simple, because this computer dual boots Linux Mint and wireless works flawlessly.
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 very new to Linux and need to install a driver for my wireless card. I am trying to install the RT3070 v22.214.171.124 driver from Ralink. I am running Fedora 126.96.36.199-167.fc11.i686.PAE. I have read the thread in the Solutions section about this driver, but unfortunately this is somewhat above my levels of comprehension, and I don't really know where to start.

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 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"?
"Broadcom would like to announce the initial release of a fully-open Linux driver for it's latest generation of 11n chipsets. The driver, while still a work in progress, is released as full source and uses the native mac80211 stack. "
I decided to start of with Debian. I'm having trouble getting my wireless connection to work. I think i need drivers or something, i can't make a wireless connection. And it is a bit difficult for me, as i am new to Linux, and I'm not sure what I'm doing when i am writing these commands.
My wireless card is a Broadcom Corporation BCM43142 802.11b/g/n
I have been using Raspberry PI a little, so i am familiar with the terminal.
I need to install b43 driver for my bcm4315 wifi card. I herd that bcm4315 need a firmware called firmware-b43legacy-installer is needed to do this.So how can i install the driver...I have installed it once and when i am trying to activate it using ubuntu drivers and install it shows error system error:archives failed().
I have a Netgear WG511GE PCMCIA card, and a driver from the original installation disk. I used an ndiswrapper-utils gui called ndisgtk to install the driver. I then do the following to verify an installation:
Unfortunately, when I put the PCMCIA card in, nothing happens. On Windows, a green light flashes even if the card is not connected to any network. At first I thought this might be a hardware issue, so I did #lspci and got:
Lo and behold, when I put a different unbranded Wireless PC Card in it works. I'm no expert in Networks, but to me this suggests a driver problem (i.e. the card is physically detected it just won't work). However, the correct driver was installed with ndisgtk and this was verified with #ndiswrapper -l, hence the confusion.
I'd be grateful if anyone else has had this problem/knows of this problem and is willing to share the solution with me/point me in the right direction. So far, Google has returned a few posts from a few years ago talking about patching kernels and manually building files etc (just before Prism54 became integrated into the Linux kernel).
Im making plans to buy a 15" Dell Inspiron notebook as it's currently the cheapest 15" notebook which is available in my country, and from what I have read, the Dell WiFi card used in the notebook is Broadcom based, and that Broadcom had recently released hybrid drivers for their cards. Now, after browsing through OpenSUSE's HCL [URL] it seems that a patch to the drivers is needed.how do you patch the driver? Do you just go to <extracted driver directory>/src/wl/sys/wl_iw.c and just throw in this whole chunk of text anyway into the file, or is there something more to it?
From my lspci output I get Broadcom 4313 and 0x14e4:0x4727It appears that Broadcom supports this card with their Linux STA driverBroadcom.com - 802.11 Linux STA driver guess on that page mine is 4313 2.4 Ghz 0x14e40x4727 Dell 1501even though my notebook is Toshiba.Then they say that the driver is included with Fedora and Ubuntu but nothing about OpenSuse. Then they go on about compiling the driver myself. I'm pretty sure the modules required for compiling drivers are not available on a fresh install and without Internet connection.Is there an easier way to get the driver? Could someone knowledgeable make some .rpm that I can download on another machine and put on a USB stick? Or do I have to wait until Suse developers get to it?
Or could someone make wl.ko file they are talking about on Broadcome Readme? It looks fairly easy to install the driver, if I knew exactly what to disable/blacklist and what security module to load.Another thing I got from dmesg, not sure if it's of any help, was that for this card pci entry that goes like 07:00.0 there's "support D1 D2", then "#PME supported from D0 D3hot D3cold" then the next line "#PME disabled". I've searched this forum but the only time 4313 was mentioned when someone made a mistake with the model number
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.
After successfully installing Ubuntu Karmic on a friend's MacBook 3,1 I tried to get the wireless working. On the Live CD, the Broadcom STA driver worked fine, but now that I've finished installing, I'm having problems. The driver is installed, but Hardware Drivers says it isn't enabled. I try to activate it, put in my password, and the "Enabling Driver" dialog pops up for a split second, disappears, and the driver doesn't get activated. I've tried Google to no real avail.
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
