I have an HP 2133 Mini-Note [KX869AT] with a Broadcom 4312 wireless card. I've had Ubuntu 10.04 on my machine for a few weeks now and everything was great until my wireless card abruptly stopped working. It doesn't detect any wireless networks,uch less connect to them. I tried reinstalling the proprietary driver, but that hasn't worked.
When I first had partitioned, and formatted appropriately, I installed the newest version of Ubuntu available (Time of posting 10.4), on the partition made with bootcamp, rebooted into Linux with rEFIt Now once I booted into 10.4 I got to the desktop, it started asking me about restricted hardware drivers, so I went into System > Administration > Hardware Drivers, It then searched for the drivers, it found the STA driver, and the B43 driver, I am unable to allow both. So I went on to try ndiswrapper, I downloaded it off another pc, compiled and installed on the iMac. then I got the driver off the Leopard install disk, put that on my flash drive, extracted the files from the installer, put that on the flash drive, then I went back over to the machine in question, copied the file to the desktop, I used the cd command to navigate to the folder, then ran ndiswrapper -i bmcwl6.inf, I made sure that the inf and sys files were in there, so I didn't know what was going on exactly.
So then I went into the software sources, and enabled the cd as a software source, then went into Synaptic, and installed the drivers, it said the install was successful, however when I go back to enable it, will still refuse to activate, I have looked all around for solutions, I have even checked out other threads on this matter. The funny thing seems to be, is that everyone, or almost everyone who has this card on their computer, are upgrading to 10.04, when it worked on a previous version.
after finally installing 11.3, I found that my wireless NIC had stopped working. I've spent about 4 hours trying various online tutorials to get the card working, but I'm still right where I was when I began. The card as reported by lspci:
I have a DEll Mini 9 - it has worked fine even though it has a limited memory. But Husband only uses to have a surf. It now wont connect to net. The Broadcom4312 Wireless Card is not working on Obunto. It has a Dell 802.11b/g Wireless LAN Mini card installed and Obunto Edition Version 8.04 Have phoned Dell and after several calls on Hold for over 15 mins each time and getting nowhere fast i am coming to you guys/girls. I am not a very good comp person, but i do get by and i am trying, so be gentle with me. in simplistic terms.
Im having problems making my wireless card "Broadcom 4312" work on centos 5.4 X64 , i have installed and built the driver from their official site and inserted its module successfully, but whenever i try to avtivate the interface "called eth1" i get the following
Error for wireless request "Set Encode" (8B2A) : SET failed on device eth1 ; Invalid argument. Error for wireless request "Set Encode" (8B2A) : SET failed on device eth1 ; Invalid argument.
After some serious trouble with Plasma, I decided to re-install 9.10. When booting up, I noticed that the wireless indicator light stayed on orange which usually means that the driver is not loaded.
I have a Broadcom 4312 in a HP Pavilion dv6. I checked the repository but no driver shows up. I seem to remember that it used to be there. Or am I mistaken and do I need to install the vendor driver from the Broadcom site?
I've added the output of lspci and dmesg | gre b43
Well I see there is a lot of people which have problems with BCM4312 I read that topics but my problem kind of different..I installed 11.3 few day ago at my job. Everything was just fine...First of all I'm installed firmware
Code: install_bcm43xx_firmware Wireless worked fine...
I'm finding a hard time getting my wireless card to work, my laptop is a Dell Inspiron 1525 and this is all the info: 0b:00.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4312 802.11b/g (rev 01) 0b:00.0 0280: 14e4:4315 (rev 01) [ 8.375610] b43-phy0: Broadcom 4312 WLAN found (core revision 15) [ 8.390374] b43-phy0 ERROR: FOUND UNSUPPORTED PHY (Analog 6, Type 5, Revision 1) [ 8.390436] b43: probe of ssb0:0 failed with error -95
I've already got the b43-fwcutter package and a driver called 'b43' appears in System > Administration > Hardware Drivers but it does not seem to enable. Another, Broadcom STA wireless driver, does enable, but I'm not picking up the wireless signal.
i just got ubuntu yesterday and had to play around with some settings and the fw-cutter tool to get my wireless working and it was...although i upgraded the kernel to 2.6.32-25-eneric...and it stopped working. the simple solution is to use the previous kernelersion...the wireless works there, but thats just not good enough for me ... it recognizes my card is there it just wont connect. originally i was using b43 driver and now it does not show in the system>hardware drivers list only the sta driver does, although when i try to install and activate it i get the error message "sorry, installation of this driver failed.please have a look at the log file for details: /var/log/jockey.log"
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 have installed CentOS 5 just downloaded yesterday on a Dell D620. Everything but the wireless card works. So I found this article: http://wiki.centos.org/HowTos/Laptops/Wireless/Broadcom and followed it step by step and was able to complete all of the tasks. The problem is that obviously it still won't start. It is not even recognized as an adapter but when I run lspci -v it is there sure enough. When I look under the networking GUI it is listed there but it has no MAC assigned to it. Please let me know what command output you need to see and I'll get here asap. I have searched this forum and other sites and nothing so far has worked.
I've been running FC10 with all updates and had downloaded the FC11 DVD. Yesterday I upgraded to FC 11 using the DVD and it appeared that everything went fine. However when I tried to do ayum updateI got the following error. There was a problem importing one of the Python modules required to run yum. The error leading to this problem was:
No module named yum
install a package which provides this module, or verify that the module is installed correctly.
It's possible that the above module doesn't match the current version of Python, which is:
2.6 (r26:66714, Mar 17 2009, 11:44:14) [GCC 4.4.0 20090313 (Red Hat 4.4.0-0.26)]
go to the yum faq at: [URL] I'm not sure what to do next. I also noticed that all my previously configured repositories are lost.
my eth0 suddenly stopped working on FC10. i have been using it the whole time, and now it refuses to even ping the gateway. dhclient is not receiving a dhcp offer and when i put in the information manually, it is not even able to ping the gateway. netstat -rn shows that the destination of the router is going nowhere.
i do not think it is the hardware/software, but rather maybe the provider? i am from central europe but just moved up to great britain and working at a friends place. i can connect the mac powerbook without a problem (it will get an ip with dhcp), but not the linux machine.it is a normal ethernet modem connection here. can it be, that it checks MAC addresses or even the computer names? the powerbook also has a really weired IP address: 77.102.xxxxx
i am not using network manager, but command line tools and have nm uninstalled. does anyone have a clue, what this could be about? i am not a newbie, but this is really puzzling me.....
there was a new kernel update that I installed today. I used some kl mod packages to work my broadcom. For some reason its not working after the kernel. Is there a way I can recompile the driver or so?
my wireless is not working on my lenovo. The problem is when i got to network manager and try to select enable wireless once i select it, it unselect it self after a second. i tried everythink i fond on the net already and also tried with support in irc channel but still nothing.
I have an HP Pavilion notebook with a Broadcom WLANcard that had been working very nicely in Fedora Core 10 until this evening, when I took my notebook to a conference room where there was no internet access. (I tried to connect to wireless networks, but there were none in the area, as I discovered.) am now unable to connect to my local (home) wireless network as the device is now non-existent . Can someone please walk me through the steps to fix this or re-install it (I have tried reinstalling broadcom-wl, but that didn't help). My lspci listing is reproduced below:
Code: 00:00.0 Host bridge: Intel Corporation Mobile 945GM/PM/GMS, 943/940GML and 945GT Express Memory Controller Hub (rev 03)
I have updated FC 11 on my hp 6730b laptop as $ su -c 'yum -y update'after updating I logged to kernel '184.108.40.206-105.2.23.fc11.i686.PAE', but my wireless is notworking any idea how to solve it. I have to solve it offline since I have only wireless internet at my work.
I have my broadcom wireless drivers installed and working on my FC14 setup, when the 220.127.116.11-72(and 74).fc14.i686 came up my wireless doesn't work. Making me revert to using version 18.104.22.168-48.fc14.i686. Am I going to have to install the broadcom everytime the kernel is updated? I don't recall doing that on fc13.
