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?
I have a Dell Inspiron E4300 provided to me by my employer. I have installed CentOS 5 without much of a problem. The only issue is the wifi isn't working (doh!). I've had much experience with this kind of thing in the past (FreeBSD/ndiswrapper) with successes. Here are some details:
The device does not appear in dmesg :(I have installed ndiswrapper (dkms-ndiswrapper and ndisgtk from RPMForge) and provided it with the correct Windows XP driver. It has installed the driver and ndisgtk tells me that the hardware is present.
I have a broadcom 4322 and haven't successfully got it working yet. the hard drive failed in this laptop and i took it out. i am using a bootable flash drive with ubuntu on it installed. not the live edition. i am trying to find out if somehow since the hard drive is not in the laptop, if that could have anything to do with runnin off the usb flash drive it boots? i have a wired connection using the 8gb flash drive. since there are drivers for usb wifi devices which i know are different, is it possible that the wifi card is looking somewhere else instead of the usb port?
lsusb (i know i have a flash drive not a wifi usb card but this commands still shows this and ndiswrapper -l doesn't show nothing but blank next line to type on. i have tried alot of stuff
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 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 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.
Just a short note on getting this card to work in Fedora 14 (and presumably Fedora 15) 64bit. First of all, none of the rpm packages which you might choose will work because none of them are for this chipset. First, one goes to the Rosewill website, finds the driver for this card as a compressed tar file. After downloading it and extracting, you will find in the parent directory a Makefile and README_STA_PRI.
The instructions in README_STA_PRI, if followed carefully, will do the job except for one thing: there is a mistake in the os/linux/config.mk file that needs to be fixed. In the $(PLATFORM),PC 2.4 branch, change -imarch=i686 to -march=core2 and more importantly, in the 2.6 branch, add -march=core2 to the EXTRA_CFLAGS and add export CFLAGS (which would otherwise not be done). In the main Makefile, as per the instructions, I set HAS_WPA_SUPPLICANT=y and HAS_NATIVE_WPA_SUPPLICANT_SUPPORT=y so that the Network Manager can control the card.
In the instructions, wps_supplicant is not where they indicate (it is in /usr/sbin/) and the configuration file which I used was in /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf, not the one in the dbus-1/system directory. The wpa_supplicant command was run before the make and before "insmod rt3562.ko", and it generated a bunch of error messages because the card had not be recognized yet. The error messages didn't seem to matter.
The card was already in the machine and when "insmod rt3562.ko" was executed, the card was instantly recognized and the network manager set it up and put it into play without any further fuss or muss.
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.
Aluminum Unibody macbook, the only aluminum macbook to date. It has a Broadcom chip in it and I installed the STA drivers. The first day it seemed to work fine. Then I noticed pages stopped loading. The max throughput I get is like 30KiB/s once in a while. Sometimes I see consistent speeds of 600B/S...this really sucks. Is there a fix or anything?
I was going to make the switch slowly to 10.10 full-time, but the wireless issue is bothering me. The keyboard brightness keys don't work natively, but there's a fix I saw but didn't have time to implement earlier. I like ubuntu but I don't like my wireless not working!
My wireless works perfectly with my university networks. But I have problem connecting to my house router. The first time I installed Ubuntu 10.10, it connected to internet and worked well. After a restart needed by nVidia driver, my house wireless stopped working while my university wireless still works. I have tried reinstalling the driver using System/Administration/Additional Drivers and manually
I'm new to Ubuntu. Today, I took my old Compaq Presario V3010US and gave it life with Ubuntu 10.04. The hard drive was erased and replaced with the Linux OS stuff. Ubuntu recognizes most of the hardware except my Broadcom wireless card. I find this to be a pain because i'm a newbie to linux stuff. Anyway, can anyone help me fix this? I thank you for your time reading this.
I seem to be have issues periodically connecting to wireless networks with WPA. It'll work one minute, and then I switch my macbook back on after a period and it refuses to connect again. It's happened on and off on three different networks now.

I recently installed Suse 11.4 on my Dell Latitude 2110 netbook using the KDE live distribution, and, after that, the Broadcom wireless ceased to work. To enable the wireless connection, I have to press Fn + F6. If I do it now, the wireless led indicator turns on for a couple of seconds, then turns off again. Moreover, the option to enable the wireless connection in the network manager is greyed out

I have had trouble in nearly every linux distrobution cept for backtrack 3(heavily modified ubuntu which has a lot of wireless drivers on it. i know A LOT of people in the past have had trouble with these cards.
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 installed SATA driver recently...Even if i can use wifi but i could'nt find any ath0 interface in ifconfig or iwconfig commands....My wifi is taking place through eth1 interface why it happens.....The reason for asking this in order to use aircrack for wep key it says that the injection process only applicable for Athelon interfaces but mine is eth1...I was just trying aircrack-ng...
Broadcom BCM4306KFB will not connect to internet.how do I download the firmware? I entered the following on the terminal:sudo/usr/sbin/install_bcm43xx_firmware...File does not exist....any ideas?I am running openSuSe 11.1
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...
