Hardware :: Getting Mint 10 Julia GNOME To Recognize Broadcom WiFi Card

Nov 29, 2010

Here are the specs for the computer in question:

Distro: Mint 10 Julia Gnome
Dell Inspiron 1100
2.40 ghz Intel Pentium 4
8 kilobytes primary memory cache
512 kilobytes secondary memory cache
20 GB HDD
1 Gig MB RAM (2 512mb sticks)
Linksys Wireless-G Notebook Adapter WPC54G V3
CDRW/DVD Optical Drive

From the title of this post, you can see that I am having some trouble getting the Linksys Wireless-G broadcom card working. I have been doing some research and have heard that getting a broadcom card to work in Linux can be a real pain.

I have verified that Mint 10 recognized PCMCIA so I am good there. I installed Wifi-Radar to see if maybe it would recognize it but it did not.

When I type iwconfig, it does not show any wireless signals available. When I originally set up the partitions for this laptop, I used PartedMagic and was able to quickly set up the network on that with vertually no problem what so ever.

General :: Installing User Account In Mint 10 Julia

Jun 17, 2011

I have recently installed linux mint 10 Julia on my wife's Dell. I installed off CD from linux freedom website with the ftp download. My wife wanted her own account so I went to admin/users and groups and created her account. Or so I thought. When I tried to switch users (with the boot CD in and out of the drive) I got the follwing error:

1) "The panel encountered a problem while loading "OAFIID:GNOME_mintMenu" do you want to delete applet from your configuration?"

2) "The panel encountered a problem while loading "OAFIID:GNOME_IndicatorApplet" Do you want to delete the applet from your configuration?" Both of these had an orange word bubble with an exclamation point in it.

3) "Nautilus could not create the following required folders; :/home?tina?Disktop,/home/tina/.nautilus. Before running Nautilus, please create these folders or set permissions such that Nautilus can create them." This came in a red word bubble with an "x" in it. One last thing. When I installed linux mint 10 on my ancient compac (it has a pent 4 processor and had win 2K on it) all I had to do was plug in a usb wireless card and I was online. My wife's Dell has a wireless card built in and I can't find it in mint 10. How do I set up the wireless. Sorry for the "2 fer" but I'm pressed for time and have to get to work. I'm a copier tech/electrician and I'm good with the hardware but with the software, not so much. I'm sticking with linux no matter what the learning curve because my Mom gave me the compac evo thinking it was useless and I've brought it back to life with linux.

Fedora Hardware :: F13 Does Not Recognize Broadcom BCM57780 Ethernet Card

Sep 18, 2010

I've just installed F13 on Acer Aspire 5551G with has Broadcom BCM57780 ethernet card. And F13 does not recognize this card: in System > Administration > Network Devices tab is empty (but in Hardware tab the card is listed). So, I can't connect to the Internet

So far I've found:
1) Related bug for F11.
2) Related thread for F12.

I've tried all possible solutions mentioned in both the bug and the thread, but nothing could convince my F13 to like the ethernet card.

SUSE / Novell :: Open - 11.1 Does Not Recognize My Broadcom Wireless Card

Feb 12, 2010

I am running openSuse 11.1 64 bit on my hp pavilion dv6458se; and am unable to get my Broadcom wireless card to work.

i tried reading a few forums, but they all start when 'lspci' recognizes the card.

My problem is that 'lspci' does not show any 'Broadcom' card.

I have given below the output of 'lspci' for your reference.

Ubuntu :: Broadcom Wifi Card In 10.04?

Jul 13, 2010

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.

OpenSUSE Wireless :: Broadcom WiFi Card Ceased To Work After Upgrading To 11.4

Apr 5, 2011

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

Ubuntu Networking :: Broadcom 4727 Wireless Card Cannot Connect To WiFi?

Jun 16, 2011

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.

OpenSUSE Wireless :: Broadcom 4328 Wifi Card Missing From System - Lspci

Mar 27, 2011

I recently installed suse 11.4 x64 onto my hp tx2000 tablet. everything has been working great including the wifi card. It's a broadcom 4328 a/b/g/n/bluetooth card and it was using the broadcom-wl driver. Earlier today i plugged in an usb wifi adapter to test whether it worked on suse plug and play. Well after plugging in and using this wireless adapter, my internal wifi card is no longer visible to the system. I've tried lspci and its not displayed. I booted into a different suse install and it wont work there. My bios does not seem to have a disable feature and the killswitch is in the correct position. The bluetooth is working but the wifi is not. In lspci i used to see "hp integrated (wireless+bluetooth)" and "broadcom 4328..." but now only the former.

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).

Fedora Networking :: 14 Can't Connect To SpeedTouch 585 - Either Wireless Broadcom Card Or The Wired Ethernet Card

Dec 4, 2010

Just installed Fedora 14 from the Live CD i686 on my Dell Inspiron 1521. I can't connect to the SpeedTouch 585 on either wireless broadcom card or the wired Ethernet card.

I can connect to it from the same Laptop on the Vista which is on dual boot on the same laptop.

Further confusing is that I ran Fedora 14 and connected to another SpeedTouch today.

Already checked the Channel on the wireless nic and it's on the same one as the SpeedTouch.

Ubuntu Networking :: Intel 5100 WiFi Card - Dell Latitude E6400 - Suddenly WiFi LED On The Computer Stops Blinking

May 4, 2011

I am running (K)Ubuntu Lucid 10.04 64bit on a Dell Latitude E6400, WiFi Card Intel 5100. Never had any problems with networking. Up to about 2 weeks ago. I do realize there have been quite a few posts with this network adaptor, but non really described the problem I have here.

What happens is that suddenly the WiFi LED on the computer stops blinking, the WiFi connection gets disrupted, and the device is not recognized anymore when checking ifconfig. Only cold restarting the machine helps then... it will work for a while (between 1 and 20 minutes) and then crash again.

On Windows 7 the card works perfectly fine. With Ubuntu 11.04 in Live CD mode I have the same effects (connection crashes after a while). Also tried booting an older kernel, no success.

My exact hardware:

I notived the following problems in /var/log/kern.log
