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.
First of all, trying to install it was a disaster as it tried to format my DVD drive and I was forced to delete my Windows partitions too. That's not why I'm writing, just thought I'd mention that I was already frustrated to begin with
Anyway, I have an HP G62-340US laptop. Everything seems to be running great except that I cannot turn on my wireless. The laptop has a key on the keyboard to power up the wifi and it's permanently off. Not sure if this is an issue with the keyboard driver, but pressing the wifi key does nothing.
I've tried scanning the hardware to determine what wifi device I have, but since it's not powered up, Linux doesn't even see it.
Any ideas which direction I should look?
As a side note, I have used Linux fairly regularly for several years. Mostly Ubuntu, LinuxMint and PinguyOS (all debian-based). So I'm not a complete newbie and am perfectly comfortable with the command line and configuration files.
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 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.
The funny thing is that it works fine in a Fedora installation, which has an older kernel and older drivers, on the same laptop. The fact that the indicator light doesn't come in when the physical switch is turned on suggests it's something to do with that switch.
So I just loaded ubuntu 10.10....and it works great...except for my wirelessi've got a broadcom b43 ...i went into system, administration, download additional drivers and downloaded/authenticated a b43 driver, but my machine (hp dv4405) does not recognize any wireless signals. The wireless light on my computer doesnt turn on (there's a button to turn it on and off) anyways...it's annoying. I guess broadcom recently released some open source drivers, but I'm having trouble sorting through all the info
I'm happily using OpenSuse 11.2/KDE on my laptop equipped with a Broadcom BCM4311 WLAN chip, but today, after a restart, WLAN ceased to work. I mean that Network Connection doesn't show anymore available WLANs. Two things that seem strange to me are that the
I have this problem with my wifi for 2 weeks now.It used to work great and after some updates the Network Manager keeps rejecting my wpa passwords. The wifi card is working (tested with other OS's) and the wifi light on my HP laptop is on. I have installed broadcom drivers.The problem is similar with this one here but changing from default kernel to desktop didn't work in my case. have already read through Getting your Wireless to work and Broadcom instructions
I recently bought Dell Studio 15 laptop, installed OpenSUSE11.2/64 in addition to Win7 64 bit. I am trying to connect it to my wireless network at home and at work, but without much luck.
1)Found out that Dell 1520 WLAN adapter has Broadcom 4353 chipset. 2)saw that b43-fwcutter installed 3)installed broadcom-wl and broadcom-wl-kmp-desktop
After that can see many wireless Access Points at home,selected one via NetworkManager (eth1), configured it (incl. security same as in Win7), it goes from Activating to Active, but I still can not connect - I mean, in the FireFox - "page not found"
similar to this problem http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...nstall-673571/ i cannot seem to get the wireless card to turn on. ive tried NTDISGTK and Ntdiswrapper to no avail. it recognizes that the hardware is there, but will not turn it on. in terminal i have tried to force start it, but from what i remember, it gives me an error about authentication (might be access not authentication) ill get back here when i boot ubuntu and take some screenshots, at the moment i's running XP and hating it.
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 have installed Ubuntu via USB on a Dell Inspiron E1505 and I am unable to turn on the wireless card. I have a dual boot with Windows XP and I am able to turn on the card with keystroke Function/F2 and it works while in Windows. When I reboot in Ubuntu I am not able to use these keystrokes to turn on the card.
I have an HP Compaq 6735s with a Broadcom 802.11 a/b/g draft-n wireless card that I've been running 9.10 (the karmic koala one I think it was called) on for the past 7 or 8 months (been running Ubuntu in general for the last couple years). The card won't turn on--the indicator light is always orange, not blue as it should be. I thought it might be a hardware problem so I took it to a shop, but they tested it several times and said the card was fine and that upgrading my software should solve the problem.
I just upgraded it to the 10.10 distro (usually a friend did my upgrades for me but alas that's no longer an option) but that has not fixed it. I thought to try and re-download the Broadcom drivers on a different computer, then transfer them to my laptop, but when I did that and tried to open the .exe file, a message popped up saying the file was no good. (Can you tell I'm not a computer pro yet? Haha) Any idea how I could fix this or what the problem might be? I'm really frustrated as it's been an issue for the last six months, plus this is my only computer and I need it to function fully for purposes of finding a job, etc. If I could I'd just buy a different computer at this point (really disappointed with HP laptops in general) but sadly that's not an option. I'm to the point where I'd consider running Windows again just to make the damn thing work.
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
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'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
Alright so i have two drivers installed for my network wireless card and the damn thing still dont work. What do i do ? does anyone have any suggestions.is there a special way to turn my network wireless card on? i mean i see it but its just not turning on and scanning
