Ubuntu Networking :: HP Mini 110 Broadcom Wireless?
Oct 23, 2010
I installed Ubuntu Netbook on my windows xp machine, a HP Mini 110 with a broadcom wireless card, I installed using Wubi. The wireless on the ubuntu side isn't working and I can't plug into a physical line, how do I fix this?
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.
From what I understand, this problem can be solved easily but you have to insert the install disc into /cdrom/, but I'm on an HP Mini 110 netbook and obviously don't have a cdrom drive. Is there some way I could redirect it to my usb or something? It doesn't seem to present the option. Every other release works with my wireless, but this is the only one that works with my sound lol so I'm damned either way. I still use 9.10 sometimes because I love it but I have to hook it up to an ethernet connection and that kind of defeats the purpose of having a netbook
I've been running Karmic since it was officially released on my Dell Studio 17 (specs are in my signature) with a Broadcom wireless half mini wireless card.hen I installed Karmic, it gave me the option to install proprietary drivers for my video card as well as 2 Broadcom drivers, STA and one of the BC43 drivers. I installed all of these, and the only problems I had were with the audio. I spent a few days troubleshooting the audio and finally got PulseAudio set up for my card.
Almost 3 months later, I was making use of my wireless network at home, as I had done plenty of times over the previous 3 months, when I closed the lid (thus putting the computer into sleep mode) and took it to the hospital to stay with my fianc饠after her surgery. When I got to the hospital, I couldn't get their network to show up. Network Manager didn't even recognize the network. We had also brought my fianc饧s laptop (same machine with a slightly less powerful CPU and only 4 GB of RAM). She is running Windows 7, which detected the hospital's network with no problems.After trying to ad-hoc the hospital network with no success, I finally just gave up and played Sudoku and toyed with some graphics stuff in GIMP until we came home. Upon returning home, however, I was shocked that my card didn't even detect our home network.
I have been unsuccessful for the past 3 days in getting Network Manager to identify our wireless network. The wired network connects without issue and I am able to make use of a USB Belkin adapter, which identifies all 7 of the various wireless networks in my neighborhood, including our home network.While I would be able to simply carry my Belkin adapter with me in order to make use of wireless networks, I would really like to solve this problem with my Broadcom adapter. I've gone through the Ubuntu Wireless Network Troubleshooting guide, but I still can't get it to workOutput of lshw -C network:
I am running FC13 on a Compaq Presario 2100 using a Broadcom BCM4306. I was able to get it running thanks to Fedora Unity Project. But It's a very unstable connection. I don't know what settings to adjust or enable or disable. It's not my router, this is the only wireless connection in the house that I have trouble with.
I've read about all of the problems with the HP Mini's wireless and the Broadcom drivers. Running 10.04 LTS. Code: lspci -vnn | grep 14e4 01:00.0 Network controller : Broadcom Corporation BCM4312 802.11b/g [14e4:4315] (rev 01)
I have 2 drivers available to me under restricted hardware: Broadcom B43 wireless driver Broadcom STA wireless driver
I can get the B43 to connect and work, but not for more than a minute or so at a time. I see the following in the kernel log after the wifi adapter is activated: Code: May 25 09:16:18 jon-netbook kernel: [ 121.825109] Fatal DMA error: 0x00000400, 0x00000000, 0x00000000, 0x00000000, 0x00000000, 0x00000000 May 25 09:16:18 jon-netbook kernel: [ 121.825125] b43-phy0: Controller RESET (DMA error) ...

just installed Ubuntu Netbook Remix on my new HP Mini 210 (info). Everything is working fine -- webcam, shortcut keys etc, but I'm having some difficulties connecting to our wireless network. When I click on the network panel item, there are no networks visible. Now, I also have Windows 7 Starter on the netbook (what I'm using right now) and that's able to connect to the network fine.
I want to start off with this: I installed Ubuntu on my HP Mini 1151nr, and it went well. But after installation, the only way I can connect to internet is by directly hooking up to my modem. My wireless is disabled, and I do not think that I have the drivers for it.
The "Additional Drivers" found two Broadcom 802.11b/g drivers, but when I downloaded it came up with errors and didn't work.
I wiped and loaded my mini. ran the ubuntu 10.04.. had to run hardware drivers twice to finally get reference to broadcom and then wireless came on!! Hurray! however (yes, dhcp).. no dns on wireless but on eth0 no problem everything shows up ip, dns.. works fine.. go to wireless it connects, gets ip but in connection information no dns servers listed
I successfully did a dual boot on a HP Mini 1001TU netbook. However, the wireless doesn't connect. Over the internet, someone had a similar problem with his Dell notebook using a Karmic and said that Karmic has a bug that doesn't install the "Broadcom STA wireless Driver" and recommended a prerequisite wired internet connection then the following command line:
sudo apt-get update sudo-get -reinstall install bcmwl-kernel-source Followed by a reboot which solves the problem.
I would like to try this out but the netbook only accepts a USB -router connection but my router doesn't have a USB port.
The wireless on this computer has worked with Ubuntu just yesterday so I know all the drivers work. The trouble is that now the wireless is turned off and the hardware switch has no effect. Is there a way to force enable it through the terminal?
A friend gave me an HP Mini 110 that I can actually use in some situations. I installed Debian 8 with LXDE. It runs well except for the expected lack of driver for the Broadcom 4312 wireless chip. I installed wl using the method shown at [URL] ....
It works fine except that it takes very long to set up WiFi at boot (1 min 30 sec or more every boot--this is a rather frail Atom processor) and the WiFi reception seems poor (65% from an excellent router at 25 feet).
I'm thinking of getting a Panda 300Mbps Wireless N USB Adapter (reportedly using the Ralink RT5372 chipset) and removing the Broadcom driver. I have 2 questions:
1. Could I expect the Panda not to slow my boot time so much? I'm not knowledgeable enough to tell whether there is stable kernel support of this device, although the manufacturer says repeatedly that it works with most Linux distributions.
2. To remove wl is Code: Select allmodprobe -r wl the correct approach?
I have a Samsung N310 with a atheros wireless card. Been having trouble getting it to work. I was thinking about upgrading to a N card anyway so I will be buying one tonight. Does anyone know of a Mini PCI N card that works out of the box with ubuntu 64bit?
I'm a totally rookie at all this. I installed Ubuntu 10.4 Netbook edition in an HP Mini 1116 NR computer--I used an SD card & UNetbootin) and the wireless router is not recognized. I've been pretty much googling and troubleshooting this problem for most of the day. I always get stuck at a dead end. This netbook does not have an ethernet adapter nor a CD-Rom drive, so I have no way of connecting to the internet w/out wireless. I am able to download things from my other laptop to the SD card.
1. When I enter sudo apt-get install build-essential at the terminal, I get "package not found."
2. When I try to install b43-fwcutter or bcmwl-kernel-source, it either won't work because I can't connect to the net or I get a "dkms dependency" issue.
3. So I tried to install the dkms pacakge and got a "gcc dependency" issue. After that, I come up with a dead end.
An alternative option, so I read, is to use ndiswrapper and download the HP wireless broadcom driver, but that driver is a .exe file and I read that ndiswrapper needs a .inf file and I can't seem to find one. Does it matter?
I am not able to connect to a wireless network with the HP mini 110 series. When going to the wireless network menu, no networks shows up. if the solution could be described in a very easy "how-to" or just be made into a patch (if there is pathes on ubuntu) it would be nice.

i am new using linux i install fedora 13 in dell mini 10 and i want to how i find and install the drivers for my laptop. I tried Ubuntu the last time and it has some hardware detection but i dont know how it made in fedora
I just installer Ubuntu 10.04 Netbook Remix on my Compaq Mini 700EL, the ubuntu website says that everything works very well including the wireless. But for some reason the list of connection doesn't appear at all. It just says "device not ready" This is driving me a little nuts. It appears that the Broadcom drivers are installed. I typed lspci on the terminal and it says that the computer loads a Broadcom Corporation BCM4312 802.11b/g (rev 01)
I also downloaded the drivers even though they should be already in it. But I'm not sure.
I recently installed Ubuntu Netbook Remix on my Dell Inspiron Mini 10, and for some reason it isn't detecting any wireless networks. The wireless works perfectly fine when I boot to Windows XP on the netbook, but not when I'm using Ubuntu. I tried troubleshooting using this htmlAt the "check for device recognition" step, the terminal tells me that it's disabled, but as far as I can tell there isn't a physical switch that allows me to turn the wireless on or off, and again, it works perfectly fine when I use XP. What should I do?
I'm new to Fedora, I used to have Ubuntu 10 and found that some software I required would not work properly so I decided to Fedora under recommendation from a friend. I really like it but when I installed Fedora 13 on my Netbook I found it difficult to set up my wireless connection.
I have a Dell Inspiron 1525 laptop using Dell Wireless 1395 WLAN Mini-card (This is what Windows Vista says I have). I have installed Ubuntu as dual boot with existing Windows Vista. Wireless is not working in Ubuntu but working flawlessly in Windows.

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
I've got a Dell Inspiron mini 10 that has the Broadcom 4322 wireless chipset in it. I have NEVER got this thing to work satisfactorily despite the numerous tutorials online about getting this damned card to work. I thought everything would finally be fixed with 10.04 but no luck at all. I've tried the b43 diver (which isn't supposed to support the 4322) with no luck.
I also tried the restricted STA driver, which seems like it will work as it identifies networks and even connects to them! However, the speed is excruciatingly slow and connections drop like flies. This netbook is actually a friends that I convinced to let me put Ubuntu on and have them try it out, but they are most surely not going to be impressed if the wireless never works.
with some troubles, i finally installed the broadcom wireless driver. it says it's installed and activated, the blue light on the laptop is on saying the wireless is activated, but for the life of me i can't figure out how to make it connect. the only network connection icon i have is the wired one. it's not showing the wireless, or available wireless signals or whatever.
this is my first time using wireless with linux (thought i've been using linux for about 4 years now), so maybe there's some stupid little box somewhere i didn't check or something. any ideas?
the laptop is an HP Pavilion dv9000, the distro is Ubuntu Studio 10.4, and the wireless card is a broadcom, and is installed/active according to the hardware drivers window. i've seen some posters having a problem in 10.10 with everything appearing to work, but just... doesn't. haven't seen a solution for that particular problem though
I have a Dell Vostro 1400 with a BCM4311 Broadcom wireless card that I just reinstalled with 11.04 from 10.04. I have the drives installed and it seams to be working when i run the 'Additional Drives', but I can't get the wireless adapter broadcasting. I followed the instructions given in the knowledge base on installing Broadcom Wireless, to see if I could get it running and that is where I saw the difference between the example and my computer when writing the 'sudo lshw -C network' command. In the example it said it was broadcasting under configuration (just like my wired networks below) and in mine it does not (see below for copy past).
I can't find a tickbox in the systemtray to enable the wirless networking that I had before the update to 11.04 (the 'Enable Networking' tickbox is still there and the wired network works fine - that is how I got online to do this post). I have the hardware switch turned on and I have been in the BIOS and made sure that the Wireless is enabled.Anyone who knows what could be wrong? Where could I go from here?Quote:
