Ubuntu :: Cannot Get The Broadcom Wireless Chipset To Work More Than 10 Seconds?

May 3, 2011

I regret updating to 11.04. It broke everything during the update. I cannot get the broadcom wireless chipset to work more than 10 seconds, No matter how much research I do here. I have not been able to work within my GDocs for the last three days. Can I restore back to my 10.10 settings? I have an acer laptop.

Ubuntu Networking :: Broadcom 4318 Chipset Not Supported

Dec 22, 2010

Here is what I have as far as hardware goes:
Compaq Presario V2000
- PROCESSOR: Intel Pentium M 710 -- 1.4 GHz
- RAM 2 GB
- HD 80 GIG
- Duel booting XP Pro with Ultimate Edition 2.8 (I understand this is built from Ubuntu 10.10)
- lspci -vnn | grep 14e4 yields the following:

Code:
03:00.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4318 [AirForce One 54g] 802.11g Wireless LAN Controller (rev 02)

I have followed to the tee this guidance: [URL]
I tried the installing b43 drivers with internet (using ethernet)
I tried installing off the DVD using the no internet option
I even tried installing the STA drivers even though I know the 4318 chipset is not mentioned as a supported chipset.

All of these were loaded/extracted with no errors via terminal following the guidance to the letter. Now here is a problem I have not read that anyone else has run into. (maybe I just missed it). When I go: System > Administration > Additional Drivers the only additional driver that shows up is "Software Modem". I can't for the life of me figure out why the b43 and STA drivers are not showing up to activate. I can install drivers all day long, if I can't activate them, it really does become a moot point.

Networking :: Ubuntu 8.10 With Broadcom Chipset Pcmcia Card

Dec 18, 2010

some time ago I installed 8.10 on my x20 thinkpad. I at the time was trying to get it going on a Netgear WG511 v2 card. I was eventually successful in getting it going with ndiswrapper and all has been happy until...

I decided to give my laptop to an elderly friend for his first computer. He is living in a location where (for a variety of reasons) he is sharing a network connection to the internet with a few people. The protocol there WPA2 TKIP (IIRC) and no matter what the bloody thing won't connect. Here at home I run a different setup so its not a big deal

So, I thought I'd try another card to get it going there. I chose a "Aironet" card (badged a Dell 4800 LT) and tried to install this on 8.10

I expected it would install out of the box, but did not "seem to".

I followed the steps on this page, but still it won't connect to my WiFi at home (which I am using to connect to with this x31 thinkpad)

I am using Network Management Applet 0.70 and this works fine with the Netgear card, even showing all the local networks it finds.

When I plug in the Dell card it blinks the activity light and the status light in seemingly meaningful ways, but nothing seems to connect and I find nothing listed in the Network Applet.

I suspect that the OS is discovering the card as when doing an iwconfig I find two entries that would be that card:

eth1 and wifi0

iwlist scan returns:

which makes me think two interfaces are taking the same hardware...

iwconfig returns idential results for eth1 and wifi0

Ubuntu Networking :: Broadcom Wireless Doesn't Work

May 20, 2010

I'm working on Lucid, in HP Pavilion 9730us laptop.

My wireless broadcom card was working just fine until now as i installed it with the Hardware Devices manager, Today i put a new ALFA AWUS036H usb card to work with aircrack. both cards were working together for a while, but as i started playing around with aircrack the broadcom card of the HP has stopped working.

I made a mistake and followed the aircrack tutorial for R8187 / ieee80211 stacks driver, while i'm using RTL 8187 / mac80211 stack drivers, and blacklisted the RTL8187 , rebooted and then both card didn't work. I un-blacklisted it, and the ALFA is working but the broadcom not!

iwconfig shows me only one wireless card on wlan0 the blue light showing activity in the HP card doesn't go on.

Tried to uninstall and reinstall broadcom drivers, still no change.

Ubuntu Networking :: Wireless Does Not Work (Broadcom BCM4312)

Jul 28, 2010

I've just installed Ubuntu on 2 computers, and I'm new to it. However I'm not new to computers. The problem I'm currently running into on one of the computers is that the wireless will not detect any connections, despite there being many. The computer is a HP Compaq v6203AU using the wireless card Broadcom BCM4312 [14e4:4312]. I've went through dozens of walkthroughs, encountering errors in every single one of them, I've spent 8 hours on this one problem and extremely frustrated. It seem to be a problem with the driver that comes as default, and I'm lost at what to do.

The terminal command "lspci -nn | grep 14e4" returns the following:
03:00.0 Network Controller [0280]: Broadcom Corporation BCM4312 802.11a/b/g [14e4:4312]

ifconfig returns the following:

The computer has no internet access as there is nowhere to connect except through wireless.

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.

OpenSUSE Wireless :: B43 Soon To Work For 802.11n Broadcom Devices?

Dec 7, 2010

For those of you that prefer open-source solutions, the b43 code to drive BCM432X 802.11n devices has just come to life. It can now scan and associate. Tests for throughput will come soon. These revisions to the driver will be in kernel 2.6.38, thus not in openSUSE until the next release after 11.4.

OpenSUSE Wireless :: Get Broadcom BCM4328 To Work Properly On 11.2

Feb 3, 2010

I have been trying to get my Broadcom BCM4328 to work properly on openSUSE 11.2 (kernel 2.6.31.5). Finally, after installing the wl kernel module, I managed to get it working when a run the following commands after a reboot:

sudo /sbin/modprobe -r b43 b44 ssb wl
sudo /sbin/modprobe wl
sudo /sbin/modprobe b44
sudo /etc/init.d/network restart

My question is how can I automate the above commands, i.e. create a startup script to initialise the wireless adapter properly without the need to manually reload the kernel modules?

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

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

Debian Hardware :: Installing Driver For Broadcom Wireless Card Doesn't Work

Aug 29, 2010

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...

Ubuntu Networking :: Wireless Chipset Dead ?

Jun 21, 2010

It looks like my laptop's wireless chipset (Broadcom) has/is dying. It won't work anymore on my Lucid install whereas it was working perfectly. The warrenty is long expired.

lspci brings up nothing about it anymore, it once did.

I booted my laptop into Win7 and it no longer finds it either. The manual slider switch on my HP Pavillion dv6000 is in the on position but the light is yellow.

It will very rarely work on Win7 now.

I can't afford a new laptop just now so it looks like I need an external wireless adaptor. I have (open busses) USB, cardbus/54, and a small firewire port. It does not pcmcia or other busses.

Any particular chipsets to look for or avoid?

Ubuntu Networking :: Broadcom Wireless No Longer Recognizes Wireless Networks?

Jan 11, 2010

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:

Slackware :: Can't Use Wireless In 13.1 - Chipset: Rt2860

May 13, 2010

I can't use my wireless card in slack 13.1 (slack64-current). Looking at the dmesg output I saw that the firmware was missing, so I download it from ralink website.After this I was able to up it with ifconfig. I also was able to see my network with wicd, but after connection I can only transfer very few packets and network becomes unresponsive, no traffic.In slack64 13.0 this same card works fine. I don't even need to install a firmware. how I can make this work in slackware64-current?

Ubuntu Networking :: Can't Connect Wireless / Ralink 3070 Chipset?

Aug 18, 2010

this is my first attempt to get into Linux (10.04 Lucid Lynx), and I'm eager to learn. The problem is however that i can't connect to the internet using my USB wifi dongle (Jensen 25150). I've tried what this link says:I've tried to blacklist rt2800usb, rt2x00lib, rt2x00usb and rt2870sta and to load "/etc/modules/rt3070sta", but no luck in that, so I simply do not know what to do next. Perhaps I haven't blacklisted them the right way? I've typed in the commands and saved Gedit and closed it. Is that the right way?

Hardware :: Find The Chipset For A Wireless Card ?

Mar 23, 2011

How do you find one that runs in USB and how do you find it when it runs from a pci port. i already know that you might be able to find the kind of driver that is required to run the device

Lots of people have accomplished this by using aircrack but some operating systems can't install aircrack (not to mention that the use of some software is illegal depending on where you live) so i want an alternative.

Hardware :: Wireless Chipset - Natively Supported ?

Jun 7, 2011

I am getting ready to buy a wireless N adapter for my computer but I want to make sure its natively supported. I don't want to have to use ndiswrapper or manufacturer supplied drivers. I have been looking on newegg and I think I have narrowed it down to two choices. One has the Atheros AR9285 chipet and the other has the Realtek RTL8188RE chipset. I am fairly certain that the Atheros is natively supported since according to the newegg reviews it is. However the Realtek one is cheaper but I can't seem to find any information on whether or not its supported.

Ubuntu :: Lirc With Jetway ION2 Chipset - IR Receiver Didn't Work

Jan 27, 2011

I just installed 10.10 on a Jetway HBJC600C99-52W machine. It has the NVIDIA ION2 chipset. Through a lot of struggles, I have managed to get most of the computer working well with Linux. The part that I'm still struggling with is the remote control. With Ubuntu out of the box, perhaps about 1/3 of the buttons are recognized. From additional research, it looks like lirc is supposed to address this issue. I tried installing lirc however, after installation the only thing that shows up is /dev/lircd. I was expecting something like /dev/lirc0. I've tried is via

sudo apt-get install lirc
and then I picked the Windows Media Center receiver

I also tried what was in this thread [URL] however, that seems to be on a different jetway model, an NVIDIA ION chipset instead of an ION2 and the driver install for the IR receiver didn't work for me. I was wondering if anyone had success installing lirc and getting all the keys on their remote working.
