View Full Version : BCM4328 networking at Ubuntu Jaunty Alpha 6

March 17th, 2009, 06:57 AM
Hi everyone,

Tonight I installed the Ubuntu Jaunty Alpha 6. Before that I used Ubuntu Intrepid with ndiswrapper module in BCM 4328 chip.

Surprisingly Jaunty detected the wireless signal without installing ndiswrapper-things with windogs native driver after running this command:

sudo modprobe -r b43 ssb ndiswrapper wl bcm43xx
sudo modprobe wl
sudo /etc/init.d/networking restart
sudo iwlist scan

And, the result of 'lshw -C network' is given by

sfeone@Jaunty:~$ sudo lshw -C network
description: Wireless interface
product: BCM4328 802.11a/b/g/n
vendor: Broadcom Corporation
physical id: 0
bus info: pci@0000:03:00.0
logical name: eth1
version: 03
serial: 00:1a:73:65:88:eb
width: 64 bits
clock: 33MHz
capabilities: pm msi pciexpress bus_master cap_list ethernet physical wireless
configuration: broadcast=yes driver=wl0 driverversion= latency=0 module=wl multicast=yes wireless=IEEE 802.11abgn

I think that module 'wl' is right thing for me. But after providing some login information such as PEAP, user name and user password, the system goes to freeze totally. I can't move even mouse cursor. Helplessly I had to press the power button to restart. But, nothing else got better than before. To do this, I referred the following website: http://backports.ubuntuforums.com/showthread.php?t=959451&.

How can I get rid of this freezing and automate this login process with wireless networking?

Thank you so much for your time in advance.
