Hi all, last night I already succeeded upgrading to 10.10 (Maverick meerkat), on previous version I never face wireless issue after installed additional package (sudo apt-get install b43-fwcutter). But after upgrading I saw the wireless is disabled and the hardware indicator light off. I used Lenovo notebook.

This is my wireless detail info :

... I presume you've got to System - Administrator - Additional Drivers (or whatever its called in meerkat) and reactivated the b43 driver? - remember to plugin into a wired connection first.

Also try deactivating and reactivating using the same screen.

Definitely try the plug it in idea first. This worked for me. I fix my wireless drivers with update manager and an ethernet cable.

Thanks for your reply, now I already update the driver and the wireless indicator is light on and the wireless detail is also identified, but after this command I still find the network is in DISABLE state :

I have the same problem ....
I have Brodcam STA Wireless driver , it was working in 10.04 , I've reinstalled it after upgrading to 10.10 , but my wireless is disabled.
Any suggestions ? my laptop is Dell vostro 1520

I managed to install my broadcom 43225 , but :

get the following message:

*-network DISABLED
and all the other info about the adaptar.
How can i turn it to ENABLE?

Thx

I've gone 1 step forward.

Now i guet :

and so on.

The light of the Wireless device is now on.

But still i can't see any wireless coneccion available.

I have the exact same problems: upgraded Dell Vostro 1520 from 10.04 (wifi worked fine) to 10.10.

I've removed and re-activated the Broadcom STA driver via Additional Drivers after which the driver seems to be fine.

lshw -C network lists:
..
*-network DISABLED
description: Wireless interface
..

If I use ifconfig eth1 up, the DISABLED is not shown anymore, but in the network manager, I still can't use the wireless network. It says 'wire is disabled'

iwconfig seems to list eth1 correctly, however I can't set the essid using iwconfig eth1 essid my_essid
(no errors, but it wasn't set either)


If anyone figures out a solution, let us know!

Many thanks.

I've found a solution. At least for the Dell Vostro 1520...
Our problem is more or less the same as this:
http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1307077&page=2

Upgrading the BIOS to version A08 fixed the problem in my case.

It's still a little bit strange that the wireless driver worked fine with the older BIOS (A02) in ubuntu 10.04. (the problem popped up after upgrading to 10.10)

But in any case: I'm glad my wifi is back! Thanks http://twitter.com/#!/tiainen/status/27134816038 for finding the old thread.

Do not try to upgrade via wireless. If you only have access to wireless (like me), then backup, create a live usb, boot into live environment, and do a fresh install. If doing this worries you...download the new maverick version of your wireless driver onto your usb first.

The wireless is working after upgrade from 10.04 to 10.10 without any problems, even with dell-laptop module. However the iwconfig command says I'm not associated, even though wifi is working fine. I seem to have a bit greater latency than in 10.04.

I have the same problem on Lenovo Ideapad S12 and I found the solution:

1. "lsmod|grep acer_wmi". If there are output, that means the solution perhaps works for you.
2. Append one line "blacklist acer_wmi" into /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf
3. reboot and wish be fine

sorry, I need to do sudo /sbin/iwconfig in 10.10

I had the same problem.
i tried using


sudo rfkill unblock all

and all that i could get was that sometimes my wireless worked but sometimes it was disabled.

I tried to boot ubuntu with a previous version of kernel (2.6.32-25-generic) instead of (2.6.35-25) and my wireless worked just fine.. so i think i will keep running my ubuntu until a new update of the kernel..

I found a solution that worked on my roommate's laptop.

First, uninstall all b43 and bcmwl packages (including the bcmwl-modaliases package).

Reboot.

Then run the following command:


sudo apt-get install bcmwl-kernel-source firmware-b43-lpphy-installer

I have been using Ubuntu 10.10 on a Dell Latitude XT for about six weeks. About three weeks ago, my wireless suddenly stopped working. The NetworkManager Applet tells me that the "wireless is disabled", and the "Enable Wireless" command is greyed-out. The blue WiFi light is constantly turned off. I do not know whether any automatic updates were installed right before the problems started, and I cannot think of any other reason why the wireless should suddenly have been disabled after working out of the box.

Here is the (sanitized) output of various commands providing detailed information on the hardware and the OS:

System-Administration-Additional Drivers shows me that I am using the Broadcom STA wireless driver. I currently do not dare to remove it, because I am not sure how to reinstall it. Would I simply have to reinstall the packages bcmwl-kernel-source and bcmwl-modaliases in the Synaptic Package Manager?

Do you have any idea what the problem might be? I highly appreciate your help.

I cannot believe there is STILL no fix to this. I STILL cannot use 10.10 because of the Broadcom Issue... It works good under Ubuntu 10.04, I have tried everything possible, Still Nothing. (I got a HP DV2000, Broadcom STA 4321 Wireless Driver)

Sometimes... ya know, Sometimes... I wish there was better support...

Funny thing is that wireless initially *did* work with Ubuntu 10.10...

Is there any way for me to find out whether the problem is hardware-related? After all, the wireless card *may* have failed.

Medion MD98300 laptop here, exact same problem. I tried upgrading to 11.04 and it still doesn't work. It does work under 10.04. Please pm/e-mail me if you found a solution.

Is there anyone who tested the new 12.10 release on the Medion MD98300 or other laptops with this broadcom thing? I'm scared that if I try to update I cannot go back anymore without a re-install.
