View Full Version : [ubuntu] No wireless on Dell Inspiron 1545 in Ubuntu 11.04

May 2nd, 2011, 12:08 AM
I am unable to connect to my wireless internet on my Dell Inspiron 1545 since I updated from ubuntu 10.04 to 11.04.

The wireless driver for my computer is BCM4312.
No wireless networks are showing up and I have attempted the following:
- Turning on the wireless hardware switch (Fn+F2)
- Removing bcmwl-kernel-source which comes back as E: Unable to locate package bcmwl-sta-common
- Installing b43-fwcutter in the terminal which says
E: Unable to locate package bcmwl
E: Unable to locate package bcmwl-sta-kernel-source
- When I search for it in synaptic package manager it shows that it is already downloaded
- I have searched for additional drivers which comes back empty and says "no proprietary drivers are in use on this system"

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Well, assuming that you have a Broadcom 4312 wireless, could you post the results of the following terminal commands:


lsmod

cat /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.confNOTE: that 2nd command might not be the correct thing under Ubuntu 11.04 (I'm still quite attached to Lucid Lynx 10.04.2 LTS, so the 'new' syntax/file structure might be different than what I'm currently using).

Well, it looks like you've got the "ssb" module loaded, but I believe that it usually accompanies the "b43" module. Let's try the following terminal command (and post the results or any error messages that you get):


sudo modprobe b43Make sure your ethernet cable is unplugged and wait a few minutes and see if you see any wireless connections. You might need to right click on the Network Manager icon near the clock and "Enable Networking" and "Enable Wireless" with the checkmarks first.

If you still can't get wireless, you might try System > Hardware Drivers and see if you can "Activate" either the "b43" or "STA" Broadcom driver. If it gives you error message(s), could you post those here too? From what I remember, the older versions of Ubuntu gave me a choice between the "b43" and the "STA" drivers (and both worked fine for my "4328" broadcom), and I seem to remember it being a mutually-exclusive "either or" thing under Hardware Drivers but that was a long time ago.

If still no wireless, can you post the output of the following terminal commands:


lsmod | grep b43
dmesg | grep b43
dmesg | grep wl
dmesg | grep ssb
ifconfig
I suspect that you might be having the "b43 firmware" problem, but you definitely need more than just that "ssb" module loaded for wireless.

Your /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf "blacklist" file looks mostly identical to mine (I have a working Broadcom "4328" using the Broadcom "STA" driver that has the same lines that I highlighted in red above), so I don't see anything preventing your wireless modules from loading there.

This recent pinned thread is nearing 20 pages now, but looking at the first post, "Sef" also has a Broadcom 4312 and posted 2 fixes (your 4312 should also work with the functionally-very-similar Broadcom 4311 setup as I recall):

No wireless networks are showing up and I have attempted the following:
- Turning on the wireless hardware switch (Fn+F2)
- Removing bcmwl-kernel-source which comes back as E: Unable to locate package bcmwl-sta-common
- Installing b43-fwcutter in the terminal which says
E: Unable to locate package bcmwl
E: Unable to locate package bcmwl-sta-kernel-source
- When I search for it in synaptic package manager it shows that it is already downloaded
- I have searched for additional drivers which comes back empty and says "no proprietary drivers are in use on this system"

Just as a thought- did you have a working cabled ethernet connection when you tried to make those changes with the Synaptic Package manager? It looks like your Ubuntu couldn't see the repositories for some reason.

If Synaptic (SPM) tells you that a package is already installed, there should be a "Mark for reinstallation" option that you might want to force. SPM is usually quite good about notifying you about conflicts and needed package dependencies (but perhaps this isn't the case under Ubuntu 11.xx).

EDIT: If you have internet access from another computer (or from cabled ethernet), you could download the Broadcom Linux STA driver directly from Broadcom's website:

http://www.broadcom.com/support/802.11/linux_sta.php

There are very specific instructions in the README.txt file, and there are different drivers for 32-bit and 64-bit. You might not want to try compiling your own wireless modules just yet though. You still might want to grab the appropriate STA driver from there as a Plan D or E sometime down the road, though.

It looks like you've got both the "b43" stuff and the "STA" driver loaded, Edwin. With a Broadcom 4311, I don't believe that you will gain anything by using the 802.11n-capable "STA" driver. These modules are probably conflicting Edwin, so let's try getting rid of the "STA" module.

Can you post the results of the following terminal commands, Edwin?

lsmod | grep wl

sudo rmmod wl

ifconfig

iwconfig

You might need to disconnect your ethernet cable first and right click on the Network Manager to "Enable Networking" and "Enable Wireless" with the checkmarks then testing to see if your wireless works any better, and try the "ifconfig" and "iwconfig" commands again.

+1 I believe Edwin has both installed.
You might have other blacklists that are created by the STA install too. Copy and Run this in terminal and paste results

This happened once you upgraded to 11.04? I have my wireless working on 10.10, and I'm currently (as in right now haha) running 11.04 from a flash drive. Needless to say, I have no net connection, and the driver I used to get it running on 10.10 doesn't appear in synaptic.

If you get it working, please let us know. For now, I'm definitely not going to upgrade. Thanks for posting this unintentional warning :D

Hi, folks. Thanks for all the advice you've given on here, it's helped loads thus far. I'm a total newbie to Linux, so you may have to explain everything in completely basic terms for me. I'm completely stuck with getting the wi-fi working at the mo, so wondered if any of you guys could help, please? My setup:

- Dell Inspiron 1545 with Dell Wireless 1397 WLAN Mini-Card
- Dual-boot Windows 7 (well-used) and Ubuntu 11.04 (clean install, no additions)
- BT Homehub wireless router

I've followed instructions I've found, hooked up the network cable to the LAN port, then ran the Synaptic Package Manager, searched for "firmware-b43-lpphy-installer", marked & installed, activated the STA driver (whatever that is) then restarted, and the wi-fi network was automatically detected. I've entered the security password for the network and saved it fine, disconnected the network cable and restarted, and I can see the network there to connect to it, but Ubuntu won't connect. It tries to for about a minute or two, then just stops trying with no error message to speak of.

Does anyone have any suggestions what the problem might be? And if so, could you possibly do me the honour of explaining a solution in step-by-step layman's terms for me, please? Like I said, I've only just popped my Linx cherry :P , and know little to nothing about Linux at all, but I am attempting to learn as much as possible ASAP.

Thanks for your advice.

lo no wireless extensions.

eth0 no wireless extensions.

eth1 IEEE 802.11 Access Point: Not-Associated
Link Quality:5 Signal level:0 Noise level:199
Rx invalid nwid:0 invalid crypt:0 invalid misc:0


Error message stating "All" was an invalid parameter, or something along those lines.

Does that help make it all clearer?

rfkill list all


Not a large A...try again just copy and paste the command in the terminal (no Typo)

You have the STA (wl) driver installed but as you know it is not working correctly.

wireless info for lshw command
configuration: broadcast=yes driver=wl0 driverversion=5.100.82.38 latency=0 multicast=yes wireless=IEEE

lsmod info on driver
wl 2642531 0


I've followed instructions I've found, hooked up the network cable to the LAN port, then ran the Synaptic Package Manager, searched for "firmware-b43-lpphy-installer", marked & installed , activated the STA driver (whatever that is) then restarted

installed "firmware-b43-lpphy-installer" that's good you need that firmware...
activated the STA driver That's not good with that firmware De-activate that bugger

Install b43-fwcutter that can be done in a few ways..Synaptic search bcm you will see it.

or



sudo apt-get install b43-fwcutter

Hi, open synaptic and make sure you have firmwareb43-lpphy-installer and b43fwcutter and if you have sta driver and bcmwl-kerrnel-source uninstall them, then restart your system with out the wired internet plugged in.

These are the only to you want to have installed firmwareb43-lpphy-installer and b43fwcutter.
