    Re: Wired ethernet not getting detected

    pytheas22: it gave some errors and did not work.

    I will google around more and update here if i find a solution.
    The wireless card i have is kind of not yet supported. I can see its not listed even in the list of ndiswrapper. I guess i have to wait.

    Code:

    Re: Wired ethernet not getting detected

    Your device really should be supported. The ndiswrapper list is not necessarily up-to-date, so I wouldn't put much stock in it; more importantly, there is a native Linux driver for your card available from Broadcom (which manufactures the device) at http://www.broadcom.com/support/802.11/linux_sta.php. That driver is the one that should have been installed earlier when you ran the command "sudo apt-get install bcmwl-kernel-source", but apparently that version of the driver didn't work for you.

    I think it might be worth a try to install the driver directly from Broadcom's site, instead of using the Ubuntu package that you tried earlier. To install from Broadcom, first go to http://www.broadcom.com/support/802.11/linux_sta.php and download the appropriate driver for your kernel architecture (32 or 64-bit). Save the file to your desktop. Then run these commands to compile and install it:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get remove bcmwl-kernel-source
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install build-essential
    cd ~/Desktop
    mv hybrid-portsrc*gz /tmp
    cd /tmp
    tar -xzvf hybrid-portsrc*gz
    make
    sudo make install
    Then try rebooting, and see if it works. If this also fails, we can try the ndiswrapper approach, which would get your card running using Windows drivers.

    Re: Wired ethernet not getting detected

    pytheas22: I tried the steps you suggested. It `still does not work.

    From the broadcom site they mention loading
    lib80211 or ieee80211_crypt_tkip. The first one loaded without errors, but there is no wireless enabled.

    I tried loading ieee80211_crypt_tkip but was not able to do so as the module does not exist. However if you look at the dmesg (as seen previously), all the while the errors seem to be related to this module.

    BTW one note, after downloading from the broadcom site, I am not able to enable the driver via the "Hardware Drivers" applet. When i used your earlier approaches, atleast over there it was shown as enabled.

    On another note, do you think by any chance using Ubuntu 8.10 or 9.10 would solve this problem ? or if i shift to the 32 bit version ? I am open to downgrading to sort this problem. Earlier I was just fine using 8.10.

    Re: Wired ethernet not getting detected

    A different version of Ubuntu may well solve the problem. It seems that something weird is going on with your wireless stack (the bits of code in your computer that include the wireless device drivers and other modules on which they depend, such as drivers for doing WPA decryption), and the 'wl' driver is "disagreeing" with some of the other modules in the wireless stack. I've seen this type of stuff before and simply rebooting always solves it, but apparently that's not working in your case.

    Thinking about it more, the problem might be related to when you compiled the ethernet driver, because that could potentially have modified some of the modules in the wireless stack (since in your particular case the ethernet driver source code was part of the compat-wireless package, for bizarre reasons) and caused these module "disagreements." I suspect that the wireless would work if you simply ran "sudo apt-get install bcmwl-kernel-source" on a clean system, before compiling the ethernet driver.

    So it might certainly be worth trying this on an earlier version of Ubuntu, or reinstalling 10.04 and seeing if installing the wireless driver before the ethernet works better. I'm pretty sure that the bcmwl-kernel-source package is on the Ubuntu installation CD, so if you enable your CD as a repository using the tool at System>Administration>Software Sources, you should then be able to install the wireless driver even without having an Internet connection available.

    pytheas22:

    Thanks for your suggestions. I will try both options and get back. First with 10.04 and then with 8.10.

    ps : I may take sometime to get back

    Re: Wired ethernet not getting detected

    pytheas22:

    I had to try both options to get it to work !

    First tried to get it working with Ubuntu 10.04 - 64 bit, i did not succeed.

    Here are a few observations :
    a) The bcmwl-kernel-source in the CD has a version that does not support
    broadcom 4313 device. So we will have to download the latest version directly from the broadcom site.

    b) Broadcom site says kernel 2.6.32 is not tested though some users have reported it to work for them. Ubuntu 10.04 comes with kernel 2.6.32, so there is some reason I could not get it to work.

    As per your suggestion, I tried a fresh install of 10.04, and tried installing bcmwl form CD, then removed it, then downloaded and compiled the drivers from broadcom site. It did not work for me. Strangely there were no errors (dmesg) on startup this time unlike what i used to see before. The only problem was there was no indication that wireless loaded / was enabled.

    I was in a hurry to get the wireless working so went to option 2 you mentioned, use an older Version of Ubuntu.
    I had the Ubuntu 8.10 CD and installed 8.10.

    It Works in Ubuntu 8.10 - 32 bit :
    For the record my hardware : Dell 14R (N4010) with broadcom 4313 (equivalent Dell name is Dell 1501) device and it works well with Ubuntu 8.10.

    I first got wired to work and then wireless. I followed the same steps mentioned in the readme in broadcom site (32 bit).


    Follow Build Instructions from here. Then make sure you are in the same folder where "wl.ko" is present.
    sudo modprobe ieee80211_crypt_tkip
    sudo insmod ./wl.ko
    Thank you very much for your help. Maybe in a weeks time i will reinstall 10.04 and give it another try, now that I know it works with 8.10. Now all i have to do is put the last 2 lines in some startup script so that wireless loads everytime i boot.

    http://www.broadcom.com/docs/linux_sta/README.txt
    WHAT'S NEW IN THIS RELEASE
    ----------------------------
    + Supports up to linux kernel 2.6.31. 2.6.32 support is there also but

    not tested (although reports from users suggests it works fine.)

    Re: Wired ethernet not getting detected

    gibu_: thanks for reporting back and glad to hear you were at least able to get it work in Ubuntu 8.10.

    I'm wondering if perhaps the module was simply not loaded when you installed in under Ubuntu 10.04. Usually the system loads it automatically at boot time, but if it's not, try running:
    Code:
    sudo modprobe wl
    and see if you then find information in dmesg about the driver being present.

    If you want to play around with 10.04 and need more help, let me know. But I completely understand if you want to stick with 8.10 since you know it works.

    pytheas22:

    In 10.04, I did not try loading the driver explicitly, I hope to re-try it over the weekend and get back to you.

    To download, compile and install the driver, first go to http://linuxwireless.org/download/compat-wireless-2.6 and download the file named "compat-wireless-2.6.tar.bz2" (you can't download it in the terminal because of anti-hotlinking). Save it to your desktop. Then run these commands:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install build-essential
    cd ~/Desktop
    tar -xjvf compat-wireless-2.6.tar.bz2
    cd compat-wireless*
    scripts/driver-select atl1c
    make
    sudo make install
    Then reboot. Hopefully your ethernet will work automatically after reboot; if not, run:
    Code:
    sudo modprobe atl1c
    to insert the driver. Let me know how it goes.

    We can probably make your wireless work too, if you're interested.

    This didnt help I still have the same problem...
    for sudo Modprobe command :: it does nothing...

    That said, assuming your problem is the same, the Ubuntu installation CD has the build-essential package on it and all dependencies. So you can put your CD in the drive, then go to System>Administration>Software Sources and under the "Ubuntu Software" tab, make sure the box for using your CD or DVD as a repository is checked. Then close the window, agree to update your sources list when prompted, and try running again:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install build-essential
    If this works, you can proceed with compiling the ethernet driver and hopefully this will get you online.

    If you don't have the same hardware as the original poster (or aren't sure which hardware you have), please post the output of these commands so we can try to figure out how to solve your problem:
