    Re: New brcm80211 driver guide for Broadcom wireless cards

    I am using the new firmware with 2.6.39 kernel and I get no data in monitor mode.
    On my ubuntu 11.04 machine it will show no APs if the device interface is down, also crashes when I bring up the interface up

    Re: New brcm80211 driver guide for Broadcom wireless cards

    I've been using this driver for about 6 weeks. Initially I was getting total system freezes frequently, but with latest firmware this is down to about once / day.

    Is there any logging I can set to help debug this and report it back?

    Thanks

    To my understanding this is not an error.
    This is the comparison phrase.
    Ignore it as long as the .ko file is generated.

    When running Aircrack-ng(1.1),Monitor mode can be activated an Injection is Working.

    BUT,the netcard can only recognise the packets(or DATA) send or received by itself.
    While other PCs are working via my wireless router,the netcard does find the router's ESSID and can receive the bacons,but data is always stay at 0.Also,the aircrack cannot find other wifi clients except itself.


    SO,I just wordering whether it is a driver bug?
    I think we have a similar issue:
    My airodump-ng shows no networks at all.
    If I create one using airbase-ng then it shows.

    I have Broadcom BCM4313 [14e4:4727] (rev 01).

    It does not work, do not do so.

    Dear Sirs,
    I met a problem when using a BCM4313.
    And looking for a solution. I several times caught this thread.
    But after several attempts to adjust the efficiency of office equipment, I came across a kernel panic.
    And so a solution was found with the release of kernel 3.0.0
    Further, as I did.

    Re: New brcm80211 driver guide for Broadcom wireless cards

    Hi all, I just got a new acer netbook today and was trying to figure out how to get the my bcm 4313 card to work better. I read the whole thread, and still haven't been able to find out how to add the kernel version into the makefile.

    I typed uname and found my linux kernel is 2.6.35.8

    What do I do from here? This is a whole new language for me?

    Same problem here.
    I can put my bcm4313 in monitor mode on Natty but I'm also getting no data.
    Has anyone found a solution?
