    Re: Error activating driver: 'B43legacy' for BCM4303 on Ubuntu 10.10

    In the boot messages:

    The hardware RF-kill button still turns the radio physically off. Press the button to turn it on.

    You might also show the output of

    rfkill list


    if no output--(it may not be installed):

    sudo apt-get install rfkill

    then repeat the rfkill list

    Re: Error activating driver: 'B43legacy' for BCM4303 on Ubuntu 10.10

    Thanks for the response!

    Code:
    $ rfkill list
    0: phy0: Wireless LAN
        Soft blocked: no
        Hard blocked: yes
    This PCI wireless card doesn't have any kind of physical switch or button. I tried monkeying around in the BIOS settings but didn't have any luck there either. It still comes up with that same line about RF-kill in the boot messages.

    Re: Error activating driver: 'B43legacy' for BCM4303 on Ubuntu 10.10

    Hey i had the samething happen go to Synaptic Package manager and type B43 (b43 driver LPPHY version) and install that.

    Re: Error activating driver: 'B43legacy' for BCM4303 on Ubuntu 10.10

    Hm, I tried that... First uninstalled the b43legacy from the SPM and then I get this error when trying to install the b43-lpphy package:


    Also in the description for the lp-phy package it says it is for the BCM4312 chipset but I have the BCM4303 chipset. Did you get the lp-phy driver working on a 4303 chipset? Thanks for your help.

    Re: Error activating driver: 'B43legacy' for BCM4303 on Ubuntu 10.10

    I have exactly the same problem. Except my laptop is an old Siemens Amilo 1840W. It does have a switch but once you switch it off it cannot be switched on again.
    The output from all of the above commands is the same.
    rfkill list shows "hard blocked"
    I've been up and down the forums but no joy. I have even blacklisted b43 and ssb in modprobe.d
    Anybody willing to solve this?

    thanks

    Re: Error activating driver: 'B43legacy' for BCM4303 on Ubuntu 10.10

    Well I tried ndiswrapper with little success -- I would get an error saying that it could not verify the hardware was present, however, when the driver was loaded it would say the hardware was in fact present. So, could be related to the same problem I had with b43legacy. I tried moving the card to another PCI slot just for the hell of it and retried the whole b43 process again as well as ndiswrapper -- all the same problems.

    Then I found an Airlink101 wifi card in my garage (Ralink RT61 chipset) and tried installing that in place of the WMP11. I started up the computer and didn't have to do anything at all, my network SSID was listed and all I had to do was put in my access code and I was off.

    Unhappy Re: Error activating driver: 'B43legacy' for BCM4303 on Ubuntu 10.10

    Just to let you and perhaps others who have been scratching their heads with b43legacy on amilo laptops.
    My cmos battery was completely finished, every time the laptop was switched off, it required a bios setup for date and time.
    So i removed it and installed a new one.
    Set the bios to defaults, set the date and time, and on the first boot, bingo, wireless lan was up. Logged into the router which was expecting wap2 and the router immediately dropped the connection.
    That was the last i saw of it.
    It works perfectly well under XP.
    So my assumption is that somehow, b43legacy driver and rfkill do not properly report the state of the rfkill button or the card itself to the kernel.
