    HP Mini 1030nr Broadcom Wireless Issues

    I have followed the http://wireless.kernel.org/en/users/Drivers/b43#support
    tutorial to letter for my particular broadcom chipset and I still am not able to get it to work...

    Ubunutu 10.10 netbook remix

    the output of lspci -vnn | grep 14e4

    01:00.0 Network controller [0280]: Broadcom Corporation BCM4312 802.11b/g LP-PHY [[14e4:4315] (rev 01) and the 14e4 is in red

    any help would be greatly appreciated...

    So what doesn't work exactly? Can you see the networks around you?
    Can you post the outputs of the following:
    Code:
    ifconfig
    lsmod | grep b43

    It looks like the interface is down. If there is a switch to turn it on try that, and if there isn't:
    Code:
    sudo ifconfig wlan0 up

    SIOCSIFFLAGS: Operation not possible due to RF-kill

    So I did...

    rfkill list

    0: phy0: Wireless LAN
    Soft blocked: no
    Hard blocked: yes
    1: hp-wifi: Wireless LAN
    Soft blocked: no
    Hard blocked: yes

    so I did...

    sudo rfkill unblock 0
    sudo rfkill unblock 1

    and ifconfig now

    lsmod | grep b43 nothing has changed

    physical switch is on and lit up blue which seems to be a good sign and I can see my network but it still won't hook up wireless... and I have tried to install the propietary driver under the additional drives and it gives me the systemerror: InstallArchives()failed

    Perhaps you'll have better luck with the STA broadcom driver? Get it with installing the bcmwl-kernel-source package, but obviously, remove the b43-fwcutter before that.

    I did try the STA and it gave the same error message. But here is what I did. Fresh install of Maverick 10.10 with the updates being installed along with the OS installation. Full update from update manager. Restart and then used the additional drivers package to install the STA driver and that was successful. Thank you for the response.
