    P.S: I did try (many times to no avail

    sudo rmmod bcm43xx
    sudo modprobe bcm43xx
    I think we have the same issue with our Broadcom cards.

    Is yours still doing it? Mine is showing improvement: it always connects though every once in a while it drops and I have to fire up wifi-radar to reconnect...

    Re: How to: Broadcom Wireless cards

    Guys, I am putting this in as many threads about the broadcomm as I can. The new nvidia drivers cause some kind of comflict with the broadcom wireless cards. Not sure what happens, but as soon as I unloaded the nvidia drivers, and went with the default drivers the wireless function all of a sudden is working perfectly, and not droppiing out anymore. Just a heads up! And here is hoping that nvidia can fix this real quick, as you cannot use any 3d functions of the card, which means no Beryl and the sorts.

    I've got the firmware installed and almost working...I can see all the networks in wifi-radar, but I can't get an IP from any of them.

    When it happens my keyboard is frozen - my mouse works - but sometimes the only way to shutdown or reboot is a hard reset.

    Menus respond but don't do anything.

    I'm trying a different kernel.

    This morning I installed the 7 avahi updates which mentioned fixing a crash. I figured this may solve this problem. Instead, network manager will not connect anymore after entering the key passphrase. The first light goes green and then a wireless connection screen pops up. After entering the correct credentials in and accepting network manager just stops.

    Edit: A few reboots later keyring prompted for password and network manager connected successfully. Lets see if things eventually crash again?

    Hi, I have followed this tutorial but no luck, although the network manager shows up at start up, the only option I have is to enable networking (it does not say wireless networking).

    My card is an Asus card with a bcm4306 chip.

    Re: How to: Broadcom Wireless cards

    I have exactly the configuration mentioned in the HOW TO. I followed the steps exactly but when rebooting the the boot hangs and only recovers when I delete the extracted firmware from the kernel. nothing seems to work with broadcom and wireless and linux.

    Re: How to: Broadcom Wireless cards

    Thanks for the help, it took me a couple of days to get this working. I have a Broadcom 4306 and it works most of the time, but sometimes it just drops the connection. I try doing

    modprobe bcm43xx

    but that only works sometimes. A reboot seems to fix it most of the time.
    Anyone know how to fix this?

    do the modrobe bcm43xx command and then reboot. It should work after that. Recheck your essid and wep also. Reset your internet connection (router/modem) too as that seems to have helped a few times. It's just a bit tricky.
