    Re: Ubuntu 11.10 no wireless

    Hi pkinztho,

    install the Broadcom-STA driver via additional drivers, blacklist the wrong ones via:

    Code:
    echo "blacklist bcma" | sudo tee -a /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf
    echo "blacklist brcmsmac" | sudo tee -a /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf
    echo "blacklist brcm80211" | sudo tee -a /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf
    and reboot.

    @peartruck:

    Install the missing firmware of the driver:

    Code:
    wget http://media.cdn.ubuntu-de.org/forum/attachments/04/32/2480236-Broadcom_Firmware.tar.gz 
    sudo tar xvf 2480236-Broadcom_Firmware.tar.gz -C /lib/firmware/
    Reboot, too

    Hi peartruck, I am glad it is working and the reason the first commands you tried did not work is because you have a different broadcom card then the one those commands are for.
    Thanks

    Try the module rt2800pci:

    Code:
    sudo modprobe -rfv rt3090sta
    sudo modprobe -v rt2800pci
    Check:

    Code:
    iwconfig
    sudo iwlist scan
    dmesg | grep rt2

    Now the wifi works. What was it that made it work? It's good to know if it happens again. Thanks for the help.

    Edit:
    Sadly, it didn't solve the problem. When I restarted the computer, the wifi wasn't working again. I have uninstalled the network manager and now I only have wicd network manager.
