    Re: Dell Latitude D610, Ubuntu 11.10, and BCM4306 No Wireless

    I was going to start a new thread but this is the exact problem I'm having. I've followed these instructions:

    Please do:
    Code:
    sudo mkdir /lib/firmware/b43
    sudo cp Desktop/b43/* /lib/firmware/b43
    sudo modprobe -r b43
    sudo modprobe b43
    Be sure that the firmware made it this time:
    Code:
    ls -al /lib/firmware/b43
    If it went well, you should have wireless and should see many lines like:You don't have to post it; just confirm it's there.
    However I'm still not getting wifi.

    When I run
    Code:
    dmesg | grep b43
    rfkill list all
    I get the following:
    Code:
    0: phy0: Wireless LAN
             Soft blocked: no
             Hard blocked: yes
    I've tried using the fn + F2 key combo to turn on the wifi but that doesn't seem to do anything.

    You might post the the outputs of the following commands

    lspci -nn | grep 0280

    and
    lsmod

    showing the wireless card and the loaded modules, by the way those are little "L's" not ones.

    Also, is the a Dell too?

    Well, we probably will need to end up removing all the b43 module stuff, since b43 in used only for Broadcom devices. The Intel versions are usually a part of the kernel and work without additional effort. We probably should wait for Dr. Chili to return and see if he wants to remove the dell-laptop module just to see the effect. He is the expert and monitors all his old threads, so it will just be a matter of time. If he does not return, we will probably go ahead, but it would be in your best interest to wait a bit.

    Please do:
    Code:
    sudo gedit /etc/modules
    If b43 is in there, remove it. If there are multiple listings, remove all of the b43s. Next do:
    Code:
    sudo modprobe -r dell-laptop
    sudo rfkill unblock all
    Does your wireless work now? If so, we'll blacklist dell-laptop.

    [/b]sudo gedit /etc/modules[/b]

    Contains some commented out lines of code then the only thing that's uncommented is the letters lp

    Ran the other two commands but nothing changed.

    I should have mentioned (as I didn't realize this was an older thread) it's the latest LTS I'm trying this with (12.4.1)

    Please run:

    rfkill list all
    sudo iwlist eth1 scan

    It looks like there is a hardware switch that has your wireless turned off. Can you please find it and switch it on?
