    Re: Wireless network Problem

    Ok if you can't install the wl driver and dkms. lets try the b43-fcutter driver.
    The b43-fcutter supports LP-PHY cards. Download the 64 bit version.
    If the gui is greyed out again. cd and sudo it.

    Re: Wireless network Problem

    Haven't read everything you've tried, but as a fellow 4313 sufferer, I recall sometimes you need to delete the alternative drivers. This thread helped me, and my wireless works OK generally. Proprietary drivers definitely work best.

    Hope you manage to sort it!

    Check if your username is associated with the admin group. I think that's why it's greyed out. Also check if dkms is installed already.
    Then dpkg the .deb file.

    Code:
    groups putusernamehere
    Code:
    dkms status -V
    Code:
    sudo dpkg -i thepackagename.deb

    Re: Wireless network Problem

    Hi Nativebound,

    Finally i could install the driver and installed the driver but thats was of 32bit. Does it matter if my driver is 32bit and system is 64bit.

    I xecuted the commands,

    sudo modprobe -r b43 ssb wl

    sudo modprobe wl

    There were wifi networks detected, but could not connect.

    The output of sudo lshw -C network is as follows:


    sudo lshw -C network

    Check and make sure wl is not blacklisted.

    Code:
    gksudo gedit /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf
    wl needs these modules also.

    Code:
    sudo modprobe lib80211
    Code:
    sudo modprobe lib80211_crypt_tkip
    Code:
    sudo modprobe wl
    if nothing changes restart nm

    Code:
    sudo /etc/init.d/network-manager restart
    and post these please.

    Code:
    nm-tools
    Code:
    lshw -C network
