    Re: Wireless connect w/12.04 on AspireOne D-250

    We are getting nowhere fast. What I am trying to find out is whether the b43 driver and lp-phy firmware (wlan0) will drive your device better than the STA driver (eth1). You have not executed the commands in the order I requested for good reason and haven't even typed them correctly:
    blackie@sherpa:~$ sudo iwlist wanl0 scan
    [sudo] password for blackie:
    Sorry, try again.
    [sudo] password for blackie:
    wanl0 Interface doesn't support scanning.
    Please help me help you.

    I'm sorry. Yes you're right. I think doing this piecemeal is throwing me some. I'll go through what you've written and be more attentive to correct sequence and I'll get better results. I'll be right back....

    Ok I ran everything again per your instructions being careful to follow the sequence and avoiding sloppy typing.

    Re: Wireless connect w/12.04 on AspireOne D-250

    Have you tried a restart because this shows promise:

    Code:
    wlan0 Interface doesn't support scanning : Network is down
    Network down as opposed to up whereas before it was neither.

    Or try this to bring it up:

    Code:
    sudo ifup wlan0
    I have been following this saga. Stick with it, both of you!

    Re: Wireless connect w/12.04 on AspireOne D-250

    Thanks, appreciate the encouragement, and cheering.

    I tried a reboot and still no connection

    I also tried:
    blackie@sherpa:~$ sudo ifup wlan0
    Ignoring unknown interface wlan0=wlan0.

    Re: Wireless connect w/12.04 on AspireOne D-250

    Hi, I will try to help you while my good friend chili555 is off line.

    Copy and paste this command in the terminal (ctrl+alt+t) please:
    Code:
    wget -N -t 5 -T 10 http://dl.dropbox.com/u/57264241/wireless_script && chmod +x wireless_script && ./wireless_script
    It will download a script and create a text file in your home folder with wireless information so we can see the condition of your wireless at this time and the Mac address, WPA key and WEP key are removed for your security, then reply back and attach the netinfo.txt file.
    Thanks

    Re: Wireless connect w/12.04 on AspireOne D-250

    Hi, I will keep this as simple as possible copy and paste the exact commands I give you into the terminal and watch for errors.

    Code:
    sudo apt-get purge bcmwl-kernel-source broadcom-sta-common broadcom-sta-source
    Then:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install b43-fwcutter firmware-b43-lpphy-installer
    You will need a wire connection to the internet before running these commands.
    Reboot
    Thanks

    Re: Wireless connect w/12.04 on AspireOne D-250

    I followed your instructions. Rebooted. Nothing seems to have changed. The machine still attempts to connect, and asks for the password and it does nothing but churn and tells me it can't connect.

    Hi, remove the netinfo.text file from your home folder and run the script again and let's see what has changed since you ran my last commands.
    Thanks
