    cannot get wl.ko to load on boot

    I cannot seem to get the wl driver to load on boot. Every time I reboot lsmod shows brcmsmac loaded instead.

    I've installed/reinstalled the bcmwl-kernel-source package.
    'modprobe wl' will load the driver
    depmod -a

    the wl.ko module is in /lib/modules/3.5.0-19-generic/updates/dkms/

    /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf contains the following:
    blacklist ssb
    blacklist bcma
    blacklist b43

    why will wl load manually, but every reboot the brcmsmac driver is installed instead?

    Re: cannot get wl.ko to load on boot

    bumping this up... every time I boot I run the following:
    Code:
    rmmod brcmsmac
    rmmod bcma
    rmmod brcmutil
    rmmod mac80211
    rmmod cfg80211
    rmmod cordic
    modprobe wl
    I have tried blacklisting every driver that I rmmod above... still won't load wl on boot.

    Have you tried blacklisting brcmsmac? ...and to make sure wl auto-loads, add it to /etc/modules.
