    Re: problems with the wifi card

    Install the package "linux-firmware-nonfree" via Software-Center and uninstall "ndiswrapper" and "ndisgtk" (Windows wireless drivers). Reboot after that. This Broadcom device is supported directly from the Linux kernel. Only the firmware is missing.

    Re: Broadcom BCM4311

    Thank you praseodym, I did what you said, but it's still no working. I can see that drivers are installed but it doesnt find anything (and there is wifi because my phone does)...
    Thank you again for your time

    Re: Broadcom BCM4311

    I feel that I'd remember that I created the topic in the absolute beginers users' one =).
    Anyway, i'll tell what I see with all the commandos:
    lsmod: it appears a list of things but I don't know what worths and what no.
    iwconfig: lo no wireless extensions
    etho no wireless extensions
    dmesg / grep b 43: appeared 3 list of commandos (Options, Supported log facilities and Supported log levels (priorities) )
    sudo iwlist scan lo and eth0 --> Interface doesn't support scanning.
    I hope this will be useful, but I don't know what to do right now..
    One more time, thank you for your time.

    Re: Broadcom BCM4311

    Hi, you needed to copy and paste the outputs of those commands..

    In the mean time..please open a terminal ctrl/alt/t
    COPY ! and paste these commands...one at a time
    This removes the ndiswrapper.
    Code:
    sudo modprobe -rfv ndiswrapper
    sudo apt-get remove --purge ndisgtk ndiswrapper*
    sudo rm /etc/modprobe.d/ndis*
    sudo rm -r /etc/ndiswrapper/*
    then.. Copy and paste these commands...one at a time.
    this installs the driver you need.
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install --reinstall linux-firmware-nonfree
    modprobe b43
    when you finish the above..enter this command...
    Code:
    lsmod
    COPY and paste the output.
    post it here.
    thanks.

    Re: Broadcom BCM4311

    Upps, sorry I forgot to copy you what appeared... but the first one worked, I mean, something happened (some lines have been writen), but the others 2 no, I write them and nothing happens... I can write on a next line, I appears nothing, nor an error message nor any results... but I tried and it's still no working...
    I know this is starting to be so long, but I feel happy in some way to continue going on .
    Thank you all again!
