    Wireless BCM4312 LP-PHY can not connect on 13.04

    I upgraded to 13.04 last week and I have been unable to connect through my wireless conneciton since. I have followed your instructions for building a replacement driver and I still have the same problems. I have run your script and here is the output:

    I have noticed that my driver seems to be blacklisted (b43) and have commented that line but this has not worked either. I am currently using a live usb stick with Ubuntu 13.04 on it and wireless works fine while usinf this. If I reboot into my installed version (installed using this flash drive) the wireless will not work. There is no option to select it from top menu bar and there is no entry in the system settings -> network section either.

    When booting my installed version I notice error messages around PHY0 which you can see in the dmesg section of your output.

    I did also have problems in 12.04 with this driver and fixed it that time through this thread. I have tried this fix again but not with the current installation.

    Re: Wireless issues

    @leg

    Hi, the patch you applied is for the wl driver and this card...
    Code:
    Network controller [0280]: Broadcom Corporation BCM4313 802.11b/g/n Wireless LAN Controller [14e4:4727]
    your card is not the same and requires a different driver..
    Code:
    Network controller [0280]: Broadcom Corporation BCM4312 802.11b/g LP-PHY [14e4:4315]<-your card
    Please open a terminal and do..
    Code:
    sudo apt-get remove --purge bcmwl-kernel-source
    sudo apt get install firmware-b43-lpphy-installer
    sudo modprobe b43
    *If this does NOT fix your problem, please start a new thread
    as your card is not the same.
    thanks.

    Re: Wireless issues

    ok I can see that now but the problem I have is that I have no network without my wireless. How can I achieve this by downloading the driver I need using the live usb disk and then applying it from my install.

    Download the "linux-firmware-nonfree" package from here : http://packages.ubuntu.com/precise/a...nfree/download

    Copy it to your Ubuntu machine and double-click to install. Then remove the incorrect packages if you haven't already -
    Code:
    sudo apt-get purge bcmwl-kernel-source broadcom-sta-common broadcom-sta-source
    Reboot and see if your wireless starts working.

    Thank you very much I am now on line from my installation wireless working nicely. I apologise for the schoolboy error or trying to install the wrong driver.

    No problem! And that driver confuses even many of the well experienced users, especially since it is suggested by the OS itself.

    Perhaps some of us need to become developers as well and see why it does so.. (and of course fix it thereafter).
