    DELL E6430 upgrade to 13.10 from 13.04 and 12.10 (64 Bit) Wireless not working

    Hi
    I started out with my new E6430. Using Ubuntu 12.10 (64 bit) From the start I got trouble with the WIFI card. It worked but I have issue when using Virtualbox, when a guest should use bridge networking to the WIFI. no problem if I used Wiered connection. Even when I used ZyXEL NWD271N, it was working fine.
    An upgrade to 13.04 didn't change a thing. everything was working just fine except for the virtualbox bridging function.
    An upgrade to 13.10 was a bad choice. Now my WIFI is not working.
    It connect to the network, it get's an ip from the network, I can ping it's self and localhost but nothing elses.
    If I connect the wired connection, then I can work again.

    What is going on with my computer?

    Best regards
    Rikard Svenningsen

    Please somebody help me.
    Kind regards

    Please follow the "Wireless Script" link in my signature, download and run the script as per instructions there, and post back the report it generates. Preferably run it when the wired connection is disconnected and the wireless 'seems' to be connected as you say.

    While posting the outputs, please use 'Code' tags. It preserves the output's formatting and makes the post cleaner, compact and more readable. To see a quick 'HowTo' with screenshots, please follow the "Using Code Tags" link in my signature.

    Am I not replying you? Perhaps this is why.

    Thread moved to Networking & Wireless.
    Please, people, remember to BACKUP before you install that new system. Same if you're upgrading.

    Then reboot and see if it works again.

    If not, try changing the encryption in the router to pure WPA2-PSK (AES/CCMP). No WPA/WPA2 mixed mode, no TKIP. The pure WPA2-PSK (AES/CCMP) is highly recommended anyway.

    If still having problems, please run the script again and post back the fresh report.

    It looks to me that you have a Driver Issue
    For your PC, they should be a Linux Download in the form of a .tar.gz or something On the lines of that...
    OR
    If there isnt a Ubuntu Edition, Use a Emulator like WINE to install the Wireless Drivers.
    Also, Concult the Software & Updates Program as you may be using incorrect drivers

    By the way, Did your computer come with Ubuntu ready Installed or did it have Windows Already Installed?

    -- MrCameronnewton

    (P.S Also change your encryption on your router, sometimes this can be a Issue with ubuntu not understanding the Encryption Protocols)

    tar.gz packages are rarely needed on Ubuntu, and the driver this card requires certainly doesn't need that.

    Also, the only way to install 'Windows wireless drivers' on Ubuntu is ndiswrapper, and that also is not needed for this card. Wine (or any 'Emulator' or 'compatibility layer' software) only works for applications, not drivers.

    Hi again.
    done:
    sudo apt-get purge bcmwl-kernel-source
    Now the wireless don't even connect to the router.

    ****************** done ******************
    Before I run the command, I checked the Wireless on my work, and my Sony Xperia U hotspot.
    That worked without any trouble..
    But still not at home
    Change the router as discriped, didn't work ether.
    I have to mention, this problem is new, never got that problem before.
    No problems with Ubuntu 13.04 nor 12.10 nor 12.04 all 64Bit.

    Re: DELL E6430 upgrade to 13.10 from 13.04 and 12.10 (64 Bit) Wireless not working

    Some explanations to clear your doubts -

    Keep the change of the router encryption (pure WPA2-PSK (AES/CCMP)), it is more secure and more compatible with Linux drivers. It also has the potential to offer better speeds than TKIP (TKIP is limited to 54 Mb/s).

    The problem didn't exist before because the proprietary driver you were using is also a suitable one for your card, only the native one (the one we are trying to use now) is better in the newer kernels.

    Also, a lot of changes have been made to the latest version of the proprietary "sta" driver that you were originally using. It is possible that one or more of these changes may be buggy, causing it to not work properly with some cards now. Since the native one is proven to work better in latest kernels, it makes even more sense to try it, which requires the proprietary one be purged first - exactly what I suggested.

    However, it seems it wasn't purged correctly for some reason, because the blacklist file it creates still exists (it should have been purged too, but is not) -

    blacklist brcmsmac
    blacklist ssb
    Please purge it manually, so that the driver (brcmsmac) can load automatically on next boot -
    Code:
    sudo rm /etc/modprobe.d/broadcom-sta-common.conf
    Additionally, also remove the udev rules file which still contains traces of the sta driver -
    Code:
    sudo rm /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules
    It will be automatically regenerated on next boot, with only the desired entries this time.

    Reboot and check -
    Code:
    lsmod | grep brcm
    Do you see "brcmsmac" in the output? If yes, you should have a working wifi.

    What Wild Man suggested is a way to manually load the same driver, so you can verify if it indeed works. You can always use that command to manually load the driver, in case it doesn't load automatically for some weird reason (as evident in your "wireless-info.txt" file).

    As always, we are ready to dig deeper if required.
