    Re: Broadcom Wireless Setup for Hardy (Step by step)

    On the step where you make the shell script, shouldn't it read:

    #!/bin/bash
    modprobe -r b44
    modprobe -r b43
    modprobe -r b43legacy
    modprobe -r ssb
    modprobe -r ndiswrapper
    modprobe ndiswrapper
    modprobe ssb
    modprobe b44

    so that ssb still loads?

    Using Broadcom Corporation BCM4318 [AirForce One 54g] 802.11g Wireless LAN Controller [14e4:4318] (rev 02)). On Dell Inspiron B130.
    Used 2a from the link

    Everything went well till I got here:

    bill@laptop:~/bcm43xx$ sudo ndiswrapper -i bcmwl5.inf
    installing bcmwl5 ...
    bill@laptop:~/bcm43xx$ ndiswrapper -l
    bcmwl5 : driver installed
    device (14E4:4318) present (alternate driver: bcm43xx)
    bill@laptop:~/bcm43xx$ sudo depmod -a
    bill@laptop:~/bcm43xx$ sudo modprobe ndiswrapper
    bill@laptop:~/bcm43xx$ sudo cp /etc/network/interfaces /etc/network/interfaces.orig
    bill@laptop:~/bcm43xx$ echo -e 'auto lo\niface lo inet loopback\n' | sudo tee /etc/network/interfaces
    auto lo
    iface lo inet loopback

    bill@laptop:~/bcm43xx$ sudo ndiswrapper -m
    adding "alias wlan0 ndiswrapper" to /etc/modprobe.d/ndiswrapper ...

    w00t with capital zeros on this one!

    I can verify this method for a BCM4318 (AirForce One 54g) after a fresh Hardy install (alt. CD) plus all standard updates available online prior to this post. I'm using an internal PC card on a typical year-old desktop.

    Best of luck on future workarounds! But here's hoping (very sceptically) that I won't need one again...

    ===

    PS: A tip: I have no way to connect this box via cable, so I borrowed a friends USB WiFi dongle. His worked fine OotB in Hardy so I had secondary wireless access throughout the install. Hardy actually shows an 'available network' list for each wireless card, so I could still tell which was connecting.

    Re: Broadcom Wireless Setup for Hardy (Step by step)

    I got the same warning. I soldiered on and now I'm posting quick replies through my resurrected wireless connection!

    I think it's probably just a note from the lib devs to people like the OP (who might want to look into it in case the command is removed someday, breaking his workaround)

    Sorry for the multiposts. #106 was directed at Otto-C (I thought it was going to appear underneath his post and not down here)

    This message is telling you that the driver is installed, but it does not display that the device is present. That generally means that it does not like the driver. You might try to see if you can find another driver. You might check this site for a driver:

    You do not need to have the modprobe ssb before modprobe b44. This is because b44 needs ssb and will load it automatically.
