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

    I just wanted to thank you for posting these steps. They were very helpful in getting my wireless to work and I appreciate you taking the time out to write them.

    I also want to thank all of the people on the forum that posted any advice. I'm pretty sure I read through everything available and was able to get mine working.

    Thanks all!

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

    Hi,

    I have been spending the last few days trying to get my broadcom 4318 wireless working in 8.04 and I was unable to do it with this guide. I can't get even the light to turn on. The card works ok in windows. I'm tired. I'm going to bed. Help. Please. Thanks.

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

    Hi jesjep.

    This guide is really old (as is Hardy Heron). The newer versions of Ubuntu have better support for Broadcom wireless. There are proprietary hardware drivers that work with many of the Broadcom chips. Can you go into System > Administration > Hardware Drivers and see anything related to "Broadcom"?

    As I recall, the 4318 probably needs the "b43" driver, but I'm not 100% certain on that.

    You might try installing b43-fwcutter (open source) or bcmwl-kernel-source (proprietary). It should work the same as Hardware Drivers.

    I am so sorry to ask a n00b question.

    Where is the link as when I browse http://wireless.kernel.org/en/users/Download webpage... I couldn't find a link where I could save the driver onto my desktop.

    You might be better off trying to install the b43-fwcutter application from Synaptic first. The link that you are looking at contains the most recent source code for various wireless drivers. However the link that you are wanting is located in the "Directly downloading the tarball" section about less than halfway down on the page. If you click on it, it should download to your Downloads folder.

    If you do want to install b43-fwcutter from the Terminal:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install b43-fwcutter

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

    I enabled the restricted drivers for my Broadcom in Xubuntu 8.10. The deal was that the restricted drivers are blacklisted right from a fresh install, but still visible in the "Restricted Drivers Repository." I'm still wondering why they were blacklisted, because they work just fine.
    Hopefully they fixed that in the newer versions so no one has to deal with the Windows drivers any more.
