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

    To the thread author THANK YOU, this worked perfectly on a brand new emachines 250-1162 Netbook.

    (Why install Hardy and not Intrepid this late in the game? Because I want to run VMware Server 1.x ... and though Intrepid recognizes all its hardware upon install, it is MUCH more difficult getting VMware 1.x running on Hardy than going this route. Why VMware 1.x and not 2.x? Should be self explanatory, LOL).

    Now have the best of all worlds (for me) for a tiny road warrior setup:
    small form factor Netbook w/ 2GB RAM
    250GB HD
    LUKS Encryption
    Ubuntu
    VMware 1.x
    Windoze as a guest VM

    Cheers!!

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

    I LOVE YOU!
    I have been trying to get a wifi connection for WEEKS!
    I got wifi on my: (using "lspci" command in terminal)
    "01:06.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4303 802.11b Wireless LAN Controller (rev 02)"

    The physical PCI card says that it is a BCM4301, but this worked.

    THANKS AGAIN!!

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

    ok i need help. been banging my head again the wall on this one for about 5 hours now.

    using broadcom bcm9431bmpg in a compaq presario v5000

    ok not really mine helping out a neighbor but I digress....

    I ran the live cd and it gave me the you are using proprietary drivers message. I said great i can now install knowing that wireless will work.

    I install....now when I got to the driver window it lists nothing and I still cannot get a wireless connection. everything I see on the forums is about hardy with this issue but I have karmic to install.

    I ram the commands in the orginal post and every thing looks good it just does not seem to see the proprietary drivers if I boot from the HDD.

    and suggestions and or help is greatly appreciated

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

    hellz yeah...worked like a charm. That's a brutal slog to get up and running with no network connections and a Windoze box to work from, but had no issues once i collected the pieces.

    Thanks!

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

    This is very nicely done. Even a Linux newbie like myself was able follow the directions and get my wireless up and running. The confusing thing was that the wireless hardware in my notebook (Broadcom BCM4306 rev. 2) is supposed to work with the b43 legacy drivers... but it does not. The best those drivers did was allow my computer to see that there was a wireless nearby... it just would not connect.

    After a week of trying to set it up, I found this post and was up and running in a half an hour. Much Thanks!!!

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

    Many many thanks for finally getting my card recognized ! After so many pages of useless frustrating info. One problem...first my wireless is acknowledged on wlan1 and no wlan0....this may have something to do with why I can't connect??
    I have my key WEP key right..so why does the attempted connection just keep trying with no success?? My router is about 4 feet to my right so the signal should come through..and to my knowledge there is no security program in ubuntu blocking it.

    Any thoughts?? thanks in advance.

    ps why does my wireless connection always start in network manager as disabled?

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

    Edit:

    Not sure what happened, just started it up, and there was the wireless settings, it worked!!! Thank you!

    Original:

    Hi, I didn't realize this thread was so long, and I ended up following the initial steps, which resulted in the wireless option disappearing altogether... has anyone else had this experience, or know how to fix it?

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

    I really liked your step by step but despite following your way and other posters I can't get a connection.
    I see only one wireless network (no other in the area) an it acts like its trying to connect but doesn't. I have no antivirus and I'm totally frustrated now. Any help would be appreciated.

    sudo apt-get install ndiswrapper-utils-1.9
    mkdir ~/bcm43xx; cd ~/bcm43xx


    For Step 2, You can check your Broadcom wireless version with this command in terminal : "lspci | grep Broadcom\ Corporation",if your wireless device is different from BCM4312 (rev 02), please refer to the following link for this step and you can continue again with step 3 onwards:

    Step 2 (run in terminal)

    sudo apt-get install cabextract
    wget ftp://ftp.compaq.com/pub/softpaq/sp3...00/sp34152.exe
    cabextract sp34152.exe


    Step 3 (run in terminal)

    sudo ndiswrapper -i bcmwl5.inf
    ndiswrapper -l
    sudo depmod -a
    sudo modprobe ndiswrapper
    sudo cp /etc/network/interfaces /etc/network/interfaces.orig
    echo -e 'auto lo\niface lo inet loopback\n' | sudo tee /etc/network/interfaces
    sudo ndiswrapper -m
    echo 'ndiswrapper' | sudo tee -a /etc/modules
    echo 'ENABLED=0' | sudo tee -a /etc/default/wpasupplicant


    Step 4 (run in terminal)

    sudo aptitude remove b43-fwcutter

    Step 5 (run in terminal)

    sudo gedit /etc/init.d/wirelessfix.sh

    Step 6

    Paste the followings in the opened file(wirelessfix.sh)and make sure you save it before continuing Step 7

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

    Step 7 (run in terminal)

    Run this :

    cd /etc/init.d/ && sudo chmod 755 wirelessfix.sh

    Step 8 (run in terminal)

    finally run this:

    sudo update-rc.d wirelessfix.sh defaults

    Step 9

    Restart your machine and enjoy the freedom from those wires....
