    Ayuthia,
    Thank you for responding to me so quickly again. I was able to get it working by just uninstalling and reinstalling the driver. Hopefully that isn't just a temporary fix. If I run into this issue again I will be sure to try your suggestion.

    I get the following error:

    You used a single quote for m='pwd' instead of the back quote "`" so it should have read:
    Code:
    sudo make -C /lib/modules/`uname -r`/build M=`pwd`
    If I remember correctly you can also do:
    Code:
    sudo make -C /lib/modules/$(uname -r)/buld M= $(pwd)
    and it will do the same thing but not use the quotes.

    Hope that helps.

    Re: How to install native broadcom drivers for BCM4311, BCM4312, BCM4321, and BCM432

    I'm having PROBLEMS with a BCM4311 card. Tried everything I can find for the last 2 days. I'm running jolicloud 1.2, but since it's based on ubuntu i hope you can help me.

    It seems like everything is installed, but the driver isn't activated.

    Here is the listing from: lshw -c network

    *-network UNCLAIMED
    description: Network controller
    product: BCM4311 802.11b/g WLAN
    vendor: Broadcom Corporation
    physical id: 0
    bus info: pci@0000:06:00.0
    version: 01
    width: 32 bits
    clock: 33MHz
    capabilities: bus_master cap_list
    configuration: latency=0
    resources: memory:40400000-40403fff


    I find the card under administration->hardware drivers, Broadcom STA wireless driver. But when I try to activate it I get this error:

    SystemError:InstallArchives() failed

    When I install the driver from synaptic I get this error:

    Error! Bad return status for module build on kernel: 2.6.35.10-1-jolicloud (i686)
    Consult the make.log in the build directory
    /var/lib/dkms/bcmwl/5.6.48.36+bdcom/build/ for more information.


    Would be great if someone could help me to fix this.

    Have a BCM4312 myself and found a workaround!

    Pretty simple actually, just install maverick's bcmwl-kernel-source!

    Link to the driver: http://packages.ubuntu.com/maverick/bcmwl-kernel-source

      It's important that you get the correct version, as the 32 and 64 bit versions are not compatible.
    2. Make the .ko file
      First, make a temporary directory
      Code:
      mkdir wdriver
      ... and place the downloaded package into it (hybrid-portsrc-_64_5_10_27_6.tar.gz, or hybrid-portsrc-x86_32_5_10_27_6.tar.gz for the 32 bit version)
      Then 'cd' into the temporary directory and un-tar the file.
      Code:
      cd wdriver
      tar -xzf hybrid-portsrc-x86_64_5_10_27_6.tar.gz
      Now, we want to make the wl.ko file, so we enter:
      (<2.6.xx.xx> is your kernel version: mine was "2.6.24-19-generic". Use tab-completion to find yours.)
      Code:
      make -C /lib/modules/<2.6.xx.xx>/build M=`pwd` clean
       make -C /lib/modules/<2.6.xx.xx>/build M=`pwd`
    Code:
    # make -C /lib/modules/2.6.38-8-generic/build M=`pwd` clean
    make: Entering directory `/usr/src/linux-headers-2.6.38-8-generic'
      CLEAN   /home/saa1959/Downloads/wdriver/.tmp_versions
    make: Leaving directory `/usr/src/linux-headers-2.6.38-8-generic'
    
    # make -C /lib/modules/2.6.38-8-generic/build M=`pwd`
    make: Entering directory `/usr/src/linux-headers-2.6.38-8-generic'

    How do I successfully make the .ko file?

    Re: How to install native broadcom drivers for BCM4311, BCM4312, BCM4321, and BCM432

    I'm at step 4 but when I input: sudo modprobe ieee80211_crypt_tkip
    I get: FATAL: Module ieee80211_crypt_tkip not found

    Then when I input: sudo insmod wl.ko
    I get: insmod: error inserting 'wl.ko' : -1 Unknown symbol in module



    Please help. Thanks.

    Hello. I realize this is an old thread and all relevant answers may already be around. Anyway, here is a link that worked like a charm for me, no compilation needed. Summarized:
    1. Identify the PCI-ID of your device by typing lspci -vnn -d 14e4:
    2. Look it up in the "Supported devices" table provided in the link
    3. If your PCI-ID is supported, you're in luck, because there is a package that will do all the work for you (see "Device firmware installation"). If not, well, I am not sure...

    Good luck!
