View Full Version : [lubuntu] Broadcom wireless

June 2nd, 2010, 12:18 AM
Alright, I've never had any problems connecting to wireless before and I don't seem to be able to find the fix for this.

I'm using a Broadcom Corporation BCM4312 802.11b/g (rev 01) wireless chip in an Acer Aspire 5515. I downloaded the Broadcom STA wireless driver and my computer detects the wireless chip. But thats where the fun ends, I can't see or connect to any other wireless networks. This is the output of iwconfig

eth1 IEEE 802.11 Access Point: Not-Associated
Link Quality:5 Signal level:0 Noise level:0
Rx invalid nwid:0 invalid crypt:0 invalid misc:0
When I try and scan networks it tells me that the interface does not support scanning. I can even connect to my network if I connect to a hidden network. It assigns me an ip address and everything but I have no connection beyond that.

I really don't know what the problem is, I appreciate any help :).
