hi

i am so close to smash my laptop into peaces because of this BS, after installing Ubuntu 11.04 nothing works by all the freaking guides out there.

my laptop is a HP MINI 210 and i want to see the b43 right under STA name in additional drivers but no,,
why isnt there any logic in this issue, ??

everything worked in 10.10 what is the logic here? why so much hassle with the NEW Ubuntu? no logic..
did they change everything from 10.10 to 11.04??

lspci -vvnn | grep 14e4

02:00.0 Network controller [0280]: Broadcom Corporation BCM4312 802.11b/g LP-PHY [14e4:4315] (rev 01)

i did sudo aptitude purge firmware-b43-installer, okey so what next?
hmm sudo aptitude install b43-fwcutter... then I see a picture of a "configuring b43-cutter wtf? how did he get that window in terminal? wtf I am ripping my hair out as we speak im so tired of my self not managing this apperntly easy task,, !@#$% me..

please help me](*,)](*,)](*,)

and ofc,,,, the issue is that I want to use b43 driver but it isnt there.
Fox-
You see the LP-PHY in the description of your chipset? That mean low power chip.. Recheck synaptic for the correct firmware.. I hope all you will need to do is remove the present firmware-b43-installer and get the low power firmware installed. Run this as well to make sure your wifi switch is working.

In fact since your wifi is not working remove all bcm related drivers and firmware. Reboot with ethernet cable attached.
Then I would reinstall the b43-fwcutter and the low power firmware module.
Then

rfkill listYou might need to reboot to get wifi working.

If that does not get it going then move to the maverick version of the STA driver, but I would not do that before trying the B43 and proper firmware. (firmware-b43-lpphy-installer) read the description it is for your chip.

my wifi is working, but not the b43 driver.
on my last ubuntu 10.10 install i used b43 with no problems at all.

thanks for the input though, i will try the steps you guys gave me thanks again.

Okay, I think I understand you can not see the B43 diver listed in Additional Drivers correct? Well I can't see it either but I can still use it on my laptop. In fact I am using the b43 driver on Development testing Oneric, Natty, Xubuntu 11.04, and Lucid 10.04. To make it a little more complicated I also have the STA driver working on the same laptop with the same chipset on Maverick.

If your wifi is working be Happy..:)

yes true I can't see it additional drivers, I want to use it without screwing my kernel or whatever.
damn this issue is a REAL PAIN :(

The solution to the wireless freeze is to upgrade to the latest kernel 2.6.39.0.

It brings a lot of new features and Natty is no longer a crippled beast tethered to an Ethernet cable.

The 2.6.38.8 kernel Natty ships with was buggy and connecting to a wireless network would freeze up the desktop, necessitating a hard reset.

Sometimes a kernel upgrade is definitely needed. The difference is remarkable, particularly with Unity! ;-)

I upgraded to 2.6.39 RC 5 a few days ago and on BCM4321 I still get the following:

Wireless working great as with the older kernels then as usual,
system freeze after a some minutes, cannot log out or move mouse or anything. I can also see the kernel panic in logs.
Yes it always worked before and now affects all the new distros based on latest ubuntu (mint and so forth).

Dell Inspiron 1720 duo with broadcom 4312 . Wireless works fine with hidden ssd&wpa+wpa2 enabled in network-manager. Only gripe is, when screen saver gets activated, wireless gets disconnected. any workaround for this? :-|

The new kernel has not worked with all variants of Broadcom cards.

Its worked on my HP Mini 2133. The gripe is the wireless button still gets disabled on reboot but when I turn it on to connect to the network, there is no longer a kernel panic and a sudden freeze.

I upgraded to 2.6.39.0, which may account for the problems you are having. If it works, I leave well enough alone. I mean I didn't install candidate 5. Have seen no need to yet.

Upgrade instructions are here:


You will have to install a PPA to get the update to install the new kernel.

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:kernel-ppa/ppa

sudo apt-get update

apt-cache showpkg linux-headers

sudo apt-get install linux-headers-2.6.39-0 linux-headers-2.6.39-0-generic linux-image-2.6.39-0-generic --fix-missing

Run the above commands in terminal and once the upgrade is finished, reboot.

Hey Thanks I am going to try this kernel and instructions to see what happens. I imagine eventually a new kernel will work. I suppose I should check the change files in these builds. It would be interesting to see what happened to **.38 and so on.

Hey! I am having a similar problem with my wireless card.
I am completely new to linux in any way, shape or form, and hardly have any idea what i am doing.
For some reason, i am not being able to connect wirelessly. When i was installing the OS from the CD, i was able to to connect wirelessly, but after rebooting and finally opening Ubuntu for the first time in my life, i can not connect without an ethernet cable.
My computer is a Dell 1458, and I think the wireless card is a dell 1515 though i am not sure. I really dont know what to do.
I hope someone can help me.

Thanks

You probably have a Broadcom card. To enable wireless networking again, you will have to install a new kernel from the PPA. Follow the instructions below and you should be good to go:

Are you connected online when you don't have an Ethernet cable plugged in? Then I wouldn't worry about it.

Hey Norman, I'm having the same problem with the wireless card.. I input the first line you had there, and it then asked for my password. But when I entered it, the next line was:
< url open error [ Errno -2 ] Name or service not know >

From there, when I input the same first line, it simply gives the < url open error [ Errno -2 ] Name or service not know > line again. Any idea what might be wrong?

Thanks

I take it you're on Ethernet?

http://ubuntuguide.net/ubuntu-11-04-upgrade-linux-kernel-to-2-6-39-0

This is where I got the instructions. I had to repeat a few times to get it all downloaded for installation.

It shouldn't be returning an error unless you mistyped something. I don't really get it.

Its best to copy and paste the text in the terminal to prevent errors from happening.

yes I can connect without ethernet enabled. b44 module is needed for onboard ethernet which is detected as eth0 . I've not tried both wireless and wired simultaneously.

You have to install the firmware package in addition to B43-fwcutter for wireless to work.

Or revert to bcmwl-source kernel. Ubuntu 11.04 requires either the B43 and firmware or bcmwl-source kernel for the wireless card to connect to the router.

Problem in Natty Narwhal - 11.04 with the Broadband 43xx Wireless Card: Unable to download firmware for wireless. (Also works for 10.10 and 10.04)

From the 'Additional Drivers' section:



Error Message:

Solution 1: System > Administration > Synaptic Package Manager > Search: firmware-b43-lpphy-installer > Click Mark > Click install > Close



I have no access to the internet so installing firmware-b43 isn't possible via internet, copied .deb file to USB, but don't know how to install it.

hi there guys and girls:D I would just like to clear up a couple of things. If you think that you need the b43 or the b43sta, these are two different mods/drivers the first thing that you want to do is type in

lspci -vnn | grep 14e4 this is what this code will do
ls stands for list
pci stands for pci cards in the computer
-vnn stands for find the model number
grep grep is a filter so it filters out the 14e4 thats why it is in a different color
14e4 is what grep (the filter)is looking for
so ls-->+<--pci=list pci cards
lspci -vnn= list pci cards with model number
lspci -vnn | = listpci cards with model number and stop
lspci -vnn | grep = list all pci cards with a model number and filter with grep
lspci -vnn | grep 14e4 = list all pci cards with model number and a filter with grep using 14e4 for the filter.


So what does this all mean well the b43fwcutter onlyworks for the model numbers
14e4:4307
14e4:4311
14e4:4312 IMPORTANT if you have this card you need the firmwareb43-lpphy-installer for your firmware
14e4:4318
14e4:4319
14e4:4320
14e4:5354



If you have model number
14e4:0576
14e4:4313
14e4:4315
14e4:4328
14e4:4329
14e4:432a
14e4:432b
14e4:432c
14e4:432d
14e4:4353
14e4:4357
14e4:4358
14e4:4359
14e4:435a
14e4:4727
14e4:a99d

then you are going to need the broadcom-sta-source + broadcom-sta-common

both the b43fwcutter and the b43sta use the firmware-b43-installer
unless noted

If you have the model number

14e4:4301
14e4:4306
14e4:4320
14e4:4324

Then you are going to need the b43-fwcutter with the firmware-b43legacy-installer

IMPORTANT all of these card also need the bcmwl-kerrnel-source

Ok now that we have found our card and its model number and we know what mod/driver and firmware we need. Its time to install all of it.
Important for these next steps you will need a internet connection using a cat5 cable(ethernet) or whatever as long as you are on line. If are dealing only with wireless see section installing b43fwcutter with out internet connection.

First before installing we need to remove anything that is there right now so open up synaptic package manager and type in bcm into the search bar then click on the green box's and mark for removal then press the apply button now reboot the computer
after rebooting start to install the things that you need by opening up synaptic package manger and type in bcm follow the chart above to install the correct mods/driver and firmware then reboot again is your wireless working.


If not lets do some diagnostics please open your terminal and type in

rfkill list where rfstands for Radio frequency kill stands for umm... and list is to list all the Radio frequency
if there is a soft block or a hard block please do a
rfkill unblock all if that wont work try
rfkill unblock wifi or rfkill unblock wlanNow that we know that nothing is blocked lets look at your mods/drivers

lsmod | grep b43 this will ls=list-->+<--mod=mods/driver so ls+mod=list all mods | means stop and grep is the filter and b43 is what grep is looking for
do you see you mods listed it would be nice if some of the people with working wireless could post there lsmod + there model number of there card

If lsmod looks good lets move on to the firmware

dmesg | grep b43 so dmesg looks up what the linux kernel sees and grep is the filter IMPORTANT if you are useing the b43sta then you need top type in wl instead of b43

Are you geting any errors go re-install the firmware again this is the part that seems to be "the bug in the gar"

Installing b43fwcutter with out the internet connection

Ok so you have no internet connection on your Ubuntu box for what ever reason. but you need it. Well here is how to get it. These are the things that you are going to need.

1) a blank cd/dvd or a penn drive or external hard drive or some way to transfer files (phone?) whatever.

2) you are going to need another computer of some sorts to download your mods/firmware


Ok, now that you have thous two things lets move on.

download this file http://www.omattos.com/sites/default/files/b43-all-fw.tar_.gz

Then transfer it over to your Ubuntu box

Now in your Ubuntu Box [computer] please make your way to your Home folder

Once you are at your home folder right click on your home folder and make a new folder and call it wireless

Now that you have made a new folder called wireless in your home directory. It is time to move the downloaded file into the new folder called wireless

Next we need to move that folder to the firmware directory to do this open your terminal and type in

sudo cp -r ~/wireless/* /lib/firmware/Now lets double check to make sure the download made it to the firmware directory. Too do this type this into the terminal

ls /lib/firmwareDo you see it there ? Good if not it did not moved. Go back to the last step and try again. But if you do see it lets move on to the next step

Ok so now that the download is in the firmware dir we are going to have to go there. To go there open your terminal and type in.

cd /lib/firmware Now that you have moved lets double check to make sure this next code tells us where we are in the computer file dir. This next code stands for "print working directory"
pwd are you at /lib/firmware if so good if not go back one step

Now that we are in the firmware directory. We have to extract the download to do this type in

sudo -s then enter your password then

tar -xzf b43-all-fw.tar_.gzthen

exitNow it is time to reboot

sudo reboot Do you have wireless now ? If not you did some thing wrong.
If you have some troubles please post here and some one will help you out


Well I hope that this clears some stuff up about the b43fwcutter and the b43sta and also the b43-legacy have fun with your wire less! Please don't forget if you have one of these cards and they are working please post your lsmod and dmesg with model number of the card thanks again also I would like to say that I am working on a how to install with out the internet for the b43sta but do not have the hardware for it yet I am working on it. give me a couple of days thanks again and happy wireless :D

Hi everyone!

My first venture ever into Linux territory isn't going as planned :)
During the install of Ubuntu 11.04 my wireless was working correctly, but upon it's finish, I find myself having this problem, that seems to be shared by many.

I have tried to follow every guide I've come across, getting more apt at Linux navigation all the time, but still nothing seems to work!

It seems my Broadcom card is a model 4313:


44:00.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4313 802.11b/g/n Wireless LAN Controller (rev 01)

When I try to install the driver, or rather activate it, I get the error message pointing to a file called jockey.log - so this isn't working.

Now, I have tried to install various drivers manually through the ubuntu software central. When I search "broadcom" I find five items: broadcom-sta-common, broadcom-sta-source, bcmwl-kernel-source, bcm5700-source and b43-fwcutter. Four out of these five, all but the bcm5700-source, have a green check mark next to them. So I guess I have those four drivers installed? Do I need to install some of them?

Or is there some other course of action I can take?

I have already tried the solution via synaptic package control mentioned in the OP. I get an error message (and this is my translation, as I run a localized version of Ubuntu)

"An error has ocurred
E: firmware-b43-lpphy-installer: subprocess installed post-installation-script gave error code 1."

It seems my Broadcom card is a model 4313:

@estomagordo, that card works perfectly with the default open source brcm80211 driver in Natty - or at least it does for me in a 32-bit system. There would be no need to install any of the other drivers. You said it was working perfectly at first. My guess is that you succumbed to Jockey pestering you to install the proprietary driver. My advice: ignore Jockey!

Please would you clarify one point. Two other members reported difficulty with the BCM4313 card, but there was a possibility they were running 64-bit systems. However, they never confirmed this even when asked. It would be useful to know if 64-bit makes a difference. Which version did you install: 64 or 32-bit.

If you are running a 32-bit system, or even a 64-bit, try uninstalling all the drivers and packages you installed related to Broadcom. Also check /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf to make sure one of the proprietary drivers hasn't blacklisted brcm80211 for you. If you need help with that, post back.

Try this in a terminal:
First get rid of the bcmwl-kernel-source


sudo apt-get purge bcmwl-kernel-source



A fix for the Broadcom BCM43xx driver in 11.04.

1. I uninstalled “bcm-kernel-source” package,


sudo apt-get remove bcm-kernel-source


2. I installed “firmware-b43-installer” package


sudo apt-get install firmware-b43-installer

3. I installed “b43-fwcutter” packager


sudo apt-get install b43-fwcutter

4. I typed into the terminal:



cat /etc/modprobe.d/* | egrep '8180|acx|at76|ath|b43|bcm|CX|eth|ipw|irmware|isl| lbtf|orinoco|ndiswrapper|NPE|p54|prism|rtl|rt2|rt3 |rt6|rt7|witch|wl'

The wireless has never worked inside Ubuntu, just during the installation process. So something's definitely wrong. Also, this is most embarassing, but I'm not sure whether I have 32 bit or 64 bit. Realistically, I should have downloaded the 64 bit version when I decided to give Ubuntu a shot, but from what I've found online, it seems I actually am running 32 bit.

Is there a surefire way of knowing?

I will try a mass uninstall now, like you suggested. But regarding the blacklist.conf I can't figure out how to open it.

Like I said, very very new at this.

I don't understand that. If you mean it worked when you ran the live CD, then it should work once you've installed it. My guess is that sometime between running the live CD and booting up your permanent installation the latter has been contaminated with stuff that Jockey wanted to install.


it seems I actually am running 32 bit.

Is there a surefire way of knowing?

Open a terminal. Run:


uname -pIf you get "x86_64" you are running 64-bit. If "i686" you are running 32-bit.


I will try a mass uninstall now, like you suggested. But regarding the blacklist.conf I can't figure out how to open it.

Like I said, very very new at this.

Since you're new, it's going to be difficult to get rid of whatever is interfering with the brcm80211 driver. Try this. Boot up the live CD and choose "try Ubuntu". See if you can connect wirelessly without installing anything. If yes, then consider a re-install, only this time do not let the installer install any updates and, above all, if you get a prompt telling you that additional drivers are available, tell it to "GO AWAY!" :wink: Once you've installed, see if wireless is working. If it is and something pops up telling you additional drivers are available, tell it to "GO AWAY!". :) Above all, don't be tempted to install anything Broadcom related.

To others trying to help, be aware. The new open source brcm80211 driver that comes in Natty works just fine with the BCM4313 card that estomagordo has. There should be no need for any of the other drivers.

Now, hopefully I can avoid intalling the wrong drivers by mistake in the future...

Thank you so much!

I would have saved myself plenty of frustration if I skipped to the end of this thread to read the solution to this problem: re-install. I will do just that, work out, and pretend that this was all a bad dream. But, since this is a problem that goes back to 10.10, shame on the people responsible for resolving this. There's a whole cluster of solutions that no longer work, and waves of people like me jumping on to the 11.04 bandwagon. Waste, waste, waste.

Re-installing was only a solution for estomagordo's specific situation where they had one of the few Broadcom cards that works with the new open source brcm80211 driver and where the proprietary driver was interfering with this. I wouldn't want to give the impression to people with other Broadcom wireless chipsets that a simple re-install is all that is necessary, or is necessary at all. What wireless device do you have?

In my case, I couldn't get the wireless working in "Natty Narwhal" from a bare install. My solution was to downgrade to 10.10, get the wireless working with the fwcutter installation (as noted in the DMESG output), and then did a wired upgrade to 11.04. Wireless worked straightaway after the upgrade, so no worries!

I have attempted the upgrade thru wireless, and the install gets hung up in places, requiring the system to be restarting the hard way, by cutting power and facing the FSCK, which will ensue.

So, that's my experience and I'm stickin' to it.

I have Lenovo Ideapad s10-3s with Broadcom BCM4313 wifi controller. I followed every single thread on 11.04 wifi problems and none worked for me.

rfkill list reports

ideapad_wlan: Wireless LAN
Soft Blocked: no
Hard Blocked: no

brcmwl-0: Wireless LAN
Soft Blocked: no
Hard Blocked: yes

The only way I did not try (and I wont) to unblock the driver is to install windows.

hardware switch is on, Fn+F5 for soft blocking works, rfkill unblock all is good just for soft blocking. There are none of acer_wmi nor dell modules loaded. Just STA drivers. But wireless is still not working.

Recently I installed Ubuntu. But I can't use internet. that doesn't find my Wireless LAN Card Connection, though Windows in my Comp does work well with no connection problem. What I should do? I have installed ndiswrapper on ubuntu and tried to do the same with live Youtube vedio. Everything was complete well except for My computuer couldn't unzip '.exe file' (I don't know why), though the person who listed up the video did the same and had his job done well. I can not connect to internet with Ubuntu as you know. I should read words and get what to do and reboot to linux again. It takes a long. I am Linux Biggnner, so It's difficult to understand what people talk to me. please take it easy to explain.

when I typed lspci on terminal, it says 'broadcom device 4727'
when I see the detail about the WLAN CARD on WINDOW, It says Broadcom 802.11n NetWork Adapter.

I got known some of ubuntu orders such as 'mkdir, mv, cd'. as you see, I don't know
Linux almost at all. I know I should study linux on my own. But to do so, I need
internet connection. I can hardly find myself studying Ubuntu with no internet
connection though. Please, Help me.

I've tried several fixes posted here and can't seem to get it right. I am an intelligent noob when it comes to networking so I'll do my best to describe the problem.

Installed 11.04 last week. PC is a Dell Inspiron 1525, with a Broadcom BCM4312 card.


~$ lspci | grep 802.11
0b:00.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4312 802.11b/g LP-PHY (rev 01)I believe I have installed ndiswrapper, and blacklisted the Ubuntu drivers:

~$ ndiswrapper -l

I copied the driver by downloading this file: http://ftp.us.dell.com/network/Dell_multi-device_A17_R174292.exe, uncompressing it into a ~/drivers directory, and by then running:


~$ sudo ndisgtk... and pointing it to ~/drivers/DRIVER_US/bcmwl6.inf

Wireless still doesn't work. I get wired internet fine. What am I missing here???

Hi All,

Upon freshly installed 11.04 the wireless did not work for my HP laptop, but thanks to the last couple of pages of this thread I finally got it to work.

laptop type: HP-dv6318ea
wireless device: BCM4311 rev01

I installed the updates recommended by the update manager. Then I installed the Broadcom STA driver that was recommended in the System --> Administration --> Additional Drivers. That did not work and I started searching for a solution (using wired internet :)).

Firstly I found out that my wireless device was not claimed by any driver somehow since this was the output of
lshw -C Network

*-network UNCLAIMED
description: Network controller
product: BCM4311 802.11b/g WLAN
...

So I wanted to assign a driver to it. I thought that perhaps the driver was blacklsited. The blacklisted drivers in /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf did not state the sta driver anywhere. Also, many forums report about problems with STA. So I decided to try the installation of the b43 driver.

In Synaptics Package Manager I deinstalled the STA drivers and installed the following b43 drivers:


b43-fwcutter
firmware-b43-installer


After a restart this took care of the UNCLAIMEDness of the wireless device.


*-network
description: Network controller

I unplugged the wire to test the network, but it still did not work. So just as in:
http://ubuntuforums.org/showpost.php?p=10758325&postcount=25 I looked for blacklisted drivers in any file in the modprobe folder by typing.


cat /etc/modprobe.d/* | egrep '8180|acx|at76|ath|b43|bcm|CX|eth|ipw|irmware|isl| lbtf|orinoco|ndiswrapper|NPE|p54|prism|rtl|rt2|rt3 |rt6|rt7|witch|wl'


I found that there was an additional file created by the Broadcom installation, called

broadcom-sta-common.conf
and in here the b43 driver was blacklisted:

cat /etc/modprobe.d/broadcom-sta-common.conf

# wl module from Broadcom conflicts with ssb
# We must blacklist the following modules:
blacklist b44
blacklist b43legacy
blacklist b43
blacklist ssb
install wl /sbin/modprobe --ignore-install wl $CMDLINE_OPTS


This made my wireless not to work, so I disabled everything in this file by changing it to:

cat /etc/modprobe.d/broadcom-sta-common.conf
# wl module from Broadcom conflicts with ssb
# We must blacklist the following modules:
# blacklist b44
# blacklist b43legacy
# blacklist b43
# blacklist ssb
# install wl /sbin/modprobe --ignore-install wl $CMDLINE_OPTS


Just to be certain I re-installed network manager and I think I also installed, just to be sure to have everything.


network-manager-pptp
network-manager-pptp-gnome


After again I restarted my laptop, the wireless configuration works! Finally my lshw -C Network looks like this:


*-network
description: Network controller
product: BCM4311 802.11b/g WLAN
vendor: Broadcom Corporation
physical id: 0

clock: 33MHz
capabilities: bus_master cap_list
configuration: driver=b43-pci-bridge latency=0
resources: irq:16 memory:d8000000-d8003fff


For the people who have it not working yet: Keep on trying, eventually you will succeed. :D It took me almost one entire day before I found a proper solution for the 11.04 (and I too wasted a lot of time on 10.04 solutions). I did not use Ndiswrapper for this wireless device, since the driver that was given by HP.com was not able to be unzipped to get the .sys and .inf files.

Good info Joren.. +1 to most of it also..

Ameet will have two issues that I see in blacklist.conf

blacklist B43
blacklist ssb

Placing # in front will solve that.

Then

Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4312 802.11b/g LP-PHY (rev 01)
LP-PHY is low power chip and needs

firmware-b43-lpphy-installer

If Ameet decides to try the b43 driver.

Hey, NM_Geo,

Again, I just did a fresh install of 11.04. My PC is a Dell Inspiron 1525, with Broadcom 4312 card, LP-PHY [14e4:4315] (rev 01).

From Synaptic, I UN-installed:
firmware-b43-installer

... and installed:
firmware-b43-lpphy-installer
b43-fwcutter
I commented out all blacklist entries for b43 and ssb in blacklist.conf, so it now looks like this:

Right, I uninstalled everything and I'm up and runnning without broadcom-sta-common or source. I wanted to check if it's okay to go on without any of it.

You have one of the cards that works with the default (in the box) open source brcm80211 driver. If your card is working without installing the STA driver, then don't install anything, and good luck! :)

I don't think I can emphasise this enough, and as I said before: The new open source brcm80211 driver that comes in Natty works just fine with the BCM4313 card. There is no need for any of the other drivers.

There are many knowledgeable and experienced Broadcom users in this thread, but experienced with the b43 and STA drivers. Perhaps they are not aware that there is a new open source driver. From what I can find by googling, it supports only a handful of Broadcom chipsets so far, including 4313, 43224 and 43225.

eth0 - realtek 8101E/8102E
eth1 - BCM 4312

Could someone please lead the way to getting eth0 working and then I can download the STA driver for BCM 4312.

Thanks.

addition: I downloaded RTL8101E from realtek's site and the STA from Broadcom's site using my desktop. The files have been uncompressed. Not sure what to do at this point.

update: I was able to get additional drivers installed during the reinstall process. Don't understand how it was able to get a connection when the network manager said eth0 was disconnected.

Problem in Natty Narwhal - 11.04 with the Broadband 43xx Wireless Card: Unable to download firmware for wireless. (Also works for 10.10 and 10.04)

From the 'Additional Drivers' section:

Solution 2: Another option is here (https://help.ubuntu.com/community/WifiDocs/Driver/bcm43xx#Installing%20STA%20drivers).

Update: The Live USB of Natty Narwhal (11.04) automatically detected that I needed the STA driver. After installing it and rebooting, the wireless worked. (No cable was needed for this.)

Update 2: After installing with the alternate cd, I needed a cable and after updating, I was able to download the STA driver through the 'Additional Drivers' section.
Finally my first post for the ubuntu community.


To install the restricted drivers(broadcom wireless drivers) in the ubuntu 11.04 Natty Narwhal without a wired Internet connection.




Insert the Ubuntu 11.04 (Desktop) live CD into the CD-ROM drive.
First goto the folder “pool\main\d\dkms” in the CD-ROM and double click on the “dkms_2.1.1.2-5ubuntu1_all.deb”. It will take you to the synapatic packet manager, click on install button here.
Next goto the “pool\main\b\b43-fwcutter” in the CD-ROM and double click on “b43-fwcutter_013-3_i386.deb”. It will take you to the synapatic packet manager, click on install button here.
Next goto the folder “pool\restricted\b\bcmwl” in the CD-ROM and double click on the “bcmwl-kernel-source_5.100.82.38+bdcom-0ubuntu3_i386.deb”. It will take you to the synapatic packet manager, click on install button here.
Once this is done, restart the system and the wireless will work just fine ( click on the wireless tab on the top right hand side of the screen and select the network to connect to. If it is a secured connection then enter keyring token when prompted.)
Using this method other restricted drivers present in the CD-ROM can be installed provided the dependencies are taken care of (the dependencies programs are present in “pool\main” folder)

This tread is getting long and confusing. I think what we need here is a few howtos for each card. Because I am seeing that the fix is different for each one. we need a Howto for Broadcom 4311, 4312, 4313 etc, and the PRO/Wireless 4965, and any others out there. Or maybe the developers could just make them work right out of the box.

Going back to some older versions of Ubuntu, my wireless just plain worked. The question is what got broken in the code?

It has gotten to the point that many people who install Ubuntu need to jump through hoops to get their wireless working. This is turning people off on using Ubuntu.

Thanks for hearing me out this morning. Maybe I am just getting old and grumpy.

In your case you should start a new thread and give as much information you can about what kind of an install you did and what you installed it on. But I can tell you this if you are trying to get a wifi card working you will need to plug into the Internet to get the right drivers. I know in my case I needed too.

I should mention that STA works but I wanna use the b43 driver not the STA driver, and in 10.10 b43 & STA worked fine they both showed up on the list "additional drivers" but not in 11.04 :(

and i use hp mini 210-1000

I found this website, it is easy to follow and totally fixed the problem for me: http://computerandu.wordpress.com/2011/05/04/how-to-solve-no-wireless-networks-in-ubuntu-11-04/

I used 'Alternative Solution 2', basically it says this:
1) Open the 'Synaptic Package Manager' and search for 'bcm'
2) Uninstall the 'bcmwl-kernel-source' package
3) Make sure that the 'firmware-b43-installer' and the 'b43-fwcutter' packages are installed
4) Type into terminal (copy and paste is best):
cat /etc/modprobe.d/* | egrep '8180|acx|at76|ath|b43|bcm|CX|eth|ipw|irmware|isl| lbtf|orinoco|ndiswrapper|NPE|p54|prism|rtl|rt2|rt3 |rt6|rt7|witch|wl'
5) See if the term 'blacklist bcm43xx' is there
6) If it is type into the terminal 'cd /etc/modprobe.d/' and then 'sudo gedit blacklist.conf'
7) Find the line containing 'blacklist bcm43xx' and put a # at the start of the line
8 ) Save the file (apparently some get an error message that it cannot save, ignore this if it happens)
9) Reboot

Just for the record they both show up in 10.10 on my Dell Inspiron 1521 but not 11.04, and that includes Xubuntu 11.04.

In my case I didn't have to do steps 5,6,7, and 8. I just jump from 4 to 9 and Rebooted. bcm43xx was in the list but I didn't have to rem it out (#). If you look at this file it said bcm43xx was replace by b43 which was just installed.

The question I have is why is this file not installed during the install of 11.04? If you are going to black list some driver and then replace it by another why not include it in the install process? It doesn't make any sense to me!

Not sure if I should be posting in this thread, but since my wireless card is BMC4309, I thought I'd give it a shot. Just installed 11.04 on my Inspiron 600M and wireless doesn't seem to be working. I'm a linux noob, but I browsed another thread and tried typing sudo lshw -C network in terminal. It returned this:

Since it returned information on my card, does this mean that drivers for it are already installed? Or should I follow the guide in OP? No idea how to interpret the results, all I notice is the DISABLED.

Has anyone been able to fix the frequent disconnects problem with the broadcom wifi? I am using the broadcom 4312 card on a ubuntu natty 2.6.38-8-generic-pae, with the b43-lpphy installed. Although it doesnt look like its dependent on the kernel or the STA/b43 or the card model, or the wicd/nm-applet. :(

wanted to share a success story due to Joren's post (and others in this thread).
Lenovo S12, with BCM4312 LP-PHY [14e4:4315], Dual boot mode with Windows7.
STA Broadcom driver aka "wl", kept ruining firmware for both natty AND windows7, making the wireless unusable or extremely slow..
I finally gave up on it, un-installed and installed b43, exactly as Joren told it (except I used the LP-PHY variant), and wireless hums happily!
Thanks, that was a saver.

Ok we have a little information. I got that from a search on "B43 linux"


I am not on my Natty distro so I can not see the driver choices in synaptic. Open synaptic and search for b43 then look for "legacy" keyword. Install the b43 legacy and the firmware if it shows up. I will reboot into Natty and look too.

Okay in Natty now too.. I opened synaptic and you need to make sure you have

firmware-b43legacy-installer and b43-fwcutter installed.
Let's see what that does.

The option to remove firmware-b43-installer and firmware-b43-lpphy-installer is greyed out, so I'm assuming they are not installed.

Hello! If you've found yourself under the conditions like me, I can advise you to install older version of bcmwl-kernel-source with Synaptic. I've just done it and got wireless driver working. Unfortunately there is something wrong with the new version of this package.
Good luck!

Well, it works partially....

Immediately after installing firmware-b43-installer the wireless worked. But after a restart, I couldn't get it to work with out doing this:


~$modprobe -r b43 ssb
~$modprobe b43


Then, it worked again. But I assume that I will need to do this every time I restart. What am I missing?

I installed Ubuntu year ago and after first update wireless was gone!! After several reinstalls OS and after spending many hours, somehow I managed to force wireless to work on. After that I had locked driver and everything was working perfectly until few days ago, after some updates was installed!!! Now I am running without wireless!
I know that can be big pain in the a.. but I must to fix wifi!
Now I got install:


firmware-b43-lpphy-instaler
firmware-b43-legacy-installer (I've installed this because without that I see on NetworkManager that wireless is enabled but it show that I miss firmware?!! But when I try to install, message appears: E: firmware-b43legacy-installer: subprocess installed post-installation script returned error exit status 1.The same message appears when I tried to install firmware-b43-installer.)
b43-fwcutter

follow drivers aren't installed now:


bcmwl-kernel-source
bcmwl-modaliases

In additional drivers I have only b43 (which was working perfectly before last update)
I've tried to remove everything and to install one by one, tried everything that found on forums but nothing. Now in NM there was no wireless, just wired connection.
Just to mention that nothing is blocked:
0: dell-wifi: Wireless LAN
Soft blocked: no

cicgo if you are using version 10.10, the driver that installs with "Additional Driver" should work.
First uninstall all the drivers you have installed.
Next open the "Additional Drivers" under your Administration menu. It should find the STA driver. Select it and Activate. (make sure you are plugged in with the network cable so you can download the driver from the repo).
That should work.

I used 10.10 and 10.04 and I have the Broadcom 4311 card and it worked fine. I am using Xubuntu 11.04 now and I need to install the b43 driver. There was a change made somewhere between 10.10 and 11.04. I am not sure if it's in the kernel or what.

thanx @irv but I can not even activate the driver. Shows me a massage: "SystemError: Install Archive() faild" when I am trying to activate STA driver and "Sorry, the installation of this driver faild. Please have a look at the log file of details.:/var/log/jockey.log" when I'm trying to activate the b43 driver.
I'm living in agony! :sad:

When you try to activate the driver do you have your wire Internet plugged in and are you able to connect to the Internet. If you are not you can't activate the driver.

I know you have the 4312 from another post of your. I have the 4311 which works with the b43 and not the STA driver. I read some of the posts at the beginning of this thread and while some got there 4312 working others with the same card did not by doing the same things. There are some real problems with this release of Ubuntu. I know it took me two days to get mine going and then just out of the blue it started to work and it has been working ever since. All I can say is start reading from the beginning of this thread and keep trying and who knows it may start working. I don't know what else to tell you.

Please follow these instructions, I wrote these and I've used them on both of my computers running Natty. If you have any questions just reply back, good luck!

1) attach ethernet lead
2) in "additional drivers", turn off STA driver that was auto installed after vanilla 11.04 install
3) in synaptic package manager, remove bcmwl-kernel-source, every b43/broadcom entry, finding them by using the "search" button on those two terms and not the "quick filter"
4) restart computer
5) open terminal,"sudo apt-get install bcmwl-kernel-source"
6) restart computer and enjoy the wifi.
(at this point I did not have wifi going so then I continued on)
7) in synaptic package manager I searched (again search, not quick filter) for broadcom and installed the following: b43-fwcutter, broadcom-sta-common, broadcom-sta-source. Already installed was bcmwl-kernal-source, so I left that alone.
:cool: restart, yes again. I was still connected to ethernet but I hovered over my ethernet and opened the list of availalble networks and could see my wfie, so I disconnected the ethernet and connected to wifi.

Have just got wireless working on a Maverick LiveUSB with a persistence so changes will be saved.

Everything was done in Synaptic.

1, Enable Software Restricted by copyright. Settings > Repositories > enable software restricted by copyright (multiverse). Click 'Close' a warning came about reloading click okay. Click 'Reload'

2, Search for 'bcm' . NOT a 'Quick-search. The one in the top right corner.

3. Mark 'b43-fwcutter'

4. Leave 'bcmwl-modaliases' as it is

5. Mark 'firmware-b43-installer'. Click 'Apply'.

6. Wait for everything to settle down and close 'Synaptic'.

7. Now click on 'network-manager' applet you should now see wireless networks around you.


If you cannot see any then repeat the above changing Line 5 to whatever works. You might need the 'firmware-b43-lpphy-installer' package.'

I just recently installed 10.10 and new to ubuntu.
I have a Dell Inspiron 600m with a broadcom 4306.

I was able to use another guide I found on here to get the wifi card working and it connects to open networks and WEP networks fine but I can't get it to connect to any WPA/WPA2 networks. Does anyone know any fixes for this?

Thanks in advance.

your card was manufactured before WPA/WPA2 and subsequently does not support them.

the only fix for this is to get a newer card (hardware) that does support said protocols.

As far as I'm concerned there is NO solution for BCM4813 cards.

After mucking around and countless googling, no 'solutions' have worked for the bcm4318 card in the laptop I was using.

Broadcom is the worst co. as far as Linux support.

I don't want to mess with ndiswrapper. Not an option for me. I'd rather just leave it as a Windoze machine if that's the only option.

I'm sorry folks, I've been struggling with the Broadcom card problem since March, with a 4322 in a Dell Latitude e6500.

I started with 10.01 and upgraded to 11.04, which improved things for a while. But although I've had days of good connection, I've also had days where it continually drops after a few minutes, requiring restarting the browser, the wireless connection or even the whole machine.

I've tried most suggestions here and I've had enough, so I'm going to buy a new card, the Intel Ultimate N 6300. If you look around it seems it can be had for less than $40 including shipping.

I'll post if it has any problems or if it has no problems.

none of the previous suggestions in this thread worked for me.



however, i found a solution that worked for me here...
http://computerandu.wordpress.com/20...-ubuntu-11-04/ (this link is now dead i gave a similar one below).

EDIT: here is the correct link..
http://computerandu.wordpress.com/2011/05/04/how-to-solve-no-wireless-networks-in-ubuntu-11-04/

i removed the sta driver and then deployed Alternate Solution 2 given in the link. i do hope it works for you.

EDIT:if the old solutions are not working and your new one does not remove b43 from the blacklist it probably won't work.

Thanks, Zander! That page looks interesting and the latest discussion is also intriguing. However, I have an update that is puzzling and peculiar. ;)

I'll try to be brief as I want to update my thread based on a specific Broadcom chipset - BCM4318.

I am curious whether the 'possible solution' in this thread and that web page is applicable to a majority of Broadcom cards or only certain ones. I mention that because there are a lot of broadcom drivers surprisingly enough. Or a lot of chipsets so a few drivers.

Anyway, I am not sure what happened but I discovered wireless working shockingly enough but no good explanation. I was going to try Fedora 15 on my live usb stick but didn't insert into the usb port in time. The reboot went to the grub screen so on a whim I booted up XP Pro. The wireless connected immediately. Confirming that the laptop's Broadcom wifi card works, I restarted and back at the grub screen, I left it at default to boot up Lubuntu.

Not really knowing what I was going to try, lo and behold, the wireless was enabled and I was able to look at the available networks (as it scanned automatically?)! So, I chose mine and entered the info to connect. Wireless was then working.

Does that make any sense? I only could think of maybe some bug with the Broadcom driver connected with the kernel (newer kernel versions?) or somehow Windows 'turned on' the wireless capability or something?

I didn't undo or blacklist anything so if a reboot into windows (and initiating wireless) could possibly do anything? If that makes no sense whatsoever, please mention so I can disregard this theory (I don't want to waste time if this theory is no good).

I would have tried the blacklisting and the instructions from you and that page if it wasn't working.

I still don't consider it 'fixed' or solved since I am not trusting it to last for any amount of time. But, at least, I have a few more things to try. I have rebooted the machine before when I tested other distros live (usb stick) so the 'reboot' alone doesn't account for the wifi success.

Way too much typing from me on this...sorry...

I also have an Inspiron 1545, with the same bcm4312 wireless card. I have never used the b43 driver, nor have I ever used fwcutter. All I have ver done is connect the wired connection right after install and enabled the sta driver. Any other time, even in prior releases, The b43 driver has caused me nothing but trouble and complication. I am really confused as to why so many people have had problems using the STA driver when it has always been such a straightforward simple solution.

Hello,I', a green hand to ubuntu, and my wireless doesn't work.

Under your power setting there should be an option to set "when lid is closed" do nothing. This will save you from rebooting all the time when the lid is closed.

I have this problem using a Dell 1525 Inspiron 32bit Vista and 11.4 dual boot.

I have no access to ethernet so need to install via terminal, could someone give me the instructions in the most simple form, I am learning how to operate within the terminal - sudo apt-get install etc. etc. (noob..just switching from windows..)

Additionally, I have tried to follow some instructions in this thread and identified my broadcom as the 4213, but nothing is working for me yet.

*I have tried to reinstall bcmwl-kernel-source, I have tried the firmware-bc43-lpphy-installer -- I am trying but may not have got everything correct. Also the synaptics does not show what I expect it to from peoples posts either..*

So my problem has been fixed - anyone with a Dell Inspiron 32bit Vista dual boot unable to connect to the internets .. here is my message -- find an ethernet cable, with all your power. Syncaptics Manager will really help you.

I did a lot of things so I am not sure exactly what worked -- however, eventually when my computer was finding wi-fi signal, but not connecting, I ...


clicked ''connect to new wireless network'
entered the name of connection and password
boom, i had internet access.'

(I had not tried this in the beginning, or throughout each step of the process, so I am not sure how important it is, equally how long-term the solution will be)

I also installed
-- ndiswrapper-common
-- firmware-b43 lphhy-installler (4312 only)
-- dcmwl-kernel-source ) reinstalled after synaptics installation via terminal >sudo modprobe ndiswrapper
-- sudo rmmod wl (and blacklisted b43 and ssb)

I followed a lot of the instructions from here, check out this link (http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=885847) it is the first post -very very helpful

Hey!

I have a problem with my Broadcom WiFi Drivers (?). WiFi is terribly slow, download speed is 500b/s (not kb/s), and it keeps disconnecting after 10-15mins. I have tried to install Windows to check my WiFi speed there, and guess what? In M$ Windows my download speed is 1,5mb/s So, i think it's broadcom drivers problem.

(I have tried both STA and B43 drivers)

Thanks for reply, josephmills!

It's not the download Source problem, everywhere problem is the same, for example, ubuntuforums.org loads for about 30seconds, but on Windows OS (same computer)it loads for a 1sec. So, i think it's driver or iwconfig settings problem.

Okey I came to the part lsmod | grep b43 and dmesg | grep b43 in page 5 post 44 guide,
so what now?

nothing changed as I can see, the b43 driver didn't show under STA driver :(


sudo lsmod | grep b43

I think some of you guys are going to extra trouble and don't need ndiswrapper.

Owners of laptops/computers with the Broadcom BCM4312 chips, you just need the -wl drivers.

See this page:

http://wiki.debian.org/wl

Additional info:

http://linuxwireless.org/en/users/Drivers/b43#Ubuntu.2BAC8-Debian

There's an Ubuntu page someplace but the page in the Debian wiki I posted first gives specific info about the install of the firmware for your wifi card/chipset. It should apply to your Ubuntu install.

June 26th, 2011, 03:15 PM
Under your power setting there should be an option to set "when lid is closed" do nothing. This will save you from rebooting all the time when the lid is closed.Just wanted to answer this.

I installed Lubuntu on my laptop so the 'power settings' is set up differently than Ubuntu/Gnome. I couldn't find anything except in 'Screensaver.' There's a section for standby/suspend after a certain period of inactivity. Nothing about the lid (being closed), though. :-(

okey, first of all now the sta is deactivated and it gives me an error when I try to activate it



Sorry, installation of this driver failed.

Please have a look at the log file for details: /var/log/jockey.log
And I am connected with cable now, my wireless is also connected with a different ip wow even when the sta driver is deactivated.

Fox the file you seek is blacklist-bcm43.conf.. It is still under etc/modprobe.d/ and it is the one created by the STA (wl) driver.

Joren, thanks, you are my hero! I think the defining factor was commenting the blacklists in /etc/modprobe.d/broadcom-sta-common.conf .I just needed to use firmware-b43-lpphy-installer instead of firmware-b43-installer, because I have the BCM4312 low power chip, (which does not sound very cool) and what I found out when I tried to install your package. It explicitly said "won't install, you have got the ... low power...".
Now it recognizes some wlan networks, need to test it tomorrow.

I have a Dell Latitude D620 laptop running natty. I tried nearly everything in this and other related threads, and I still can't get wireless networking to work on this laptop. I removed everything b43-related and bcmwl-related from synaptic, and used Additional Drivers to download the Broadcom STA wireless driver. (Had to log in as root to activate it; recevied a "SystemError: installActive()f failed" message otherwise.) Even after rebooting, I don't see an "Enable Wireless" item in the Network menu.

Oh yes, I checked the little wi-fi switch on the side. It's on.

Here's output from lspci, lshw, and lsmod:

You may be in luck today poltr1.. I have the same laptop with the same wireless card and I have it running Luci, Maverick, Natty and testing Oneiric.

Guess what I use the b43-fwcutter and the firmware-b43-installer. That is all nothing else.

Now I see you have wl in the lsmod. Let's go to Synaptic search on bcm remove all installed STA files and bcmwl-kernel-source.

Now I just did this earlier as an experiment so let's see what you get when you


cd /etc/modprobe.d
ls
paste the result here

We are looking for two files possibly that we are going to remove (rm)..
blacklist-bcm43.conf and maybe broadcom-sta-common.conf

Then we will re-install the b43-fwcutter and the firmware-b43-installer.
Reboot and all is well

I can not connect to my university, user-authenticated networks with b43, BCM12-LP. Normal ones work (WPA2). The settings of the problematic network are "WPA & WPA2 Enterprise", Protected EAP (PEAP), MSCHAPv2, with a certificate.
Do you know any additional module that has to be installed or un-blacklisted for these networks?

Per your suggestion, I installed b43-fwcutter and firmware-b43-installer, and removed bcmwl-kernel-source.

I didn't have any of those blacklist files you mentioned, but there was a "blacklist bcm43xx" line in blacklist.conf. This has since been commented out.

Rebooted the laptop and I now have wireless connectivity.

Thank you, nm_geo! This just made my day. :guitar:

Im new to Ubuntu and just installed 11.04 on this Acer Aspire 3000 and the wireless doesn't work is there a fix for this? or can I use whats been posted in these threads? I did a search and i found this thread. thank you.

Edit: man i have spent hours trying to figure this out. I installed bcml-kernal-source thing but my wireless card still will not start i have the Broadcom Corporation BCM4318 [AirForce One 54g] 802.11g Wireless LAN Controller. this is way harder than I thought it would be.

Hi and welcome to the Forum.

Use the guide n this Thread. The link is here (http://ubuntuforums.org/showpost.php?p=10801185&postcount=240)

You will need to install 'b43-fwcutter' and 'firmware-b43-installer'.

I am new to the Broadcom 43xx cards problem and can't honestly go through 417 messages in this thread!

My case:
brand new laptop equipped with a Broadcom Corporation BCM43225 802.11b/g/n (rev 01).
Kubuntu 11.04 Natty Live from CD connects flawlessly to wifi. Just give your password and the connection is strong and stable (tested on a WEP protected network).
Kubuntu 11.04 Natty installed on HD and updated (from official repositories only): the network card is not even seen by KNetwork Manager.
Followed instructions of post #1: Solution 1) gave no benefits.
Solution 2) fails to install the STA driver and suggests to look into /var/log/jockey.log
I will try... but if anyone has already faced and solved the same problem please help me!

Hi take a look at this (https://help.ubuntu.com/community/WifiDocs/Driver/bcm43xx)

I am not 100% sure that the drivers for Ubuntu and Kubuntu are the same. If they are everything will be okay. In Synaptic do a search (not a quick-search) for bcm. In the resulting list will be 'broadcom-sta-common' and 'broadcom-sta-source'. Try one and if that does not work try the other remembering to reboot after installing. Also check the 'Additional Drivers' for any installed drivers that are activated. If there are any WIfi drivers listed de-activate them before trying the above.

I hate to be doing this but I am still having problems after countless hours spent trying to get my wireless running over the past 3 weeks. I have tried everything I have been able to find and still not working properly. I have reinstalled Ubuntu over 20 times . . . The best I can get is to get it to recognise the card and connect to my wireless network however once I try downloading something it gets to about 2% or so and all stops. Same thing happens if I continue browsing. I can browse for a few minutes without a problem but then it acts as if (though still connected) there is no net or even local. Again everything stops. I am no expert at this as I have only been using Ubuntu for about a year and a half and have had some issues but nothing ever this bad. I was able to sort it all out without too much trouble. I will include as much info as I can.

Desktop Computer - Dell Inspiron 530
Wireless Card - Linksys WMP300n
Wireless Router - WTR160n
OS - Ubuntu 11.04 64 Bit

Hi refer to the post above yours. The answer is there with just a little bit of work from you. Different chip numbers with the same solution.

Ahhh thanks! last I checked was probably an hour or 2 b4 that post was up and when I posted I had been working for hours already and was trying to hurry to get out the door and didn't notice that one. I am home now and am going to get back to work on this hopefully that will work. I will let you all know!

So I tried it and the same thing ends up happening . . . net works for a few min then stops suddenly. However it seems to be going faster at least. Before I was only downloading at around 500kbs (or less) now it has peaked at 2.5mbs.

I just recently talked to a fellow college student who has little knowledge of linux. He is primarily a mac user but knows some about windows as well. As we were talking he offered up an odd suggestion "well if it was working in the previous version why not go back to that" he said to me. So I tried it . . . Oddly enough it is working. I have been online for about an hour and a half w/o any problems what so ever. I simply installed the STA driver from the additional drivers (hardware drivers on this version) then restarted and it works. I tested with the same download I have been testing with for the past few weeks and it downloaded in about 6 min like it is supposed to. I guess for now I am going to stay with this version since a working computer is better than a non working one (being a college student). My little netbook just wasn't cutting it. Now if only I can get flash/java working right on this . . . But thats another issue for another time in another part of the forums. Thank you everyone for your help.

Updated to 11.04, now I have no wireless. I have no access to a hardline connection. Just wireless on a separate computer.

I'm getting an error when I attempt to fix it. Error is as follows:

Hi you need to remove the 'firmware-b43-lpphy-installer' and then install the 'firmware-b43-installer' package, this will automatically install the b43-fwcutter package if not already installed and then reboot.

Okay, so thank you for the solution; installing bcmwl-kernel-source was the answer for 10.04 LTS and Broadcom BCM4311.

But it's very disappointing that any of this frustration was necessary. The Fedora 15 Live CD just worked, no proprietary software nonsense. :confused: and :(

Hi calmeilles just to let you know that if you upgrade from 10.04 to 10.10 or 11.04 your wifi will not work with your current drivers. You will have to install the following 2 packages either through Synaptic or in the terminal with 'sudo apt-get install' - b43-fwcutter and firmware-b43-installer are the right ones.
Who knows what will be needed for 11.10. Your guess will be as good as mine for that one.

have fun.

Hi,

I have a serious problem with my wireless...
my laptop has this realtek rtl8191sevb NIC installed.
I've tryed everything to update it or... find any solutions available that solve my problems...
i keep coming across broadcom drivers and packages in the software center but these wont work for me will they?

Please can someone help me find a solution for my realtek network card, it keeps getting worse. now I cant even search for wireless networks as they are blacked out... I'm really lost as I've only just started using linux for the first time... I'm technically savvy in windows but I've dived into the deep end with linux straight a way...

never in my life did i expect more problems then i get with windows...
i guess it's just the compatibility issues to be fair...


Before i could connect to the router, but without INTERNET access... which to be frank is useless to me.
im writing this hooked up via Ethernet witch is a pain as it's down stairs in a hallway.


as my name suggests, Knowledge is power... and right now I am powerless.
Please, enlighten me!

I would be very greatful!

After months of frustrations that wireless no longer worked after having upgraded my Lenovo S12 netbook to Natty, I finally managed to get it working.

Why the below procedure works no one knows. My theory, though, is that the very first restart after having activated the Broadcom STA driver sets some bits on the 43xx adapter, which are later misinterpreted by the rfkill utility. Thus, the driver believes that the adapter has been hardware blocked although this is not the case.

The procedure worked for me (Broadcom 4312 adapter in a Lenovo S12) but there's no guarantee it will work for others.

ja/

---------------------------------------------------

Make Broadcom 4312 wireless adapter work in Ubuntu 11.04, Natty, on Lenovo S12 netbook.
Don't bother with blacklisting in /etc/modprobe.d - it is done automatically and correctly.

1) Activate the STA driver through 'Additional Drivers'.
2) In a terminal window run 'rfkill list' (without the quotes) which probably shows:
0: hci0: Bluetooth
Soft blocked: no
Hard blocked: no
1: ideapad_wlan: Wireless LAN
Soft blocked: no
Hard blocked: no
2: ideapad_bluetooth: Bluetooth
Soft blocked: no
Hard blocked: no
3: brcmwl-0: Wireless LAN
Soft blocked: no
Hard blocked: yes <<<=== !!!
(If any soft blocking is shown, press the proper key combination - on the S12 it is <Fn-F5> - and rerun 'rfkill list'.)

3) Shutdown the laptop.
4) Remove any network cable.
5) Remove laptop battery.
6) Connect laptop to wall power outlet.

7) Find your Ubuntu live CD or USB stick.
8) Boot the live CD.
9) Select 'Try Ubuntu'.
10) In a terminal window run 'rfkill list' as outlined in 2) above until only hard blocking is shown. If no blocking at all is shown continue with 15).
11) Through 'Additional Drivers' remove the STA driver.
12) Still in 'Additional Drivers' activate the STA driver.
13) Close the 'Additional Drivers' window.
14) With 'rfkill list' check that no hard blocking is present.
15) Now, PULL THE POWER PLUG. Remember you removed the battery, so your laptop is powerwise now totally dead.

16) Remove the live CD device.
17) Put the battery back into the laptop and/or reconnect to wall outlet.
18) Boot the laptop as you usually do.

You should now have a working wireless connection through the STA driver. However, you may have to enable wireless through the Network Manager, and maybe reboot the laptop.

I banged my head against the wall with a Broadcom 4322 in a Dell Latitude e6500 for many weeks, trying almost everything on these forums.

The driver for the Intel Ultimate N 633ANHMW is in the kernel from 2.6 up.
I installed an Intel Ultimate N 633ANHMW a month ago and have had no problems with any wireless network, any wireless router, and the wireless connection is up as soon as you log on.

You can find a new one for less than $40 easily, and for around $30 if you look around.

( Running a Dell D620 w/Windows Vista Business , works fine thru Windows/Linksys E2000 & can "hardwire" to the internet on a USB/Ubuntu stick load).

i tried to access & set up Ubuntu 11.04 & my wireless net. was not able to "enter" any terminal commands changing the wireless setups. If I re-booted, I lost the settings in the USB stick.
Saw all the problems of others trying to get Wireless up & came to this conclusion:
I stopped trying to use the USB/Ubuntu 11.04 stick & went back and reloaded Ubuntu 10.04LTS. Was able to get up & running on Wireless after uninstalling "bcmwl-kerne--source" & "bcmwl-modaliases", then installing "b43-fwcutter", re-booting, configuring my Wireless SSID, Security as: WPA & WPA2 Personal & putting in the passcode. A re-boot started up the Wireless & showing ALL neighborhood nets !.
Therefore: I installed Ubuntu 10.04LTS on my Dell D620 until
the Ubuntu Team/users correct the Driver situation !..."G":)

I put off upgrading to 11.04 until this weekend because I feared this problem. Well, Ubuntu didn't let me down. I upgraded this weekend to 11.04 and as soon as I restarted my Dell 600 laptop, I lost my wireless connection and can't get it back.

There are no drivers showing up in the Additional Drivers and both the b43-fwcutter and firmware-b43-installer are installed in the synaptic package manager.

Is your Dell SSID off: (via chilli555)


sudo rmmod -f dell-laptop
If works make permanent:
add to / etc /rc.local or /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf

Re: Ubuntu 11.04 install wireless detect problem

Hi,
I am working with my broadcom bcm4311 802.11b/g wlan driver because it
is losing its detection of my wireless router.

I have success when I do the following:

Remove these (below) using synaptic package manager.
b43-fwcutter
bcmwl-kernal-source
firmware-b43-installer

I then reboot.
I then re-install...
b43-fwcutter
bcmwl-kernal-source
firmware-b43-installer

Now all nearby wireless networks are detected. I just connect to mine
and it works!

Then I shut down. When I reboot wireless networks are gone!
If I do the above steps all over again, wireless comes back.

I lose it every time I re-boot after a successful install.
What is happening? Is there a login script I need to modify?

Where is the 11.04 login script.

Thank you for any help.

Re: Ubuntu 11.04 install wireless detect problem

when you first reboot do a


lsmod

and see if b43 is there or not, if not you should be able to force it to start at boot with


sudo su
echo b43 >> /etc/modules
exit

Which will add it to start up.

then reboot and recheck lsmod

it should be there and you should have wireless

Hi you are so very close to the solution.
The problem in your case is 'bcmwl-kernel-source'. Remove that and reboot. Your wireless will work straight away.

Hello, my first post...

I have a similar problem as jplyons (http://ubuntuforums.org/member.php?u=488336), however I have connection only on fresh install of 11.04 and never egain (yes, Iinstalled it 3 times, wireless works every time until I shut down or reboot...)

Alittle bit of history:

I have Acer Extensa 5220 with bcm4311 (rev1) chip. It worked fine under 10.10 with b43 driver. With 11.04 it stopped.

I'm not a newbie really, but a simple user. Nevertheless in last months I learned quite a bit about the kernel modules and stuff.

I've tried EVERYTHING I found on the forums with no real sucess.

So:

STA driver doesn't work for me.
b43 works good once per instalation. After reboot it still installs, the wireless card is recognised, ifconfig turns it on, iwconfig finds it, iwlist scannes my wireless network... However there was no way to persuade the card to connect.

Can anyone make sense of this?

I'm desperate.

However Network manager didn't recognise it (I don't know how and why it recognises it on fresh install). I then installed wicd which did the trick. Now things work.

I'm sorry, it really did look like a wirelles driver problem.

Do you happen to know if there is a Network manager thread or forum so I can discuss the issue with them?

irda0 Interface doesn't support scanning.



However Network manager didn't recognise it (I don't know how and why it recognises it on fresh install). I then installed wicd which did the trick. Now things work.

I'm sorry, it really did look like a wirelles driver problem.

Do you happen to know if there is a Network manager thread or forum so I can discuss the issue with them?


Thanks for everything.
Only one point to make here.

STOP RUNNING YOUR SYSTEM AS ROOT.

It is not recommended at all

Everything you have done was on the wrong account. It should have been done in your user account. When things are installed with the user account they get installed with the right settings and stay set. Running your system as root is very dangerous to your computer.

Hello guys,

first of all I apologize if I'm posting this in the wrong place, but I've made a topic and nobody answered and I'm really getting desperate.

Can someone tell me if Broadcom Corporation BCM4313 802.11b/g/n Wireless LAN Controller [14e4:4727] (rev 01) is capable of working as an access point ?

I haven't been able to find out if the card doesn't support it at all, or if I need some kind of new drivers, but I've tried a lot of different solutions and still can't get this working...

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Re: Dell Latitude D600 Problem
Look what I found !....

[url]https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/maverick/i386/firmware-b43-installer
& listed file:

firmware-b43-installer_4.150.10.5-4_all.deb (5.1 KiB)

I downloaded the file to the "Downloads" folder, & commanded to "extract".
It installed.....found my Wireless & is up & running from the USB stick !!.
I installed the b43-fwcutter package from the Synaptic Package manager first. The wireless apt always showed me "no firmware", & the "apt-get install firmware-b43-installer" command would not execute.

Now I guess I can upgrade to the 11.04 version !......"G"

All you guys having Dell D6XX series laptops with the Broadcom BCM4311
802.11 b/g Wlan wireless card may want to try this......

I own a hp6710b laptop that has a wireless card bios check. This means for wireless-n I am forced to use either an intel wag4965 (currently in the laptop) or a broadcom bcm94321MC. Getting that to run with wireless n is a nightmare, and I seriously doubt if the drivers for the intel ever will work.

So I am kind of looking into buying a broadcom BCM94321MC wireless card to see if this would work. Reading all this thread kind of makes me wonder if I could connect to a wireless N network reliably and with decent speed when the laptop runs lucid?

Anyone using mentioned card in a laptop that can confirm it works great? It would spare me from buying a card and then find out it will not work either.

Thanks for any help on this.

cheers,

Sorry if this is very basic but it might help someone. I noticed that when building a new hdd in a D400 (which had a working wireless connection with the old hdd 8.04) that for some reason the wireless function was turned off, to make it work on 11.04 all I had to do was press Function+F2 (there was no real clue to this being the cause of no wireless connection or why a new install should deactivate the WIFI on the laptop).

when you first reboot do a


lsmod

and see if b43 is there or not, if not you should be able to force it to start at boot with


sudo su
echo b43 >> /etc/modules
exit

Which will add it to start up.

then reboot and recheck lsmod

it should be there and you should have wireless

This fixed my wireless problem. I almost feel embarrassed that it was so simple. Thanks a ton!

Regretfully, I have to retract my last statement. The script worked fine for a whole day until just recently my wireless card stopped scanning networks and now won't connect. I'm really frustrated that I can't figure out what the problem is. Currently, when I click on the wireless applet it reads that the driver is missing to activate. It doesn't make sense because I've installed every driver I can think of and I'm still not getting a fix. Here's the results of my last attempt:

This happens every time I attempt the installation. Why then would my wireless work some of the time if the drivers aren't installed properly?

I'm on a Dell Inspiron 1525 with a Broadcom BCM4312. If anyone can enlighten me as to what I should do I would be most grateful.

Just to expand, after I had freshly installed 11.04, my wireless was working better than ever and I'd really like to keep that going. I'm currently running over ethernet.

EDIT:
The wireless applet reads "device not ready (firmware missing)" when clicked on.

You were so close to the solution. Use firmware-b43-lpphy-installer instead of firmware-b43-installer. Then a quick reboot, click on network manager to see available networks. Choose yours enter some details as needed and away you go.

I can see the driver is active in additona hardware drivers .
It has been months I tried diffrent things with no help , I had some scripts in earlier version which did the job
but those seem not to be working in 11.04 .

Hi the following will sort your wireless.


I also had this problem of wireless not working with the Broadcom STA Wireless driver after up-grading to 'Natty Narwhal' on my Acer laptop with a Broadcom 4311 wifi module. A big thank you to all who posted before me even though the suggestions put forward did not work. However I found a work around this problem and I hope others may find it useful.
The solution in my case worked using a network cable and 'Synaptic Package Manager'. This is what I did:-
1) In Additional drivers I de-activated the STA driver
2) In 'Synaptic' I then removed them completely.
3) Went back into Synaptic and found 'b43-fwcutter' and 'firmware-b43-installer'. I installed both packages because I was not sure which one was needed.
4) After a reboot wireless signed in to the router and the cable removed

Change the firmware-b43-installer to firmware-b43-lpphy-installer.

Try turning it on via the hardware switch or a combination of keys (the Fn key+F2)usually works for Dell laptops. Or there might be a setting in the BIOS.

Hi,
I went through a great deal to try to get this puppy to work in Kubuntu 11.04. The final solution - for my rig (HP DV6233se) was to uninstall the bcmwl-kernel-source. I did confirm that the bcm43xx was blacklisted and removed the blacklist - didn't work. No fix on the broadcom sta driver ever worked. But after installing firmware-b43-installer (which automatically brought in cutter) I could get it to work, but I had to log into a terminal every time @ boot up and type in sudo modprobe b43. It was only after removing the above source file and rebooting that my rig came up with a working wireless for Kubuntu 11.04. Hope this is useful for someone else.

Perhaps I am missing something here.. and believe me I often do..
Do you still have to do the modprobe b43 each time or not? If you do then b43 is in the blacklist files.. not just the blacklist.conf file but one that is created by the installation of the STA (wl) driver..


grep b43 /etc/modprobe.d/*

That code will tell us if you have the b43 blacklisted and the file name also.

I don't normally use wifi, but it bugged me that I couldn't see any of the wireless networks around me.

The complete removal of bcmwl-kernel-source can not be stressed enough. I fought with this for two days on a Dell 1525 with a BCM4311. Installing firmware, reboot, uninstall firmware and install b43-installer and then reboot. It was not until I completely removed that package and THEN installed firmware-b43-installer that it worked. This is on Ubuntu 11.10 Oneiric Ocelot Beta 2.

In Natty, my Thinkpad Edge 11" wifi worked fine out-of-the-box.
In Oneiric, it didn't.

The solution that worked for me that I found was to blacklist exactly two drivers by adding a couple of lines to the end of /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf

@ westie 457
Thank you very much for offering to have a look. Yes, my broadcom wifi has a history of creating headaches, however this is a new problem.

(1 - Background)
A bit of background: I'm on a Dell Studio 1747 (specs here (http://www.notebookreview.com/default.asp?newsID=5419)), which has a Broadcom wireless adapter (BCM43224 14e4:4353). According to the Broadcom website (www.broadcom.com/support/802.11/linux_sta.php), it is compatible with the STA driver (the one that can be enabled through system settings). Up until upgrading to 11.10 Oneiric all was well. Now, however, the computer seems to connect just fine to the router, but no traffic happens at all. Trying with Windows or a different computer with Oneiric has no such problems.

(2 - Things tried or considered)
I noticed that the Broadcom website (www.broadcom.com/support/802.11/linux_sta.php) released a new driver today, 21 Oct. Beforehand, there was a note on that site suggesting that there's an incompatibility with kernels from version 3. With the new release that note has been taken down. I tried to follow the instructions there to use the new driver, but nothing changed (perhaps I made a mistake, though).

One interesting twist is that I can actually get wireless working by adding to /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf

blacklist bcma
blacklist brcmsmac However, it seems to make the connection quite slow.

Other options that I have considered are to try the b43-fwcutter drivers instead. However, most sites list my broadcom card as more compatible with the STA driver.
Finally, there seems to be a bug in oneiric concerning wireless connections using the N channel/standard. I haven't investigated that further.

(3 - output from commands)
Anyway, so much for background information. Without further ado, the output from the commands you asked for - and some more.

@ merry_meerkat

Well you certainly know more about your card - and provided enough information too.

Before trying any b43 drivers have you tried configuring your router to NOT use 'n-band' speeds. Unless you have a super-duper high speed connection from your ISP or you have a high volume home network you do not need the bandwidth.
If blocking the 'n' band makes no difference then we will try the b43 drivers.

October 22nd, 2011, 02:25 PM
Thanks, westie457! This has solved the problem for me - although it is really a workaround rather than a full solution.

It would appear that it is the bug in Oneiric with 802.11N (bug 836250) (https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/oneiric/+source/linux/+bug/836250). As you suggested, I have changed my router to use 802.11G instead of N and now all is well. Thanks again! I would have probably instead tried first the b43 drivers and then tried to disable N on the computer rather than the router. This is a much cleaner solution!

Here's a recap of the situation as I understand it to be. Perhaps this helps others with this problem or setup:
Computer setup: Dell Studio 1747 (http://www.notebookreview.com/default.asp?newsID=5419) with Broadcom (http://www.broadcom.com/support/802.11/linux_sta.php) BCM43224 14e4:4353 wireless running Ubuntu 11.10 x64. Ubuntu suggests the proprietary STA driver for that under > System settings > Additional drivers and generally speaking that is correct. However, at this time there is a bug in Oneiric with connecting to 802.11N wireless standard. So, changing the router to use the (older and slower) 802.11G standard solves this problem. Hopefully the bug will get solved and we can switch the N back on at some point. I'll try it whenever there's an update to bcmwl-kernel-source (http://packages.ubuntu.com/oneiric/bcmwl-kernel-source).

Changing router configuration: usually done by going to http://192.168.1.1 In my case it's a Swisscom Centro Grande (go to > Settings > WLAN > Transmission).

Cheers.

@ paridoth

Open Software Centre and search for 'bcm' then remove everything except b43-fwcutter and reboot.

Once the system has restarted open SC and repeat the search. Now install firmware-b43-installer and reboot again. This time disconnect the USB device. When the system is running click on the Network Manager icon and click on your wireless network to connect entering any details as necessary.

Any problems post back here.

Thank you.

Use the old kernel.. 2.6.39 for oneiric >>> http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v2.6.39.4-oneiric/ (http://kernel.ubuntu.com/%7Ekernel-ppa/mainline/v2.6.39.4-oneiric/), have a bug in kernel 3.*
(http://kernel.ubuntu.com/%7Ekernel-ppa/mainline/v2.6.39.4-oneiric/)

Hi Bremaya

Is there a bug filed about this? I was struggling to get ad-hoc networking to work, and have ended up breaking my wireless entirely...

My Compaq laptop's wireless card was working fine in Natty. Recently upgraded to Oneiric (Ubuntu Studio) and have not been able to solve the driver issue yet.

I have a Broadcom 4306 802.11b/g internal card. Running a Clawhammer AMD64 with 64bit installation.

It seems that it may be possible with b43 driver -
4320 version 3 - somehow found that out.

HOWEVER, I'm confused as to which of the many solutions there are that I should try (again), and be successful.

ANY suggestions / leads would be greatly appreciated !

cheers.

Whoa... nice - Thank you Westie457 . OK - it didn't work at first, so I re-installed 11.10 WITHOUT updating/upgrading. THEN I installed the b43fwcutter from synaptic and rebooted. After that I installed the firmware-b43-installer and rebooted. IT STILL DIDN'T WORK, my wireless card was still in an inactive state. THEN I did the upgrades and updates to 11.10 and somehow noticed that firmware-b43-installer was NOT installed after this(?), so I reinstalled it and without even rebooting, the network manager showed that my wireless card was active and I could connect. NICE WORK ! THANK YOU !

Hey, I'm new to this forum and to Ubuntu at all, first installation and I love it! But I couldn't get the wireless to work. Tried different solutions on the net, I want to say that the solution alca75 posted above is also working on my lenovo thinkpad with bcm43224 chip. Thanks!

Here is an easy method of getting Internet access on a BCM4312 (only version of the Broadcom I have) on 11.10. VERY simple and much easier than the madness of some other methods.

1. Insert live CD, USB, DVD
2. Boot into live session
3. Navigate to Additional Drivers
4. Select the STA driver and activate
5. When it says restart to take effect, DO NOT RESTART!! You're in a live session...it'll just start it over from scratch. INSTEAD, just
sudo modprobe wl in a terminal.
6. Wait a few moments, enter security passcodes if required, then connect.

NOW do the install and you will NEVER have to connect via wire and you will have a fully operational wireless device as soon as the install is over. PLUS you can use the net while installing if you choose.

This method is so much easier than any of the others I have seen posted and it eliminates the need to be tied to the router. Just install the driver, modprobe it and enjoy. Simple. Whether this works for the b43, I do not know. I never choose the b43 with a BCM4312 because the STA simply works better on it for me.

Note: for some reason this does NOT work in Kubuntu or Xubuntu or Lubuntu (unfortunately). Would be great to have consistency in this regard, but at least Ubuntu works with it.

A different machine, same issue. Lenovo U160 running 11.10. Connecting by BT only, no eth, can't get wireless to work. Broadcom BCM4313 14e4:4727(rev01) Subsystem Broadcom (14e4:0510). At this point I have the most current STA driver installed and active. Wireless will not enable.

In case someone wants to jump on the issue, I have done the following things found on this forum topic. Uninstalled the STA driver, tried to install the b43 drivers, firmware installer etc but install failed, no hardware found - aborted. Same for the legacy set except legacy set said use the other set. Where is Synaptic package manager in 11.10? All I find is the Ubuntu Software Center in 11.10. So, blacklisted b43 or not doesn't seem to matter in my case. The U160 was indeed working fine with Win7 wireless. Unless there is a hint I'll try setting the MiFi to "g" and see if that helps using the STA driver.

There probably will be a clue to help.

** SOLVED !! **


Ok, I've been wrestling with this issue for over 2 days now, and I just decided to give up and put my fate in the skilled hands of the Forum-Wizzards here... :)

I try to get online on a WPA2-encrypted network (from a university), but i always get errors.

The Univ makes us use the 'XpressConnect'-application (from Cloudpath Networks, Inc.) to obtain a certificate to go online, but it always fails on me. I get the error 'eth1 no authentication information' (in the terminal) and it halts on 'loading configuration information', stating 'A configuration was not found for this device'.

I freshly installed 11.10 on an old netbook (HP Mini 1000), with a Broadcom BCM4312 802.11b/g LP-PHY, and try to get it to hook up with the University network.

I already discovered that i didn't have the right drivers with a fresh 11.10 install, and went through this (https://help.ubuntu.com/community/WifiDocs/Driver/bcm43xx#Installing%20STA%20drivers) post, installing both the STA and b43- drivers. None worked... :(:(

Are there specific drivers for the LP-PHY-version of this wireless card that i have to install ? Why is my card not sharing authentication info with that Xpressconnect application ?

Obviously the netbook has no access to internet, but my Macbook has, so i can 'sneakernet' files between the two...

I have my uname -r, lspci -vnn, lsmod and rfkill list in attachment.

UPDATE:
I found this bug-thread (https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/b43-fwcutter/+bug/651010) and realise now that there is a separate driver for the low-power version of this Wireless card. I copied it to a USB-stick and tried to install it on the Netbook. Off course, the package wants to go online when i run the sudo dpkg command...
Is there a version that has all the needed resources in it, so i can install without going online ? Or -if no such version is available- what steps do i take to install it without using an internet connection ?

** SOLVED !! **
I was finally able to install the necessary LP-PHY driver and followed this:


Select the University network from the Wireless Networks list

a dialog called "Wireless Network Authentication Required" will pop up


Change "Inner authentication" to PAP
In the Username field, enter your actual University username.
In the Password field, enter your actual University Password.
Click Connect to connect to the University network.
Click Ignore to the CA dialog box that pops up
Turn network card off and then on

Hi all,
I run Ubuntu on my HP Envy 14. This computer has a Broadcom 43224 wireless adapter. Wifi was perfect with 11.04 and is just a nightmare with 11.10 !

My wifi link can stay connected and running for hours or can just cut off every 2 mn. In that case, I have to switch off wireless in Network-Manager and switch on again, and wifi is back for...I don't know, surprise!

I read a bit around the wifi issue on Oneiric but without real solution has only the STA driver supports the 43224 chipset.

So I'm here, asking for a fix, thanks.

i have a similar problem additional drivers does not detect any of the restricted drivers that i need to use my wifi card. mine is broadcom bcm4318 i have tried all of the different help ttorials on the internet and none of them helped. i have installed the b43fwcutter installed the broadcom source code and i installed every app that showed up when i serched broadcom and it didnt help a thing. i have no idea why my wifi card will not work on these newer versions of ubuntu but i had it working perfectly on 10.10 untill i did an upgrade to 11.04 and it no longer worked. now i have updated to 11.10 and still no wifi. i would really really really apreciate anyhelp i could get on this awful situation
