View Full Version : Ubuntu 12.10 with BCM4321 works, except with N routers

January 14th, 2013, 04:25 AM
I'm running Ubuntu 12.10 and am new to Linux. I have a wireless card that is working via b43, but will not work with STA, wl, or b43-lpphy. I am attempting some network streaming from this machine to another over the network, and the b/g router & modem isn't cutting it. I have an N router that I would prefer to use.

My wan0 will connect to the 2wire b/g router with no issues. I can see my N router, but cannot connect - the connection symbol on the top continues to cycle until it simply says that I am disconnected.

I have run an lshw -C network

I just noticed that under my Wireless interface information, it does list wireless as only bg. I know my card supports N. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
