  1. Poll: Re: How-To: Dell 1390 WLAN (Broadcom 4311 [14e4:4311]) for Laptops using ndiswrapper

    What up JW! I just logged back in here after a really long time and read through some of our old troubleshooting posts about dell wireless and ndiswrapper. Brought back memories! Just wanted to...
  2. [SOLVED] Re: Ubuntu 9.10 - nvidia driver 185 - black screen on startup

    Stefano,

    I just wanted to say thank you and let people know that your solution worked perfectly for me as well. I was pulling my hair out trying to figure out why my AGP GeForce 6200 was causing...

    What are your error messages?

    Hey, Mike! I think I have just the thing you need:

  5. Poll: Re: HOWTO: Dell Inspiron E1505 Wireless (Broadcom 1390 WLAN)

    Well since you asked so nicely :cool:.

    Do a sudo iwlist scanning, then immediately do a dmesg and sudo cat /var/log/syslog, and post the relevant rows from those two commands (most likely the rows...
  6. Poll: Re: HOWTO: Dell Inspiron E1505 Wireless (Broadcom 1390 WLAN)

    In console terms, it's commonly referred-to as a "pipe", and can usually be found on the same key as the backslash (usually above the return key).

    It's probably best that you just copy / paste...
  7. Poll: Re: HOWTO: Dell Inspiron E1505 Wireless (Broadcom 1390 WLAN)

    There would be no reason if everything were done properly, which most likely isn't the case. Reboot, then immediately do a

    sudo cat /etc/modules | grep ndis
    sudo cat /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist...
  8. Poll: Re: HOWTO: Dell Inspiron E1505 Wireless (Broadcom 1390 WLAN)

    I'm fairly certain that bcmwl6.inf is the vista driver, which has been known to not work. I would try the driver in the how-to first.
  9. Poll: Re: HOWTO: Dell Inspiron E1505 Wireless (Broadcom 1390 WLAN)

    Good question. From a business perspective, I doubt that Broadcom will ever release the specs for its cards to the community. Therefore, the community will have to rely on the reverse-engineering...
  10. Poll: Re: HOWTO: Dell Inspiron E1505 Wireless (Broadcom 1390 WLAN)

    It's been a while since I've used KNetworkManager. If it's at all similar to gnome's, there should be a setting that says "enable wireless" -- make sure that's checked. Also, see if there's an...
  11. Poll: Re: HOWTO: Dell Inspiron E1505 Wireless (Broadcom 1390 WLAN)

    That's correct. Generally, it only takes two or three times. If you've done that command more than ten times, you've gone too far. I should probably note that in the how-to.
  12. Poll: Re: HOWTO: Dell Inspiron E1505 Wireless (Broadcom 1390 WLAN)

    I know that I'm being a pedant, but my method works perfectly for your laptop and card model. In my method, I state that if you're using a Dell laptop that's NOT an Inspiron E1505/6400, then you...
  13. Poll: Re: HOWTO: Dell Inspiron E1505 Wireless (Broadcom 1390 WLAN)

    Sure, just do:
    sudo ndiswrapper -e bcmwl5
    sudo ndiswrapper -l

    That second command lists the drivers installed into ndiswrapper -- it should return nothing.



    I guess it depends on the...
  14. Poll: Re: HOWTO: Dell Inspiron E1505 Wireless (Broadcom 1390 WLAN)

    Are you using an external USB wireless NIC? If so, you'll need to find the drivers for that -- I don't think the ones linked in the how-to will work. If it's a Dell wireless NIC, I would imagine...
  15. Poll: Re: HOWTO: Dell Inspiron E1505 Wireless (Broadcom 1390 WLAN)

    The driver from Dell supports wep 64 & 128 in ascii, text, and passphrase. It also supports WPA and WPA2, and it's possible there are other derivatives supported as well. If you're having trouble...
  16. Poll: Re: HOWTO: Dell Inspiron E1505 Wireless (Broadcom 1390 WLAN)

    Happy to help. Please go to the original post in this thread and read the section about requesting help. Once you provide the necessary info, we can get started.
  17. Poll: Re: HOWTO: Dell Inspiron Wireless (Broadcom 1390 WLAN)

    Ah, yes. I share your ugh sentiment, too. I run 64 bit and it's really frustrating having to jump through hoops for some of my favourite apps (rainlendar, acroread, flash, etc).
  18. Poll: Re: HOWTO: Dell Inspiron Wireless (Broadcom 1390 WLAN)

    Not true! If you compile ndiswrapper yourself (instead of using the repositories), 64-bit works just fine!

    The how-to is a domino effect. If one step is out of place, the rest of the steps...
  19. Poll: Re: HOWTO: Dell Inspiron E1505 Wireless (Broadcom 1390 WLAN)

    It looks like you didn't blacklist the bcm43xx firmware. Did you try other methods before coming here? Did you make sure to do the blacklist step in the howto? Do a
    sudo cat...
  20. Poll: Re: HOWTO: Dell Inspiron E1505 Wireless (Broadcom 1390 WLAN)

    No problem. You see that entry called DRIVER? That's a directory. Go inside that directory, and you should find your file. i.e. cd DRIVER.
  21. Poll: Re: HOWTO: Dell Inspiron E1505 Wireless (Broadcom 1390 WLAN)

    Reboot, then open a terminal:



    sudo ndiswrapper -l
    sudo modprobe ndiswrapper
    sudo iwlist scanning
    dmesg

    Then come back here and post the results from the 3 sudo commands and the relevant...
  22. Poll: Re: HOWTO: Dell Inspiron E1505 Wireless (Broadcom 1390 WLAN)

    This could be a problem. I strongly recommend that you try this how-to based on a clean install. Using other methods always runs the risk that those methods do things to your system that you're not...
  23. Poll: Re: HOWTO: Dell Inspiron E1505 Wireless (Broadcom 1390 WLAN)

    Do a sudo modprobe ndiswrapper, then post back with the rows that it creates in dmesg and /var/log/syslog.
  24. Poll: Re: HOWTO: Dell Inspiron E1505 Wireless (Broadcom 1390 WLAN)

    That's your problem right there. You don't have a broadcom wireless card -- you have an Intel one. This how-to is for broadcom cards.

    However, the methods should still work, the only difference...
  25. Poll: Re: HOWTO: Dell Inspiron E1505 Wireless (Broadcom 1390 WLAN)

    Happy to help. But you need to tell me exactly what's wrong. Other than "I need some help getting wireless to work," you didn't indicate what the exact problem was. Are you getting an error...
