    Talking Wi-Fi on Lenovo s10-3t with Broadcom BCM4313 [14e4:4727] (rev 01)

    Lenovo put out a Netbook S10-3t, which is a tablet with a multi touch screen. Unfortunately, as of Ubuntu 10.4 Lucid Alpha 3, the Wi-Fi device is not enabled after installation of x86 Netbook

    The Wi-Fi device is Broadcom BCM4313 with pci code [14e4:4727], specification here:
    http://www.broadcom.com/products/Wir...utions/BCM4313

    There is an open source driver b43 that as of 2.6.32-15-generic does not support this device code as can be seen here:
    http://linuxwireless.org/en/users/Drivers/b43

    Broadcom provides a binary/proprietary driver that does work as can be seen here:
    http://www.broadcom.com/docs/linux_sta/README.txt

    SOLUTION
    The driver does not work due to a packaging problem. The procedure to fix it is:
    A. install bcmwl-kernel-source
    B. activate broadcom driver via restricted drivers

    here is a detailed link:

    Honestly I was looking for it from quite long. I didn't badly need it but yeah of course I was looking for it to fulfil my needs. And I am happy that finally I got it.

    I still get "No proprietary drivers are in use on this system".

    I have a Lenovo s10-3t as well.

    Try to do what's written in the README file from the Broadcom website, it worked for me.

    First download the latest drivers here :
    http://www.broadcom.com/support/802.11/linux_sta.php

    Then launch the Terminal and do the following steps :
    - apt-get install build-essential linux-headers-generic
    - apt-get build-dep linux
    Then go to the directory where you downloaded the drivers then :
    - mkdir hybrid_wl
    - cd hybrid_wl
    - tar xzf ../hybrid-portsrc.tar
    - make
    Now you should have a file called "wl.ko".
    - rmmod wl
    - mv <path-to-prev-driver>/wl.ko <path-to-prev-driver>/wl.ko.orig
    - cp wl.ko <path-to-prev-driver>/wl.ko
    Where <path-to-prev-driver> is /lib/modules/<kernel-version>/kernel/net/wireless.
    Then add some default drivers to blacklist :
    - rmmod b43
    - rmmod ssb
    - echo "blacklist ssb" >> /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf
    - echo "blacklist b43" >> /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf
    Finally load drivers :
    - cd <path-to-prev-driver>
    - modprobe lib80211
    - insmod wl.ko
    - modprobe wl
    Now, your Wi-Fi should work.

    Same BCM4313 chipset found in the new HP Mini 210 with Intel NM10 chipset (1.86GHz Atom N475).

    Same instructions to install the wifi driver. Tested working with WPA2 access point.

    I have a HP Mini 210 also. To get wifi working I ran
    Code:
    apt-cache search bcmwl
    This returned two packages.
    Code:
    bcmwl-modaliases
    bcmwl-kernel-source
    After installing the kernel source, and giving it a reboot, wifi worked without any issues.

    Thanks,

    FIXED!! FIXES ISSUES WITH BCM 4313 & 4312 if you run Ubuntu 10.10 and are on 2.6.35-24 gen

    if you updated to kernel 2.6.35.-24 gen
    please revert to any version prior to this...
    then uninstall the bcmwl-kernel-source package
    and install the b43-fwcutter package
    and install the firmware-b43-lpphy-installer package
    then reboot.
    confirmed by 5 ppl this works.

    command as follows below

    sudo apt-get remove bcmwl-kernel-source
    sudo apt-get install b43-fwcutter firmware-b43-lpphy-installer
    sudo reboot
    ...
    if this doesn't work for you please let me know... also if this works
    with anything other then these two chipsets please let me know... thanx
    If someone says it can't be done, then they haven't tried Linux yet!
