    Hi, that happens a lot during a power loss, it may not even have anything to do with the commands you were running at the time, power loss causes file corruption and bad sectors on the hard drive.

    Thank you praseodym.

    After it intalls disconnect your wired connection and restart your computer.

    Re: Ubuntu 11.10 no wireless

    Hi everyone,
    I [like a few people here] recently downloaded/installed ubuntu 10.11 and since I am having a few problems with my wireless connection.
    I was hoping someone here mght be able help me or point me into the right direction to resolve this issue. I've attached a notepad with my results from the following commands:
    Code:
    sudo lshw -C network
    Code:
    lspci -nnk | grep -iA2 net
    Code:
    iwconfig
    Code:
    rfkill list all
    Code:
    lsmod
    Code:
    sudo cat /var/log/syslog | grep -e b43 -e wl -e firmware -e wlan0 | tail -n35
    Code:
    sudo apt-get purge bcmwl-kernel-source broadcom-sta-common broadcom-sta-source
    Then run this command and watch for errors.
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install b43-fwcutter firmware-b43-installer
    After it intalls disconnect your wired connection and restart your computer.

    I have also downloaded the zip file [on page 2 of this thread] which consisted on the b43 file. I carried out the commands attached, but again no luck.
    I've tried rebooting many times
    Any help would be greatly appricated.
    thanks,
    thegant

    Re: Ubuntu 11.10 no wireless

    Hi thegant,

    the module "wl" from the STA driver is still loaded:

    Code:
    sudo modprobe -rfv wl
    sudo modprobe -v b43
    Check:
    Code:
    iwconfig
    dmesg | grep b43
    sudo iwlist scan
    rfkill list
    iwlist chan
    Is it a Dell laptop?

    Re: Ubuntu 11.10 no wireless

    Hi, did you have a connection to the internet when you ran the purge command and the install command?

    This should get you going but you will need to be hard wired to the internet first.
    Code:
    sudo apt-get purge bcmwl-kernel-source broadcom-sta-common broadcom-sta-source
    Code:
    sudo apt-get purge firmware-b43-lpphy-installer
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install b43-fwcutter firmware-b43-installer
    Reboot and it should be working.
    thank you

    Hi wildmanne39,
    thanks for your quick reply also. You were right, I wasnt connected to the internet. But the command that praseodym supplied worked before I got to yours.
    Thanks a million - youre both very good to help.
    Best regards,
    thegant

    i use the method above, and that resolve my issue, but some update from above.
    the package "firmware-b43-installer " changed to "firmware-b43-lpphy-installer", the "lpphy" is low power.
    thanks again.

    computer setting [Dell inspiron, broadcom 4312 wireless], for reference.

    Re: Ubuntu 11.10 no wireless

    My HP dv9000 worked with the b43 driver and not the bcmwl driver. I have a Broadcom BCM4311 [14e4:4311].

    Had to make sure I uninstalled the bcmwl driver for the wireless card to work.

    Thanks
