    Re: HOWTO: Broadcom 4318 Wireless Cards

    yes, dhclient seems to work, I just need to tell it to specifically get one for eth1. this works unsecured.

    I am not using a network manager, since in a previous post you suggested removing wifi-radar.

    I don't know the syntax for passing parameters iwconfig, like I tried this:

    dasgoat@Ubuntu-laptop:~$ sudo iwconfig eth1 key 1472583690
    dasgoat@Ubuntu-laptop:~$

    does that mean it took it? would I then do sudo iwconfig eth1 enc open ?

    This is so frustrating being so close and so far.

    Is there a specific network manager I should be using? since I had nothing else to do I reloaded wifi-radar again, created a profile, and connected. radar says I am connected ip(none)

    sudo dhclient eth1 just times out with out getting an ip.

    Re: HOWTO: Broadcom 4318 Wireless Cards - Help Please

    Hi I recently put ubuntu on my compaq v2000z laptop and tried your guide. It almost worked (if the LED light turning on is any indication) but network manager won't even list my wireless connection, only my wired. Here are the outputs, any help would be appreciated.

    OK.

    If you are going to be using an encryption key, I would recommend you use wifi-radar to manage your connection, because nm-applet and the built in network manager aren't very good at network keys (i.e. they make you type them in when you want to connect)...but wifi-radar is good with them.

    If you don't wanna try wifi-radar, you can do iwconfig eth1 key XXXXXXXXXX (where XXXXX... is your network key) and then run dhclient. That should get you connected, at least. You will have to sudo both of those.

    Have you tried any other attempts at making your wifi card work?

    Red face Re: HOWTO: Broadcom 4318 Wireless Cards

    Oh, yes! I have tried everything i could think of and tried most peoples suggestions here, specifically everything you have suggested compwiz18.

    I think I might have just found the missing peice of information i need to give you. I was reading back on page 8 where some one couldn't find Network Manager and I did the command line to launch it. it gave me a second icon up at the top right that showed my wired connection. this tells me that a) i have network manager and/or netork-manager-gnome installed properly and b)network manager is not seeing my wireless card because it doesn't give me a wireless connection icon to adjust.

    So, I unistalled wifi-radar, removed all security, went to system > administration > networking and removed all keys. rebooted, no help, hard shutdown and rebooted, wireless unsecured works.

    BUT! I still do not get an icon in the upper right showing my wireless network, just my diconnected wired and lo. So I can't go there and adjust my settings. Surely this is not right. If I am posting to you wirelessly now (nakid) then there should be an icon right? Because system> administration> networking is just not doing anything but hosing up my system.

    Please compwiz18, I'm so close. I know you are on Japan time, but i hope you see this.

    Re: HOWTO: Broadcom 4318 Wireless Cards

    one last thing, I haven't seen anyone address this, but does the basic set up in system > administration > networking use Open or Shared? neither has worked for me, but I would like to know so that I can change the other three wireless devices on my network to the right one so that I don't have to disconnect them all during testing.

    Thanks!

    I don't know...

    Did you try the bcm43xx-fwcutter method at all?

    Re: HOWTO: Broadcom 4318 Wireless Cards

    Hi again, so I've tried using wifi radar and I'm a little closer. I can easily connect to networks without WEP encryption, and wifi-radar can see my network when I list it, but after entering my WEP information it still doesn't work (can't get an IP address). I've trying connecting using the the terminal but that doesn't work either (if there is a WEP). Am I missing something basic? I have my WEP in hexadecimal - might that have something to do with it? Normally I'd just give up and not use a WEP at home but still need to able to use a WEP at school. Thanks for any help, you've almost got me all the way there.

    Re: HOWTO: Broadcom 4318 Wireless Cards

    Hi Folks,

    I did end up finding the problem for my setup. After searching this thread (again) it seems no one else has posted anything about this, so I will post here in the hope someone finds it useful. This is a follow-up to items #378 and #383 in this thread.

    My problem can be summarised as: the encryption mode for my WEP needs to be set as "open", not "restricted". There does not appear to be any option for this in the network manager, so it must be done in the /etc/network/interfaces file. The interfaces file for my card now looks like:
    iface wlan0 inet dhcp
    wireless-essid Starfleet
    wireless-key open XXXXXXXXXX

    I discovered this after reading the troubleshooting page on the ndiswrapper homepage. It seems that if you get to the point like me where you can see basestations, using "sudo iwlist scan", then you're only an encryption key away from being done. The problem I described below is symptomatic of this: if you can't set your essid, but you can detect your basestation, then it is almost certainly an encryption key problem. On the command line try:
    sudo iwconfig wlan0 key open XXXXXXXXXX
    sudo iwconfig wlan0 essid <your-essid>
    then
    sudo iwconfig
    to see if it worked. Good luck!

    Cheers,
    Randalll.

    I have just now used your drivers with ndiswrapper.
    ndiswrapper -l gives:
    Installed ndis drivers:
    bcmwl5 driver present, hardware present

    After modprobe-ing ndiswrapper, the nice little blue wireless light comes on on the keyboard. When I enable the connection in the network settings, I can do iwlist scan and it sees 3 stations, including my one called "Starfleet".
    wlan0 Scan completed :
    Cell 01 - Address: 00:12:0E:41:93:27

    iwconfig gives the following:

    However, when I try, either throught the network manager, or on the command line, to assign the essid to "Starfleet" and get an ip address through dhcp, the dhcpclient times out. Attempts to change the essid do nothing although changing the frequency, e.g. using:
    sudo iwconfig wlan0 channel 6
    does work.

    Originally I was suspecting that I had caused some confusion between interface definitions maintained by gnome vs /etc/network/interfaces, but given that I can't manually change the essid of the card, there seems to be a deeper problem.

    Cheers,
    Randall.
