    Re: HOWTO: Broadcom 4318 Wireless Cards

    The Edgy 64-bit version is broken. I think what is happening is it is removing my ndiswrapper and then not installing it again. I should be able to do it manually, but I wanted to report the problem. My log is attached as a txt file in case you want to go over it.

    Re: HOWTO: Broadcom 4318 Wireless Cards

    So i was able to get the wireless light on my Presario V2000 to finally light up, however i am still unable to connect wirelessly.

    Code:
    limone@lappy:~$ ndiswrapper -l
    Installed drivers:
    bcmwl5          driver installed, hardware present 
    limone@lappy:~$ sudo iwconfig eth1
    eth1      IEEE 802.11g  ESSID:off/any  
              Mode:Managed  Frequency:2.462 GHz  Access Point: Not-Associated   
              Bit Rate:54 Mb/s   Tx-Power:25 dBm   
              RTS thr:2347 B   Fragment thr:2346 B   
              Encryption key:XXXX-XXXX-XX   Security mode:restricted
              Power Management:off
              Link Quality:0  Signal level:0  Noise level:0
              Rx invalid nwid:0  Rx invalid crypt:0  Rx invalid frag:0
              Tx excessive retries:0  Invalid misc:0   Missed beacon:0
    I am able to scan using "sudo iwlist scan"
    the scan gives me 9 or 10 different wireless networks to connect to, but if i try to connect to them, nothing happens.

    @Freestyle Skater: Try it with the 2.6.17-7-generic kernel instead of the 2.6.17-10-generic...it never works with 2.6.17-10-generic. If you are unsure how to do this, just ask

    So ndiswrapper does not work in the Edgy's release kernel, 2.6.17-10?
    How can I switch to 2.6.17-7 where it works, right?

    Re: HOWTO: Broadcom 4318 Wireless Cards

    Hello!

    I have an Acer Aspire 5024 (AMD 64) and have installed the Dapper version of Ubuntu (I'm quite a newby with Linux). The thing is I did manage to get my wireless connection work thanks to this thread, using "acer_acpi" and the "ndiswrapper" package, but every time I turn my laptop off, the acer_acpi module is not loaded by the kernel the next time I power it on. So, I just made a script that I can run manualy after loading the system in order to activate the wireless again; it's something like this:

    #!/bin/bash
    sudo modprobe acer_acpi
    sudo chmod 777 /proc/acpi/acer/wireless
    sudo echo "enabled: 1" > /proc/acpi/acer/wireless

    The thing is I would really like this to be automatically done at startup, but I haven't manage to do this so far. If anyone can tell me how, or give another solution, I would be greatful.

    Re: HOWTO: Broadcom 4318 Wireless Cards

    Nice one! Installed Edgy x86_64 45 minutes ago on my HP dv5046ea with the bcm4318 card and running 2.6.17-10-generic. Tried getting wireless to work the way I did in Dapper ie; blacklisting the bcm43xx driver that ships with Ubuntu, installing ndiswrapper followed by the 64 bit bcmwl5 driver........no joy. Downloaded the script and here I am, writing this with a wireless connection. Simple and painless! Thanks!

The thing is I did manage to get my wireless connection work thanks to this thread, using "acer_acpi" and the "ndiswrapper" package, but every time I turn my laptop off, the acer_acpi module is not loaded by the kernel the next time I power it on. So, I just made a script that I can run manualy after loading the system in order to activate the wireless again; it's something like this:

    #!/bin/bash
    sudo modprobe acer_acpi
    sudo chmod 777 /proc/acpi/acer/wireless
    sudo echo "enabled: 1" > /proc/acpi/acer/wireless

    The thing is I would really like this to be automatically done at startup, but I haven't manage to do this so far. If anyone can tell me how, or give another solution, I would be greatful.
    do the following to make the module load on startup:
    Code:
    echo "acer_acpi" >> /etc/modules
    I don't know why you have to do this:
    Code:
    sudo chmod 777 /proc/acpi/acer/wireless
    sudo echo "enabled: 1" > /proc/acpi/acer/wireless
    ...so if that doesn't work just add the script to your startup programs in your gnome session.

    you were lucky, did not work for me yet... i think ndiswrapper does not work in a new edgy install... and i can not compile the one this post speaks of... will have to get a deb...
