Re: Dell Latitude E6230 Wireless Issues
OK, here's what happened (and I'm sorry for taking so long to answer--was off yesterday):
Booted machine--did not connect--wifi icon just kept "scanning."
Entered first command--box comes up saying that wireless is disconnected.
Entered second command--machine connected to "Guest" nearly immediately.
Unchecked "enable wireless"--icon immediately turned to an "outline" of the wifi icon and machine was disconnected.
Re-checked "enable wireless" and the machine did NOT connect--icon just keeps "scanning." Although I can see "Guest" in the last of available APs, when I click it a box pops up that says "Guest--You are now disconnected" and the scanning continues.
Tried a reboot--same story. Icon just keeps "scanning." Just so it's clear--when I reboot if I simply enter:
The icon keeps scanning--no connection. I MUST enter the
FIRST and then enter the
sudo modprobe -r b43 ssb wl brcmfmac brcmsmac bcma
command for it to connect to the "Guest" AP. If I only enter one line or another--or enter them out of order--the machine will NOT connect to "Guest." BOTH lines must be entered...and in the same order.
If at any time I uncheck "Enable Wireless" the machine disconnects from the AP and will NOT connect again unless I re-open a term and re-enter the two modprobe commands.
Thanks for all your help friends!
