    Re: Problem installing the b43 driver

    filip@Username:~$ sudo modprobe -r b43
    [sudo] password for filip:
    filip@Username:~$ sudo modprobe b43 pio=1
    filip@Username:~$

    What happened? Terminal didn't give me any ''answer''.
    It did give you an answer. When the terminal simply returns to the prompt, that means, roughly, 'command executed and there are no errors or warnings to report.' That's exactly what we hoped for! However, the larger thing we hoped for, that your wireless would spring to life, did not occur. We know, therefor, that the driver b43 and its firmware is not the correct fix for your Broadcom Corporation BCM4321 802.11b/g/n [14e4:4329]. We will try another fix.

    With a working wired ethernet connection, copy and paste these commands, each one at a time:
    Code:
    wget http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/restricted/b/bcmwl/bcmwl-kernel-source_5.100.82.112+bdcom-0ubuntu3_amd64.deb
    sudo dpkg -i bcmwl*.deb
    Detach the ethernet, reboot and give us your report.

    @Filip_Lundberg, broadcom prepared a driver for this and it can be found here http://www.broadcom.com/support/802.11/linux_sta.php. Follow the instructions in README.txt. You will need to download the source code package and compile them.

    However, the most recent STA driver doesn't work so well with kernel version 3.8 which is what is included in 12.04.3. That's why I suggested, based on many similar cases, the next older version.

    Looks good to me. Now what is the result of:
    Code:
    sudo modprobe wl
    iwconfig
    sudo iwlist eth1 scan

    @bishop_
    I had the STA driver before, but I had a lot of problems with it so that's why I want the b43 instead

    First command:

    filip@Username:~$ sudo modprobe wl
    [sudo] password for filip:
    filip@Username:~$

    After the first command, I got wireless connection. Thank you so much for the help But what did that command really do? Where can I see that is the b43 driver I'm using now?

    After being on the computer for a whole, I receive a kernel panic. Should I send you a photo on the kernel panic?
