    I have no problem getting the card to find my routers but it WILL NOT connect to any of them. Open, WEK, WPA makes no difference, trying to connect to an OPEN router should be the easiest but that's a joke. Looking at the log files it tries to login no matter what and there is no easy way to disable security.

    I have tried just about every suggestion in these forums and nothing works.

    The wireless structure of Ubuntu has a long way to go before Windoz users will ever accept it.
    Please post the details requested in the first post, as well as "lshw -C network"

    Re: HowTo: Broadcom BCM43xx in 5 minutes with ndiswrapper/WPA for fresh installs

    Dell Vostro 1510 - Broadcom 4312.
    lspci -n | grep '14e4:43' says: 14e4:4315 (rev 01)

    Working with Ndiswrapper and first the XP-drivers directly from the DELL-website, and with wpa_supplicant I managed the connection to WPA and WPA2 with dhcp (WEP worked from the beginning).

    Bought a dlink 300 router for homeuse. Could connect only the first day without problems, the second day with a router - reset and from the third day on never more.

    Messing around a bit, trying the (Beta)-version of network-manager 0.7 with the same results.

    Then I got the idea to configure an static IP-reservation of my laptop in the wireless router .. AND IT WORKED, although my wireless-interface use dhcp !

    Restarting several times - wireless connection ok.

    Sure.. its not "the" solution, but it could help somebody with similar problems.

    Re: HowTo: Broadcom BCM43xx in 5 minutes with ndiswrapper/WPA for fresh installs

    okay so here is my problem...

    okay so i don't know if anybody here can help my issue but i have had problems with getting wireless internet to work with ubuntu 8.04 hardy heron.

    i recently upgraded from ubuntu 7.10 and am kindof trying to understand how wireless know works...since in 7.10 i used ndiswrapper i was kind of leaning towards doing that...so that is what i did..

    now to make the story fast i looked at many url's to find out about how to go about it...so i used this page to do it...which for step two pointed to the ubuntu wiki help page (aka the url address after this one)

    http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=766560

    https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Wi...f971ca757b2851

    so i had an issue with ssb always showing as the value for module = ssb, even after i did the sudo rmmod ssb!!! so i did fix #3 to have ndiswrapper ignore loading ssb, b44, b43, etc...


    these are the steps from the first url...
    the url list in this was the one where i got the hot fix for the bug where no matter what i did module =ssb and not ndiswrapper!!!

    don't worry about the fact that bcm4312 is what the guy based this off of...it is generic for all version of bcm43xx and step 2 is the only thing that differs between all the versions of bcm43xx!!
    Code:
    I used the following steps to enable my Broadcom Wireless BCM4312 (rev 02).
    
    Step 1 (run in terminal)
    
    echo 'blacklist bcm43xx' | sudo tee -a /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist
    sudo apt-get install ndiswrapper-utils-1.9
    mkdir ~/bcm43xx; cd ~/bcm43xx
    
    For Step 2, You can check your Broadcom wireless version with this command in terminal : "lspci | grep Broadcom Corporation",if your wireless device is different from BCM4312 (rev 02), please refer to the following link for this step and you can continue again with step 3 onwards:
    
    https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Wi...f971ca757b2851
    
    
    Step 2 (run in terminal)
    
    sudo apt-get install cabextract
    wget ftp://ftp.compaq.com/pub/softpaq/sp3...00/sp34152.exe
    cabextract sp34152.exe
    
    Step 3 (run in terminal)
    
    sudo ndiswrapper -i bcmwl5.inf
    ndiswrapper -l
    sudo depmod -a
    sudo modprobe ndiswrapper
    sudo cp /etc/network/interfaces /etc/network/interfaces.orig
    echo -e 'auto loniface lo inet loopbackn' | sudo tee /etc/network/interfaces
    sudo ndiswrapper -m
    echo 'ndiswrapper' | sudo tee -a /etc/modules
    echo 'ENABLED=0' | sudo tee -a /etc/default/wpasupplicant
    
    Step 4 (run in terminal)
    
    sudo aptitude remove b43-fwcutter
    
    Step 5 (run in terminal)
    
    sudo gedit /etc/init.d/wirelessfix.sh
    
    Step 6
    
    Paste the followings in the opened file(wirelessfix.sh)and make sure you save it before continuing Step 7
    
    #!/bin/bash
    modprobe -r b44
    modprobe -r b43
    modprobe -r b43legacy
    modprobe -r ssb
    modprobe -r ndiswrapper
    modprobe ndiswrapper
    modprobe b44
    
    Step 7 (run in terminal)
    
    Run this :
    
    cd /etc/init.d/ && sudo chmod 755 wirelessfix.sh
    
    Step 8 (run in terminal)
    
    finally run this:
    
    sudo update-rc.d wirelessfix.sh defaults
    
    Step 9
    
    Restart your machine and enjoy the freedom from those wires....

    after doing all the steps i still didn't have interent so i went through and ran some commands to see where i was...

    Code:
    adramalech@adramalech:~$ dmesg | grep ndiswrapper

    Okay, thanks for that.

    Now, please post the output of each the following:
    Code:
    ndiswrapper -l
    lsmod
    Then, issue the following, and copy/post your commands and the machine's response to all of the following.

    Code:
    sudo rmmod b43
    sudo rmmod b44
    sudo rmmod b43legacy
    sudo rmmod wl
    sudo rmmod ssb
    sudo rmmod ndiswrapper
    sudo modprobe ndiswrapper
    sudo modprobe ssb
    sudo modprobe b44
    
    lshw -C network
    Also, assuming this is the file that you "hot fixed," please paste in its contents: /etc/modprobe.d/ndiswrapper

    Finally, paste in the contents of: /etc/modprobe.d/ndiswrapper

    I know that's a lot of stuff, but it gives us a better chance of figuring this out in one shot.

    Thanks,
    Jamie

    Re: HowTo: Broadcom BCM43xx in 5 minutes with ndiswrapper/WPA for fresh installs

    Hi Jamie,

    I tried the steps in your guide, and it worked! The first time. So I restarted my computer to make sure it would work upon restarting, and - it doesn't. And not only that, but re-doing the instructions no longer works, either.

    I'm using a Studio 15 with a BCM4322. The output of lshw -C network is:

    *-network UNCLAIMED
    description: Network controller
    product: BCM4322 802.11a/b/g/n Wireless LAN Controller

    version: 01

    capabilities: bus_master cap_list
    configuration: latency=0


    That 'configuration' line used to read something else, when the wireless was working, but I don't remember what it was.

    Thanks for putting that guide together, FWIW.

    Smile Re: HowTo: Broadcom BCM43xx in 5 minutes with ndiswrapper/WPA for fresh installs

    i got my HP Pavilion tx2520ej + BCM4310 (14e4:4315) to work
    with Broadcom's wl driver and not with ndiswrapper.
    i tried MANY versions of windows drivers with ndiswrapper
    and none worked, lucky me.

    i got the wl sources from :
    http://www.broadcom.com/support/802.11/linux_sta.php

    and compiled the x64 bit version according to the README

    now it works

    here is some hardware info:
