643 legacy-phy0 Broadcom 4301 WLAN Found

Postby itsmeagainS on Sat Oct 04, 2008 6:35 am

I have been running Daryna without problem for 6 months, now I wish to try Elysse. When I boot from the live CD the PC hangs at the line that reads '6431 legacy-phy0: Broad com 4301 WLAN Found' and cannot proceed. The CD was burnt after checking the Checksum. I guess when Elysse is loading it cannot cope with my Linksys wireless card. Is there any way I can get over this problem without having to remove the wireless card?

This beats me but there has been a similar problem with other Broadcom cards

Unfortunately Broadcom cards are common and cumbersome
If it was possible to blacklist b43legacy in the live CD it would boot
I'll come back to you

Unfortunately not without making a new ISO... You can't use boot options for this
So remove/turn off the wifi card and install - reboot the install to check it works
Then run this command in a terminal
Code: Select all
echo "blacklist b43legacy" | sudo tee -a /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist

Now insert/turn on the card and hopefully the computer boots
Then you have to find a way to get it working - and I hope the wifi wiki does it
