Post by eohman » Mon Dec 25, 2006 11:58 pm

Greetings,

Wireless continues to not work on Linux. I want to believe that Microsoft doesn't have a corner on the Market - however, when it is this difficult for a n MCSE or like to get this stuff working, well, I don't suspect the general public cutting over to this OS any time soon.

My Iwconfig and lspci information is shown below... what can i do to get this stuff working?

"not working" is quite a broad term. Can you please be more specific?

If you copy and paste those lines into this web page: http://kmuto.jp/debian/hcl/
... you then get the information that the driver bcm43xx should work. Did you ever try to load that driver? You may want to check the project's homepage: http://bcm43xx.berlios.de/

Don't blame Linux, blame the manufacturers! If they released the specifications then people who know how to improve the Linux kernel would write device drivers ... But if a manufacturing company insists on keeping everything "top secret" then there is very little Linux enthusiasts can do.

The only other thing I can suggest to you is to try a different Linux distribution (sorry guys!). Mandriva 2007 and OpenSUSE 10.2 have very very good hardware detection and are easy to configure (I tried both recently). You could try if your WiFi card works there ...

De bcm43xx module need the firmware.

Download the firmware :

http://www.essetee.be/downloads/bcm-firmware.tar.bz2

Unpack it in your home dir ( tar xjvf bcm-firmware.tar.bz2 )

Then copy the files from the directory broadcom-wireless-firmware to /lib/firmware.

cd broadcom-wireless-firmware
sudo cp * /lib/firmware/

Then :

sudo rmmod bcm43xx
sudo modprobe bcm43xx

Then your network card will work.

When you do dmesg | grep bcm, then ypu will see that the firmware is missing :)

essetee, thanks a bunch! That sorted my wireless connection out. It connects on eth1. I had also to have both Wireless and Wired boxes checked (don't understand that). Anyway, Wireless working great now!

Greetings - I have installed LinuxMint Bea and Bianca on my Toshiba LT with an Intel 2100 Wireless card which it picks up immediately. This is an AWESOME distro.

Thanks everyone!

I don't understand why I not find my wireless signal. On a laptop Asus F3F with a Intel wireless card, I don't have this problem.

Please, can you help me ? :)

I had so many issues on another laptop with the card in it that in ubuntu never got a signal. with Bea I did get a 100% strength signal but it could never find the ip address. I configured it every possible way and still nothing after 15 hrs a day for many days I sent the new crappy computer back and will be getting a new linuc laptop on Tuesday. Hopefully this will work a whole lot better.

But I too was very frsutrated and burnt out trying to invest so much time to get this to work.

all I can so is Go Figure.


I can only empathize with you. But with the help of Hairy_Palms we at least got the signal....
