About 1.)
Please give me the output of this shell command (you have to open a terminal to do this!):

Code: Select all

sudo lspci -n
This will spit out some columns and numbers. Please copy and paste that stuff and put it into a reply here. I will feed that output into a web form I happen to know and this will tell me if your card is even supported under Linux, and if so, which kernel module (= "driver" in Linux speak) needs to be used.

About 2.)
Sounds to me like you were trying to install a device driver for Windows?? Linux per default doesn't know *.sys files. Were you messing around with ndiswrapper? Please can you be specific and tell us what precisely step-by-step you were doing?

Well ... not exactly what I asked for but never mind. Did you use the forum search? Several people here got their bcm4xxx devices to work.

Hi Grammemo,

- On your computer, open this file with firefox: /usr/lib/linuxmint/mintWifi/index.html

- Look at the instructions written in that HTML file.

--> You've already found your PCI_ID : 14e4:4318 (rev 02).
--> There is no driver in mintWifi for this PCI_ID.
--> There are a lot of possible drivers in the list (see my previous message above).

Try all of them... if ndisgtk tells you "Hardware Present" then things should be ok.

PS: If the driver comes as an EXE, you can use "unzip" to decompress it and extract the INF and SYS files from it.

Clem

Thanks

Well, the one that says Hardware Present should work for you. Can you paste the result of "iwconfig" ?

Greetings Clem I have put system anew I try to put the driver. Whether a question it is possible to take for example configurations Wi Fi from Linuks Freespire? For example when I put Freespire in Live mode Wi Fi works well! Freespire too Debian there can be a configuration will work in Ubuntu?

Posted: Fri Feb 02, 2007 9:21 pm

Well it's just a matter of finding the right driver... for instance here, your card is recognized, maybe you just need to configure it manually with iwconfig or maybe that particular windows driver doesn't fully support it.. it's hard to say.

The best would be to find somebody with the same card and ask him how he got that solved. Any ideas anybody ?
