Wireless dropping out - full signal - BCM4313

Postby tsdadam » Tue Jan 08, 2013 4:04 pm

My wireless is generally working pretty well, full signal, but under Mint the connection drops repeatedly.

Sometime's it automatically reconnects within a few seconds, sometimes it asks me to confirm the key (WPA2).

I'm using the built-in Broadcom BCM4313 on this laptop.

Here's the listing from lspci -vv

Code: Select all

02:00.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4313 802.11b/g/n Wireless LAN Controller (rev 01)
   Subsystem: Broadcom Corporation Device 0587
   Control: I/O- Mem+ BusMaster+ SpecCycle- MemWINV- VGASnoop- ParErr- Stepping- SERR- FastB2B- DisINTx-
   Status: Cap+ 66MHz- UDF- FastB2B- ParErr- DEVSEL=fast >TAbort- <TAbort- <MAbort- >SERR- <PERR- INTx-
   Latency: 0, Cache Line Size: 64 bytes
   Interrupt: pin A routed to IRQ 17
   Region 0: Memory at f0500000 (64-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=16K]
   Capabilities: <access denied>
   Kernel driver in use: wl
   Kernel modules: wl, bcma

Should I post anything more?

Have you seen this link for BCM43xx drivers? Let me know if it works for you!
Everyone is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing it is stupid.
