Donsony, next time please just post the link and a short excerpt from the page. Hm, then it could be something else entirely. I would suggest the user to check on Ciuffy’s post here.

At last I found a good how to for bcm43xx cards. Also I got my hardware present driver present, wich I didnt before. So i thought it was maybe because I had not turned wireless off and on, so I restarted PC. No connection at all, both eth1 and eth0 were deactivated, activated eth1, still not internet connection.

  • I end update up doing the same as a prior poster – that is, having to recall the commands from shell history to get it back in service.
  • We’ve been asking for this for years and we finally have it.
  • Currently managing it via KNetworkManager.

I have a 4318 and tried you guide with every permutation suggested in this thread. I could always see the available networks, but never connect. I tried it with Network Manager and without . I am guessing there are just some hardware the bcm43xx driver doesn’t work well with. Upgraded from Breezy, tried all day yesterday to get this to work following the guide.

I have followed this whole procedure but on step 19, once I choose the USB as drive nothing happens. The screen just flickers and goes back to the BIOS screen. This’ll take you to a troubleshoot screen like we saw in the section above. The only difference is you can use the keyboard and touchpad to make your selections, but not the touchscreen.

Seeing as how you’ve been successful, perhaps you wouldn’t mind giving me some directions on solving it, and getting up my wireless connection. So, one option to grab the right drivers is to connect the Linux device via a wired cable to the Internet.

You find the Driver Manager in the second column after selecting Administration in the first.

First of all, using an unsigned driver, especially a prominent networking driver, creates a security hole for malware to exploit. Also, the Secure Boot functionality enabled in the BIOS cannot work properly with unsigned drivers installed, if I am not mistaken. NVIDIA GeForce Experience is a powerful application that is especially designed to provide you with a means of having the best settings for your games as well as the latest drivers from NVIDIA.

They do have drivers that you can download. Including a maintained list of Broadcom hardware (Product Name plus PCI IDs – Vendor + Hardware ) and their requisite hardware drivers.

Thank you very much for your reply indeed. Oddly enough, after I got things working again I found similar notes in my old Gutsy installation memory joggers, but I forgot to look there first. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU. Several sleepless nights solved here. Wireless works fine on my WMP54GS card now thanks to you. I will probably have a chance to try another router sometime this week on campus. The card is a Linksys WPC45G and as far as I can find no errors, but maybe I’m not looking in the right place.
