Cannot create Access Point on Ubuntu 14.04 [Wireless card BCM4352]


I am unable to create wireless access point on my Ubuntu 14.04. I have BCM4352 wireless card.

on running command iw list , I find that AP is not listed on supported interface modes.

How can I get supported drivers to make AP? What should I do?

Download the Broadcom Drivers from here (That should get you somewhere):
https://www.broadcom.com/support/802.11/linux_sta.php
(I use them too)
Putting it to boot can cause it not to lanuch at a point.You can use this scipt to get the drivers to work (run as root):
Quote:
#!/bin/bash
#be in the driver directory and make sure its built.Also,replace wlp2s0 with your wifi interface.Run ifconfig to find out
rmmod b43
rmmod brcmsmac
rmmod ssb
rmmod bmca
rmmod wl
modprobe lib80211
modprobe cfg80211
insmod wl.ko
sleep 10s

Hi,

I installed the 64bit driver from the web link.

When I execute that scrip I get error

Quote:
sudo sh driver.sh
rmmod: ERROR: Module b43 is not currently loaded
rmmod: ERROR: Module brcmsmac is not currently loaded
rmmod: ERROR: Module ssb is not currently loaded
rmmod: ERROR: Module bmca is not currently loaded
rmmod: ERROR: Module wlan0 is not currently loaded
insmod: ERROR: could not insert module wl.ko: File exists

You will need to DELETE or existing driver and replace it with this one.
