Post How do I find, load, use bcm4312 wireless card firmware?


Welcome to me. My first post. While old among the old, I am the newest of the new. Oh I do like this text screen. Others are not as user friendly.
I am a grandfather. First time I have referred to myself that way. Retired teacher - chemistry. Loaded Mint12, Lisa three days ago. Three days of stress and agony. Not my first Linux. Used Presto for a year - a Xandros Linux. Not well supported, but it worked VERY well.
Things have not gone that way with Lisa. Immediately I ran into trouble... wireless ... firmware missing. I wiped out Windows Vista (hateful OS) and loaded Mint12. Lucky enough to have the Broadcom wireless card that seems to have given a lot of new Lunux users trouble. I have found that I have the BCM4312. Have read a lot amid cursing. I find that where I lack expertise I make up for it with cursing. I am afraid to the statements I have found....
sudo apt-get install firmware-B43-installer
or any other statements. I am wary (at best) of using the terminal. I did manage to find my particular card and that it is supported by
lspci -vnn | grep 14e4
which returned
blah, blah, blah.... [14e4:4315]
which told me I have the BCM4312. Ta Dah!

Now, what?

I have other questions, if anyone can stop laughing long enough to offer to get frustrated helping another Newby.

Smile As all can see I don't know how to post once I have previewed

Feeling more like a newby every minute. Can't even find the 'post' icon.

I'll score my own thread - terrible

No, wireless not working. Still says 'firmware missing'. Running with long cable to router.

Really stymied. I know I have BCM4312. Referred to a lot in ubuntu forum.

Suggestions?

From the b43-fwcutter package:
It lists this resource to locate firmware.
http://www.linuxwireless.org/en/user...devicefirmware

Depending on your kernel version, Linux Mint may use a "staging" driver for some Broadcom devices instead of the b43 kernel driver.

Here is a debian wiki with instructions: http://wiki.debian.org/wl

You might try:
lsmod | grep b43 and see if it is loaded. If so, you are using the b43 driver.

Post the section on your wireless device from "sudo lspci -v". The last line should say: "Kernel Driver in use" which may settle the question on which driver Linux Mint uses.

Post the result of "uname -r" so we know which kernel version you have.

Good Luck.

Doesn't Mint offer you "Restricted Drivers" availability as you log in ?. Personally I would think the Broadcom STA driver would be a better option. Haven't tried it on Mint as I don't use Broadcom where I have the choice. STA works fine with Ubuntu though on a netbook I look after.

Great idea. How do I do it. I'm still learning that you don't 'run' a program you 'executec'' a 'script' ??

Backup does not exist in my neighborhood yet. Here in Newbyville, we can't even load all the repository from OSDiscs without handholding. everything I do here is trial and error, error, error.

Have read on...

http://linuxwireless.org/en/users/Drivers/b43

the following...

"In recent versions of Ubuntu and Debian, installing the firmware-b43-installer package will handle everything for you:

Toggle line numbers

1 sudo apt-get install firmware-b43-installer

You will be asked to automatically fetch and install the firmware into the right location. Again, you will need an internet connection. "

Not sure that this will help me. I assume that the fact that there is a line number assumes that I will be adding the 'sudo' statement.

As you can see, I am really 'newest of the new'...

Have read, on Broadcom site, "... Some distros (Ubuntu and Fedora at the least) already have a version of this driver in their repositories precompiled, tested and ready to go.
You just use the package manager to install the proper package. If
its available for your distro, this is usually an easier solution. See
the end of this document for further discussion..."

If this is the case, I may have it easier (this causes me to laugh - I still can't get all 10 repo disks loaded from OSD). If I can get going setting up from the repository (still and enigma) I may be home free.

One can only sigh and say, "... I am not afraid..."

Thus endeth Christmas Eve with the newest of the new...

The only error is that it should be a lower-case 'b' (linux terminal commands are case-sensitive). Also I recommend you refresh your package list with 'apt-get update' so you get the very latest:

Code:
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install firmware-b43-installer
Do yourself a favor and be mistrustful of any how-to/tutorial/advice that

1) is not from a trusted source such as the Linux Mint website
2) is not specific to your release: Mint 12 (don't follow tutorials for an older version of Mint)
3) is not specific to your exact Broadcom chipset [14e4:4315]

If you follow those 3 rules you should have an easy and pleasant experience with Mint.

As awesome as linuxquestions.org is, here's a link to the Mint forums:

Guess I am lucky after reading Snowpine's advice "...be mistrustful..." that rfkill list all
didn't give me trouble, since I did it even though I couldn't find it in my "Linux Pocket Guide" that covers Fedora Linux and I'm using LM12 (note I picked up abbreviation from some forum. Feel good about that)

Shall I be brave and try

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install firmware-b43-installer

Will that install the installer or install the firmware?

... 'link to Mint forums'

Have registered on LMForums, but I have so far found it hard to figure out how to post. LQ.org has an easier (for me) site. I shall try to bare my newby soul on LMForums soon.

Will also try

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install firmware-b43-installer

wish me luck..

Tried
sudo apt-get update
A lot of stuff happened.

Then ran
sudo apt-get install firmware-b43-installer
