Wireless broadcom woes


Hi
Not a total Linux noob but it's been a while.

I've just installed Ubuntu 7.04 using Wubi (HDD wont partition) on a HP DV5215us with XP. US robotics router.

It's working sweet and would like to make it the default boot option if I can just get the wireless working.

I've found he tut here
http://www.linuxquestions.org/linux/...WPA_Encryption
and have tried it a couple of times but no joy.

I hope someone can help me walk through it.
lspci give a load of info including this

downloaded and extracted bcm43xx-fwcutter-006.tar.bz2

downloaded the drver from here
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/s...184207&lang=en

===========
Ok so far
===========

next not sure what directory it should be, or if it matters, but i put the extracted folder in
/home/dieu/wireless

contents now
bcm43xx-fwcutter-006 sp33008.exe
( .exe is the windows driver)

CD'd to bcm43xx-fwcutter-006
typed make

and got a ton of errors eg

give the output

I usually use ndiswrapper...

I've always found it to be a lot easier to work with, so I'm not sure how to go about it with fwcutter. If you want a quick walkthrough with ndiswrapper, I might be able to swing that, though.

That'd be great thanks. I'm certainly not tied to any one method, I just want to get the wireless working.

I'm in US mountain time zone and will be home to continue this evening, in the meantime is there a good place to start reading about the ndiswrapper method?

@SyCo123,

You're mixing up the instructions from two drivers. Ndiswrapper requires itself and a Windows driver and nothing else. The bcm43xx driver requires firmware you create with fwcutter. The 4318 chipset you've got doesn't work very well with bcm43xx, so I would suggest that you use ndiswrapper. That means you need to do two things:

1) Visit the ndiswrapper wiki (see my sig for the link). They have excellent installation instructions there.

2) You need to blacklist the bcm43xx driver by adding the line blacklist bcm43xx to your /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist file. That prevents bcm43xx from being loaded at boot. The reason you need to do this is that bcm43xx and ndiswrapper can't be loaded at the same time. They will interfere with each other.

What he said.

It's not really that complicated, you just have to make sure you have the right firmware - you have to get firmware for the right chipset.

lspci -n should tell you what chipset you're using like this;

Example on my laptop, lspci alone gives me this output -- 02:03.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4318 [AirForce One 54g] 802.11g Wireless LAN Controller (rev 02)

lspci -n gives me this output for the above card;

02:03.0 0280: 14e4:4318 (rev 02)

The second column is the PCI ID. That's the chipset on this card (14e4:4318).

Uh, not really. He is using ndiswrapper, in which case firmware never enters the picture. There are two drivers for this chipset, he needs to keep them straight, and not doing so leads to trouble.

Yeah, and he already posted his lspci output. We know he's got a 4318, which means he should probably use ndiswrapper.

I think i installed ndiswrapper ok. Only way i know how to check is with locate, is there another way?

dieu@ubuntu:~/Desktop/ndiswrapper-1.44$ locate ndiswrapper
/home/dieu/Desktop/ndiswrapper_setup
/usr/src/linux-headers-2.6.20-15/ubuntu/misc/ndiswrapper

dieu@ubuntu:~/Desktop/ndiswrapper-1.44$

A search for the windows driver of the 'list' here
http://ndiswrapper.sourceforge.net/
returns no results even though this pci id is all over google

It's even the same pci id in the tut i stumbled onto on this site

If you don't know the make/model of your wireless card, then you probably can use the drivers that came with your computer, or you can check the HP site for drivers.

I've found this sp33008.exe but as it a .exe I'm not sure if this is what I'm after?

That certainly has the right look and feel to it. I'd give it a go.

A lot of .exe archives are self-extracting zip files, and the Linux unzip command frequently can handle them. So try unzip sp33008.exe and see what happens. If it doesn't work, you're going to need to extract this on a Windows box and copy the drivers to someplace Linux can reach them.

So I've found the drivers I think. However I had an error that ndiswrapper wasnt installed so i've uninstalled and am trying to install again but now I have an error with loadndisdriver.

Similar error here
http://forums.techguy.org/unix-linux...ke-i-need.html

But a the end of whats below then you'll see locate and find turned up nothing so stuck again.\

Here's the whole ndiswrapper install printout following the instructions in the wiki.

found this command

sudo apt-get install build-essential

It will install missing libraries (and gcc)

another go at installing appears to have worked

So will continue trying with ndiswrapper wiki instructions and will let you know how it goes!

Look like I'm getting somewhere!!

Code:
simon@ubuntu:~$ ndiswrapper -l
bcmwl5 : driver installed
        device (14E4:4318) present (alternate driver: bcm43xx)
simon@ubuntu:~$
I've rebooted but no wireless light.
System>Administration>Network has no mention of a wireless connection either.
