I'm trying to get my wireless connection up and running.
The output from lspci on Ubuntu gives BCM4310 (it works here), while on Slackware it was BCM4312.
This is what I've tried:
Copied bcmwl5.inf and bcmwl5.sys from my windows partition.
Downloaded the latest ndiswrapper.
tar -xvzf ndiswrapper
Added "blacklist bcm43xx" to /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist
ndiswrapper -i /something/bcmwl5.inf
ndiswrapper -l said that both driver and device was present.
Tried both "alias eth1 ndiswrapper" and "alias wlan0 ndiswrapper" (not at the same time) in /etc/modprobe.d/ndiswrapper
This didn't work.
ndiswrapper -e bcmwl5
Changed /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist to
Downloaded wl_apsta-126.96.36.199.o and bcm43xx-fwcutter.
tar -jxvf bcm43xx-fwcutter.tar.bzip2 (or something like that
make installfw (gives an error: Missing file)
cd directory where the .o file is.
bcm43xx-fwcutter -w /lib/firmware wl_apsta-188.8.131.52.o
eth1 doesn't show up in any case.
Would really appreciate help with this one.
modprobe ndiswrapper gives:
FATAL: Module ndiswrapper not found
