Slack64 13 (fresh) Broadcom 4312 no wlan
 
Hi.
I've already red all posts about wireless on slack on this forum, but they could not helped me (I'm an intermediate linux user).

I have a fresh slack64 install on my Dell Inspiron 15:
Code:

uname -r -> 2.6.29.6
Code:

ifconfig -a
eth0      Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr 00:23:ae:27:e1:1d
          inet addr:192.168.1.101  Bcast:255.255.255.255  Mask:255.255.255.0
          UP BROADCAST RUNNING MULTICAST  MTU:576  Metric:1
          RX packets:3698 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
          TX packets:3884 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
          collisions:0 txqueuelen:1000

          RX bytes:480 (480.0 B)  TX bytes:480 (480.0 B)

Code:

lspci
...
0c:00.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4312 802.11b/g (rev 01)

Code:

iwconfig
lo        no wireless extensions.

eth0      no wireless extensions.

No error related to wifi neither in /var/log/dmesg nor /var/log/messages.

I've read http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...m-4312-793674/ but no driver was loaded

Few days ago I had Ubuntu Jaunty on same laptop and wireles was ok.

Any help/tip will be great.
Thanks in advance.
Best regards.

Did you try the broadcom sta driver mentioned in the other thread?
http://slackbuilds.org/repository/13.../broadcom-sta/

Also, can you give the output of:
Code:

lspci -vnn | grep 14e4
EDIT:
I see this is your first post. Welcome to linuxquestions :)

You will need to build b43 and broadcom PHY as Kernel MODULES (<M> not <*>) then use fwcutter from slackbuilds to install the binary driver.

The 14e4:4312 is supported by the b43 driver and firmware.
The 14e4:4315 is not until 2.6.32, and need the wl driver./

lspci -vnn | grep -i broad
does the trick (displays it)

mattca had a tread about it a while back..

i have the bcm 4312 14e14:4315 and the broadcom-sta slackbuild.
goodluck

This is weird, but I followed the instructions on that web and I finally installed wireless driver. A few days ago, I've compiled "official" driver from Broadcom, and that gave me an error when tried to install it (that's why I posted here), but this one not.
Now, I must connect using WPA2 ... this is other subject.
