I have installed Kubuntu Dapper on my HP Pavilion ze2308 laptop. I enabled the broadcom wifi by blacklisting the bcm43xx driver and using ndiswrapper with the windows driver instead. The only way i can get it to connect is by issuing
in the console.
I have edited the file /etc/network/interfaces and commented out eth0 and eth1, my wired and wireless connections, respectively.. Upon reboot, networkmanager detects both. It works fine for plugging and unplugging my wired connection. It even detects my wireless network properly.. But, when i try to connect, it gets to 28%, stalls, then eventually gives up...
I have read that other people are having similar problems, with all of them happening at 28%. But i have not found a solution yet..
Please advise as to how i can effectively use KnetworkManager.
I have this problem as well, Kubuntu Dapper on Acer Ferrari 3000, got ndiswrapper working and could see interface etc but Knetwork manager stalls at 28% I've also tried using the included bcm43xx module but to no avail.
I really need network manager cos dealing with WPA_supplicant directly is too much faff for the person I am putting the box together for.
Please can anyone even just point me in the right direction?
I had same problem, but now wireless works fine. I have Asus A6R laptop with Broadcom 4318. Instructions will be found ubuntuforums. Sorry can`t post direct link. I need 3 posts to made link. See my signature
I'm afraid to say I don't know exactly how I did it but I just got it working.
I think I played around with the open source bc43xx kernel drivers, failed with those and went back to the disappear. I would try playing with switching your wireless router between unencrypted and wpa, I think what happened was that when I switched it back to encrypted and tried to connect, at 28% it then asked me for the new passkey and this seemed to get it past whatever obstacle was holding it back and it worked from then on?!
I think you might need to make sure that your /etc/network/interfaces file only has the local interface in it as knetworkmanager uses a different system for managing what is available.
I'm new on this Forum. I have the same issue with my wireless card. Suse detects it but when I enter the info for the wireless router it would get stuck at 28% of the process.
If you have any solutions, please let us know!
