Sometimes typing in the terminal can get overwhelming or even redundant if you have been at at task for days. I know; I have done it-
Try this; Slitaz:

1. Open the terminal as root-
Put in your password

2. Than type 'ifconfig wlan0 up'
Than all of that output will display and you'll be at your prompt again with the # at the end.

3. Than type 'ifconfig -a'
Than all of that output will display.

4. Copy all of that output.

5. Go up to the # sign (within your Reply to Thread) which is next to the little quote icon (that looks like a piece of paper) and click on the (#) sign.
When you click on that # sign you will get this:
"[CODE] [CODE]" and your cursor will be in between those brackets.

6. While your cursor is flashing in between those bracket's hit the ENTER button 'one time' and it will move those code tags apart.The first code will be on a line of it's own and the second the next line down.

7. Left click right next to the bracket(on the first line) on the code tag's bracket.Than right click and paste.

This way all of your terminal output will be in the code tag's.
Hope that helps:-

HI,

I am sure that is what I just did in the preceding post.

Thanks,

Hi,

the output from ifconfig shows the device, but from what I understand slitz does not come with the required firmware by default. Fortunately it seems they do provide very nice documentation, including how to install the firmware all the way through to getting on a network with wpa.

http://doc.slitaz.org/en:guides:wifi-easy

If you have not done so already please follow those instructions. If you have done this already can you please tell us at what point following those instructions the problem appears.

After

Code:
# modprobe b43
Do a

Code:
$ dmesg
And it should list things like what firmware version was loaded. Or if it had issues.

"ifconfig -a" shows your network devices and their names. Without the "-a" it shows only up devices. "iwconfig" which is very old school should show your wireless devices out of your list of network devices. It's not always called wlan0. There's newer wireless CLI methods like "iw", that I'm not that familiar with.

I have a couple b43 wireless devices, and, well, they're a bit quirky. But I'm on quite old computers. On one laptop I have to actually revert the firmware to the version that comes with debian squeeze for any sort of ease / reliability. Version 420-ish, I can get the version 666 to work, but it's not any picnic.

One quirk actually requires me to reset the essid after I've launched dhclient to get a lease. For some reason the essid resets / blanks when dhclient is launched. Although in my case there's a br0 interface via bridge-utils in play.

Another quirk is having to offload the b43 module and reload it after a failed attempt.

Code:
# ifconfig wlan0 down
# modprobe -r b43
# modprobe b43
# ifconfig wlan0 up
Just because there is a driver associated with your device. Doesn't mean it's all roses using that driver. For the longest time I found ndiswrapper a more reliable solution. Because of various quirks like connection speeds. But sometimes it's just too much hassle to setup and keep in sync ndiswrapper.

Strange you're getting a message wlan0 doesn't exist, Usually if the interface is shown with the ifconfig command it is visible and accessible to the system although that doesn't mean it will function correctly.
Admittedly I'm not anywhere near a knowledgeable as many on this forum so what I suggest may do nothing but certainly won't hurt to try.
first edit /etc/network.conf and change the default interface from

INTERFACE="eth0"
to
INTERFACE="wlan0"

Reboot and attempt to connect if it doesn't work run

ifconfig eth0 down
then
ifconfig wlan0 up

and try again.

I know this is repetitious and probably won't work but anything is worth a try. If it fails to connect you can change the /etc/network.conf file back to the original.

Have you seen this?
It sounds very much like the issue you are having.

http://forum.slitaz.org/topic/wlan-c...ant#post-22570

His complaint wasn't exactly the same as yours but his solution sounds promising.

I sort of skimmed through this thread, so forgive me if someone already asked this. I used to have a BCM4312 it was the biggest pain in the ass to get working on Slackware.

This page should walk you through it. According this you either should use fw-cutter and the official broadcom driver and install it that way, or according to this the 4311 is compatible with the 'wl' module.

http://wireless.kernel.org/en/users/Drivers/b43

Also if you haven't already, using

Code:
# iwlist wlan0 scan

***and***

# rfkill list
Post the output of iwlist scan and rfkill list as root.

I'm wondering whether I should just get backtrack........if the bcm43 drivers will still present an issue using that software.

This is what came up:

Hmm . . . you do realize most people here are just regular Linux users who happen to like sharing their knowledge, right?

You need to be the one to get your card working--not us.

Try this: http://www.catb.org/~esr/faqs/smart-...ns.html#volume

Edit: And please use code tags. Some people will not read your posts without them.

I appreciate the help, trust me I am looking all over on google trying to get this damned thing up and running...and having to continously reboot my computer, and plug in my usb key. Thank you everyone.

I already went to that site and downloaded and installed the drivers, I am not quite sure why its asking me to perfrom this again.

Thanks to all who helped, I appreciate it.

I appreciate the help, trust me I am looking all over on google trying to get this damned thing up and running...and having to continously reboot my computer, and plug in my usb key. Thank you everyone.


Here is more of the output from the codes everyone suggested:

I already went to that site and downloaded and installed the drivers, I am not quite sure why its asking me to perfrom this again.

Thanks to all who helped, I appreciate it.

How hard is it to use ndiswrapper? (for a linux noob).........


looking for an easy solution.

maybe slitaz is a garbage distro

I'd say it's more likely that the BCM 4311 is a garbage wireless card. As I stated before, I used to own a BCM 4312 and it was very hard to get working, but I managed to get it up and running even with monitor mode. I ended up using the ndiswrapper/b43-fwcutter utilities to get it up and running.

Furthermore, you did not run rfkill or iwlist as root. When you are asked to run a command and it says "command not found" try to run as root or with sudo to see if you really do or don't have it. You can also use locate to make sure it's not just out of your path. eg. 'locate rfkill'

Lastly, iwlist indicates 'network is down' this means that you need to follow the link I posted before to get the device recognized by your kernel. Again:

http://wireless.kernel.org/en/users/Drivers/b43

And I haven't read through what evo2 posted, but you probably should.

http://doc.slitaz.org/en:guides:wifi-easy

**Edit Two things. First when you run dmesg, you can add the tail option with the pipe | character. for example: 'dmesg | tail' would give you only the relevant sections of information. Also, dmesg straight up tells you what to do to fix this error.

Code:
b43-phy0 ERROR: Firmware file "b43/ucode5.fw" not found
b43-phy0 ERROR: Firmware file "b43-open/ucode5.fw" not found
b43-phy0 ERROR: You must go to http://wireless.kernel.org/en/users/...devicefirmware and download the correct firmware for this driver version. Please carefully read all instructions on this website.
That link didn't really copy, so here:

http://wireless.kernel.org/en/users/...devicefirmware Notice that this is the same link I provided.
