Only some wireless networks detected on Ubuntu 16.04


I am facing an issue with my wireless connections. Only some wifi networks are being listed but not all. I am not able to connect to my wireless connection as its not listed.

The output to
Code:
lspci -nn | grep 0280
is:

Quote:
07:00.0 Network controller [0280]: Broadcom Corporation BCM43142 802.11b/g/n [14e4:4365] (rev 01)
I performed an
Code:
iw reg set IN
to set it to India.

I installed the right driver 'bcmwl-kernel-source' as mentioned in the below link. Only when I installed that driver I was able to find some wireless networks but unfortunately not mine.

Is there something I am missing? How can I get my wireless connection listed? Please help.

Frequency or channel issue??? If you get one then we might assume that the wireless nic works to some extent.


If you have a modern mobile phone then you might consider installing one of the scanners that tell a bit more about what the channels out there are running and any possible interference. Some routers may do that too, dd-wrt should have it.

Hello All, Thank you for all the help. I modified my channel below 11 (Currently it was 12 and apparently 11-14 channels are disabled in this driver) and its working fine now.

11-14 is normally not used in North America isn't it? One of the reasons FCC wants to ban stuff like DD-WRT is that it allows one to bypass some of the OEM restrictions.
