Wireless doesn't work on a Broadcom BCM4312
I have a problem connecting my Dell Vostro 1520 to wireless internet. Output of
0: hci0: Bluetooth Soft blocked: no Hard blocked: no 1: brcmwl-0: Wireless LAN Soft blocked: no Hard blocked: no 2: dell-wifi: Wireless LAN Soft blocked: yes Hard blocked: yes 3: dell-bluetooth: Bluetooth Soft blocked: no Hard blocked: no
I've tried other solutions like
/etc/modprobe.d$ sudo gedit blacklist.conf and blacklisting the 43xx part, also tried getting
sudo apt-get install firmware-b43-installer and
sudo apt-get install b43-fwcutter and at last I've tried installing th privative(?) drivers for the Wireless Card. (Broadcom STA Wireless Driver), with following result for
0e:00.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4312 802.11b/g LP-PHY (rev 01)
It's obvious I've the switch turned [on], but it says that wireless is disabled by hardware switch and when I enter "System Settings -▸ Network -▸ Airplane Mode" it is turned [on] and when I turn it [off] and try to turn [on] the Wireless button, it goes to [off] position automatically.
Thanks for the help.
