I'm trying to run an old netbook with Broadcom BCM4313 wireless as a print server with Ubuntu Server 12.04. Setting up the wireless without the GUI, however, is proving problematic. I do think however I've narrowed down the problem.
I've tried both the
wl driver (from
bcmwl-kernel-source) as well as the (included)
brcmsmac driver. With both of them, when I issue the command
iwlist wlan0 scanning (
wl), I only see neighbouring networks- not my own.
I believe this might be because my networks are n-only, but my neighbouring networks are mixed mode (I suspect this because the output of
iwlist wlan0 scanning shows "Bit Rates" only as high as 54 Mb/s).
Any ideas how to go about getting this thing to connect?
