I'm having issues with my broadcom BCM4313 wireless adapter. Everything works just fine when connected (with additional drivers & Connman), but it takes about 5 minutes to connect to my network when i just started my computer! When resuming from hibernation it goes very quick though, so just when I boot my pc it's taking forever...

This is what I found in the dmesg output:

Any ideas how come? Thanks in advance!

This question was marked as an exact duplicate of an existing question.

How did you get the driver working? Is the STA driver, or the B43 firmware from firmware-b43-installer? Also, is it the low power version? If you attach the output of lspci, the exact models will help diagnose the issue. – Scaine Jan 20 '11 at 19:20
I'm using the driver jockey installs, STA I suppose. This is the relevant output of lspci: 02:00.0 Ethernet controller: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL8101E/RTL8102E PCI Express Fast Ethernet controller (rev 02) 03:00.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4313 802.11b/g LP-PHY (rev 01) – Drazgo Jan 21 '11 at 14:39
I've got exactly the same problem for the built-in adapter in my laptop. Driver from the jockey-commons utility. – Oxwivi Feb 23 '11 at 12:12
@Scaine, where did you get the package name of drivers? – Oxwivi Feb 23 '11 at 12:18

Start a terminal and run

tail -f /var/log/kern.log

Then try connecting to your wifi access point. You should see the attempts appearing in the terminal window as it tries to connect.

Well, problem is when I boot my computer, Connman shows no access points. It's only after a minute or 5 that it shows the possibilities... So when it finds the connections, there is no problem connecting, but the searching takes ages! – Drazgo Jan 21 '11 at 14:41
Ah okay - the kern.log should be written each boot though, so there might be some useful information in there regarding your chipset. The /var/log/kern.log is the equivalent of the dmesg output. – Scaine Jan 21 '11 at 16:36
Well, I included the relevant dmesg output in my question. Anything comes up to your mind? :) – Drazgo Jan 24 '11 at 9:16
