- Broadcom driver woes 1 answer
I installed Ubuntu 12.10 on my old Compaq/Hp Preario V3000 to replace Windows XP. Every thing works fine except I'm getting no wireless network options in the network drop down menu. I'm using a cable at the moment.
Wirless chipset is:
05:00.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4311 802.11b/g WLAN (rev 01) 08:08.0 Ethernet controller: Intel Corporation PRO/100 VE Network Connection (rev 02)
I ran rfkill:
0: hp-wifi: Wireless LAN Soft blocked: no Hard blocked: no
I also ran iwconfig and got this
lo no wireless extensions. eth0 no wireless extensions.
In the additional drivers it says: "Using Broadcom 802.11 Linux STA wireless driver source from bcmwl-kernel-source (proprietary)"
Any help to resolve the problem would be greatly appreciated.
