I have a dual boot (windows 7 and ubuntu 12.04) setup and, for (apparently) no reason, I can't connect to any wireless connection on my ubuntu box at all. (on Windows it works.)
I think it stopped working on the first reboot after it has been upgraded (regular updating via cli apt-get).
I can still see the connections on the top toolbar but, upon trying to connect to them, I get asked the password and then it tries to connect for about 30 seconds and then times out.
After looking for answers on the web I thought that posting the output of
sudo lshw -C network would help the people who try to help me:
*-network description: Wireless interface product: BCM4313 802.11b/g/n Wireless LAN Controller vendor: Broadcom Corporation physical id:0 bus info: pci@0000:02:00.0 logical name: eth1 version:01 serial: c0:f8:da:08:c5:e6 width:64bits clock: 33MHz capabilities: pm msi pciexpress bus_master cap_list ethernet physical wireless configuration: broadcast=yes driver=wl0 driverversion=126.96.36.199(r326264) latency=0 multicast=yes wireless=IEEE 802.11abg resources: irq:16 memory:fe500000-fe503fff
There is another entry for the Ethernet. But I didn't think it's very relevant to the problem at hand.
I have no internet access so I can't install stuff from the repos.(I'm writing this from a spare netbook I have)
My kernel version is 3.2.0-36-generic-pae
modprobe.d/blacklist.conf file, I have these lines:
# replaced by b43 and ssb blacklist bcm43xx
Thought it might be relevant.
what i have tried so far
/etc/resolv.conf- didn't work
add the following entries to
blacklist.conf(in addition to the ne that was there already)and reboot: - didn't work either
blacklist b43legacy blacklist b43 blacklist bcma blacklist ndiswrapper blacklist wl0
- the steps described on this answer - didn't work wither
