I switched routers from a Fritzbox 7390 to a Dlink 615. Since I switched I cant connect over WLAN in 13.04 to the Dlink. It works fine in Windows8 and my Android devices.

Thanks for yor help :)

Which WLAN are you using? What is the output of sudo modprobe wl? –  Dillmo Jul 31 '13 at 11:45
    
markjh@Netbook:~$ sudo modprobe wl [sudo] password for markjh: markjh@Netbook:~$ There is no output ? All I did, was switching my Router :( –  markjh Jul 31 '13 at 15:11

1 Answer 1

Install the proprietary wifi drivers for your computer. wl is a module in the Broadcom drivers, so it's absence means you are not using them. Chances are, your router is incompatible with the open-source drivers. That would explain why Windows and Android work, but Linux does not.
