I'm having serious problems installing the Broadcom drivers for Ubuntu. It worked perfectly on my previous version, but now, it is impossible. I'm a user with no advance knowledge in Linux, so I would need clear explanations on make, compile, etc.
Edit: For the command: "lspci | grep Network", I get the following message:
06:00.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4311 802.11b/g WLAN (rev 01)
For the command: iwconfig, i get the following:
lo no wireless extensions. eth0 no wireless extensions.
When i follow the following steps (from the above link), there are a NO error message at all:
open the 'Synaptic Package Manager' and search for
make sure that the
b43-fwcutterpackages are installed
type into terminal:
cat /etc/modprobe.d/* | egrep '8180|acx|at76|ath|b43|bcm|CX|eth|ipw|irmware|isl|lbtf|orinoco|ndiswrapper|NPE|p54|prism|rtl|rt2|rt3|rt6|rt7|witch|wl'
(you may want to copy this) and see if the term
blacklist bcm43xxis there
if it is, type cd
sudo gedit blacklist.conf
put a # in front of the line:
then save the file (I was getting error messages in the terminal about not being able to save, but it actually did save properly).
reboot 'End of procedure'
Before (not ubuntu 11.04), if i wanted to connect wireles, i just went to the icon at the upper side of the screen, click, showed ALL the wireless network available, and done.
Now, the only options i see are:
- Wired Network
- Auto Eth0
- Enable networking
- Connection information
- Edit connection.
lspci -vnn | grep Network showed:
Broadcom Corporation BCM4322 802.11a/b/g/n Wireless LAN Controller [14e4:432b]
hope above info is enough for your help.
