I ended up fixing the problem by manyaly downloading bcmwl-kernel-source and its dependency dkms on another computer. I transfered it via usb and after I installed it I was able to access the internet just fine.

You could do a distribution upgrade in the first instance prior to doing any hardware support updates. sudo apt-get dist-upgrade Or sudo do-release-upgrade After you have updated the distribution you can then see if the hardware support updates are still available and then opt if you would like to install them or not (self preference?) If you are not ...

Are you sure it is not an update or something else that is starting to run (like normally in Windows...) Check processor activity with System Monitor and test network speed (with a known speed test site) to confirm. Disconnect and reconnect and do speed test again to make sure it is a driver or configuration issue. Sorry, this is all I can help.

I would check the results of iwlist scan for your access point to look for TKIP as it will reduce download speed and try echo options iwlwifi 11n_disable=8" | sudo tee -a /etc/modprobe.d/iwlwifi.conf and reboot https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/+bug/1319630 is a bug report that says that performance dropped 85% without using the 11n_disable=8 ...

When you removed bcmwl-kernel-source, a blacklist file was left behind. It is preferable to purge, not remove. Let's remove the blacklist file: sudo rm /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist-bcm43.conf In some cases, upon boot, the driver b43 also loads and the wireless doesn't work. If this is your case, post back and we'll proceed. We may need to blacklist b43 or ...

Thanks for your tips. Neither booting different older kernels nor restarting the network as supposed did help. I've found a workaround, which persistently works: Setting the WLAN security on the Fritz box from WPA2 (CCMP) or WPA + WPA2 to WPA (TKIP). Can't explain why, but it works. Pete

Ubuntu 10.04 ist bald 5 Jahre alt, ein Upgrade auf eine aktuelle LTS Version (14.04) könnte helfen da die aktuellen Versionen auch neuere/bessere Treiber mit bringen. Ubuntu 10.04 is quite old, upgrading to a newer Version might help to get newer drivers to run the Wlan more stable.

What windows driver did you use ndiswrapper -l that card is supported in the kernel. If there isn't a wireless switch do echo "blacklist ideapad_laptop" | sudo tee /etc/modprobe.d/ideapad.conf and reboot to see if it is enabled. Then I will help to get the kernel drivers going again Edit: to remove the ndiswrapper version sudo ndiswrapper -r netwsw00 ...

Unless uname -a shows you are using kernel 3.16, your wireless should work after sudo apt-get install bcmwl-kernel-source If you are using 3.16, just add it to your question as you will need the utopic version

I believe you have the incorrect driver. Please open a terminal and do: sudo apt-get install firmware-b43-installer sudo apt-get purge bcmwl-kernel-source Reboot and tell us if it is working as expected.

You should sudo apt-get purge bcmwl-kernel-source sudo apt-get install linux firmware Reboot and if wifi still isn't working, you can blacklist a couple modules echo "blacklist b43" | sudo tee -a /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf echo "blacklist ssb" | sudo tee -a /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf Then it should work unless you blacklisted one of the needed ...

I've had learning curves with WICD in the past along these lines too... My solution was that the router was emitting wpa1/wpa2 but not doing the greatest job of it (for WICD to connect to). I then set the router to wpa2 (passphrase) only (pretty much all tech from the last 5-8 years runs wpa2 in my experience so it doesn't alienate any of my other hardware) ...

If you are worried about privacy from others on the wireless (which you should be) you can be using a VPN like cyberghost. You should also have a strong firewall like zonealarm If you are using WPA2 or not if the attacker is on the wireless they can still access the package data, I am not sure why it is said you can't. I am not going to get in to that here. ...

AFAIU, bcmwl-kernel-source is correct, so I suggest you reinstall it: sudo apt-get install --reinstall bcmwl-kernel-source sudo modprobe wl Now check the logs for informative messages: dmesg | grep wl It appears that, although you have a 3.16.0-xx kernel (thanks, @Jeremy31!), apt has tried to install the version for Ubuntu 14.04.

A friend of mine figured it out. I had to change my Channel from 13 to 11 (anything below 12 should work). It seems my laptop or at least the wifi card was made in the USA and there Channel above 11 are used/were used for something else. So their wifi cards only check up to 11.

You can try sudo modprobe ath9k and see if it will work. If it doesn't include the results from dmesg | tail If sudo modprobe ath9k works you can echo ath9k | sudo tee -a /etc/modules so it will work after a reboot

Since it will connect with wifi at work, I would look at your wifi router settings and see if the encryption is set for WPA2 only with no TKIP or WEP as it seems that Linux has issues when WEP or TKIP is used

I also use X200MA, and I tried this "IPv6 off" method. A little more speed up of X200MA Wifi.

Are you sure that you are signed into their wifi system? Usually they give you some sort of code, usually printed on a receipt. Once you connect to the router you are sent to a webpage that prompts you to enter the code before you can connect to the internet. The dropped packets may be caused by the router not accepting a lot of pings to stop attacks.

I am not sure if this will fix your issue or not, but disabling IPv6 and changing the channel on your router may help. In the log, it says at the bottom that it keeps timing out. It also says it's configuring IPV6 around that time. Further up on that log it says that channel 6 has 15 APs on it. You might consider using something less common, channel 4 ...

If you go into system settings, software and updates, additional drivers should show the broadcom sta driver(aka bcmwl-kernel-source). This driver should work for your wifi
