I am not able to install wireless card driver on Ubuntu? I tried to install it manually but not able to install?
Sorry that I have to add this as an answer, as I don't have rep to comment yet. Thanks to chili555 reply and racar comment I now have the PCE-AC68 working on my system, Ubuntu 15.04 on mobo ASUS A88XM-A by
sudo apt-get install bcmwl-kernel-source sudo modprobe wl sudo reboot
I wanted the card as I've upgraded my cable modem + wifi router to Telstra Gateway Max (rebadged Netgear) which supports dual band wifi. Link speeds specified as 216/292 Mbps. It's probably not ideally set up yet as I'm only getting about 30 Mbps - I note that it's 802.11abg connection from iwconfig:
wlan1 IEEE 802.11abg ESSID:"Telstra226B" Mode:Managed Frequency:2.437 GHz Access Point: 40:5D:82:47:F4:66 Retry short limit:7 RTS thr:off Fragment thr:off Power Management:on
But at least it is working now, and faster than my old Netgear WN111 usb plugin :) So thank you again.
Please run the command:
Is your device this?
Broadcom Corporation BCM4360 802.11ac Wireless Network Adapter (rev 03)
If so, it uses the driver bcmwl-kernel-source. If you still have the install DVD or USB, then you can find it and its prerequisite there. Navigate to pool > restricted > b > bcmwl and drag and drop the deb file to your desktop. Now navigate to pool > main > d > dkms and drag and drop dkms to your desktop. Now install both with:
cd ~/Desktop sudo dpkg -i *.deb
Load the driver:
sudo modprobe wl
Your wireless should now be working. If it not as I described, please post your finding and I will edit my answer to propose a different solution.
I'm using the same Wifi Adapter and got it to work as chili555 mentioned (could not comment yet). But on a default installation of Ubuntu there's a package missing which is mandatory. This is the DKMS package. So you need to install the DKMS package first before installing the driver package like Chilli555 explained.
sudo apt-get install dkms
Working on Ubuntu 14.10 and using the 5Ghz band it's performance is similar to what it is under Windows. On my internet connection I'm getting 200+ Mbit/s
sudo install ndiswrapper-common ndiswrapper-modules-1.9 ndiswrapper-utils-1.9
Install the WiFi driver (from Windows):
sudo ndiswrapper -i yourdriver.inf
Check the driver is working:
sudo ndiswrapper -l
Load the module:
sudo depmod -a sudo modprobe ndiswrapper
Configure modprobe so that it loads ndiswrapper:
sudo ndiswrapper -m
Edit the modules to add ndiswrapper at the end:
sudo -H gedit /etc/modules
Remember to add ndiswrapper at the end.
Hope you now have your WiFi up and working!
