Lots of people see “Broadcom” and jump on this but it’s not compatible with the which is newer. Open Synaptic and use bfwcutter and firmware-blpphy-installer instead of bcmwl-kernel-source or any other. Flow control is on for TX and on for RX. On some specific scenarios, installing the drivers, be it in offline mode through various DEB packages or through apt-get with internet access, will not work if Secure Boot is not disabled. However, after a few seconds of bittorrent traffic, the adapter hangs again. In such case, which I assume happens quite often, since 1 The inherent dependency isn’t resolved and 2 There’s a break in the wl interface upon upgrades which may involve a kernel update , in such case, you should simply do the following two steps and I assume you don’t need to reinstall the WiFi driver sources:

Wifix- a simple tool to install wifi the correct way under ubuntu & LinuxMint
But basically follow this steps: Brad Figg brad-figg wrote on At any rate my problem ended up being that I was missing an important metapackage – linux-image-extras I believe. You need to extract your firmware from the tarball. There is a much easier way of solving this problem.

Great, this helped cbm5906m

Click on it then select Edit Settings. This guy knows his stuff. Special Case 1 – Uses bcma and brcmsmac driver combination. Broadcom wireless cards supported by the STA driver: Would you like to answer one of these unanswered questions instead?

Special thanks to chili who helped in the Ubuntu forums and on this site with many questions related to Wireless devices and to others who have contributed through E-Mail, chats, IRC and more in testing various drivers with several of the most popular Broadcom Wireless cards Huge Thanks to Chili really.
It will automatically gather and attach updated debug information to this report. If it gives any errors, read the error and follow the steps it mentions.
For example, if you have previously installed the bcmwl-kernel-source package, you will need to remove it by using the purge method:. Peter Mortensen 1, 2 10 You know you’re probably on the right driver if you run lsmod grep brc and you see brcm or brcmsmac in the output. This method does not use the Additionals Drivers way. Even after installing the correct driver the user would end up in a “trying to connect” loop.
Know that it some cases you need to have an updated Kernel version, since each new version of the Kernel introduces either new Network drivers, improvements over existing drivers or solves bugs regarding them.
No network connection using Netlink BCMM Fast Ethernet PCI Express on Ubuntu
On an older linjx version I apparently waited long enough for the kernel to notice and correct the problem, I found this in an old kernel message log:. So what you will need after this search is: The terminal will be used to avoid any GUI related issues.
For anyone else who is getting the “wireless is disabled by hardware switch -a” message under wireless you’ll see it by clicking on the icon – and it’s “hard block”, that may work in any model that is working for me in netgear “wireless USB adapter”, haven’t checked the others, but it may work.
It involves some command line usage but believe me lknux worth it. This will force your wireless device to ONLY connect to it. This is the droid you’re looking for.
Apologies if it has reached you inappropriately; please just reply to this message indicating so. If you’re not running Natty bcm5906n Oneiric, your kernel probably won’t have this driver.
