[SOLVED]No wireless after kernel upgrade

Hi,

Wireless has stopped working after previous kernel upgrade.  I have disabled ipv6 and  802.11n mode but no luck getting it work. I have been reading but can't figure out. Thanks.

Re: [SOLVED]No wireless after kernel upgrade

Check your kernel log for any messages related to the your wifi driver.

Pastebin won't let me post whole kernel log. I am posting 'grep wlan0'. Wireless network is associating and and 'deauthenticating from 00:21:91:fe:1d:eb by local choice (reason=3)'.

Re: [SOLVED]No wireless after kernel upgrade

... in other words, stuff you have already posted.

My advice was to look for messages related to your wifi driver - i.e. the kernel module that makes your wifi device work. If you don't know the name of your driver, try lspci -k .

This is really silly. Wifi has started working again.

Re: [SOLVED]No wireless after kernel upgrade

I've got annoying stuff after updating as well. But in my case there's a snag when loading b43 module on Linux 3.2,

b43-phy1 ERROR: FOUND UNSUPPORTED PHY (Analog 10, Type 8, Revision 1)

However, I had no problem when loading brcmsmac module while it stayed in staging branch, so I have been pitchforked into downgrading Linux kernel to 3.1.7 for now. After all, the previous ones have worked fine to me for a long time, and as the saying goes, "if it works don't fix it" ;-)

Even so, I hope to fix it as soon as possible, because I'm obviously kidding.

By the way, my problematic hardware [ lspci -knn | grep -A3 14e4 ],

02:00.0 Network controller [0280]: Broadcom Corporation BCM4313 802.11b/g/n Wireless LAN Controller [14e4:4727] (rev 01)
	Subsystem: Askey Computer Corp. Device [144f:7175]
	Kernel driver in use: brcmsmac
	Kernel modules: brcmsmac, bcma

Thanks in advance.

akanski - see here.

Also, you should use the testing sub-forum for issues with testing packages.

Thank you @tomk, but from what I've been able to glance at the kernel source tree, I realize that the package maintainers didn't compile brcmsmac module :-(

I suppose it's happened owing to the fact that all BRCM80211 drivers have been moved from staging branch into net subsystem right now (i.e. since Linux 3.2). So I'd prefer to wait for a new package release to solve the snag with this module rather than compiling it manually for myself. :-)
