SOLVED What the name of the driver for BCM43224

I have a laptop Dell Vostro 3700. I try to install archlinux-2012.12.01-dual. During the installation, when I start wifi-menu and select my network and enter the password wireless network works. But when the system is installed and reboot the system, then I can not connect wireless network.

lspci -vnn | grep 14e4:
Broadcom Corporation BCM 43224 802.11a/b/g/n [14e4:4353] (rev 01)

Entering commands:
wpa_passphrase my_essid my_password > /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf
wpa_supplicant -B -Dwext -i wlan0 -c /etc/wpa_supplicant

I've found the cause, it is the driver name the wireless network. How do you know the correct name of the driver for my wireless card?


The OS Windows 7 64-bit defined as DW1520 Wireless-N WLAN Half-Mini Card.

Already worn out, four days trying to set up, but does not work.

Re: SOLVED What the name of the driver for BCM43224

The wiki would have quickly led you to the answer to your question: brcmsmac.

Though I don't know how that relates to the rest of what is in your post.

I'd suggest making sure the proper modules are loaded (and no others), ensuring that wlan0 is up, then running wpa_supplicant without the "-Dwext".

Trilby If you can not find the answer, then ask it on the forum. Removed -Dwext, but still does not work.

Make sure that the b43 module is not loaded.

Even if it is, it won't interfere, because the Arch kernel doesn't have B43_BCMA_EXTRA activated.

@explorer: You haven't provided *any* info regarding what's going on on your machine. You're not the first with wireless problems, you could've seen in other posts which info is usually asked for (dmesg, output of the commands you're running...)

Re: SOLVED What the name of the driver for BCM43224

I listed three suggestions.  Did you put wlan0 up?  What does "Does not work" mean?  What error messages do you get, or what is the result?

Re: SOLVED What the name of the driver for BCM43224

First, make the interface up
ifconfig wlan0 up

Check what driver is loaded with command
lspci -k

bcma-pci-driver

Third time's the charm ... maybe.

EDIT: is that the right driver?  I'm not familiar with that one, so maybe it'd work to.  But it should be brcmsmac.

Yes, this is the correct driver. But manually configure the network can not. Does not work.

Perhaps the fourth time will take.  Or perhaps not.  I pretty much don't care anymore - it doesn't seem like you actually want help.

Well, at the very least you could post your solution to help others who may find themselves in the same situation.  But at this point I'm really just talking to myself I fear.

Re: SOLVED What the name of the driver for BCM43224

The solution was very simple. After login as root run wifi-menu, select your wireless network and enter the password.

Сheck connection with command
ping google.com

If you have the answer, then the network is set up and running.


NB!!! Install the following packages wireless_tools, dhclient, wicd, wifi-radar.

Re: SOLVED What the name of the driver for BCM43224

I suspect originally you just didn't use dhcpcd or dhclient after you were connected - and you would have arrived at a solution much faster if you actually interacted with the input your received here.

I'll remember in the future that you use this forum only as a blog to report your challenges and you do not actually want input.

Re: SOLVED What the name of the driver for BCM43224

I remember when I set up a wired network on Ubuntu 7.04. There will need to be removed Network Manager and manually set the network configuration.

I just have pretty bored  with Windows and have a great desire to configure a good disro of Linux. Ones tried Arch Linux. I liked it, now is the time and the desire to set up a complete system.

Thank you for your support.
