[SOLVED] Problem with broadcom-wl and netcfg

A bit of a preface:

  • Some version information:

    $ uname -a
    Linux tim-macbook-arch 3.7.6-1-ARCH #1 SMP PREEMPT Mon Feb 4 09:15:13 CET 2013 x86_64 GNU/Linux
  • $ pacman -Q netcfg
    netcfg 3.0-1
  • This works fine:

    $ sudo ip link set eth1 up
    $ sudo wpa_supplicant -B -Dwext -i eth1 -c /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf
    ...
    $ sudo dhcpd eth1

Any pointers to debug this further / find a solution?

$ sudo netcfg my-cfg
:: upstairs up
Successfully initialized wpa_supplicant
nl80211: 'nl80211' generic netlink not found
Failed to initialize driver 'nl80211'

Post your "my-cfg" profile (without the password).


I laugh, yet the joke is on me

Re: [SOLVED] Problem with broadcom-wl and netcfg

Seems I found a fix.

Simple solution was to add a larger timeout to the network profile.

TIMEOUT=60

To make sure the nl80211 driver was being used to suppress those log messages, I ensured the lib80211 and cfg80211 modules were being loaded at boot.
