Wi-Fi : Connecting fail (bcm4312)

Hi there!

I'm trying to make my integrated wifi working on my old laptop with Arch.

During the boot I can see:

ERROR: Firmware file "b43/ucode5.fw" not found
ERROR: Firmware file "b43-open/ucode5.fw" not found
ERROR: You must go to http://wireless.kernel.org/en/users/Drivers/b43#devicefirmware and download the correct firmware for this driver version. Please carefully read all instructions on this website.

So I went to this adresse and followed the guide on this link : http://linuxwireless.sipsolutions.net/e … ivers/b43/

but even if I'm able to scan and detect my SSID, when I try to connect to it I'm always trying "Connecting fail"

this is the output of lspci -nn -d 14e4:

01:00.0 Network controller [0280]: Broadcom Inc. and subsidiaries BCM4312 802.11b/g LP-PHY [14e4:4315] (rev 01)

Sorry if this is something obvious, but I really tested every things that I've seen.

I've tried also to install the b43_firmware from AUR, but I don't thing I'm using it correctly...

Thanks for your help

By any chance, did you happen to get this working?

Cheers!

There's no way we can tell unless you share your exact method.

Have you tried the wl driver?

@Gugi: the OP can scan with the device so it isn't blocked.
