Re: [Official] broadcom-wl thread

The network daemon hangs on boot for my HP Mini 1125NR netbook.  Currently connecting via wired dhcp netcfg setup.  Looking to get wireless working and my network daemon booting properly.

Re: [Official] broadcom-wl thread

Hi,

I have Asus Eee PC 1215N with BCM4313.
I installed driver from AUR: http://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=19514
WIreless is visible, but I cant scaning network:

# iwlist scan
lo        Interface doesn't support scanning.

eth0      Interface doesn't support scanning.

wlan0     Failed to read scan data : Invalid argument

Wicd also can't find any networks.

Any suggestions?

Re: [Official] broadcom-wl thread

I've got another problem: on 2.7.37-rc1 I cannot compile this driver: returns me "/usr/src/linux-2.6.37-rc1-31697-gb2298fd-dirty/arch/x86/include/asm/io.h:44:21: fatal error: xen/xen.h: No such file or directory" - what can I do with this problem? I've found that someone has the same problem with catalyst building, but there was no solution. Could you help me?

EDITL I've found a solution:

cp /usr/src/linux-`uname -r`/include/config/xen.h /usr/src/linux-`uname -r`/include/config/xen/xen.h  && cp /usr/src/linux-`uname -r`/include/config/xen /usr/src/linux-`uname -r`/include/ -r

It had helped me, package builds and works of course.

Re: [Official] broadcom-wl thread

@ajes: For the 4313 I'd recommend to use the opensource driver: http://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=42670 It has still issues but works better than the blob from Broadcom.

I actually have this same problem (can't find xen.h) when I'm installing the binary NVIDIA driver on 2.6.37-git.

However, I don't even have the file. Are there any special kernel config options that are required?

Re: [Official] broadcom-wl thread

When running makepkg I get the following:

I can't figure out how to fix this.  I'm not sure how to enter in a rule nor where to put it.  I've had no issues installing this package in previous versions but for some reason after upgrading the kernel and trying to use the package from the AUR broadcom-wl 5.60.246.6-1 it refuses to work.
Any ideas?

Could anyone suggest where to start investigating the problem?

I honestly think Broadcom gets the office janitors to code their Linux drivers.

I bumped into this tonight as well, I removed the include line in io.h. Don't know if it's the right thing to do, but it seems to have been removed in the 2.6.37 RC's, so I suppose that include line is some cruft left behind. Code compiles fine after that (crystalhd SVN).

Re: [Official] broadcom-wl thread

My [14e4:4315] only works with the wl driver (although in the past in worked with the b43 one, go figure).
The problem is, and has always been, the reception quality, which is pure, delicious, crap.
I get frequent connection losses when less than 20m away from my router, on a more or less open space (my ipod and all other wifi devices show 100% signal). Anyone got a fix for that?

I always found weird to have the txpower set at 20/24dB, when in Windows it's constantly at 32 -- would that have an impact in reception quality?
I think I'm cursed... I even bought an Intel card and it turned out to be a stupid engineering sample that worked in Windows but not in Arch. Gah..

I have the same issue with the broadcom-wl 5.100.82.38-2 running under ARCH=x86_64.

Here is my rc.conf modules:

I had !ssb in there but it turns off my wired network card.

Re: [Official] broadcom-wl thread

I think I'm on the cusp of getting BCM4312 wireless working on my HP Mini 1125NR netbook via netcfg.

I upgraded to the latest standard 2.6.36 kernel and reinstalled broadcom-wl from the AUR. 
  After reinstalling broadcom-wl I ran this script to clean things up.

#!/bin/bash

rmmod b43 ssb wl lib80211_crypt_tkip lib80211

modprobe lib80211_crypt_tkip
modprobe wl

depmod -a

Do I need to do anything else in regards to a kernel upgrade and wl?

I changed my rc.conf
Does autoloading modules and listing them cause a conflict?

MOD_AUTOLOAD="yes"
#MOD_BLACKLIST=() #deprecated
MODULES=(!lib80211 lib80211_crypt_tkip wl snd-hda-intel)

Currently backgrounding @network

Using MAC addresses I changed my interfaces to eth0 and wlan0.  Also changed my interfaces in rc.conf

You have to "sudo iwconfig". I think it's the only wifi driver that doesn't show you that info for non-root users.

Re: [Official] broadcom-wl thread

I updated my kernel and so had to update my broadcom-wl driver to the most recent version and noticed that the driver does not find my wlan network with "iwlist eth1 scan". After some testing I changed the "wide channel" of my wlan-network in the wlan-router from "11" to "3" (arbitrary change) and the driver now successfully connects to my network.

Does anybody else discover such problems? If yes, maybe this information could be added to the wiki to help others having problems.

Since upgrading to 2.6.37 I haven't been able to get broadcom-wl to work. I get this same error when I install from the AUR and also when I build it from source. Is anyone else having these problems?

Re: [Official] broadcom-wl thread

I also have a problem since 2.6.37

I use wicd (& wicd-curses) and I just can't scan, « No Wireless Networks found. » where I'd have had a lot before this kernel update.
I tried to recompile the driver from aur but nothing new.

Re: [Official] broadcom-wl thread

The same problem here. Iwlist eth1 scan and wicd scanning doesnt work after updating the broadcom-wl driver.

Re: [Official] broadcom-wl thread

I finally managed to get it work using aur/kernel-netbook (2.6.37-1) and this driver.
Hope it will help

Re: [Official] broadcom-wl thread

What is the great difference between kernel-netbook and the standard kernel?
There have to be more people having this kind of bug if it's a kernel related problem.

Re: [Official] broadcom-wl thread

Finally got broadcom-wl to work seamlessly on my system since tweaking my rc.conf and upgrading my standard kernel to 2.6.37
  I use netcfg and have broadcom-wl installed from the AUR.  Setting MAC addresses for my interfaces to eth0 and wlan0 really simplifies things for me.  I keep this script handy:

#!/bin/bash

rmmod b43 ssb wl lib80211_crypt_tkip lib80211

modprobe lib80211_crypt_tkip
modprobe wl

depmod -a

(important bits my from my rc.conf)
MODULES=(lib80211 wl !b43 !ssb snd-hda-intel)
eth0="dhcp"
wlan0="dhcp"
INTERFACES=(wlan0 eth0)
WIRELESS_INTERFACE="wlan0"
WIRED_INTERFACE="eth0"


One thing at a time

Re: [Official] broadcom-wl thread

Not so much luck here. I've tried kernel-netbook but i wasn't able to compile broadcom-wl on it (some error with an asm.io include that complains about xen.h).
I also tried your setting with the default kernel and the same as the last week: no scanning, no networks found. I use wicd and followed the instructions that are listed on the wiki page.
It worked fine before I updated my system so what could it be?
Here are some lines of my rc.conf:

MODULES=(lib80211_crypt_tkip !ssd !b43-legacy !b43 !brcm80211 wl autofs4 acpi-cpufreq cpufreq_ondemand cpufreq_powersave)
eth0="eth0 192.168.1.25 netmask 255.255.255.0 broadcast 192.168.0.255"
INTERFACES=(!eth0 !eth1)
WIRELESS_INTERFACE="eth1"
WIRED_INTERFACE="eth0"
gateway="default gw 192.168.1.1"
ROUTES=(!gateway)

I hope there is a solution to this, a netbook without wlan realy sucks^^


Edit:
Got it! There seems to be a problem with rfkill softswitch settings. I just installed the rfkill package, disabled all softswitch settings and tada.. WLAN!
Thanks to everyone for helping!
