I'm trying to activate the wireless chipset on my Debian Squeeze laptop by following this tutorial.
I detected the type of wireless chipset I have built in my laptop using
lspci and now I am trying to install this driver by following the instructions on the page.
I installed the
firmware-brcm80211 package using
apt-get (after adding a non-free repo).
Once installed, the next step according to the tutorial is to do this:
# modprobe -r brcm80211 ; modprobe brcm80211
And here's the error I get:
rahmu:~$ sudo modprobe -r brcm80211 FATAL: Module brcm80211 not found.
I tried to look for the existing modules and here's what I got:
rahmu:~$ modprobe -l | grep brcm kernel/drivers/staging/brcm80211/brcmsmac/brcmsmac.ko
For what it's worth, I haven't rebooted after
apt-getting the firmware. Would it make a difference?
