Just installed Fedora 18 and I can't get the wireless to work.
What do I have and what have I done?
I have a
Broadcom BCM4312 which is supported by the
broadcom-wl driver. (link)
lspci | grep Network 00:19.0 Ethernet controller: Intel Corporation 82567LM Gigabit Network Connection (rev 03) 0c:00.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4312 802.11b/g LP-PHY (rev 01)
I have installed the driver and the kernel modules for it:
rpm -qa | grep -e '-wl' | sort akmod-wl-22.214.171.124-7.fc18.4.i686 broadcom-wl-126.96.36.199-4.fc18.noarch kmod-wl-3.7.4-204.fc18.i686-188.8.131.52-7.fc18.8.i686
uname -r 3.7.4-204.fc18.i686
I have loaded the module
modprobe wl lsmod | sort | grep wl cfg80211 171182 1 wl lib80211 13684 1 wl wl 2465403 0
And even removed the
ssb module, which I read on couple forums.
Restarted the service, and even rebooted:
service NetworkManager restart
After all these, the wireless card is still not visible. What am I missing?
