I'm having trouble setting up my wifi connection on GoboLinux. I already installed the propietary broadcom drivers. The wifi module is now recognized, at least.
iwconfig wlan0 gives me the following output:
wlan0 IEEE 802.11bg ESSID:off/any Mode:Managed Access Point: Not-Associated Tx-Power=20 dBm Retry short limit:7 RTS thr:off Fragment thr:off Power Management:off
That means there must be some kind of wifi module build into my laptop. (Using Windows it works btw.)
lspci -k shows me the name of the Network controller.
04:00.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4312 802.11b/g LP-PHY (rev 01) Subsystem: Broadcom Corporation Device 04b5 Kernel driver in use: b43-pci-bridge Kernel modules: ssb
The firmware is being loaded -
dmesg | grep b43:
[ 8.127113] b43-phy0: Broadcom 4312 WLAN found (core revision 15) [ 8.142216] b43-phy0: Found PHY: Analog 6, Type 5 (LP), Revision 1 [ 1339.940316] b43-phy0: Loading firmware version 666.2 (2011-02-23 01:15:07) [ 1777.008290] b43-phy0: Radio hardware status changed to DISABLED [ 1782.025291] b43-phy0: Radio hardware status changed to ENABLED [ 2247.468296] b43-phy0: Loading firmware version 666.2 (2011-02-23 01:15:07)
I am not able to scan for existing wifi networks and also cannot connect to one. What am I missing?
