Taggo:
Great! :)

ONEEYEMAN:
Like I said in the previous post, the issue is probably with an ACPI controlled button. What kind of machine do you have? Have you tried the NDISwrapper workaround yet? (Loading and unloading the NDIS version of the driver to enable the card, then loading bcm43xx to use it)

I have a DELL Inspiron E1505.
And I didn't tried the ndiswrapper yet...
Also, what do you mean by the "ACPI button"? The "Power button"?

Thank you.

Like I said before: acer_acpi is a good example of what I mean by ACPI button. Basically, the radio is turned on/off by ACPI. In Windows, the wirless button on your keyboard turns it on/off. You'll need to provide that functionality somehow to get it working. So I suggested trying to load the NDISwrapper driver first, unload it, then load bcm43xx. That is what worked for nesl247.

Has anyone had any trouble getting WEP to work in 2.6.19?

It works fine here with 19-rc2. (Sent with a bcm4318 on 2.6.19-rc2 over a WEP connection) :)

JoseJX,
Is there any documentation about setting up "ndiswrapper"?

Thank you.

I have the E1505 working under ndiswrapper. All I did was to copy dell's driver into the ndiswrapper directory, load the ndiswrapper module, then iwconfig. There is a gentoo ndiswrapper howto, also.

Is 2.6.19_rc3 working with wpa_supplicant for anyone??

I bring the network up and then initiate wpa_supplicant manually and no access points are found?

Iwlist clearly show the AP available with AES encryption.

Also have xubuntu running fine with bcm43xx on 2.6.17 (with the same wpa_supplicant.conf) and can't see why this doesn't work?

Any pointers?

TIA

The "Wi-Fi" light is still not lit.

I just copy the driver and the inf file from the windows partition to the Gentoo, and run "ndiswrapper -i <inffile>".
It was installed cleanly.

Any suggestion?

Thank you.

Please do not use this thread for ndiswrapper questions, this thread is for the bcm43xx open source driver only.

Also, what do you mean by the "ACPI button"? The "Power button"?

Thank you.


I've got an Inspiron 6400 which is pretty much the same machine, I believe. Don't know about the acpi button. I'd interpret that as the power button, but i dunno. I do have Suspend2 working with ACPI. See later in the post. I'm wondering whether the ndiswrapper module and ACPI are in conflict with eachother.

I'm using 2.6.18-r2(no-sources) kernel. Here's where I am in getting this b$#$@#d 4311 working. I've achieved "success" in installation, not by using bcm-fwcutter with the wl_apsta.o module to extract the firmware bits.
Modprobing the bcm43xx module went fine. dmesg showed me in the last line "bcm43xx driver" and that's all.

However, I cannot see the device listed with ifconfig or iwconfig.

Now, on the ndiswrapper front, I'm able to install the driver successfully, see the device, but "modprobe ndiswrapper" eventually causes the machine to freeze(I'm just running into this and haven't trouble shot yet-no response to keyboard, mouse input and the Caps Lock and Scroll Lock(?) begin simultaneously flashing). I'm going to see what I can find on nsidwrapper module and kernel freeze and ACPI.

Anyone with further input is welcome to contribute...

As you might have already found out, 4311 requires the patches listed in the first post in the thread on top of 2.6.18, which is why your device isn't being recognized.

JoseJX:

Sorry to be a pest and ask possibly redundant questions but here's my grief:

I'm running the 2.6.18-gentoo-r1 kernel and I'm fighting with bcm43xx and SoftMAC.

The problem of the moment is I'm getting intermittent failures of the bcm43xx_inivalxx.fw files. It's either a 'file-format' problem or a 'read' problem, or something like that that's keeping the driver from working.

Doesn't matter what version of apsta / bcmwl5 / ...(5a) file I use, they all 'sort-of' work, (meaning they all do the same thing) so I've been sticking to the one that shipped with the laptop: Compaq's latest 'bcmwl5a.sys'

Now I have the (rev 03) version of the buil-in 4306: 14e4:4320 and I can get WPA connection to my router maybe 20% of the time, but that's provided I actually can get the bcm43xx driver loaded right.

I ran across something from around June that said this kind of problem was a potential race condition and the solution seemed to be a newer 'fwcutter' version. I'm running version 005 which is the latest 'Porkage' offers.

I'm also seeing a lot about PCI-e and the 10-patch set. Will this possibly remedy my situation? My card seems to be identified correctly - but I'm also using the kernel flag "pci=assign-busses" at boot time. That may be getting around the pci-e issue.

Last thing about the patches: 2.6.19-rc5 is out in the vanilla-sources. Does this have what's needed in it (with respect to bcm43xx/PCI-e) yet? If not, do you happen to recall which date in the MARC archives the latest (2.6.18.1) patches were posted (as you'd mentioned above)?

Thanks for all your efforts by the way. I'm sure we all mean it. Ndiswrapper just wasn't good enough for me and even after trying it again, it still won't work any better than bcm43xx with the udev I'm using (103)

Oh, that reminds me: Could it be udev 103 that's making things difficult here?

ValenceParadigm:
No problem, the thread is here for questions. Your 4306 card is a PCI card, that chipset does not support PCI-E interconnect, so the patches won't do anything for you. My guess is that you're running into this bug: https://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=147006

See if that applies to you, hopefully that will fix your firmware problem.

Spot on! That was it, and I would've solved that one much earlier if I'd been able to get to bugs.gentoo.org from my home connection - for some reason 'bugsy' hates my service provider because I can't connect from any machine at home.

Truth be told: It never even occurred to me to try it from this location!! <ahem... "DUH!!">

10,000 'thank-yous' for also setting me straight on the PCI / PCI-e variants. Compaq likes to fill their documentation with lots of buzzwords and 'TLA's, but they're so loosely thrown about, that I'm not conviced that even they know what they're talking about.

In fact that'll remedy another thread too!

Thanks for the help.

Seems like a dev is directing discussion to the wrong forum tree. Anyway, here's mine:

Mine is Gentoo x86 Dell Inspiron 5160 with BCM4309, Linux kernel 2.6.18-gentoo-r2ulmo-i; WORKS with bcm43xx as well as ndiswrapper.

JoseJX wrote:
7. Make sure that you have hotplug or >=udev-096 installed for firmware loading support, wireless-tools for the iwconfig tool and wpa_supplicant if you require WPA support. Note that if you have >=udev-096 AND hotplug, the firmware loading is broken. See Gentoo bug #147006 for details.


I have udev-087-r1, and it worked.

Quote:
4309 cards are not supported at this time due to issues with the A PHY. It is being worked on, but there are no patches yet.


Mine is:

Code:
02:02.0 0280: 14e4:4324 (rev 03)
02:02.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4309 802.11a/b/g (rev 03)
        Subsystem: 1028:0003
        Subsystem: Dell Truemobile 1450 MiniPCI
        Control: I/O- Mem+ BusMaster+ SpecCycle- MemWINV- VGASnoop- ParErr- Stepping- SERR+ FastB2B-
        Status: Cap- 66MHz- UDF- FastB2B- ParErr- DEVSEL=fast >TAbort- <TAbort- <MAbort- >SERR- <PERR-
        Latency: 32
        Interrupt: pin A routed to IRQ 19
        Region 0: Memory at faffc000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=8K]


It worked same as ndiswrapper with:
bcmwl5a driver installed, hardware (14E4:4324) present (alternate driver: bcm43xx)

with only an additional "ip l s dev eth2 up" command, and "iwconfig eth2 channel 6" command and substituting device name. Not sure if iwconfig ... channel 6 necessary. Note that I did first start the use with ndiswrapper, then unloaded ndiswrapper module, then went to using broadcom.

I do need and use enc:
Code:
iwconfig eth2 enc restricted 1 9876543210 essid nameofmywap
No problem.

iwlist eth2 scan
iwconfig eth2 ...
both worked.

Just noticed: lsmod still has ndiswrapper after ndiswrapper unloaded. Strange. lsmod:

Route is DEFINATELY via bcm43xx device:

ip r outputs via eth2. eth2 is the bcm43xx device; wlan0 is the ndiswrapper device. Not going via wlan0 now. So working (posting via that now).

Whoa! ping -f shows only difference so far:

sudo ping -f 192.168.0.1 .

Another run with ping -f -s 1472 also gets duplicates, but ask for -s 1473 or above and it is above MTU, fragments, and doesn't duplicate (perhaps defragmenting causes duplicates to be discarded and not reported?).

What do you mean by this?

I have udev-087-r1, and it worked.


Yes, and you probably also have hotplug installed. If you have < udev-096, you need hotplug. If you have >= udev-096, it handles firmware loading instead of hotplug.

4309 cards are not supported at this time due to issues with the A PHY. It is being worked on, but there are no patches yet.


It still locks up for some people. I'm glad it works for you.

Note that I did first start the use with ndiswrapper, then unloaded ndiswrapper module, then went to using broadcom.


Can you try using bcm43xx without ndiswrapper first? It's possible that ndiswrapper correctly setup the radio registers when bcm43xx didn't.

when trying to emerge bcm43xx-fwcutter, it tells me that is masked

i read the man page for emerge but cannot comprehend what i exactly have to do to unmask them and find the keymask (isn't it ppc aswell?)

JoseJX,
One more question. Is 10-pcs patchset included in 2.6.18-gentoo-sources tree? Or do I need to use it in conjunction with the patch provided on the first thread post?

Thank you.

that's what my iwconfig says

Code:
Bebop ~ # iwconfig
eth0      no wireless extensions.

lo        no wireless extensions.

eth1      IEEE 802.11b/g  ESSID:"COPYRIOT C@FE"  Nickname:"Broadcom 4306"
          Mode:Managed  Frequency=2.412 GHz  Access Point: Invalid
          Bit Rate:11 Mb/s   Tx-Power=15 dBm
          RTS thr:off   Fragment thr:off
          Encryption key:off
          Link Quality:0  Signal level:0  Noise level:0
          Rx invalid nwid:0  Rx invalid crypt:0  Rx invalid frag:0
          Tx excessive retries:0  Invalid misc:0   Missed beacon:0


why should access point be invalid? i'm accessing in a free wireless zone, where my airport under osx usually works very very well

Code:
Bebop ~ # dmesg | tail
