Please include only one not both of the following corresponding to which driver series you are filing a report against: Thanks for the help. It maybe offered on the jockey Additional Drivers list, though I don’t see any reason why anyone would prefer ‘wl’ over ‘brcmsmac’ now. One more detail is that since I switched to brcmsmac I see this message when booting: Now verify to see what is the loaded kernel driver in use.

So, I’m marking this bug report as ‘Fix Released’ for Precise. This bug affects 5 people.

To post a comment you must log in. I use Nvidia M optimus chipset, and I found frequent freeze of the X windowing system.

If you see the message “Module build for the currently running kernel was skipped since the kernel source for this kernel does not seem to be installed” then you are missing the appropriate generic linux-header package s. I didn’t install “linux- firmware- nonfree”but “lsmod” told me I have ubunru module b43, is this normal? ubunyu

Sorry, I made a mistake. Back to top b43 – No Internet access If you do not have any other means of Internet access from Ubuntu, then you will have to download the firmware from another computer with Internet access, from 4133 existing OS on another partition, or before you install Ubuntu.

I noticed an error as follows:. Broadcom Corporation BCM Join Date Jul Beans 1. See if it offers you the b43 firmwareununtu so install it. Furthermore the test suite now covers this test case. To test the driver and remove the need for a computer restart use: Giorgio Vitanza 80 1 1 9. If so, which one s specifically? On newer kernel versions, ubunth works better than ‘wl’. I had a lot of trouble with this problem a few years ago. I had some problems installing Ubuntu. I am unable to connect to WiFi on my Nexus 5.

I did the test case on my Ubuntu My wifi failed to work, or even load. It didn’t install bcmwl-kernel- source. If you are having a WiFi issue, please see below on getting this addressed.


It is maintained upstream here. Hello HEXcube, or anyone else affected, Accepted jockey into precise-proposed. Autoinstalling the ‘wl’ driver would actually be a “downgrade” of functionality.
