    BroadCom Bcm4318 Wireless Help


    I currently have a BroadCom BCM4318 Wireless Card on my box, when I boot off Backtrack 3 it automatically detects the card and lets me access a network. Now I tried to do a raw install with Suse Linux 10 Enterprise Edition and I have been so frustrated with the results. I use the lspci command and it shows the BroadCom is connected, but does nothing about it. I then resorted to ndiswrapper and wrapped the driver and ndiswrapper -i worked fine and i checked and it said the driver was present and installed, then I tried modprobe ndiswrapper but it says: FATAL: ndiswrapper module does not exist. or something of the so, i continued on and i threw the ndiswrapper as the module name for the yast2 network configuration. And I fired up Kwifimanager and it doesnt show that it has detected any wireless interface. Can someone please shoot me in the head? and helpp?

    Also, I really want to use Backtrack 3 on my laptop. Can someone point to a great USB Wireless Card that works like plugin n' play for backtrack 3 and suse 10 on Amazon thats cheap[under $50].
    THanks in advance.

    The Broadcom bcm4318 chip in Linux uses the b43 driver module. It is usually loaded by default, because the system will recognize the chip and load the b43 module.

    To work in Linux, the b43 module requires firmware to first be loaded. This firmware is proprietary software, and is not included in most Linux distributions. I would guess that Backtrack is one that does include it.

    The firmware is rather easy to install, and I would not choose my distro on whether it has it or not. To be sure that this is the problem, run this command.
    Code:
    dmesg | grep firmware
    The error output actually should have the instructions on what to do. Go to this web site, and follow the instructions for installing the firmware.

    I got as far as sucessful compiling the driver using ndiswrapper and I used the depreciated version of bcm43(bcm43xx) for the firmware and successfully extracted everything to the /lib/firmware location.

    Now KWifiManager has a better time detecting and scanning networks, but my problem is connecting to one. I checked with iwconfig and I got this result:

    Code:
    wlan0     IEEE 802.11g  ESSID:off/any  Nickname:"linux"
              Mode:Managed  Frequency:2.412 GHz  Access Point: 00:00:00:00:00:00
              Bit Rate=54 Mb/s   Tx-Power:25 dBm
              RTS thr=2347 B   Fragment thr=2346 B
              Encryption key:off
              Power Management:off
              Link Quality:100/100  Signal level:-10 dBm  Noise level:-256 dBm
              Rx invalid nwid:0  Rx invalid crypt:0  Rx invalid frag:0
              Tx excessive retries:0  Invalid misc:0   Missed beacon:0

    I configured Network Devices so the module name was ndiswrapper and I clicked User Controlled presuming thats how KWifiManager would allow me to connect.

    I am not sure if I should've used the depreciated drivers but the other drivers said for kernel version 2.6.25 and I used the command uname -r and got: 2.6.13.15-smp so I decided to use the depricated versions instead which are the older driver versions.

    What am I doing wrong? And thanks in regards. This means alot. =]

    NDISwrapper is a completely different driver than b43. They can both be used for the same wireless cards, but they are not compatible.

    NDISwrapper was developed at a time when wireless drivers for Linux were not "mature" yet. It uses the WinXP driver to make a wireless work. It doesn't need any firmware added, as it is already in the WinXP driver.

    The b43 driver is the most recent Broadcom wireless driver. It is much improved over the bcm43xx driver, which is no longer used. The b43 driver requires that firmware be installed in /lib/firmware/, or /lib/firmware/b43/. The location of the firmware is different,depending on the distro. See the output of this command for any firmware errors.
    Code:
    dmesg | grep firmware
    You need to decide which driver you want to use, NDISwrapper or b43, and remove the one that you don't use. I recommend the b43 driver with firmware installation.

    The command dmseg | grep firmware didnt return any error or display anything...=/

    And as of the weblink you sent me, I followed the instructions and after using fwcutter to extract the content files of wl_apsta.o what exactly I do? Cause after using fwcutter it just extracts all the stuff into the firmware directory.

    I tried to see if Yast2 had my wireless card or something in it's "select from list" feature but I really didnt see anything that looked like what it should've been.

    btw... running a 64bit machine would make a difference because I THINK i have a 64bit machine but i installed the suse 10 32bit. I am not much sure bout either. =P

    thanks.

    Let's start from the beginning. Please post the outputs of the following commands, so I can diagnose it better.
    Code:
    lspci -nn
    Code:
    lsusb
    Code:
    lsmod
    Code:
    dmesg
    I know some of these are big, but post them anyway.

    I forgot to add this. As for the 32-bit OS on a 64-bit system. If a 32-bit OS is installed, as far as Linux is concerned you have a 32-bit system.

    Thanks

    The lspci -nn command should have given a more detailed output. Try it again without the -nn option.
    Code:
    lspci
    Post the output again.

    Never mind the lspci output, I have enough.

    Here is the wireless card:
    Code:
    06:00.0 Class 0280: 14e4:4318 (rev 02)
    And here is the module loaded for it:
    Code:
    Module                  Size  Used by
    ndiswrapper           176308  0
    And here are the system messages confirming the creation of the wireless wlan0:
    Code:
    ndiswrapper: module not supported by Novell, setting U taint flag.
    ndiswrapper version 1.2 loaded (preempt=no,smp=yes)

    It looks to me that all you need to do is to set up the wireless as a new network card. Do this in YaST, and if there is the option (somewhere) in the configuration section to use NetworkManager to control the cards, select yes. It is much easier to use NetworkManager to connect to wireless networks.

    I think that you are almost there!

    Good Luck

    EDIT: NetworkManager will be running in the system tray. Just click on the icon to connect to a network. Give it the needed info, and let it save it to a keyring.
