    Thumbs down Internet doesn't work on any Linux Distribution???


    First of all, I've searched a lot on the internet for this problem, but can't find any help.

    I've tried 3 Linux distributions now: Ubuntu, Mint, Fedora, and on all of them, I have the same problem, when I connect to the internet it only works for a short time, and then it stops working, and now I even can't reconnect. My computer is dual boot.

    Things I've tried:
    Install WICD Network manager (Doesn't work)
    Restart Router/Modem.
    Restart WIFI connection on Linux.

    I'll appreciate any help!
    Thanks.

    Thanks. Linux is installed on its own partition installed from a live CD that I've burned. Here's the code:

    Ok

    I don't run rpm distros or Fedora 18

    wireless chip is Broadcom Corporation BCM4313 802.11b/g/n Wireless LAN Controller (rev 01)

    wlan0 shows up as your wireless interface. Network manager shows wlan0 is in it.

    Hopefully someone that runs Fedora will chime in here late on, just be patient.
    I don't see why you can't connect wireless in Netowrk manager though. wlan0=wireless
    is there.

    Broadcom is notoriously awkward but it sounds like you just need to install the drivers. The comments have a few useful things to try in the case this doesn't work. It's also worth having a read though this.

    First of all thanks for your replies. This may be a very, very stupid question but how do I install the drivers? elija: Thanks for the link but when I type that in the Terminal it just says that there is no package called kmod-wl. I tried to type
    Code:
    sudo yum install kmod
    but then it just said that already was installed!

    First of all, you need to set up the rpm fusion repositories which is where the drivers will be stored which needs the root password

    Code:
    su -c 'rpm -Uvh http://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/fedora/rpmfusion-free-release-stable.noarch.rpm'
    su -c 'rpm -Uvh http://download1.rpmfusion.org/nonfree/fedora/rpmfusion-nonfree-release-stable.noarch.rpm'
    Then you need to make sure that you have updated the package list which needs the user password
    Code:
    sudo yum update
    Then you install which will again require the user password.
    Code:
    sudo yum install kmod-wl
    If it is still not finding the package, try
    Code:
    sudo yum search broadcom
    to see what's available

    I tried all the commands, but it still doesn't work. The first code installed something, so that worked, the second worked too, but the third and the fourth didn't work. kmod-wl still doesn't exist, and if I try to install the first result after the sudo yum seach broadcom it says that it is already installed.

    Having re-read this thread, it seems that the wifi is working for a while which despite being right in front of me, I completely missed the other day

    It's an unusual symptom for it but I wonder if IPV6 is the cause of the problem. To turn it off, edit your connections using Network manager and then under your wireless connections IPV6 settings, change the drop down to Ignore.
