    re: wireless setup - start here


    I've had Fedora for about 3 days now, and it's been kinda slow because I don't have any network access from my Fedora Core 10 running laptop (I'm using an dial-up connected desktop & a usb stick)

    I read somewhere that this guide would work with Fedora (HOWTO: Dell Inspiron E1505 Wireless (Broadcom 1390 WLAN) - Ubuntu Forums) would work. I got up to the point where you need to distclean ndiswrapper, but i would get the error:

    # sudo make distclean
    make -C driver clean
    make{1}: Entering directory `/home/myname/Desktop/ndiswrapper-1.54/driver'
    rm -f *.o *.ko .*.cmd *.mod.c *.symvers modules.order *~ .\#*
    rm -f *_exports.h win2lin_stubs.h
    rm -rf .tmp_versions
    make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/myname/Desktop/ndiswrapper-1.54/driver'
    make -C utils clean
    make[1]: Entering directory `/home/myname/Desktop/ndiswrapper-1.54/utils'
    rm -f *~ *.o loadndisdriver
    make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/myname/Desktop/ndiswrapper-1.54/utils'
    rm -f *~
    rm -fr ndiswrapper-1.54 ndiswrapper-1.54.tar.gz patch-stamp
    make -C driver distclean
    make[1]: Entering directory `/home/myname/Desktop/ndiswrapper-1.54/driver'
    make[1]: *** No rule to make target `distclean'. Stop.
    make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/myname/Desktop/ndiswrapper-1.54/driver'
    make: *** [distclean] Error 2



    So I have ndiswrapper 1.54, and the dell driver for a card I can't find on Fedora, but IO saw in windows (when I had it). The card is called Del Wireless 1390 WLAN MiniCard.

    This is what I got from the lspci -nn command:

    Also I have downloaded the necessary files from the link in dmesg | greps firmware, but the first instruction for my kernel version won't accept the `make' command. I've also tried the second instruction but "sudo ../../" isn't a command.

    Unhappy

    Thanks, but I don't have a network connection, so I can't get it.
    I get the error:

    cur: (6) Couldn't resolve host 'dnmouse.org'
    error: skipping http://dnmouse.org/b43-2-3.fc10.noarch.rpm - transfer fail

    I do have a dial-up connection on my desktop, but I can't get it to work on my laptop, which is where I have Fedora. I also don't know how to get dial-up onto my laptop, as we just plug the desktop into the wall and the connection works. That doesn't work for the laptop, neither does plugging the laptop into the desktop.

    Any other ideas?

    Hi

    Your best option for this card is to use the b43 driver instead of NDISwrapper. You should completely uninstall NDISwrapper, and make sure it isn't loading at boot, by looking for it in the output of lsmod, with this command.
    Code:
    lsmod | grep ndiswrapper
    If it returns nothing, then it is not loaded.

    Since you do not have a working internet connection, you will have to download the b43-fwcutter application, and the firmware package, and transfer it to the Fedora installation. A package for the b43-fwcutter application can be downloded from Fedora:

    ftp://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub...3.fc9.i386.rpm

    I see that it is labled fc9, but it comes from the Fedora 10 directory so it must be OK. You also need the firmware package. It can be downloaded with this link:
    http://downloads.openwrt.org/sources...0.53.0.tar.bz2

    Transfer those files to your Fedora installation. Then install the b43-fwcutter application. First gain root privileges by using the su command.
    Code:
    su <enter>
    Password:
    Enter your root password, it will remain hidden as you enter it, then hit the enter key. Now go to the folder that contains the rpm file, using the cd command, and then install the package.
    Code:
    rpm -Uvh b43-fwcutter-011-3.fc9.i386.rpm
    Now unpack the compressed firmware file. You need to cd to the folder containing that file, and run this command.
    Code:
    tar xvfj broadcom-wl-4.80.53.0.tar.bz2
    This will create a folder named broadcom-wl-4.80.53.0. You need to cd to the kmod folder in it, and extract the firmware from the wl_apsta.o file. First, you need to include the path to the firmware file in the command. Mine is in this folder: /home/paul/Download/broadcom-wl-4.80.53.0/kmod/ , so I would include that in the command.

    Now you can extract the firmware, using b43-fwcutter. On my system, this command with the directory locations, worked. You will need to change the directory path for your system.
    Code:
     b43-fwcutter -w /lib/firmware/ /home/paul/Download/broadcom-wl-4.80.53.0/kmod/wl_apsta.o
    After installing, reboot and set up the card as a new network card using the "Network" program found in the main menu.

    When I was finished, I found that the /lib/firmware/b43 folder had different file permissions than other folders in the same directory. This meant that I couldn't easily check that the firmware files were correctly installed. To fix the folder permissions, run this command as root.
    Code:
    chmod 755 /lib/firmware/b43/
    This gives it the same permissions as all the other folders in that directory.
