debian(lenny) wireless doesn't work after reboot.
My chipset is Broadcom 4311
$ lspci|grep Network
01:00.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4311 802.11b/g WLAN (rev 02)
I follows this link to setup wireless
Everything is fine. I got neighbouring wireless networks after finishing those steps.
But after I reboot, it seems the setting is gone. There is no wireless network.
When I checked /var/log/messages, the following warning words show up every few seconds:
Nov 1 21:36:16 Debian kernel: [ 268.307305] input: b43-phy0 as /class/input/input19
Nov 1 21:36:16 Debian kernel: [ 268.366991] firmware: requesting b43/ucode13.fw
Each after reboot, I have to manually type:
#ifconfig eth1 up
to get it work. And the above warning words appeared.
PS: I use "eth1" instead of "wlan0" because when I type "iwconfig" it shows:
lo no wireless extensions.
eth0 no wireless extensions.
