Posted on Updated on


This is howto install driver “BCM94311MCG wlan mini-PCI” in my notebook, Compaq Presario V3422TU (V3000 Series)

  1. First step, you must uninstall ndiswrapper & bcm43xx-fwcutter
  2. sudo apt-get remove ndiswrapper-common ndiswrapper-utils-1.9
    sudo apt-get remove bcm43xx-fwcutter

  3. Add bcm43xx to the /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist file
  4. sudo vim /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist
    add this line “blacklist bcm43xx” (without “”)

  5. Reboot
  6. Download driver for BCM94311MCG wlan mini-PCI here ( if this link expire or not found, you can contact me :) )
  7. tar -xzvf WLANBroadcom.tar.gz
    move the folder WLANBroadcom to your home directory
    mv WLANBroadcom/ /home/yourname/

  8. Install ndiswrapper from source :
  9. sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install build-essential
    sudo apt-get install linux-headers-`uname -r`
    sudo ln -s /usr/src/linux-`uname -r` /lib/modules/`uname -r`/build
    mkdir -p ~/bcm43xx/ndiswrapper
    cd ~/bcm43xx/ndiswrapper
    sudo wget http://downloads.sourceforge.net/ndiswrapper/ndiswrapper-1.49.tar.gz
    tar xvzf ndiswrapper-1.49.tar.gz
    cd ndiswrapper*
    make distclean
    make
    sudo make install

  10. Install windows driver (BCM94311MCG wlan mini-PCI) with ndiswrapper
  11. cd /home/yourname/WLANBroadcom/
    sudo ndiswrapper -i bcmwl5.inf
    ndiswrapper -l

    sudo vim /etc/modules
    add this line “ndiswrapper” (without “”)

    sudo modprobe ndiswrapper

    I have been searching for a tutorial that works for my laptop:
    HP DV6500. Most got me little more than the driver supplied in the “restricted driver” portion of Ubuntu. Just odd timeout/irq/tx/rx errors, and no connection at all.

    Now that I have done your instructions, I have wireless!
    Thanks for the post!

    Well, i don’t know if it worked here. iwconfig returned me:
    lo no wireless extensions.

    eth0 no wireless extensions.

    ppp0 no wireless extensions.

    My wireless is not even listed in the ubuntu net manager.

    Well, this is the output of brand new ubuntu gutsy installation.
    Despite i’m terrified with the possibility of re-installing Gutsy(it usually takes a while, till i can setup the system as i like it), i’ll try this tuto again, and will post the results of the commands again.

    Hi!

    I installed the restricted drivers using Ubuntu gutsy (they’re using bcm43xx-cutter), and the wireless card worked, briefly. After rebooting, nothing worked again. Tried your hints with promising results, but something is still wrong.

    The wireless card can’t find any router, although I’m confident there is one within range. Also the LED on the laptop is not activated, as it was briefly when the card did work using restricted drivers.

    $ sudo iwlist wlan0 scan

    Thanks a lot! This made my wl work on HP/Compaq 6720S. At first it didn’t work, but I had an old driver loaded with ndiswrapper, so I had to unload that one with “ndiswrapper -r bcmwl5″ first. Loaded the driver you referred to and now it rocks!

    i need help please

    i have a compaq presario v3418la and i installed gutsy 3 days ago. At the beggining i could no start linux because it stops loading on the loading screen then i red that it may be the wireless card a broadcom bcm94311mcg so i entered this instruction on the boot:
    boot options: pnpbios=off no acpi=off noapic and it worked.

    I followed every step in this blog to install the wifi card but it doesnt work.

    What i could get, was that the LED turned on blue when i quit the instruction boot options: pnpbios=off no acpi=off noapic but it doesnt start.

    Please help

    I ran through the steps… my wifi light is blue, when I boot up my wireless light on the router flashes non-stop for until Ubuntu 7.10 (64 bit) loads the desktop. Then the wireless light on the router stays solid and in Network Manager I see my networks name but I will not connect… my little “connecting” icon does its dance for about 1 minute then I revert back to wired. If I make any changes to add the essid (there is no other security) then Network Manager only shows Wired and Manual Configuration. As soon as I click the check box to make my wireless connection roaming my network shows up again but I can’t connect to it.

    Heres’ the information:

    I was having issues getting ndiswrapper to work properly, so I tried your method. Before I did this, my computer, a HP tx1000z, recognized that my wireless card existed on as “eth1″, but it didn’t function at all. The command iwconfig returned lo and eth0 as non-wireless (correctly) and eth1 as unable to scan. After trying your method, my computer does not recognize that eth1 exists. Here is the output from the last step:

    and also,

    noah@noah-linux:~$ iwconfig
    lo no wireless extensions.

    eth0 no wireless extensions.

    noah@noah-linux:~$

    notice the lack of eth1.

    I’d really appreciate some advice on this…

    Thanks!

    Thank you! Worked great for internal wifi on Lenovo 3000 N200 (Celeron-M) with Ubuntu 7.1.

    Hi folks, I had some problems with my website ( disk space ), but I’ve took care of that .
    I have 20GB of month bandwidth, and my site usually needs around 3-4 GB. That’s 16Gb spare :).

    I’m now uploading driver to the site. I should be there in an hour.

    wow! I was about to give up on Linux completely, after having just given up on Vista as a suitable OS for my HP 530, but this actually works!

    I hit a snag while following the steps above. Any guess as to what would cause this? When I run apt-get update, it lists a bunch of packages and doesn’t install anything new. Kind of weird that apt-get requires me to insert the Ubuntu install CD.

    My wireless modem on my hp2620us did not install properly… I am running 64-bit ubuntu and have had many hardware detect issues. I already ran through all the steps above and I even tried to get the latest ndiswrapper…

    The card did work after reboot the first time… at least I was able to see my wireless network however I could not connect to it.

    any suggestions anyone?

    Below are the suggested tests to give you guys some info… it looks like its installed so why isn’t it working?

    worked great here (dell inspiron 1721 with gutsy). It should be noted that installing ndiswrapper from source wasn’t neccessary. I just had to download the driver and follow the rest of your instruction. Anyways, great intro. Let’s hope the connection gaps will stop now.

    Thanks!

    @ Boris Burtin
    Please copy paste your sources.list :)

    I think you must edit your sources.list, pointing to repository in your country, to more faster update :)

    Acer Extensa 5420 + Gutsy

    Does not work. Interestingly enough, it does not work in an IDENTICAL way with bcm43xx, Gutsy’s ndiswrapper + my working driver from XP (dual booted) and your suggested setup.

    Symptoms: lists networks, when I try to connect to mine (64-bit WEP) it hangs for a minute then rejects the key. A piece of log that I think is relevant:

    Hi

    I have little problem. In area where I live cable internet don’t exist we have only wifi connections. Now I am trying to move myself to ubuntu linux and after instalation I need internet connection according to above manual. I have windows on my machine also but I have no idea how to install packkages which I downloaded on windisck and copied on linux disk.

    I hope I don’t disturb your time :)

    the link to the driver on rapidshare.com is not working right now…maybe that site is just down temporarily, but in case it’s not, does anyone have the tarball that they could post somewhere?

    nevermind, it works again. But maybe it would be a good idea anyway for someone with a less flaky site to host the file where it would be reliable (and not try to make you sign up for an account to download it)…

    As many above it took me to long to get it running!!! That is until I finally found this page. Everything worked perfectly once I followed your how to. I actually had to re-install once because one of the articles completely fragged my network capability. Good to see people that know what they are doing. Thnx

    Thanks a lot. I’ve struggled days tryin’ to configure my card, a bcm4311 rev 2 on my compaq 6720s, and finally found your tutorial. First tried on gOS rocket, and it didn’t work, then on a fresh gutsy install, and now i’m totally happy! It worked very well. Hope that those who got the same problem at least will give a try to this method. I’ve read tons of tutorial and none of them work’d with my card.

    Well, apparently I can’t read directions very well – when I followed these correctly, it worked just fine. The difference: making sure to change ‘version -r’ to my kernel version in a couple of the instructions.

    So, success on AMD-64 version of Ubuntu 7.10 Gutsy, HP tx1000z computer with BCM94311 card.

    Invaleed: you are a genious. I was about to dump the whole Linux thing due to frustration with this wireless adapter. After many attempts elsewhere, yours worked flawlessly. For reference, HP DV2000 laptop. Thank you very much for letting us use your talent.

    I just wanted to say thank you for this help. I was a Linux virgin if you will, and was quite frustrated not being able to get my wireless card to connect. I tried a couple posts and was ready to give up, but then I found this. Thank you kind sir.

    Thanks invaleed!!
    Your steps worked on my HP Pavilion DV6000.
    I have Windows Vista (came with the laptop) and Ubuntu 7.10, clean default installation
    My internet conection is only wifi, so I had to work offline in ubuntu and switch to windows to download the 2 files (nwdiswrapper1.49 and broadcom drivers), links are still working.

    Just 2 remarks:

    – I used “gedit” instead of “vim” in steps 2 and 6 (easier for me :-))
    – In step 5, “linux headers” are already instaled by default and “build-essentials” are in the CDROM of ubuntu and can be istalled with Synaptic easily and offline.

    Thanks a lot. I tried succesfully your “how to” in my brand new Hewlett Packard dv2621la notebook (my second PC), carrying the same device as in your Compaq Presario and using Ubuntu 7.10, my preferred and almost unique operating system used daily (which I have installed in a third partition as the notebook came whith Windows Vista Basic).

    Again thanks a lot for your help, from San Isidro, Buenos Aires, Argentina (SouthAmerica)

    thanks inv, I tried the blacklist thing but a few of those lines took me ages to work out and I had a few false starts!

    Can I just try typing that in again or do I have to go through the whole process again?

    I tried dowloading the driver BCM94311MCG and I can’t. Maybe it is just my incompetence but I would like to get it and get my Gateway MX6453 on wireles and it seems I need this driver.

    Invaleed,

    Thanks for this nice howto. I previously used restricted driver option in ubuntu. But it makes my keyboard hang after rebooting. then I disabled bcm43xx module. After the incident, I decided not to use wireless. But your howto made my future days wireless.

    Thanks a lot.

    @ Alesandra

    Are you already follow my tutorial step by step?

    Try to use ndiswrapper newest version, dont forget to remove restricted driver, and blacklist bcm43xx, and please remove installed driver with “ndiswrapper -r bcmwl5.inf”, coz we want to get fresh driver with newest ndiswrapper…

    ndiswrapper -l to listing the installed driver…

    Good Luck :)

    That worked for me. I have a Dell Inspiron 1526. I did have to do the downloads on a separate machine and then bring them over on a flash drive, so I might suggest since many will not have a working Internet connection while they are following this, change the wget command.

    I want to thank to you too.
    It seems that the bcm43xx-fwcutter from Ubuntu isn’t working well. Many times it fails to get the DHCP address from the Access Point. Now, that I’m following your way it’s working very well.
    Thank you very much :)

    I can now connect the the wireless network, which is hosted by a windows XP desktop computer, but I cannot get internet from it. When I try to get a web page, it loads forever.

    The xp computer is sharing it’s network connection with the wireless network. If I boot this laptop into Vista, I can get internet, but not in Ubuntu.

    if the wireless network is insecure, then it will work, though I want a secure connection.

    raccoon said:
    March 30, 2008 at 3:30 pm

    I fixed it. Ubuntu thought it was a different type of encryption.
    Good tutorial, though you could give more detail on why do to what you say to do. the part in step 5 about the kernel headers was a bit fuzzy. What was ‘uname -r’ supposed to do?

    invaleed responded:
    March 30, 2008 at 3:44 pm

    @ raccoon
    You can change “uname -r” in the tutorial with output “uname -r” via console :)

    For example :

    # uname -r
    2.6.15-xxx

    Then… you can change 5th step in the tutorial with :

    # sudo apt-get install linux-headers-2.6-15xxx
    # sudo ln -s /usr/src/linux-2.6-15xxx /lib/modules/2.6-15xxx/build

    raccoon said:

    I knew I had to replace it with something, I just wasn’t sure what. What did that step do anyway?

    invaleed responded:
    March 31, 2008 at 2:31 am

    IMHO, for compiling ndiswrapper via source, we have to kernel-header installed in the system.. :)

    if you have detected wireless eg: eth1 (from iwconfig)
    than to terminal:
    sudo iwconfig eth1 essid any (or name of network)
    sudo ifup eth1

    and than it was OK
