Best of luck and welcome to Antix! Anyone have any idea of what to try now?

Im running slackware I’m running antix bradcom public test 1 in an old Dell Inspiron The bcmwl-kernel-source package should automatically blacklist the open source drivers so that the STA driver is the only one in use.

If the version of the driver you are using in the repository is the latest version available as per BroadcomBroadcom wants you to send them an email about this to linux-wlan-client-support-list broadcom. Results 1 to 10 of If you use bcm43xx or b43, you’ll use the fwcutter-tool to “chop” the needed parts from the Windows driver, place them on your system and have the driver work brodacom if it is fully native it is, except for the parts you need to extract from Windows driver.


Once you’ve dealt with that business not sure if dpkg’s package reconfiguring helps, you may broadomdecide if you want to use ndiswrapper or bcm43xx I guess b43 isn’t in Chipst, as you mentioned bcm43xx onlythen fetch the correct Windows drivers for your card and either ndiswrapper or fwcutter ’em, and in case of ndiswrapper remember to blacklist bcm43xx. Well as I previous stated, I had a signal but couldn’t access anything.

If you are having a WiFi issue, please see below on getting this addressed. And how do I get wireless to work?

Broadcom with BCM chipset. Thanks to all that helped Ace. Open a new Terminal and use bfwcutter to extract and install the firmware: This is simply a script to extract and install the b43 driver firmware, maintained by the Ubuntu community. OR the firmware is not installed or what? My hardware isn’t detected?!? I tried installing the latest wireless drivers including b43 from linuxwireless. Acer Aspire WLMi wifi chipet: BB code is On.

For more granular support information, please see their wiki page here. Back to top Switching between drivers If you card is supported by more than one driver then use the chipst command to test the drivers.

Im sorta in the same boat. If it doesn’t, please file a report as per the procedure above.


Originally it was the bcm43xx driver and whether it was through natural selection or due to the fact that I use sid repos It was updated some time ago. Just add ” contrib non-free” to the end of your existing line. That ought to be it. If you need broafcom reset your password, click here.
