Broadcom Wifi working great

Your new file would blacklist "wl",if existing. 4.0 doesn't support wifi on netbook. 3.2.2 does. (Post by jssouza #67440) The file does actually un-blacklist the other drivers. (which are commented out in the original file) An empty file would have the same effect - if i'm not completely mistaken. (...

Using on Vista pc

I running XFCE
same do i
I have found no other entry dealing with network
There should be a netwok (manager) icon in the panel (top right)
iwlist scan shows lots of networks along with mine
This clearly indicates that the wifi is up and running.

OK, back to porteus 4.0 4.0 doesn't have the wl driver so we do not need to blacklist. remove /etc/modprobe.d/b43_blacklist.conf and broadcom_blacklist.conf (or commend out the blacklisted files) ( make a backup copy first!) start USM usm -g b43 and fetch the firmware > activate the module run modpr...

Using on Vista pc

Porteus 4.0 doesn't ship the proprietary wl.ko driver so all of the free drivers shouldn't be blacklisted in b43_blacklist.conf and broadcom_blacklist.conf. ( the module contains corrected files ) However, The information I found says that it should work with the b43 driver, but it may work with the...

While searching if this wifi issue has already be solved, I found this module:
https://yadi.sk/d/oyKc96JN3VpL6e%5Burl
It contains some firmware files and the modified blacklisting files.
Copy it into the modules folder > reboot and, fingers crossed, the wifi will work.

Using on Vista pc

Good start,but not verbose enough.
try:
lspci -vnn | grep -i net
to get the textual and numeric ID's (names & numbers)

It may be that only a certain firmware is missing
grep -i firm /var/log/dmesg
Look for the usual suspects like "failed to load.." etc.

lspci -knn will show which driver is used.

Some quotes from the i-net (personally, I know next to nothing about python) .py - Regular script .pyc - compiled script (Bytecode) .pyo - optimized pyc file (As of Python3.5, Python will only use pyc rather than ...
