I have installed Porteus 5.2 RC xface in my laptop hard disk partition. However, no wifi at all. . I feel it is not detecting wifi.
My hardware is Broadcom Corporation BCM4312 802.11b/g LP-PHY. How to connect wifi. Please give simple solutions.

Hi nnriyer,
Copy the module b43-firmware-classic-5.100.138-1-noarch.xzm to the Porteus modules folder (eg /mnt/sdb1/porteus/modules) and restart Porteus. Check wifi.
*where is sdb1 partition with your Porteus

If wifi does not work, then run the commands in the terminal and copy output in this topic:

check wifi.

nnriyer, ok, remove b43-firmware-classic-5.100.138-1-noarch.xzm from modules folder
and copy this module b43-firmware-6.30.163.46-fw-1_SBo.xzm to modules folder and reboot your PC.

If look at these comments https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/b43-firmware/

for example:

Sir, Unable to copy as instructed by you. I also attempted to save module directory. However, not able to save module directory due to insufficient permission. Last time no issue. Now copying is not possible. I donot know the reasons. Anyway how to copy/save to firmware to module directory. Sorry for the trouble.

Right click of your mouse on the modules folder and choose Open as root (or something like that)

Blaze, I believe I had Wi-Fi operating on my iMac running Porteus 3.2 XFCE, but lost it under 4.0. Under Porteus 5.0rc2 with your updated kernel, I booted "baseonly" with each of your suggested modules, but never had Wi-Fi access. Booted with b43-firmware-classic-5.100.138-1-noarch.xzm in /base, the results of the diagnostic commands is

I can see wireless networks with that module loaded, but I can't connect; it always times out.

[Solved] No Wifi connection Broadcom Corporation BCM4312 802.11b/g LP-PHY [14e4:4315] (rev 01)

Post#13 by Blaze » 17 Aug 2020, 17:39

rchase, strange, because all looks good..., probably do you have router logs that you try to connect (I mean access point).
Not bad to look at logs of your access point.

Ok, remove all previous modules with Broadcom and try two modules (one of them include all latest linux firmwares)
The size of the modules is huge :)
  1. kernel-firmware-nonfree-20200721.xzm
  2. linux-firmware-20200817.xzm - https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/ke ... rmware.git
  3. kernel-firmware-20200817_7a30af1-noarch-1.txz
Not bad if you run:

Code: Select all
