View Full Version : broadcom-wl not working
10th August 2009, 08:03 PM
I have a broadcom 4322 with the broadcom-wl driver on Fedora 11. It worked the first time I used it, and since then is unable to detect any networks. I've tried reinstalling the driver, and it still does not work. Any suggestions?

Any suggestions?Hello d00n3h,
1. Is there a on/off or antenna switch on the card or computer somewhere that could have been switched off? It happens all the time.
2. Was a yum update done? It's not unheard of for new kernels to bust things like wireless. Try rebooting into the previous kernel.
3. Are you dual-booting Windows? Windows is known to sometimes disable wireless cards on shutdown making them not work when the computer is rebooted into Linux. That can be disabled in Windows. Or, try powering down and booting into Fedora without first booting into Windows.
4. What else do you remember happening between the time it worked and stopped working (e.g., tinkering in NetworkManager or its config files, tinkering in the old Network Configuration utility aka system-config-network, etc.)

It was Windows disabling it on shutdown. Works fine now. Thanks a lot for the help :)
