Drivers/b. 43 - Linux Wirelessb. Broadcom produces. Note: Broadcom USB devices are handled by the brcmfmac driver. BCM4. 30. 6 Rev 2 and cards that have only 8. Kernel automatically loads correct driver for the present hardware (it checks for revision of the 8. Please read this whole document and the FAQ before asking questions to the developers.
Caveats. The b. 43/b. If you have a Broadcom USB device, it's most likely a Full. MAC device. See rndis_wlan for 1. The b. 43/b. 43legacy driver is not meant to support such a device. It is possible to use only one driver at a moment, they are conflicting each other.
See Switching between drivers for howto on choosing driver. Known issues. LP- PHY devices: DMA errors on some machines with kernel 2. Problem was fixed in 3.
Using PIO (module param) can be used as workaround for 2. BCM4. 31. 8 chipset: AP mode does not work because of packet loss in high transmission rates. Hard to debug & fix. BCM4. 32. 1: some cards do not work in DMA mode with kernel 3. Problem was fixed in 3. A workaround for older kernel is to use PIO mode (b. G- PHY devices: not working with kernels 3.
This was fixed in 3. Supported devices. To find out whether a PCI device is supported by the b. The command will output a string similar to this example: 0. Network controller [0. Broadcom Corporation BCM4.
Hi guys! just installed hardy (on my compaq presario f700) and its really cool. everything works xcept the wireless driver. i really need help with this cos its the. Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. Join them; it only takes a minute: Sign up.

Note that the PCI- ID is not in direct correlation with the Chip ID. Often the PCI- ID equals the Chip ID, but that is not always the case and it is a constant source of confusion.

MHz channels 5 GHz band Device firmware installation. The Broadcom wireless chip needs proprietary software (called "firmware") that runs on the wireless chip itself to work properly. This firmware is copyrighted by Broadcom and must be extracted from Broadcom's proprietary drivers. To get such firmware on your system, you must download the driver from a legal distribution point, extract it, and install it.
