Wifi BCM4306 rev03 not working in Ubuntu 10.04
  

i was under Ubuntu 9.10 and my broadcom 4306 chipset worked perfectly using the installation of proprietary drivers. But passing my Ubuntu 10.04 Wi-Fi no longer works. I saw that the ATK drivers were included in the kernel but my chipset is not one. I have a BCM4306 ver 3 in a Compaq Presario R3000. I tried installing the drivers for proprios but nothing happens. Does anyone have a solution for this chipset? Upgrade to later versions does not solve the problem so hopefully we can find a solution that I could also apply to the next LTS! I have already installed bcmwl modaliases-b43-fwcutter and if it can help someone. I checked that I was not in my blacklist b43 (bcm43xx it is against) and I put b43 to load at startup in case it could help me. My button for wireless is not working (always off) and before that (Ubuntu 9.10 and before) it was almost always on.

Would it be possible that this is a problem due to the wifi button. Is it possible to discover the address of this button and associate a keyboard shortcut to activate the wifi. At the same time, the wifi working with Ubuntu 9.10.

I tried an upgrade to 10.4 to 10.10 on my system but I had big problem with the nvidia video card and the system was very unstable (Ubuntu stopped in the middle of boot). And it did not solve the problem of installing the wireless. I would have to find a solution that can be applied to the next LTS.

I hope we will eventually find what is happening. This may be just my button does not work and I should activate the software or keyboard shortcut.

Still no WiFi. I wonder if it can run under 11.10. The problem is that trying a live CD, you must reboot to see if the WiFi was enabled. I would have to reserve a partition for testing the betas and other versions of ubuntu. Unless someone can help me find the commands to operate on my BCM4306 Rev3 10.04 (hoping that the method is still running 12.04).

Re: Wifi BCM4306 rev03 not working in Ubuntu 10.04

Since I use Ubuntu 10.04 I have not gotten the wifi to work. As the cable connection goes well, I've been looking from time to time, but I always left at the bottom of the drawer, but I put it hand once. It worked well with version 9.04, works with Windows XP and works with the Ubuntu Live CD. After much reading in Google and review the mail from other users, this list on the subject and I still try the solutions offered without my work.

I have UBUNTU 11.10 and 10.04 could not get the drivers from the Canon i250 printer. I installed a program called TurboPrint I worked perfectly, the problem is that it is a trial version expires and when I print a watermark program in all my impressions, I would not like. If anyone has a way to include the correct drivers in the Ubuntu printer list I would appreciate. I notice that I am not an advanced user, I'm just discovering the wonderful world of linux, so have a little patience.
