Fedora Wireless

Recommended Posts

Hey all,

 

well I installed fedora core 6 :D and my internal network and orinoco card don't work :(

 

my Internet Wireless card gets picked up as lspci shows:

 

06:02.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4311 [AirForce 54g] 802.11a/b/g PCI Express Transceiver (rev 02)

 

However when trying to active it via neat I get the following error messages:

 

Oct 24 21:55:06 localhost kernel: SoftMAC: empty ratesinfo?
Oct 24 21:55:06 localhost kernel: SoftMAC: empty ratesinfo?
Oct 24 21:55:06 localhost kernel: bcm43xx: set security called, .active_key = 0, .level = 1, .enabled = 1, .encrypt = 1
Oct 24 21:55:06 localhost kernel: SoftMAC: Associate: Scanning for networks first.
Oct 24 21:55:06 localhost kernel: SoftMAC: Associate: failed to initiate scan. Is device up?
Oct 24 21:55:06 localhost kernel: bcm43xx: PHY connected

Oct 24 21:55:06 localhost kernel: bcm43xx: Error: Microcode "bcm43xx_microcode5.fw" not available or load failed.
Oct 24 21:55:06 localhost kernel: bcm43xx: core_up for active 802.11 core failed (-2)

 

I can also see my orinoco card in lspci:

 

07:00.0 Ethernet controller: Atheros Communications, Inc. AR5211 802.11ab NIC (rev 01)

 

However this is not picked up with the neat or if I issue the iwconfig command I only see the

internal wireless card.

 

Any ideas?

just hazarding a guess that you need ndiswrapper for the broadcom card (bcm)

 

then

 

bcm43xx-fwcutter -w /lib/firmware BCMWL564.SYS

 

try it

 

cheers
