issues with Xubuntu 11.04 and Dynex Wireless Enhanced G Notebook Card

Asked by Genny on 2011-05-28

I recently intalled Xubuntu 11.04 on my friend, Dean's laptop. We originally installed Ubuntu but the computer was being too slow since the computer is a bit old, but we were able to get the Dynex Wireless Enhanced G Notebook Card (model # DX-WGPNBC) working after a bit of troubleshooting. However, since installing Xubuntu we cannot get the wireless card working at all.

The only way Dean can get internet right now is if he is hard-wired in, but that's not practical since he doesn't have a had-wired connection at this house, as he only relies on wireless at coffee shops/library. How about can we get this wireless card working? Any ideas would greatly be appreciated. Thanks,
Genny (on behalf of Dean)

John Weintraub (johnweintraub) said : #3

The commands to be typed start with the letter "l" which is the letter after "k" and before "m"; "l" as in Lima, Loser, Ligature, Lyrics

So the proper commands are LSPCI, but in lower case, as in lspci; and LSUSB, but in lower case, as in lsusb

I hope that makes things clearer

Thanks for providing the output of lspci and lsusb.

The key to this solution is the output line that reads:
03:00.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4318 [AirForce One
54g] 802.11g Wireless LAN Controller (rev 02)
(That line tells us the exact chipset of your wireless card = BCM4318)

Based on that info I've searched around for good instructions, and this
set of instructions seems to be correct. (Please note that I have not
personally tested them though.)

Please go here:

https://help.ubuntu.com/community/WifiDocs/Driver/bcm43xx

In you have internet access on the system that is having the issues,
follow the instructions in the section entitled "Installing b43 drivers"
(This section begins about half way down the page.)

In you do not have internet access on the system that is having the
issues, follow the instructions in the section entitled "b43 - No
Internet access"

Hope this helps.

Cheers,
Randall.

No problem for the help. Can I ask you do you have a wired connection to the internet (I.e., to a Shaw cable modem, TELUS ADSL modem or router, or other ISP)?

I assume your first name is dean? Look, Dean, I reviewed that page you can't understand and a very important part of it requires an existing/established internet connection. So either (1) you have to have a WIRED (physical) connection where you currently use your laptop and ensure that you can surf the web (that will allow the download process that you need to happen to actually happen, even though it's not a web-based process) or (2) get yourself to a friend's place where you can set up a WIRED connection (using an Ethernet cable plugged into their router) or (3) get yourself (beg or borrow) a USB wireless connection device that you can use to connect at a free Wi-Fi location such as McDonalds or Starbucks or (4) come to FreeGeek Vancouver on Wednesday nights (6-30 to about 9:30, though in reality in often runs later than that, YOU would need to get there as early as possible because it can get busy; the place is an ethical recycling non-profit, and they specialize in installing and therefore supporting Ubuntu Linux, and I volunteer there every Wednesday except the last Wednesday of the month). It's located at 1820 Pandora Street, just north and west of Victoria and Hastings..

You really will not be able to proceed without an established/establishable internet connection where you can GUARANTEE you can access the internet. Just getting a signal is not sufficient. You need connectivity in order to make this work.

Okay?

No worries Dean. Just let us know which way you want to proceed. I can certainly help you this way via email, especially if you can print out the emails with my specific instructions so you can read them as you type them. The fact is you will have to use a terminal session (meaning using BASH) and it can become a real pain in the rear end to have to toggle back and forth between an email and the terminal session. Far better to have the instructions printed off so you can read them as you type. Perhaps, if you should choose options one, two or three, to then forward the instructions (that I haven't yet given you as you haven't decided how to proceed) to a friend and have that friend print them out for you.

Dean;

I haven't heard from you in a long while I spoke with your friend (whose name escapes me at this moment) at a UVLC event. Do you want more help via email, or would you prefer to come in next Wednesday (tonight is fine, but I won't be there but many capable tech volunteers will be) at FreeGeek Vancouver Open Help Night? 1820 Pandora Street 6:30 PM start, but bet to be there on time or even early.

Cheers JJW
