b43-phy0 ERROR: Firmware file "b43/ucode5.fw" not found -> BCM4306 wireless chipset not working in Ubuntu 8.10

Asked by jomccaslin on 2009-01-07

I recently installed Ubuntu 8.10 on my PC. My wireless internet connection works perfectly fine when i boot windows xp but when i boot ubuntu I can't figure out how to connect. I've looked at many forums, and most include going to the menu: System->administration->network or networking. I don't even have that option, all I have is system->administration->network tools. It seems to be completely unrelated. I've tried going through the help on ubuntu's site. I used the command "sudo lshw -C network" in the terminal and in the output is included "disabled", but I make sure that the router/modem is on so I don't know what to do-the help forum stops there. It's rather frustrating and it would be great if I could get some help. Thanks!

Hi,

Your wireless issue is identical to this one:

I think you are experiencing this bug:

https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/b43-fwcutter/+bug/197819

Please try this workaround solution:

b43-fwcutter exists in the Ubuntu repositories, but you will need a working Internet connection in Ubuntu in order to install it.

Steven Bowman (kts1442) said : #4

Hi, I'm VERY new to using anything other than Windows. So, even though I did BASIC back in HS 20 years ago, I have no idea what I'm looking at here. I am having a problem with my wireless card.

I read through the entire posting here and just started at the top, I've run the first command list from Mark Rijckenberg at the top and include my results below. I really don't get all of this, but I do like the fact that it all seems to work much faster than the 'other 'W' word I listed above. Thanks in advance for any assistance and the initial education.

Take care,
Steve

Mark,
When I enter the command "sudo apt-get --purge remove b43-fwcutter" I get
the message that the computer is unable to locate b43-fwcutter. Any ideas?

Hi,

This should mean that b43-fwcutter is not installed yet on your pc.

Please skip the purge command and proceed with the following commands:

sudo aptitude update
sudo aptitude install b43-fwcutter

b43-fwcutter exists in the Ubuntu repositories, but you will need a working Internet connection in Ubuntu in order to locate it and install it.

The only way to do that - in your case - is to connect the pc to the wireless router using a LAN cable, instead of using wireless.

Regards,

Mark

jomccaslin (jomccaslin) said : #8

I performed this and it did something, but when I unplug the LAN cable there
are still no networks recognized under wireless networks. It says there are
239 updates I could install-do you think installing some of these would
help? Maybe it's working and I just need to do something so that the house
wireless network is recognized.

Hi,

Yes, please follow this procedure to install the updates:

Step 1: Open Terminal from "Applications->Accessories->
Terminal"

Step 2: Run the following commands (type each then hit <enter>)

sudo aptitude update
sudo aptitude dist-upgrade

Step 3: Reboot pc and then retest wireless.

Regards,

Mark

jomccaslin (jomccaslin) said : #10

I was in the midst of installing updates and the computer froze, so I turned
it off and started it again. Now it tells me I have to run dpkg --configure
-a to correct this. But when I do that, it says I need superuser privileges.
. . I don't know what to do. Now it seems that my wireless is actually
working, but I still can't quite connect. I may need the modem, because I
think it said something about missing that.
