b43-phy0 ERROR: FOUND UNSUPPORTED PHY (Analog 8, Type 4, Revision 4) -> Wireless Network controller [0280]: Broadcom Corporation BCM4322 802.11a/b/g/n Wireless LAN Controller [14e4:432b] (rev 01) not working on HP TouchSmart tx2-1020us in Ubuntu 10.04.1 LTS

Asked by Conan Librarian on 2010-10-05

I just installed Ubuntu 10.04.1 LTS (Lucid Lynx) on my Tablet PC and have been unable to obtain wireless connectivity.

Here are the specs for my Tablet PC:

HP TouchSmart tx2-1020us
AMD Turion X2 Ultra Dual-Core Mobile ZM-82 2.20GHz
RAM 4GB
Broadcom 4322AG 802.11a/b/g/draft-n WiFi Adapter

The system detected my Broadcom adapter and recommended I install a driver for it. I followed the instructions for installation but my machine still does not connect with wireless networks.

Please advise.

Hi,

Please first connect your network card to the wireless router using an ethernet cable (also known as a LAN cable).

In order to gather essential troubleshooting information about your wireless card, please follow this procedure:

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

Step 2: Please copy-paste the following command from the https://answers.launchpad.net/ubuntu website in Firefox into the Linux Terminal. Do NOT copy-paste from the Email message into the Terminal, as that will only copy PART of the command. The command STARTS with the word sudo and ENDS with the word restart. So please copy-paste the ENTIRE command below from Firefox into a Terminal, press <enter>, then enter password when sudo asks for password, then press enter again.

Tip: If you have a wheel mouse or 3 button mouse you do not need to type commands into the Terminal. Highlight the command written on the page. Move your cursor anywhere in the Terminal and press the wheel or middle button. Automatic Copy and paste! No spelling mistakes! No Typos! No other errors!

sudo apt-get update; sudo apt-get install hwinfo grep; sudo lshw -C network; rfkill list; sudo iwlist scanning; cat /etc/network/interfaces; cat /etc/lsb-release; lspci -nn; lsusb; sudo lshw -short; uname -a; dmesg | egrep 'acx|at76|ath|b43|bcm|CX|eth|ipw|irmware|isl|lbtf|ndiswrapper|NPE|ound|prism|rtl|rt2|rt3|usb|witch|wl'; iwconfig; grep b43 /etc/modprobe.d/*; grep wl /etc/modprobe.d/*; sudo hwinfo --netcard ; sudo lsmod; cat /var/lib/NetworkManager/NetworkManager.state; sudo /etc/init.d/networking restart

Step 3: Please post results (copy/paste terminal output) on this thread. The troubleshooters here need to see the full Terminal output from running the above command.

Regards,

Mark

Hi,

You need to install the following Broadcom driver package using aptitude or Synaptic package manager: bcmwl-kernel-source

This will of course require a working wirED Internet connection in Ubuntu. (wired, not wireless)

For example: using the Terminal, you need to run the following commands to install bcmwl-kernel-source:

sudo aptitude update
sudo aptitude install bcmwl-kernel-source

Then reboot and retest wireless using Network Manager.

A similar explanation can be found at the end of this thread:

Thank you for the guidance. I now have wireless connection in Ubuntu. There are other issues I've encountered but open new questions for them.
