b43-phy0 ERROR: Firmware file "b43/ucode5.fw" not found -> Wireless Network controller [0280]: Broadcom Corporation BCM4311 802.11b/g WLAN [14e4:4311] (rev 01) not working on Dell Inspiron 9400 Laptop in Ubuntu 11.04

Asked by Carl W. Entemann on 2011-09-28

After installing Ubuntu on a Dell Inspiron 9400 I cannot use the wireless modem. The modem works fine under Windows XP (dual boot) and works just fine on my 64-bit desk top. When I check the configuration I get the following ouput:

user@ubuntu:~$ iwconfig
lo no wireless extensions.

eth0 no wireless extensions.

wlan0 IEEE 802.11bg ESSID:off/any
          Mode:Managed Access Point: Not-Associated Tx-Power=0 dBm
          Retry long limit:7 RTS thr:off Fragment thr:off
          Power Management:off

Where do I go to download the proper driver? Can I download it to desktop, copy to USB, and install on laptop from USB?

And (I am new to Ubuntu) how do I do these tasks?

Need to know your wifi Network card before can choose and install proper drivers.
lspci -k
copy and paste the network cards and there drivers.

Hi Carl,

I had the same problem today. Download the latest updates through the update manager, reboot and that should fix the problem...did for me.

Hi,

Please first connect your wired network adapter 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:

If you are using the Gnome interface, open the Terminal console via "Applications->Accessories->Terminal"

If you are using the Unity interface, the easiest way to open the Terminal is to use the 'search' function on the dash. Or you can click on the 'More Apps' button, click on the 'See more results' by the installed section, and find it in that list of applications. A third way, available after you click on the 'More Apps' button, is to go to the search bar, and see that the far right end of it says 'All Applications'. You then click on that, and you'll see the full list. Then you can go to Accessories > Terminal after that.

So the methods in Unity are:
Dash > Search for Terminal
Dash > More Apps > 'See More Results' > Terminal
Dash > More Apps > Accessories > Terminal

Step 2: Please copy-paste the following command from https://help.ubuntu.com/community/WirelessTroubleshootingProcedure 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 lsmod. 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|brcm|CX|eth|ipw|ireless|irmware|isl|lbtf|orinoco|ndiswrapper|NPE|ound|p54|prism|rtl|rt2|rt3|rt5|rt6|rt7|usb|witch|wl';sudo dmidecode|egrep 'Manufact|Product'; iwconfig; cat /etc/modprobe.d/* | egrep 'acx|at76|ath|b43|bcm|brcm|CX|eth|ipw|irmware|isl|lbtf|orinoco|ndiswrapper|NPE|p54|prism|rtl|rt2|rt3|rt6|rt7|wmi|witch|wl'; cat /var/lib/NetworkManager/NetworkManager.state; sudo hwinfo --netcard ; ps -aux|egrep 'icd|etwork'; sudo lsmod

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.

Step 4: Please also clarify if you installed Ubuntu to the harddisk and are running from a harddisk install OR if you are only testing Ubuntu in a LiveCD session.

Regards,

Mark

Mark:

Thanks for replying.

First, I installed Ubuntu on the hard drive and am running it from that
install.

The command entered was:

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|brcm|CX|eth|ipw|ireless|irmware|isl|lbtf|orinoco|ndiswrapper|NPE|ound|p54|prism|rtl|rt2|rt3|rt5|rt6|rt7|usb|witch|wl';sudo
dmidecode|egrep 'Manufact|Product'; iwconfig; cat /etc/modprobe.d/* |
egrep
'acx|at76|ath|b43|bcm|brcm|CX|eth|ipw|irmware|isl|lbtf|orinoco|ndiswrapper|NPE|p54|prism|rtl|rt2|rt3|rt6|rt7|wmi|witch|wl';
cat /var/lib/NetworkManager/NetworkManager.state; sudo hwinfo --netcard
; ps -aux|egrep 'icd|etwork'; sudo lsmod

The output that I could capture is:

Please do not use an Email client when copy-pasting my command , as it will incorrectly chop the command into invalid pieces.

Please visit the following URL using a webbrowser to view the correct, single command that I gave you:

I am pretty sure that your BCM4311 wireless adapter is experiencing the following Broadcom driver bug in Ubuntu 11.04:

https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/bcmwl/+bug/732677

I suggest installing bcmwl-kernel-source (5.60.48.36+bdcom-0ubuntu5) from maverick (Ubuntu 10.10) using gdebi

Solution is described here:

https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/bcmwl/+bug/732677/comments/23

Then reboot your PC and run the following commands to enable your wireless adapter:

rfkill unblock all
sudo rfkill unblock all

Then retest wireless using NetworkManager

Mr. Rijckenberg:

Since I am very new to Ubuntu, just a few words of advice on where I
look to find the bcmw1-kernel-source that comes with natty (a word or
two regrading what natty is would be greatly appreciated) would be very
helpful.

In the meantime I will be looking through my Linux texts to see what I
can find.

I am thanking you.

Please carefully reread my remarks in post number 7 in this thread....

I am NOT asking you to install bcmwl-kernel-source from natty (natty=Ubuntu 11.04 and maverick=Ubuntu 10.10).

I was asking you to install bcmwl-kernel-source from maverick=Ubuntu 10.10 using the link I already gave you:

https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/bcmwl/+bug/732677/comments/23

More info on using gdebi is here:

https://help.ubuntu.com/community/InstallingSoftware#Using_GDebi_to_install_packages

I also suggest reading these guides:

Mr. Rijckenberg:

I do understand that I am not to install bcmwl-kernel-source from
natty. I was asking for a location so I could delete it. I have since
found it with search and will delete it. I will install the maverick
version and let you know what happens.

I am also ordering the references you suggested.

Thank you.

Carl

Thanks Mark Rijckenberg, that solved my question.

In the meantime, I have moved the user guide links to this location:
