5.3 amd64 lxde network issues.

Postby WarraWarra » Tue Jul 20, 2010 18:38

Trying to get my zd1211rw + bcm43xx wifi to work but no luck so far.

Used the defaults livecd + installed defaults and no joy.
Then tryed a few other option below = no joy.
Lan works fine so networking is not the issue.
Seems it is a driver issues but surely the alternative funtoo working kernel + /~lib/modules should have fixed this ?

ifconfig

modprobed -> wl b43 b44 bcm43xx before trying this as alternative fix.
Even copied the funtoo netif.d and wpa_supplicant.conf and no joy.

Next trying to reisntall the wifi drivers for zd1211rw and bcm43xx:
Code: Select all
f etc # equo search bcm43

Installing the zd1211rw seems to have worked in console just need to get networkmanager to work with this hardware, hopefully on next restart.

Hope this can helps someone else having wifi issues.

Fix is to install the "search results" packages + reboot for my hardware.
Code: Select all
equo search b43 zd1211
