broadcom wlan

Post by Omnomnom9 » Sun Mar 17, 2019 16:12

Hi,

on system start, the wlan connection takes at least on approach (and fails at the first every time) before it can connect (sometimes it takes several approaches). Is there a way to fix that?

Hi Omnomnom9, :)

Open the networksettings, remove your network and after that, restart the system & connect with your network again.

Hi,

thanks for the answer. I tried that, but after the restart I couldn't connect anymore to my network.

Looking at the output of lsmod you posted, the STA (wl) module is loaded and neither ssb nor bcma nor brcmsmac nor b43 are loaded. That looks correct to me for the Broadcom BCM4360 chip. Is the compatible firmware installed?:

Code: Select all

equo install linux-firmware

Well, your Wi-Fi installation looks correct to me. Broadcom hardware does not have a good reputation in Linux.

You could try disabling wireless power saving to see if it makes a difference. Edit or create the file /etc/NetworkManager/conf.d/default-wifi-powersave-on.conf with the following contents:

Code: Select all

[main]
wifi.powersave = 2
