I got very weird wirless problem.. it all fine before in 5.2 sabayone until latest upgrade.
Specs : Dell Inspiron 14r
WL Card: Broadcom BCM4727
Router: Netgear . 54g, SSID: NETGEAR, No Encryption
dmesg | grep Broadcom
eth1: Broadcom BCM4727 802.11 Hybrid Wireless Controller 126.96.36.199
Problem: Everyting looks to be fine , dmesg shows no problem . Can detect wireless interface at eth1
But cannot connect to my network NETGEAR.
NetworkManager stop connecting after a while and got no network.
I upgraded sabayon to from 5.2 (it all working fine) lastest, and it was working after restart . Then after i took a nap and come back wireless stop working . #iwlist eth1 scan
shows my network but i even can't connect with
#iwconfig eth1 essid "NETGEAR"
then when i type iwconfig it shows "" (blank) at ESSID.
when i check dmesg No error , nothing , it just dont "Work". No connection to my router, no ip changed.
I tried rmmod wl and insmod wl too , not working.
Seems it cannot suspend my laptop too. so i found this viewtopic.php?f=52&t=18419
echo "blacklist ssb" >> /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf
echo "blacklist b43" >> /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf
BUT not working at all ..
Please help .. i really need this for my project to be done this week as i am developing a network app on linux.
I think pervious version was working before with opensource network driver ? i am not sure and i dont remember the driver name.
