BCM4313 802.11b/g/n Wireless LAN Issues [Solved]

Post by Ephemer0l » Mon May 16, 2011 5:06

I just wanted to leave this here for anyone who might have the same issue.
I came from a fresh install from a daily spin of gnome. I upgraded, needed more features in my kernel for usb tethering resulting in a kernel rebuild and, rebooted. This resulted with no wireless card shown. I looked in dmesg and saw

Code: Select all

brcm80211: module is from the staging directory, the quality is unknown, you have been warned.
brcm80211 0000:02:00.0: PCI INT A -> GSI 16 (level, low) -> IRQ 16
brcm80211 0000:02:00.0: setting latency timer to 64
brcm80211: fail to load firmware brcm/bcm43xx-0.fw
brcm80211: Failed to find firmware usually in /lib/firmware/brcm
brcm80211 0000:02:00.0: PCI INT A disabled
brcm80211: wl_pci_probe: wl_attach failed!


I found bug relating to the issue from gentoo. I used portage to install "sys-kernel/linux-firmware" since equo did not supply the same files in the package "sys-kernel/linux-firmwares-2.6.38".

Thanks for posting, Ephemer0l. If you would file a bug report in the SL Bugzilla (see link Bugs at the top of this page) to bring it to the attention of the SL developers, that would be appreciated. Maybe they can fix it in the Entropy package.

sys-kernel/linux-firmwares is already in Entropy.
