Under Ubuntu 9.10, wifi worked out of the box by enabling Broadcom STA wireless driver (System / Administration / Hardware Drivers / activating “Broadcom STA wireless driver”).
Under Ubuntu 10.4, when I try to activate the driver, the following error occurs: “Sorry, installation of this driver failed. Please have a look at the log file for details: /var/log/jockey.log” => I no longer can use my wifi card (which worked great on ubuntu 9.10).
Here is corresponding bug report: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+bug/511379
What’s interesting is jockey.log content:
2010-01-22 23:01:35,364 WARNING: modinfo for module wl failed: ERROR: modinfo: could not find module wl
2010-01-22 23:01:35,365 WARNING: /sys/module/wl/drivers does not exist, cannot rebind wl driver
I will try to update this post as soon as a solution is provided.
Here is the update:
- ensure you have installed package ‘bcmwl-modaliases’ : sudo apt-get install bcmwl-modaliases
- restart your computer: sudo shutdown -r now
That should work.
