Ubuntu: difficulties with bcm4313 driver in ubuntu studio 13.04 [duplicate]


I have recently installed ubuntu studio 13.04 on my netbook. It is excellent, but i have some problems with my WiFi.

If I use the command lspci I can see that I have a Broadcom bcm4313 wireless card installed. If I run the command iwconfig there is no wlan0!

It seems that Ubuntu does not pick up the WiFi card or the card is blacklisted.


In Ubuntu 13.04, I believe the default bcmwl-kernel-source will not work correctly for your Broadcom 4313. I recommend that you get a temporary wired ethernet connection and open a terminal:

sudo apt-get remove --purge bcmwl-kernel-source  wget http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/restricted/b/bcmwl/bcmwl-kernel-source_5.100.82.112+bdcom-0ubuntu3_amd64.deb  

Or, if yours is a 32-bit system:

wget http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/restricted/b/bcmwl/bcmwl-kernel-source_5.100.82.112+bdcom-0ubuntu3_i386.deb  

Confirm 32- or 64-bit:


Then do:

sudo dpkg -i bcmwl*.deb  

Reboot and give us your report.


Check if you can install the driver going to "Software & updates" (search in the dash) and then to the "Additional drivers" tab. Otherwise, you can to manually install the Proprietary Broadcom STA Wireless driver (assuming you have wired internet connection) with: sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get --reinstall install bcmwl-kernel-source stop any other driver working: sudo modprobe -r b43 ssb wl brcmfmac brcmsmac bcma and load the driver with: sudo modprobe wl
