Ubuntu: Wireless connection setting in ubuntu-12.04.3-desktop-i386 (Offline )


I just installed ubuntu-12.04.3-desktop-i386, but it didn't detect my wireless card (BCM4313). I don't have internet connection in ubuntu, but i have wireless connection in Window 7 environment.

I googled about it, and I found this solution for offline operation:

  1. I believe the package you need is linux-firmware-nonfree.

  2. Please download the package, transfer it on a USB stick or similar to the desktop of the Xubuntu machine.

  3. Open terminal and type:

    sudo dpkg -i Desktop/linux*.deb    sudo modprobe -r b43 && sudo modprobe b43  
  4. You should be all set.

    • I have followed the above instructions but still it is not working.


Please do:

sudo apt-get purge bcmwl-kernel-source  sudo modprobe -rv wl  sudo modprobe -v brcmsmac  

if there are any errors please continue with the commands then reboot.
