Trouble about wireless.

Question

Hi !

 

I've a

Vaio-i5 ~ # lspci|grep -i net
07:00.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM43142 802.11b/g/n (rev 01)

I've installed linux-firmware

 

and that is my kernel-config

 

but

Vaio-i5 ~ # ifconfig -a
eth0      Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr 30:f9:ed:a5:4a:a8

Vaio-i5 ~ # iwconfig 
eth0      no wireless extensions.
 
usb0      no wireless extensions.
 
ipddp0    no wireless extensions.
 
lo        no wireless extensions.

What can i do to solve ?

Then why insert them in blacklist ?

I guess it is to ensure they can't be loaded.

 

Maybe try

 

echo -e "blacklist bcma\nblacklist ssb\nblacklist mac80211" >> /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist
Note: If this broadcom-sta does not solve your issue, don't forget to uninstall it and unblacklist bcma, ssb and mac80211.

Ok; installing this ebuild i obtain :

* Messages for package net-wireless/broadcom-sta-6.30.223.248-r3:

 *   BCMA: If you insist on building this, you must blacklist it!
 *   SSB: If you insist on building this, you must blacklist it!
 *   MAC80211: If you insist on building this, you must blacklist it!
 * Please check to make sure these options are set correctly.
 * Failure to do so may cause unexpected problems.

But in my lsmod they don't compares:

Vaio-i5 ~ # lsmod | grep -i "bcma\|ssb\|mac80211"
Vaio-i5 ~ #

Then why insert them in blacklist ? :unsure:

 

I've also edited the kernel config files disabling all options containing BCMA, SSB and MAC80211.

But i had errors ricompiling the kernel.

 

This is my 3rd experiment

Questo il mio pi? recente kernel-config

 

Thanks for the aid .... but there are really (for me) technical difficulties ..... :|

GREEEEAAAAAT !!!!!! Magic Pytony !!!!! I'm writing with my smartphone as router wifi :P

 

Still I do not understand why I had tried to put them in the blacklist but it was not working.

Syntax error or it was useful to disable the modules of other Broadcom devices in menuconfig?

However you're great Thank You very very mutch :) :) :)

 

Also the tethering works fine.

 

Thank You Magician :) :) :)
