    Default Wireless problem with netbook SAMSUNG N150

    Hi guys,
    In my new netbook Samsung N150 Plus, I can't connect to the net with wireless.
    I read the tutorial "Getting your wireless to work" but there are the following issue:

    When I search for the lines in the file

    Code:
    /var/log/boot.msg
    containing the word "wireless", I got no results.

    Moreover when I search for "wireless LAN" in YaST->Hardware Information, I can't find it.

    The result is that Network Manager doesn't recognize any wireless net.
    I don't know why it doesn't work, in the HCL the Samsung N-series is reported as wireless-compatible.

    I need the wireless to work as soon as possible.
    Thanks in advance for your help.

    Hi Greg,
    this is the output:

    Code:
    cristina@linux-afbl:~> /sbin/lspci - nnk
    Usage: lspci [<switches>]
    
    Basic display modes:
    -mm		Produce machine-readable output (single -m for an obsolete format)
    -t		Show bus tree
    
    Display options:
    -v		Be verbose (-vv for very verbose)
    -k		Show kernel drivers handling each device
    -x		Show hex-dump of the standard part of the config space
    -xxx		Show hex-dump of the whole config space (dangerous; root only)
    -xxxx		Show hex-dump of the 4096-byte extended config space (root only)
    -b		Bus-centric view (addresses and IRQ's as seen by the bus)
    -D		Always show domain numbers
    
    Resolving of device ID's to names:
    -n		Show numeric ID's
    -nn		Show both textual and numeric ID's (names & numbers)
    -q		Query the PCI ID database for unknown ID's via DNS
    -qq		As above, but re-query locally cached entries
    -Q		Query the PCI ID database for all ID's via DNS
    
    Selection of devices:
    -s [[[[<domain>]:]<bus>]:][<slot>][.[<func>]]	Show only devices in selected slots
    -d [<vendor>]:[<device>]			Show only devices with specified ID's
    
    Other options:
    -i <file>	Use specified ID database instead of /usr/share/pci.ids.gz
    -p <file>	Look up kernel modules in a given file instead of default modules.pcimap
    -M		Enable `bus mapping' mode (dangerous; root only)
    
    PCI access options:
    -A <method>	Use the specified PCI access method (see `-A help' for a list)
    -O <par>=<val>	Set PCI access parameter (see `-O help' for a list)
    -G		Enable PCI access debugging
    -H <mode>	Use direct hardware access (<mode> = 1 or 2)

    You had added a " " to much before the "-" - that is why your oSUSE tries to tell you how to use that command...

    By the way: You could use "copy and paste" in a terminal-emulator, too -> but use the mouse or [Control] + [v] for paste (and M. or [Control] + [c] for copy).

    And you will need a output like that -> according to http://samsung.de/de/Privatkunden/Mobil/Notebooks/NSerie/n150emiliaplus/NP-N150-JP03DE/detail.aspx?atab=support&aguid=7a8f46b5-c7c5-4bb9-88e8-abaa427baede&dl=driver your netbook came probably with a wireless lan device from ether BROADCOM *or* from ATHEROS.

    Follow this guide Install Broadcom Drivers from Packman and you should be at home.

    This is your wireless network device
    Code:
    05:00.0 Network controller [0280]: Broadcom Corporation Device [14e4:4727] (rev 01)
        Subsystem: Askey Computer Corp. Device [144f:7179]

    Thanks for reporting back.

    It was a pleasure but I did not much here (most did Greg and caf4926)
    [and hopefully the tags I had added
    (* bcm4313 * broadcom bcm4313 ) did at least not puzzle you ;-) ]

    If I was meant at all - think most part of the thanks should be 'redirected' to
    the guy(s) who made that peace of software (e. g. compare: Driver for RTL8192CE and RTL8187CE PCIe devices now available > the linked h-online article in my posting).

    And if you want to give something back to the community - maybe you try to make some of your working devices public
    - on the Smolt project (see: Smolt - openSUSE)
    or/and
    - on HCL:Samsung laptops - openSUSE (maybe with a remark that you have a model with a broadcom wireless LAN card)
    and so help other users
    (and to let the manufacturers see how many people are using their devices with linux based operating systems).

    Just some thoughts.
    Have a lot of fun!
