    Default Wireless not working (BCM4312)

    Devices with PCI ID's of 14e4:4315 are not supported by the built-in
    driver b43. You need to enable the Packman repo and install the
    broadcom-wl package that matches your kernel.

    Can you please tell me how to do this. By the way I need to install this offline, because I cannot use the internet.

    You really need to find some way to connect to the internet with a cable then (And of course that will need to work too).

    You can select a Packman mirror here: Additional YaST Package Repositories - openSUSE

    Have you tried a hard wire connection?

    If a hard wired connection is not possible, the you should go to

    http://ftp.skynet.be/pub/packman/suse/11.1/i586/

    or

    http://ftp.skynet.be/pub/packman/suse/11.1/x86_64/

    depending on whether you use a 32- or 64-bit system. You didn't
    specify that information. Within those directories, you will find a
    number of broadcom-wl-......rpm files. You need to find the correct
    one for your kernel as shown by the 'uname -r' command. For example,
    my 64-bit system shows "2.6.27.25-0.1-default" as the output. I would
    go to the location http://ftp...../x86_64/ and download the file named

    broadcom-wl-kmp-default-5.10.91.9_2.6.27.25_0.1.pm.13.x86_64.rpm

    Don't look for this file - it doesn't exist there. The critical parts
    are that you have the correct architecture (x76_64 or i586), the last
    part of the version information (default in my case) matches, and the
    kernel version (2.6.27.25-0.1 here) matches.

    After you have downloaded the above file, then transfer it to you home
    directory on linux and enter the following command:

    sudo rpm -iv broadcom-wl-XXXXXXXXXX.rpm

    The XXXXXXXXXX will depend on which file you downloaded. Just type the
    broadcom-wl part and press TAB for command completion. If the rpm
    command errors, then post the error, otherwise reboot. At this point,
    you should be able to see your wireless interface in NetworkManager
    and be able to configure it. If not, look at the output of the command
    'dmesg' for clues.

    If a hard wired connection is not possible, the you should go to

    Index of /pub/packman/suse/11.1/i586

    or

    Index of /pub/packman/suse/11.1/x86_64

    I could not find the spefic one to my kernel, so I just used the closest I could find. i installed, and restared, but it did not work.


    My kernel version is


    2.6.27.7-9-pae

    I ran dmesg and got a lot of things, so I had to upload it here.

    I don't do Windows and could not read that file.

    Your only choice is to download the driver files from the Broadcom
    site and build the driver for your system. You will need the kernel
    build package and the kernel headers for your system. That stuff
    should be on your DVD.
