Thread: help resolve wifi issue with Broadcom BCM4352 14e4:43b1, OpenSuse 13.1

    Question help resolve wifi issue with Broadcom BCM4352 14e4:43b1, OpenSuse 13.1

    My laptop is an Asus G75VX with a Broadcom BCM4352 wireless network adapter. I just installed OpenSuse 13.1 and cannot get wireless to work.

    I tried Larry Finger's instructions here, https://forums.opensuse.org/english/...rk-around.html, but no results.

    I used Yast to look for info on my hardware:
    No “Wireless LAN” listing found, so no “kernel driver” line was found either.
    But this was found under the listing for Network Card:

    Broadcom Network Controller
    Device identifier (spec): 74019
    Device identifier: 82865

    Then I used "dmesg | grep firmware" in the command line and got no output at all.

    Using "/sbin/lspci" in command line I got this:
    03:00.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4352 802.11ac Wireless Network Adapter (rev 03)

    and using "/sbin/lspci -n" I got:
    03:00.0 0280: 14e4:43b1 (rev 03)

    Looking at the kernel output with the command "dmesg | less", I got these snipets, but nothing tells me anything about firmware:

    [ 1.309573] pci 0000:03:00.0: [14e4:43b1] type 00 class 0x028000
    [ 1.309599] pci 0000:03:00.0: reg 0x10: [mem 0xf5400000-0xf5407fff 64bit]
    [ 1.309620] pci 0000:03:00.0: reg 0x18: [mem 0xf5200000-0xf53fffff 64bit]
    [ 1.309728] pci 0000:03:00.0: supports D1 D2

    [ 1.309772] pci 0000:03:00.0: System wakeup disabled by ACPI

    [ 2.452664] usb 1-1.1: New USB device found, idVendor=13d3, idProduct=3404
    [ 2.452666] usb 1-1.1: New USB device strings: Mfr=1, Product=2, SerialNumber=3
    [ 2.452668] usb 1-1.1: Product: BCM20702A0
    [ 2.452670] usb 1-1.1: Manufacturer: Broadcom Corp
    [ 2.452671] usb 1-1.1: SerialNumber: 6C71D94968E8

    When I ran "/usr/sbin/iwconfig", I got:

    lo no wireless extensions.

    enp4s0 no wireless extensions.


    I then checked the log at /var/log/boot.log and there was no mention of any firmware or any mention of my BCM4352. I then used Yast to access the system log messages and these are all the lines that had anything to do with firmware:

    COMMAND=bcm43xx_firmware/install_bcm43xx_firmware_no_net [from when I followed Larry's instructions]
    2013-11-22T22:22:14.058182-05:00 linux-htt8 kernel: [ 0.187976] [Firmware Bug]: ACPI: BIOS _OSI(Linux) query ignored

    Still no wifi.

    So I went to packman.links2linux.de/package/broadcom-wl/443340 and downloaded/installed broadcom-wl-kmp-default-6.30.223.141_k3.11.6_4-2.6.x86_64.rpm
    Then I rebooted; no results

    Don't know what to do now. I am fairly new to Linux and command lines, so please be patient with me

    Best,
    Jeremy

    Are you sure you use kernel-default? Normally kernel-desktop is installed.
    Please post the output of:
    Code:
    uname -a

    Right, as suspected.
    So you have to install the package broadcom-wl-kmp-desktop !
    http://packman.links2linux.de/downlo...2.6.x86_64.rpm

    And you can remove broadcom-wl-kmp-default again, you won't need it. (and kernel-default as well if it is installed)

    Don´t forget:
    http://packman.links2linux.de/downlo...2.6.x86_64.rpm

    Here is the blacklist file for the Kernel Modules.

    Right, the package broadcom-wl is needed as well.
    I thought he wrote he installed that already, together with the incorrect broadcom-wl-kmp-default.
    That's what you get when you reply to a few threads about wifi issues simultanously...

    silly question, I know - using the command line how do i remove the files that were installed by broadcom-wl-kmp-default and kernel-default?

    partially answered my own question. I used

    Code:
    sudo zypper remove broadcom-wl-kmp-default
    to uninstall broadcom-wl-kmp-default

    which gave me this output, which I assume is correct
    Code:
    (1/1) Removing broadcom-wl-kmp-default-6.30.223.141_k3.11.6_4-2.6 ..............................................[done]
    wolfi323, regarding kernal-default, is that the full name of the other package i need to remove, if not, what is the full package name for kernel-default?

    Either:
    Code:
    sudo zypper rm broadcom-wl-kmp-default kernel-default
    or:
    Code:
    sudo rpm -e broadcom-wl-kmp-default kernel-default

    Yes.

    kernel-default is the full package name.
