Thread: Wifi adapter not found

  1. #1

    Default Wifi adapter not found

    After updating few days ago the system, I cannot see the wireless section. Network manager says: Wifi adapter not found.

    I have this:

    Broadcom Inc. and subsidiaries BCM4360 802.11ac Wireless Network Adapter (rev 03) . Tumbleweed latest version.

    When I did these:
    1. sudo rfkill list: wireless is not listed
    2. nmcli radio wifi on: nothing happened


    I installed:
    • rtl8821ce (home:Sauerland:hardware)
    • b43-fwcutter


    But nothing changed.

    What are other suggestions to solve the problem?

    I installed:

    rtl8821ce (home:Sauerland:hardware)
    This is for Realtek, you need broadcom.....

    Broadcom-wl is failed in Packman
    so please show:
    Code:
    zypper se -si broadcom rtl

    Default AW: Wifi adapter not found

    So your problem with wifi is:

    There was an update to glibc2.34 and broadcom-wl must be rebuild but that does not work.......
    So delete both broadcom-wl packages (use Yast) and you can use the native bcma from kernel.

    Because broadcom-wl installs a file, which holds back the native kernel-drivers from starting (a so named blacklist file).

    I did. The result now is:

    Code:
    localhost:~> zypper se -si broadcom rtl
    Loading repository data...
    Reading installed packages...
    No matching items found.
    I removed the blacklist file as well. I restarted but the Wifi is missing either. What could I do more?

    I also found this, from your previous thread back to 2018: I checked and the files seem updated. Could I try them or I will fall back to the previous problem?

    Thanks for the support!

    Add repo:
    zypper ar -f -n packman http://ftp.gwdg.de/pub/linux/misc/pa...d/packman.repo

    for default:
    zypper in broadcom-wl broadcom-wl-kmp-default

    for desktop:
    zypper in broadcom-wl broadcom-wl-kmp-desktop

    for pae:
    zypper in broadcom-wl broadcom-wl-kmp-pae
