Hey all, I have a Lenovo G550 and I was running 12.1 32 bit and I had wireless working just fine. Now that I have just upgraded to 12.2 64 bit (new install) I’ve lost my wireless connection. I can run lspci and see the wireless nic;
04:00.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4312 802.11b/g LP-PHY (rev 01)
but running ifconfig -a just shows my wired connection. I’ve gone into connection manager and nothing is in there. If I run hwinfo and grep for wlan this is what I see:
>> wlan.1: detecting wlan features >> int.11: wlan E: RFKILL_NAME=ideapad_wlan E: RFKILL_TYPE=wlan
I even tried to ifup wlan0 but I got the “Interface wlan0 is not available” message. Power-cycling the laptop doesn’t help either. I didn’t think I’d need to download a driver because my previous version of OpenSUSE found the wireless nic without any problem. In fact that’s one of the things like about OpenSUSE – it seems to have a large library of drivers. I don’t really consider myself a newbie any more but maybe I am. Is there something pretty basic that I’m overlooking?
