Yes, I have a problem with my wireless and

following the pinned guidelines here is what I see.

Opensuse 13.1
KDE 4.11.5

    1.704009] usb 1-1.3: new high-speed USB device number 4 using ehci-pci

and then there are these:

Sunhui-PC:~ # iwconfig
lo        no wireless extensions.

enp1s0    no wireless extensions.

The wireless adapter is “on” in BIOS
As an aside, wired works which is why we have not noticed the wifi problem until now.
Bluetooth sorta works though it will not discover any devices.

I tried the download and run of

Sunhui-PC:~ # sudo bcm43xx_firmware/install_bcm43xx_firmware_no_net

and the 2 directories still remain empty.

I know not what to do and am willing and able to try anything.


Further info, posted cause it looked helpful.

This box was originally Windows 8 and I installed 13.1 onto it.[/size]

And one more.

I plugged a USB D-Link adapter into a USB port and it connects just fine.

That says to my uneducated ears that the Broadcom driver is not working.

Well I’ll be darned. That seemed to fix it. Now to see if I can get the wired to work again.

Both wifi and wireless work well and I was hoping that with the proper driver that it would solve my Bluetooth issue but alas, no joy.

So, I am off to see if I can figure it out.

I spoke too soon about the wifi working.

It worked when I plugged in an external USB wireless adapter.
And I have removed and re-installed the Broadcom-wl and Broadcom-wl-desktop and it made no difference.

And being a heretic, in an attempt to get bluetooth working I was testing an Ubuntu version with a beautiful desktop named “Elementary Luna”.
Elemenrary Luna installed a different driver which worked for the Wifi and I was wondering how to install it in Opensuse 13.1

It is :

These packages contain Broadcom's IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n hybrid Linux® device driver for use with Broadcom's BCM4311-, BCM4312-, BCM4313-, BCM4321-, BCM4322-, BCM43224-, and BCM43225-, BCM43227- and BCM43228-based hardware. There are different tars for 32-bit and 64-bit x86 CPU architectures

So, how do I go about installing and trying it with openSuse 13.1 ?


PS, posting this reply as its own thread.

I replied in your other thread.

Just one thing here as well: broadcom-wl is in fact that Broadcom STA driver.

And you probably should have mentioned what device you have in the new thread.
Not everybody that reads the other thread will know that you already posted it here.
