Hi, i have a
Broadcom Corporation BCM4313 802.11b/g/n Wireless LAN Controller.
fw-detect didnt find any firmware , so i installed broadcom-sta
with:

      Code:

#! /bin/bash
# Install the wifi drivers for Broadcom 4312 wifi
############################################################################

## Update the list of available packages. Install the module-assistant and
##   wireless-tools packages:
apt-get update
apt-get install module-assistant wireless-tools

## Build and install a broadcom-sta-modules-* package for your system,
##   using Module-Assistant:

sudo m-a a-i broadcom-sta

## Rebuild your initial ramdisk, to blacklist modules defined at
##   /etc/modprobe.d/broadcom-sta-common.conf within initramfs:

sudo update-initramfs -u -k $(uname -r)

## Unload conflicting modules:

sudo modprobe -r b44 b43 b43legacy ssb

## Load the wl module:

sudo modprobe wl

## Verify your device has an available interface:

sudo iwconfig

## Configure your wireless interface as appropriate.

## At this point I don't think that the wl driver will load on startup so

sudo echo wl >> /etc/modules


Now the wlan0 is identified correctly imo.
Starting ceni i get following error(s) when scanning for networks:
      Code:

Delete /var/run/wpa_supplicant/wlan0   - only if i tried before

nl80211 - generic netlink not found - the crucial thing


I do not have any clue what i could do.
Hoping for some help ^^

Broadcom b43

b43
apt-get install firmware-b43-lpphy-installer

/lib/firmware/b43/b0g0bsinitvals5.fw
/lib/firmware/b43/b0g0initvals5.fw
/lib/firmware/b43/ucode5.fw

1. You should not need the proprietary firmware for most b43 802.11b/g wlan cards anymore. 2. The non-free firmware will be used in preference to the free firmware if both are installed.

Broadcom b43legacy

b43legacy
apt-get install firmware-b43legacy-installer

/lib/firmware/b43legacy/ucode2.fw
/lib/firmware/b43legacy/ucode4.fw
/lib/firmware/b43legacy/pcm4.fw
/lib/firmware/b43legacy/a0g0bsinitvals2.fw
/lib/firmware/b43legacy/a0g0initvals2.fw
/lib/firmware/b43legacy/b0g0bsinitvals2.fw
/lib/firmware/b43legacy/b0g0initvals2.fw

Broadcom b43legacy

b43legacy
apt-get install firmware-brcm80211

/lib/firmware/brcm/bcm43xx-0.fw
/lib/firmware/brcm/bcm43xx_hdr-0.fw

BCM4313 works like a charm using the brcmsmac module and firmware-brcm80211 (non-free)
no need of legacy things
