    Default HP Mini 210 HD Edition w/ Broadcom BCM4312 (rev 01) 802.11 b/g

    Nearly everything works out of the box with the following exceptions:

    * Built-in Broadcom BCM4312 (rev 01) 802.11b/g card
    The OS simply will not recognize the wireless card. I've tried combinations of drivers to include ndiswrapper with no luck. My ALFA USB card works like a champ, though.

    * Synaptic gesture trackpad
    Left and right mouse click and gestures were not working. I fixed the problem by issuing the following command:
    echo "options psmouse proto=exps" > /etc/modprobe.d/psmouse.modprobe

    Here are the current specs of this netbook:

    HP Mini 210 HD Edition (210-1000CTO)
    • Intel(R) Atom(TM) Processor N450 (1.66GHz, 512KB) with Intel(R) Graphics Media Accelerator 3150

    • 1GB DDR2 System Memory (1 Dimm)

    • 160GB 7200RPM SATA Hard Drive

    • 10.1" diagonal HD LED HP BrightView Infinity Widescreen Display (1366 x 768) (no display issues)

    • HP Mini Webcam (works)

    • Wireless-G Card (doesn't work)

    • HP Color Matching Keyboard (doesn't work but don't care)


    Update:

    According to b43 - Linux Wireless, this particular broadcom card (14e4:4315) is not supported by the b43 driver until at least kernel version 2.6.32. I guess I'll have to wait until the BT4 kernel is updated. ;D

    After muts gave me the link to download the custom 2.6.34-rc2 kernel, the wireless driver worked w/ injection capabilities! Now, all Broadcom 4312 chipsets should work (with the updated kernel). Thanks, muts!

    For those who would like to test the new kernel (remember, you do so at your own risk!!!) here are the commands:

    wget http://www.offsec.com/linux-2.6.34.deb
    wget http://bu3sch.de/b43/fwcutter/b43-fwcutter-012.tar.bz2
    dpkg -i --force-overwrite linux-2.6.34.deb
    reboot
    uname -a
    # to confirm that the updated kernel was installed
    tar xjf b43-fwcutter-012.tar.bz2
    cd b43-fwcutter-012
    make
    install
    wget http://mirror2.openwrt.org/sources/b...0.10.5.tar.bz2
    tar xjf broadcom-wl-4.150.10.5.tar.bz2
    export FIRMWARE_INSTALL_DIR="/lib/firmware"
    cd broadcom-wl-4.150.10.5/driver
    b43-fwcutter -w "$FIRMWARE_INSTALL_DIR" wl_apsta_mimo.o
    ldconfig
    depmod -a
    reboot
    # next, test to see that your card can inject
    airmon-ng start <interface>
    aireplay-ng --test <monitor interface>


    If all works well, make sure to thank the backtrack crew.

    Hello everybody,

    I have tried to download the new kernel and test it on my Latitude with 14e4:4315 from . Unrortunately I found it dead :
    http://http://www.offsec.com/linux-2.6.34.deb


    I tried to google it but it gave me just twitter links with no kernel.
    Are there any other possibilities to get it?

    Thankz MadJohn

    Installing a different kernel will break a lot of the apps in backtrack, because of this it's not supported. If you want a working wifi connection use a compatable usb wifi adapter and not something with closed source barely supported drivers.

    Actually, I already have atheros PCMCIA card for a few years, but Im not interesting in using it for internet browsing.

    I would like to use my 14e4:4315 for internet browsing.

    I know that new kernel will destroy most of my system, but it doesnt matter. Im already decided to try it out.

    Thankz MadJohn

    Sorry. Muts must have taken the link down since that version of the kernel is still in its testing phase. I suppose if you really want to download the kernel, PM muts in IRC. That's what I did. Good luck!
