    Default bcm4312 on backtrack 4

    hello.. i wanna ask something..
    i have a laptop with wireless bcm4312 802.11b/g

    i download driver for bcm4312

    and this my step for an installasion :
    1. root@shadow:/home/bcm#tar -xzvf hybrid-portsrc-x86_32-v5_10_91_9.tar.gz

    2. Build Loadable Kernel Module :
    root@shadow:/home/bcm#make -C /lib/modules/`uname -r`/build M=`pwd`

    but i got an error like this :
    Code:
    root@h4x0r:/home/bcm# make -C /lib/modules/`uname -r`/build M=`pwd`
    
    make: Entering directory `/usr/src/linux-source-2.6.29.4'

    Default search

    Everyone is tired of telling people to search so you probably won't get a reply. If you are expecting to do anything with that card except get internet you are in for a big surprise. I am new to linux and bt4 and if you just search a little you would realize broadcom doesn't publish their drivers so only afew cards will actually go into monitor mode and even less if any will inject. I made a post about a week ago introducing myself and my setup. I have the same card and didn't compile anything. What's more I am using it right now. You shouldn't have to do anything except maybe put your wpa supplicant to wext. This applies to bt4 pre-final.Good Luck

    Built in bcm4312 broadcom card works excellent on BT4 Pre Final. No need for driver installation or patching. It uses b43 driver already in BT4PF working on managed and monitor mode (at the same time). Injection also works excellent.

    Check your facts before posting, and search a little harder yourself. Especially when trying to help, otherwise you're giving out incorrect info.

    Hi,

    I have a laptop with bcm4312 and I have tried using b43 module. The module loads but no device is created. After modprobe b43, dmesg shows the following:

    Code:
    cfg80211: Using static regulatory domain info
    cfg80211: Regulatory domain: US
            (start_freq - end_freq @ bandwidth), (max_antenna_gain, max_eirp)

            (5170000 KHz - 5190000 KHz @ 40000 KHz), (600 mBi, 2300 mBm)
            (5190000 KHz - 5210000 KHz @ 40000 KHz), (600 mBi, 2300 mBm)
            (5210000 KHz - 5230000 KHz @ 40000 KHz), (600 mBi, 2300 mBm)
            (5230000 KHz - 5330000 KHz @ 40000 KHz), (600 mBi, 2300 mBm)
            (5735000 KHz - 5835000 KHz @ 40000 KHz), (600 mBi, 3000 mBm)
    cfg80211: Calling CRDA for country: US

            (start_freq - end_freq @ bandwidth), (max_antenna_gain, max_eirp)
            (2402000 KHz - 2472000 KHz @ 40000 KHz), (300 mBi, 2700 mBm)
            (5170000 KHz - 5250000 KHz @ 40000 KHz), (300 mBi, 1700 mBm)
            (5250000 KHz - 5330000 KHz @ 40000 KHz), (300 mBi, 2000 mBm)
            (5490000 KHz - 5710000 KHz @ 40000 KHz), (300 mBi, 2000 mBm)
            (5735000 KHz - 5835000 KHz @ 40000 KHz), (300 mBi, 3000 mBm)
    But, like I said before, no new device is created. Is there any parameter that has to be passed?

    Thanks in advance

    lspci -vnn | grep 14e4
    type that, if the output spits out "14e4:4315" or "14e4:4312" ur outta luck with the b43 drivers. that means u just have to use the linux_sta drivers which do not support injection.

    revman is actually partially right. the b43 drivers dont support certain pci-id's which are actually really common. certain bcm4312 cards work with injection and what not and some dont. it all depends on the pci-id and its compatibility with b43.

    must just be the 14e4:4315 then.

    The result of lspci -vnn|grep 14e4 on my laptop is:

    Code:
    04:00.0 Network controller [0280]: Broadcom Corporation BCM4312 802.11b/g [14e4:4315] (rev 01)
    And it doesn't work...

    Default Samsung NC10 Wireless BT3 works BT4 Doesn't ??

    Hi,

    I don't know how useful this info is. I installed BT4 on Dell Mini 12 and got the following o/p from lspci -vnn | grep 14e4

    03:00.0 Network controller [0280]: Broadcom Corporation BCM4312 802.11B/G [14e4:4315] (rev 01) Subsystem: Broadcom Corporation device [14e4:04b5]

    Wireless doesn't work.

    I also installed BT3 on Samsung NC10 (has the Atheros card) and it works fine, however wireless doesn't work on NC10 with BT4.
