    Hi!

    Yesterday i found myself in the same situation, here it is what i did:

    WARNING: Symbol version dump /usr/src/linux-source-2.6.29.4/Module.symvers is missing;
    modules will have no dependencies and modversions.
    -> this is the main problem... you should cd to '/usr/src/linux-source-2.6.29.4/' do a 'make menuconfig' (i did it, maybe it is not neccesary) and give it a 'make' command... this will run for some time but after then you will have the Module.symvers in place...

    After this i tried to compile the broadcom linux_sta, but it gave me errors... for the 2.6.29.4 kernel you should download and apply a patch (same site where you can get the linux_sta driver).

    I tried to compile the wl.ko module under the new 2.6.30.5 kernel as well, but no luck... if anyone did it plz share your knowledge

    (sorry for my poor english...)

    Hi everyone,

    I've been trying to find a solution for my laptop wireless adapter since kernel 2.6.30.5 for BT4PR was released. But I have found nothing that works. I know that it won't work for auditing wireless networks, for which I have an USB dongle that works perfectly with total injection support, but for normal daily connection to my Internet router at home is more than enough.

    To begin with, when I upgraded the kernel, when doing the "apt-get dist-upgrade", the broadcom-sta package was upgraded too, but the module that was packaged in it is for kernel 2.6.29.4. This is the result of "modinfo wl" after the upgrade:

    Code:
    filename:       /lib/modules/2.6.30.5/kernel/net/wireless/wl.ko
    alias:          pci:v000014E4d00004357sv*sd*bc*sc*i*
    alias:          pci:v000014E4d00004353sv*sd*bc*sc*i*
    alias:          pci:v000014E4d0000432Dsv*sd*bc*sc*i*
    alias:          pci:v000014E4d0000432Csv*sd*bc*sc*i*
    alias:          pci:v000014E4d0000432Bsv*sd*bc*sc*i*
    alias:          pci:v000014E4d0000432Asv*sd*bc*sc*i*
    alias:          pci:v000014E4d00004329sv*sd*bc*sc*i*
    alias:          pci:v000014E4d00004328sv*sd*bc*sc*i*
    alias:          pci:v000014E4d00004315sv*sd*bc*sc*i*
    alias:          pci:v000014E4d00004313sv*sd*bc*sc*i*
    alias:          pci:v000014E4d00004312sv*sd*bc*sc*i*
    alias:          pci:v000014E4d00004311sv*sd*bc*sc*i*
    depends:
    vermagic:       2.6.29.4 SMP mod_unload 686
    parm:           oneonly:int
    parm:           piomode:int
    parm:           nompc:int
    parm:           name:string
    So I decided to compile it myself using the instructions at http :// www . void . gr/kargig/blog/2009/07/18/trying-to-achieve-a-more-stable-hybrid-broadcom-wl-kernel-module-for-broadcom-4328 (Sorry but I can't post URLs yet...).

    Everything compiles fine. I blacklisted the b43, ssb, b43legacy and bcm43xx modules. The module is loaded correctly but it doesn't create any interface. The problem is that a driver is being loaded somehow as can be seen from this "lspci -vnn":

    Code:
    04:00.0 Network controller [0280]: Broadcom Corporation BCM4312 802.11b/g [14e4:4315] (rev 01)

            Kernel driver in use: b43-pci-bridge
            Kernel modules: wl
    I'm stuck here. Any ideas?

    Thanks in advance

    Hi admrt!

    Any interesting error messages in dmesg related to the wireless card?

    Is the ieee80211 module loaded? If i remember correctly it should be loaded if you want wl.ko to work correctly. (sudo modprobe ieee80211_crypt_tkip)

    I have the same broadcom card, i will try to check it with the new kernel as soon as i can...

    When I try to get the kernel it returns with
    Code:
    root@meh-laptop:/var/cache/apt/archives# dpkg -i --force-all linux-image-2.6.30.5_2.6.30.5-10.00.Custom_i386.deb
    dpkg: error processing linux-image-2.6.30.5_2.6.30.5-10.00.Custom_i386.deb (--install):
     cannot access archive: No such file or directory
    Errors were encountered while processing:
     linux-image-2.6.30.5_2.6.30.5-10.00.Custom_i386.deb
    Do I need to change the repositories or something? I am using a Dell Inspirion 1545.

    Thanks in advance!

    Maybe I am missing something here but does your post have anything to do with this thread?

    Default Lenovo IdeaPad S10e with b43

    I use the same laptop wich lcpsi result : [14e4:4315] (rev 01) which I think should't be able to work on injection and monitoring according to use of Aircrack-ng but I read somewhere I can patch the driver and use b43 to get injection working on ubuntu 9.xx but I couldn't fix it
    I had to install Ubunti 10.04 which seems working but I can't make airodump-ng captures on mon0 (which is made by airmon-ng start wlan0), in fact no data is received (I uninstalled NetworkManager, WPA-Supplicant and Avahi-Daemon too because they made problems for airmon-ng)

    the question is : IS B43 WORKING ON [14e4:4315] (rev 01) OR NOT ???!?!?

    no one answered to this question

    please somebody tell me is it possible to inject with new driver/patch b43 ?

    You'll need at minimum kernel 2.6.32 at the very minimum with latest fwcutter and driver binary blob.
