    Default b43-phy0 ERROR: PHY transmission error

    Hi, I have Acer Laptop Aspire 5020, and it has wireless interface as Broadcom.

    I am using BT4(pre) , When want to connect any network; dmesg says

    b43-phy0 ERROR: PHY transmission error
    b43-phy0 ERROR: PHY transmission error
    b43-phy0 ERROR: PHY transmission error

    could you tell me is it driver problem? Need update? Or any stable driver here?

    I couldn't find fixing about this issue on google

    thanx

    Most broadcom chipset having problem with backtrack.perform this
    lspci -nn
    if you are getting these ID's

    • PCI ID 14e4:4313
    • PCI ID 14e4:4315
    • PCI ID 14e4:4321
    • PCI ID 14e4:4324
    • PCI ID 14e4:4325
    • PCI ID 14e4:4328
    • PCI ID 14e4:4329
    • PCI ID 14e4:432b

    than this chipset is not supported by b43 drivers.you need broadcom linux_sta hybrid driver for that and only you can connect to wireless network using it.
    try modprobe -r b43 and modprobe b43 and give it a try again

    not in list. It would be work. Beacuse in last time I have fixed. But now I can't remember.

    By the way, it is connecting but not usable. so slow. sometimes disconnect.

    Any body knows that old Broadcom driver more stable with BT4???
