    Question Integrated WiFi card Problem (Backtrack doesn't detect it[Acer Nplify 802.11b/g/n])

    Introduction:

    Hello, I have a big problem. System doesn't detect WiFi card. I tried a lot of metods, but they were useless. Please help me.

    Details:
    I use BackTrack 5 r3 GNOME 32bit installed from USB.
    I'm currently connected with cable :S

    Here is the output of some basic commands:

    iwconfig:
    Code:
    root@bt:~# iwconfig
    lo        no wireless extensions.
    
    eth0      no wireless extensions.
    ifconfig:
    Code:

    For the line and I quote: " Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM43227 802.11b/g/n", you have to use b43 module (driver), the thing is, this driver does not support your chipset BCM43227, yet..Read this and take a look at the table, the column with "SUPPORTED" headline, all the way down is your chipset, locate the "14e4:4358" in the table, second column (support)..

    http://wireless.kernel.org/en/users/...wn_PCI_devices

    Although they mention a patch, you might want to look for it, just click in "WIP" in the second column of the same row (14e4:4358).

    In the broadcom website, they have one for your chipset : http://www.broadcom.com/support/802.11/linux_sta.php

    Another interesting thing, Debian has a .deb package with sta driver to broadcom, read here first, scroll down all the way to the "The following list is based on the alias fields of modinfo wl built from wheezy/broadcom-sta-source: " and look for your chipset, is there, supported. Then just click on the link just above the table, : "wheezy/broadcom-sta-source"..Download the package, is a .deb

    I hope this helps you....

    Luck.

    I'm trying to tell you that chipset as such is not supported by linux, BUT they give you an alternatives:
    Download the driver from vendor or look for the precompiled driver from some linux distros.

    You picked the driver from vendor, download it and read the README.txt...

    Then follow instructions..Any doubt, post it. But first, please read the instructions. Compile the driver?..Read how to...Requirements? Linux headers, look into the wiki how to install them...

    Please, do not get me wrong, but "beginners section" is for people who are having contact with this linux distro for the first time, not for Linux beginners. I strongly suggest to read Ubuntu wiki..

    Luck.

    Okay,after alot of reading,i finaly start to understand,so i did this:

    Code:
    root@bt:~# cd hybrid_wl
    root@bt:~/hybrid_wl# make 
    KBUILD_NOPEDANTIC=1 make -C /lib/modules/`uname -r`/build M=`pwd`
    make[1]: Entering directory `/usr/src/linux-source-3.2.6'
    
      WARNING: Symbol version dump /usr/src/linux-source-3.2.6/Module.symvers
               is missing; modules will have no dependencies and modversions.
    
    Wireless Extension is the only possible API for this kernel version
    Using Wireless Extension API
      CC [M]  /root/hybrid_wl/src/wl/sys/wl_linux.o
    /root/hybrid_wl/src/wl/sys/wl_linux.c:388: error: unknown field ‘ndo_set_multicast_list’ specified in initializer
    /root/hybrid_wl/src/wl/sys/wl_linux.c:388: warning: initialization from incompatible pointer type
    make[2]: *** [/root/hybrid_wl/src/wl/sys/wl_linux.o] Error 1
    make[1]: *** [_module_/root/hybrid_wl] Error 2
    make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/linux-source-3.2.6'
    make: *** [all] Error 2
    So i found in some threads that i should do this:
    Code:
    root@bt:~/hybrid_wl/src/wl/sys# ls
    wlc_ethereal.h  wl_cfg80211.h  wlc_pub.h    wl_dbg.h     wl_iw.c  wl_linux.c
    wl_cfg80211.c   wlc_key.h      wlc_types.h  wl_export.h  wl_iw.h  wl_linux.h
    root@bt:~/hybrid_wl/src/wl/sys# gedit wl_linux.c
    And go to a line that makes problem(388) and patch it,but i don't know how

    Code:
    #if WIRELESS_EXT >= 19 || LINUX_VERSION_CODE >= KERNEL_VERSION(2, 6, 29)
    #if LINUX_VERSION_CODE < KERNEL_VERSION(2, 6, 19) <----- LINE 388
    static struct ethtool_ops wl_ethtool_ops =
    #else
    static const struct ethtool_ops wl_ethtool_ops =
    #endif 
    {
    	.get_drvinfo = wl_get_driver_info
    };
    #endif
    Thanks for helping me

    Okay,so i did it,i don't know how lol,but in WICD there is no wifi connection

    But here is IWCONFIG

    Code:
    root@bt:~# iwconfig
    lo        no wireless extensions.
    
    eth1      IEEE 802.11bgn  ESSID:""

    Cool Re: Integrated WiFi card Problem (Backtrack doesn't detect it[Acer Nplify 802.11b/g/n

    I did it,here's how:

    Downloaded this driver:
    http://www.broadcom.com/support/802.11/linux_sta.php
    Followed the README,if you get any error after MAKE,search it on google,you will find how to patch it.
    Okay,after installing the driver,i typed iwconfig and got this
    Code:
    root@bt:~# iwconfig
    lo        no wireless extensions.
    
    eth1      IEEE 802.11bgn  ESSID:""  
              Mode:Managed  Frequency:2.412 GHz  Access Point: Not-Associated   
              Bit Rate:144 Mb/s   Tx-Power:24 dBm   
              Retry min limit:7   RTS thr:off   Fragment thr:off
              Power Managementmode:All packets received
              Link Quality=5/5  Signal level=0 dBm  Noise level=-11 dBm
              Rx invalid nwid:0  Rx invalid crypt:0  Rx invalid frag:0
              Tx excessive retries:0  Invalid misc:0   Missed beacon:0
    
    eth0      no wireless extensions.
    Now,go to WICD NETWORK MANAGER,and then to PREFERENCES,GENERAL SETTINGS TAB,and then in Wireless interface,i typed eth1,because when i type iwconfig you can see that eth1 is my wireless int,and then,WiFi should work.

    BIG THANKS TO maverik35 !!
