Broadcom Wireless help

I hope this is the right place to ask for ChrunchBang 11. But when I start it up from the live USB it doesn't detect my wifi card. Ubuntu did this without any problems.

Be excellent to each other!

Re: Broadcom Wireless help

I know it's not exactly the same card - but it's very similar and from the same manufacture.
This is how I make my wireless work.

sudo -i
aptitude install firmware-brcm80211 wireless-tools
modprobe -r brcmsmac ; modprobe brcmsmac

I'm assuming for different variants it would just be a thing of changing version - correct me if I'm wrong though.

Re: Broadcom Wireless help

Yes, but there are some users that like a OS with a desktop that looks like a giant smartphone. I`ve discussed it so often on our national computerforums, and belive it or not, W8 has a fanbase, and they actually seem to love everything that I hate about it:)

Re: Broadcom Wireless help

Interesting. I came this way because of a minor Wifi issue and I'm still trying to figure out what is going on.

I had tried Ubuntu and Xubuntu before and now I'm fairly new to CrunchBang. I decided to take a chance on Waldorf instead of (Stable) Statler. 

My Broadcom Wifi worked out of the box on my HP-Mini which surprised me. However, it seems to occasionally lose the Wifi even though it still says I have 4 bars. It seems I can fix this by turning off my Wifi by just pushing the Wireless Signal button. So, I'm wondering if I need a different driver. I'll browse through some suggestions in here, but I wanted to share what my experience has been.
