My wifi is wep-encrypted but in kernel modules see lib89211_crypt_tkip.ko loaded suppose should be lib89211_crypt_wep.ko.
The question is: is it possible(and how if is) to load proper lib module without rebooting/making save-file so that I could be able to work live? any ideas? what info should I submit? where to dig?
my distro precise 5.6. should i try another networkmanager?


Hi for_wov

I'm afraid I'm not expert enough in wifi crypto to know which crypto module should be loaded for wep encryption.

Precise 5.6 has the wl driver built into the iso image. Rerwin's logic will be deciding that your Broadcom variant is best supported by the wl driver.

If you are prepared to experiment, you could try using the BootManager to blacklist the module you suspect and to force load the crypt_wep module. This will need savefile creation and reboot to work.

Have you determined which variant of Broadcom wifi you have (see earlier posts for command) and checked to see which driver supports your variant?

Cheers
peebee

mine is BCM4313 and wl module loaded. BTW noticed in frisbee's "Manage Saved Networks" tab encryption type TKIP but my wify network is WEP. can anybody tell where can I change encryption type in frisbee. OR is it better to install another networkmanager? SNS(simple network setup by BK)even does not see wl's network interfaces. Thanks in advance.

strange thing wl works fine on slackos and precises after rebooting [networkwizard+frisbee]no problems though my driver should be brcmsmac or brcmfmac (THANKS PEEPBEE). the thing is I only wanted to work without rebooting with wifi to bee true live(on my laptop,at least, for experiments).love "drunken puppyes" Smile (puppy+wine). will continue "spoiling" my pup Smile.

PostPosted: Thu 11 Jul 2013, 16:35    Post subject: Slacko 5.6alpha1 with kernel 3.10  

I've compiled a version of the wl driver for Slacko 5.6Alpha1 with kernel 3.10 non-pae

see:
http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=712922#712922

This version uses patches found by pemasu + the "wlan" patch.
see: https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/broadcom-wl/?comments=all

As k3.10 non-pae may not be used in the final Slacko5.6 this compile is a "proof of concept" experiment for now.

Cheers
peebee

Please forgive my ignorance-does broadcom- wl drivers include iwlwifi from puppy slacko 5.6? I suspect it does but don't know. It may provide a solution for me wherein I cannot yet obtain WPA/PSK encryption on an Intel 5100 wireless adapter. I will read more of the posts and experiment.

Toshiba satellite M300 [i686-32bit]
Intel 5100 wireless adapter
ET T45T mob fone [Android 4.x]
slacko 5.6, kernel 3.4.52 PAE #1 SMP WED july 1010:53:04 EST 2013
full install
driver: iwlwifi

WEP encryption avail in PC, but not in fone,

if an upgrade will fix it, pls advise.
WPA/PSK/Txxx " fone " PC

9 local networks detected by frizbee-have to use open connection or cable.

The wl driver is just for Broadcom wifi devices - details at:
http://wireless.kernel.org/en/users/Drivers/b43#Supported_devices

The iwlwifi driver is different and is for Intel devices (I believe).

PostPosted: Mon 10 Feb 2014, 14:39    Post subject: broadcom 43142 / 4365 wlan  

I have a Lenovo B490 laptop & it has a broadcom wireless Lan. The chipset as reported by Linux Mint 16 is BCM 43142 & it works with the wl driver. Using the same computer with Puppy Linux Precise 5.6.1 & 5.7.1 the chipset is reported as BCM 4365 & it does not work with the wl driver. I have tried all the three options in the connection wizard with no detection of the hardware. I have even loaded the wl module manually with no positive results. Please help.

Can you see which version of the driver Linux Mint has - it will be shown in dmesg in a terminal.

Precise has the 5.110 version of the driver - 6.30 is now the current version - it would need to be compiled for Precise's kernel if your chip needs it....which Precise are you using - the pae version or the retro non-pae version?

Also Precise 5.7.1 has a known fault where the wifi is disabled on boot - again in a terminal do

rfkill list

if your wifi is blocked do

rfkill unblock wlan

if this is the problem you will need to put this line into

/etc/rc.d/rc.local

Cheers
