the ap can't handle 54Mb/s (802.11g), so you should set rate to 11M (802.11b) ;)
The two rates work for me, the connection is very stable for rate=11M and unstable for rate=54M.

New problem....

I cannot seem to get eth1 to show.

ifconfig only brings up eth0 and lo

nothing out of the ordinary in dmesg and lsmod shows all the appropriate drivers.

Any ideas?

dmesg
Code:

ieee80211_crypt: registered algorithm 'NULL'
ieee80211: 802.11 data/management/control stack, git-1.1.7

ieee80211softmac: no version for "ieee80211_wx_get_scan" found: kernel tainted.
bcm43xx driver 0.0.1

lsmod
Code:

ieee80211              35048  2 bcm43xx,ieee80211softmac
ieee80211_crypt         7008  1 ieee80211


iwconfig
Code:

ocalhost home # iwconfig
eth0      no wireless extensions.

lo        no wireless extensions.

What a bad luck.

It is strange because my AP is a Linksys WRT54G and WAP54G.


I have the same AP ( WRT54G ) and I have the same error :(, have you found a solution ?.


P.S. I'm Spanish, excuse me, my english is so bad xD

If you have problem. Maybe you should test different snapshots versions ftp://ftp.berlios.de/pub/bcm43xx/snapshots/

The version 20051209 doesn't work for me (SoftMAC: assoc request timed out!), but the version 20051208 works fine.

I tried now with 20051208 and now I get:

So thinking that it works now, I run dhclient eth2 but:

Can you figure out which patchset broke association between the two revisions? Both work fine here.

fuoco,
You should try a static ip.

JoseJX,
I can update bcm43xx and bcm43xx-fwcutter to snapshot-20051210 without problem. So my problem is in the softmac changesets 174-188, I don't know how to find the exact patchset.

Thanks - that works ! So the problem is only with dhclient - is that normal ?
Also it's not totally stable, I get some lost packets for example when pinging.
I will start looking for the changeset of softmac that broke it then.

JoseJX: I tracked it down to changeset 175 in SoftMAC. starting with that changeset it doesn't associate and keeps timing out.

MoRPh3uSz:
Check to make sure that your wireless-tools (iwconfig) supports the wirless extensions version in your kernel, do an iwconfig -v

fuoco, bz31:
I'll look into it.

You don't have wireless support in your kernel.

Hi all,
I've got no kernel errors so far, but when starting any program that communicates with the module bcm43xx (ifconfig, iwconfig, rmmod bcm43xx) it gets stuck... dmesg don't gives any hints what happens... I've got an ibook g4 1,33ghz with kernel 2.6.15-rc5 including all necessary modules (firmware hotplug, ...). Maybe someone with the same configuration can post the exact versions and firmware versions he uses?
Thank you,
Quästor

If someone who is having issues with association could please capture the packets sent / recieved with a 3rd card so I can debug the problem, that would be helpful.

quaestor:
It sounds like the same problem sceptiq was having earlier. I don't have a solution for you, but it's most likely not the driver and definitely isn't the firmware.

Yes, I think it is the same problem... but do you think it can be caused by the kernel configuration? Could you please send me your .config? Has anybody ever achieved a working airport on the ibook g4 1,33ghz?

maybe it helps in solving the problem that lspci -vv does not recognize the airport extreme as airport extreme but says

quaestor:
That doesn't make a difference, the AE is just a broadcom chipset with an apple sticker on it. My config is not going to be any use to you, I've got a PB G4 500 without AE. If you could email me your config, I'll take a look at it.

edit: I figured out how to lock it up with iwconfig ethx essid, but not the others, I'll fix that.
edit again: Fixed in the main repo

MoRPh3uSz:
Glad it works for you. :)

Thanks and sorry for my bad english :o

No, we don't know why, but some people have problems with any Broadcast packet (ping, dhcp, etc). We're looking for a solution, be patient.

I could send you mine, but I'm not sure what you call working. It's the same as 2.6.14 generally. I have a problem with sleep and usb...
First I suggest you use the config from your current kernel and run in the sources dir 'make oldconfig'.
What kernel are you using now? and what laptop model is it exactly ?
