Wow! Larry's patches really make all the difference. I can now use my iBook properly, without having the connection dropping every few minutes. A BIG thank you for everyone involved in this.

Has anyone gotten the BCM 4328 to work with this driver?

I got this feeling its not recognized because dmesg is very sparse.

Code:
May 13 11:22:34 srim ieee80211_crypt: unregistered algorithm 'NULL'
May 13 11:22:43 srim ieee80211_crypt: registered algorithm 'NULL'
May 13 11:22:43 srim ieee80211: 802.11 data/management/control stack, git-1.1.13
May 13 11:22:43 srim ieee80211: Copyright (C) 2004-2005 Intel Corporation <jketreno@linux.intel.com>
May 13 11:22:43 srim bcm43xx driver


I'm using firmware from a driver that is supposed to work with ndiswrapper (but doesn't work for me).

Here's the pertinent output of lspci:

Code:
        03:00.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation Unknown device 4328 (rev 03)
        Subsystem: Hewlett-Packard Company Unknown device 1366

This is a pre-N wireless device found in an HP DV9000Z AMD64 laptop.

I'm running x86_64 arch and the latest kernel (2.6.21-gentoo)

Thanks for any suggestions,

Raydude

Sorry, I haven't finished writing specs for the pre-N cards yet, it's not supported at this time.

Is the bcm4309 chipset supported? The bcm43xx site shows that it's partially supported (everything except 802.11a). I have a Dell D600 that I run ndiswrapper without any issues, but have been trying to get the bcm43xx code working. I can connect and associate, but by the time that it tries dhcpcd it's gone. I have just tried 2.6-21 with larry's patches but I get the same results I was getting with out the patches.

Hey, I just recently updated to gentoo-sources-2.6.20-r8 with Larry's combined_2.6.20.7.patch, now my wifi seems to get disconnected quite often and is then unable to obtain a new IP. I have to manually run
Code:
/etc/init.d/net.eth1 restart

and then I have no problems until a while longer it happens again. Is this a router issue? I'm connecting via WPA-PSK using wpa_supplicant and mac_changer.

dmesg

If anyone else is having problems with disconnects, using a static IP instead of DHCP seems to work well as a workaround. The interface seems to constantly re associate, but the connection doesn't break for very long.

Unfortunately not all routers allow static connections, such as my university.

I have exactly the same problem.

I've got the Airport Extreme on my iBook G4 4318 working perfectly following the directions on the first page of this topic. Thanks so much!!! That was the last thing I needed to get working on here. :) You made my day.

Make sure that you are using the latest patchset. If you're still having problems, try turning down the speed, it gets more reliable at lower speeds. The transmission power problems still haven't been 100% fixed, so in a noisy environment (like at university), the slower the better. Personally, I usually try connecting at 11M first. If that doesn't work, 1M usually works if the signal is adequate.

The reason why DHCP is failing is that the DHCP request or reply is getting lost. Dropping the speed usually fixes this.

It should work with 802.11b/g routers. Try setting your speed lower like psihodelia and koprimer. If it's still not working, please report it to upstream so st3 can take a look at it (he did the 4309 patches).

Just a noob question, how do you change the speed?

To set the rate to 1M:
# iwconfig ethX rate 1M

It depends on the stack. SoftMAC will reset it whenever the connection is reset (including reconnect after a dropped connection). Mac80211 will set the rate automatically despite whatever you set it to.

How is the new kernel working? (21.2)

Any improvements to 20.0? Since there are no new patches are there any improvements made or should I wait with updating?

I decided to give wpa a new go again (I wounder how long it will take me to get this working).

I start the device fine with /etc/conf.d/net start and connect to wpa_supplicant with wpa_cli for debbuging.

This is the output I get from my access point.
Code:

<2>Trying to associate with 00:13:46:42:61:88 (SSID='Sedrik.net' freq=2412 MHz)
<2>Associated with 00:13:46:42:61:88
<2>WPA: 4-Way Handshake failed - pre-shared key may be incorrect
<2>CTRL-EVENT-DISCONNECTED - Disconnect event - remove keys
<2>Trying to associate with 00:13:46:42:61:88 (SSID='Sedrik.net' freq=2412 MHz)
<2>Associated with 00:13:46:42:61:88
<2>WPA: 4-Way Handshake failed - pre-shared key may be incorrect
<2>CTRL-EVENT-DISCONNECTED - Disconnect event - remove keys


This is my wpa_supplicant conf.
Code:
# Allow wpa_cli to be runned by root only
ctrl_interface=/var/run/wpa_supplicant
ctrl_interface_group=root
eapol_version=2
ap_scan=1
fast_reauth=1
network={
        ssid="Sedrik.net"
        psk="<hidden>"
        priority=1
}
network={
        ssid="davvsbo"
        psk="<hidden>"
        priority=2
}
network={
        ssid="Mino"
        psk="<hidden>"
        priority=3
}
network={
        key_mgmt=NONE
        priority=9
}


Now the psk is correct. Is my config wrong in anyother way?

Hi, ALL,
I'm happy to report that I have a working DELL 1390 (bcm4311) card with the bcm43xx over the wireless-tools.
I'm using gentoo-sources 2.6.20 stable on x86 build with Larry's patchset for 2.6.21.

Everything works as expected.

Thank you., all.

The specs are close to being done, but nobody is working on the code for it yet. The stack itself (mac80211) needs some work as well, so either way, it's some ways off.

I've had some problems with my iBook recently and I'm wondering if there is a chance it could be caused by the bcm43xx wireless drivers. The first time I had my laptop repaired, the guy from whom I picked it up said he wasn't sure what was fixed but he thought it might have been the logic board. The second time, the logic board and wireless card were replaced. Should I worry that these problems might be caused by using wireless on Linux?

What kind of problems? It is *extremely* unlikely that bcm43xx has anything to do with hardware issues though.

I just have a quick question concerning the bcm4318. From my experience, I have immense connection problems with distant access points if I have my rate set to 24M, per default. If I switch it to 11M using iwconfig eth3 rate 11M, it works perfectly. The only problem is when my card has to re-associate and the rate gets changed back to 24M automatically. To combat this, I just run
Code:
watch -n 5 sudo iwconfig eth3 rate 11M


Is this an acceptable solution to my problem? Or is there a more elegant way to do this?

Thank you!

gave it another try and it is still failing at the 4-way handshake :(

Might be my router that is failing me (d-link), will try to see if it works at my friends home. Thanks anyway =)

Something like this patch should be a better fix, it'll set the default to 11M instead of 24M. You could also change it to be 1M by changing the constants if you'd rather use that.

Maybe check to make sure the crypto stuff required for your encryption is included in the kernel?

Just a stupid question but which crypto algorithm should I enable? I got MD5 support compiled into the kernel but haven't been able to find any other info on which one is needed.
