|I had wifi working on my laptop for a few hours and celebrated this accomplishment by doing an update world over the connection, after rebooting scan returns no results. I've tried iwlist and scanning from wpa_supplicant. Neither finds any of the 12 networks around me.
I'm using the broadcom-sta driver to support the bcm43228 card in my dell latitude e6330.
I tried re-emerging the broadcom-sta driver but that resolved nothing. I don't see anything that hs changed so I'm at a loss as to where to start working on this.
Here is my kernel config (although I wouldn't think anything kernel related has changed).
Here is the iwconfig for the wireless adapter
|wlp2s0 IEEE 802.11abg ESSID:off/any
Mode:Managed Access Point: Not-Associated Tx-Power=200 dBm
Retry long limit:7 RTS thr:off Fragment thr:off
The broadcom module is still there but doesn't appear to be used (which seems like a problem).
|Module Size Used by
wl 4113326 0
It appears to be loading properly since these are the only wl related messages in dmesg:
|[ 7.977974] wl: module license 'Mixed/Proprietary' taints kernel.

nor /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf appear to have changed
What should I be looking at next?
