How to configure the Broadcom BCM4312 wireless network in Ubuntu Server Linux. This is the wireless board of my old laptop model: (Philco PHN14003)
At first we need to confirm that you really have the BCM4312.
[email protected]:/# lspci | grep Network 02:00.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4312 802.11b/g LP-PHY (rev 01) [email protected]:/#
[email protected]:/# apt-get update
[email protected]:/# apt-get install b43-fwcutter firmware-b43-lpphy-installer
[email protected]:/# ifconfig wlan0 up
[email protected]:/# iwconfig
[email protected]:/# iwlist scan > log_wifi.txt
Than, you have to find your SSID inside your .txt file. In my case, the name is “safe”
[email protected]:/# wpa_passphrase MY_SSID MY_PASSWORD > /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf
You have to put your ssid and your wireless password as you see.
Thus, we have to edit the /etc/network/interfaces and put this:
<code>auto wlan iface wlan0 inet dhcp wpa-conf /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf</code>
That’s it! Just reboot with reboot -n and its working!
