Re: wireless problem.



I also have wireless problems under F12.  In my case the problem has to do with network strength.  I have a laptop that dual boots Windows 7 and F12.  Under Windows 7 I can see and connect to more wireless networks than I can under F12.  In all cases that I have tried if the signal is low or poor F12 will never succeed in connecting, but W7 will.  I have tried both the internal wireless (Intel 3945) and an external Linksys USB adapter.  Even if the signal is good F12 will not report available wireless connections.

I normally run F12 so if there is anything I can tweek on F12 to improve accessibility I would like to know.

Thanks,
Paolo

Hi :)
I checked that, no compelling exists. Also I installed that firmware manually but it did not work neither. :(
Instructions I done worked with previous Fedora releases.
Best,

Check to see what dmesg says. You may need the broadcom firmware, and
you may need to install it manually. Usually it goes into /lib/firmware.
You may need to install b43_fwcutter as well as b43_openfwwf. But first,
check dmesg to see if it is complaining about firmware. My laptop has a
Broadcom card, but it is currently running Ubuntu, and installing
b43_fwcutter automatically obtains and installs the firmware.
