Fwd: b43, pump, && *2*
when i do on the evo n115: $lynx www.knmi.nl it ens up bij telling me
i cannot get into *file://localhost/home/steef/www.knmi.nl*: something
seems to be not exactly how i should want it.
on a very old laptop, an evo n115, i installed a very lean squeeze daily
build without any problem. i inserted a wireless network controller
bcm4318, 802.11g (rev 02) (lspci) and installed wireless-tools and
firmware-b43-installer. so far so good.
sudo iwlist wlan0 scan (after sudo ifconfig wlan0 up) gives a list of
wireless devices in my neighbourhood. sudo ifconfig wlan0 up tells me
that firmware version b43-phy0 is loaded but that link is not ready:
*ADDCONF (NETDEV_UP): wlan0: link is not ready*. sudo pump -i wlan0
tells: operation failed and a small program like wifi-radar cannot find
(in a test with consent of one of my neighbours) an IP-address.
what to do to get the broadcom device going: so that browsing the
internet is possible?
btw: what should i do eventually in /etc/network/interfaces??
in /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules i can see the *pci device
thank you in advance for your advice!
