Dell E6220 no wifi network

Post by Detroit_Bad_Boy on Wed Aug 31, 2016 5:52 am

I have installed chalet OS. The laptop has the broadcom BCM43228 802.11a/b/g/n wifi device. I need a driver for this laptop so that my wife can have wi-fi on it. No clue where to find or how to install the driver

The driver you requested can be found here:

https://www.broadcom.com/docs/linux_sta/hybrid-v35_64-nodebug-pcoem-6_30_223_271.tar.gz

Extract the tar.gz to a folder, navigate to it, right click, open in terminal.

I believe this app is compiled with these commands:

Code:
make
sudo make install

If that doesnt work or you don't understand the instructions please let me know

Thank you for using Chalet OS!

I'm back. Good morning

You will probably need a restart yes

The restart didn't work. Here is what I got with iwconfig command:

lo        no wireless extensions.

eno1      no wireless extensions.

wlx001e2ad22ef4  IEEE 802.11bg  ESSID:"Kemp"  
         Mode:Managed  Frequency:2.462 GHz  Access Point: CC:03:FA:39:FA:D8  
         Bit Rate=48 Mb/s   Tx-Power=20 dBm  
         Retry short limit:7   RTS thr:off   Fragment thr:off
         Power Management:off
         Link Quality=70/70  Signal level=-31 dBm  
         Rx invalid nwid:0  Rx invalid crypt:0  Rx invalid frag:0
         Tx excessive retries:46  Invalid misc:0   Missed beacon:0

Where you see that it shows I am connected to wifi is only because I am using a wifi dongle on this laptop. I'm concerned about eno1. This laptop uses the eth0 format. I wonder if the re-name is the conflict?

alright. You ran bot "make" and "sudo make install"? were there any errors? try compiling again and paste output here.

This is the output from the make commands:

teresa@teresa-Latitude-E6220:~/Documents/stuff$ make

make[1]: Entering directory '/usr/src/linux-headers-4.4.0-36-generic'

Again, this is the output with the wifi dongle connected via usb

This is the output with the dongle removed:

I wonder if resetting bios defaults might resolve it?

I doubt that would do anything. Strange that driver does not work. I'm guessing it may be a hardware issue?? Not sure.

It's not hardware, as win 7 is isntalled side by side with chalet. The wifi works just fine there. When I installed linux lite it worked GREAT. Also manjaro 16 with the XFCE DE worked fine also. I am beginning to suspect a corrupt DL of Chalet. Or it could be one of those oddball things where the OS does not install properly via flash drive.

That's funny. Maybe @Dai_Trying would know what to do...

Well here is a solution I am working right now. I blew away chalet thru win 7. Now I am re-installing it with the ethernet cable attached so I have internet connection. This time I am having it install updates and 3rd party software for wi-fi, etc. The last time I chose not to do that and that may have been the error

I just looked up the specs on that laptop and it tells me the wireless controller is Dell wireless 1501 and the wireless protocol is 802.11n, Bluetooth 3.0. Not sure if I was attacking it the wrong way

try these commands. Might work for a Dell 1501:

Code:
sudo apt remove bcmwl-kernel-source
sudo apt install firmware-b43-installer
sudo apt purge bcmwl-kernel-source broadcom-sta-common broadcom-sta-source
sudo apt install b43-fwcutter firmware-b43-installer

Then, unplug ethernet, reboot, and plug it in after full reboot.

When I ran the remove command for bcmwl-kernel-source it did not find it on the pc.

Also, Dai_Trying does not accept PMs. I'll look in the posts for that nic

I'm fairly sure I found the issue with the wi-fi....
Windows 7 crashed. Why am I not surprised?
Ah well, re-installing windows 7 and chalet os. I am sure that will take care of it


IF the restore files aren't corrupted. It says it will take a few minutes with win 7 and it's going on 20 mins. Worst case, blow away windows and go straight linux

sounds like windows 7 Neutral If you ****really**** need windows I'd do windows vista sp 2 with a few extra enhancements to make it nice and stable. 7 is a memory hogger and a system crasher unfortunately.

Or if you have 4 gb of ram or greater make a windows VM.

I have, sadly enough uninstalled chalet os from the laptop. I installed another distro and it works. Wife was giving static over the wifi dongle.
However, I do still have it installed on my desktop machine and it works fine, including wifi
