Re: No WIFI under HP Probook 4515s



Ok,

I have discovered the I chosen the wrong firmware. Then I discovered too
that I have an low-power Broadcom LP-PHY 1612. I have extracted the apsta
module successfully, but - there is no working wifi. What shall I do?

There is only one tiny little problem.

[zoltan@localhost ~]$ tar xjf broadcom-wl-4.150.10.5.3.tar.bz2
[zoltan@localhost ~]$ cd broadcom-wl-4.150.10.5.3/driver
[zoltan@localhost driver]$ b43-fwcutter -w /lib/firmware/ wl_apsta_mimo.o
Sorry, the input file is either wrong or not supported by b43-fwcutter.
This file has an unknown MD5sum b84bc801b9b8f39069c252f533655af8.

What's next?

Hi guys,
Currently I have run out of ideas about how to activate, and create an
working
wifi on my new machine. It uses an Broadcom PHY - Broadcom Corporation
BCM4312
802.11b/g LP-PHY [14e4:4315] (rev 01).
I have followed the the advices at linuxwireless.org - but no effect.
Maybe I
have made mistakes, or something went wrong - I couldn't tell that.

Hi,
this is the relevant page:

Next, download the Windows driver:
do not use the download link blindly; first check which driver is the
latest:
