Description Bob Merhebi 2012-09-24 10:16:51 UTC
Thought the Broadcom STA driver is activated, still the Broadcom BCM4312 chip isn't working on Ubuntu 12.04 x86_64 (used to work on 10.04 i686).

Tried this: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/WifiDocs/Driver/bcm43xx#Identifying_Your_Card.2BAC8-Driver

There already exists 2 relevant bugs on launchpad:

Moreover, I realized that pressing the wireless button on my Dell Studio XPS 1640 leads to a 
keyboard: can't emulate rawmode for keycode 240
keyboard: can't emulate rawmode for keycode 240

error, whether the wifi works or not.

This might be related to the keyboard error error: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1745681

This error also seems to be submitted on RedHat's kernel Bugzilla: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=735516

Just a quick update: now most of the times the chip is working; on rare occasions it doesn't!

not sure about the reason!

We don't support closed source drivers, really...
