Description Alko 2012-09-11 23:07:29 MSD
Wireless didn't work on ASUS eee pc 1215n with broadcom bcm4313.
After searching around I found the solution on: http://www.lxg.de/code/broadcom-4353-wireless-et-al-opensource-howto with exception of:

cd /lib/firmware
mkdir brcm
cp bcm43xx-0.fw brcm/bcm43xx-0.fw
cp bcm43xx_hdr-0.fw brcm/bcm43xx_hdr-0.fw
modprobe -r brcmsmac && modprobe brcmsmac

After reboot, wireless was alive :)

You just needed to install kernel-firmware-extra package.
Comment 2 Denis Koryavov 2012-09-14 19:00:37 MSD
Can we add this package to the installation image (for RM2012 EE) by default?
Comment 3 Alexander Burmashev 2012-09-14 19:02:39 MSD
it should be there already
Comment 4 Denis Koryavov 2012-09-14 19:03:13 MSD
Ah, OK.
Comment 5 Alko 2012-09-15 12:34:48 MSD
Ok, even better :) I didn't notice that solution
