• after latest updates 'no Wifi adaptor found' plus Ethernet problems


    Hi

    No problems for long time, network never failed and since some latest updates i have two network problems:

    • Wifi not working because ‘no Wifi adaptor found’.
    • Laptop freezes when i connect Ethernet cable when already booted. When putting Ethernet cable before booting that works.

    Already downgraded ‘wpa_supplicant’ because read that in a post here.

    My Bluetooth/Wifi card (MacBook Pro Late 2009) when i command:

    lspci -nn -d 14e4
    
    04:00.0 Network controller [0280]: Broadcom Inc. and subsidiaries BCM4322 802.11a/b/g/n Wireless LAN Controller [14e4:432b] (rev 01)
    

    Installed:
    b43-firmware (6.30.163.46-7) and other needed network drivers that worked like before.

  • @bartatantergos
    Have you tried a different kernel?

  • What will say the LTS (long time support) one…

  • Hi

    The problem is/was that also the Ethernet cable connection freezes the laptop. So couldn’t connect at all and install nothing.

    Yesterday I found out that the Ethernet cable connection works when:
    • connect the Ethernet cable first
    • at boot I enter Grub with e
    • change nothing and boot with f10

    Strange but only then Ethernet cable connection works.

    So, yes now I can try to put the LTS kernel and test that.

    To be sure; is it ok that I have put ‘wpa_supplicant’ in the Pamac exclude list? So, that it doesn’t get updated?

    do not update a certain package is not good for long period, only for short solving of upgrade problems

  • Yes, i know and will take it out later.
    Thanks.

  • @bartatantergos
    The problem you’ve had really sounds strange.

    As just a guess, it might be some tricky corrupted package causing problems.
    If so, then it might help to reinstall all packages (but remember to remove all package excludes before that).

    You’ll get all natively installed packages with commmand

    pacman -Qnq
    

    and that command can be used as a helper when installing:

    pacman -S $(pacman -Qnq)
    

    This is just a thought, it may also help nothing.

    You could also check packages with

    pacman -Dk
    

    This may also help checking packages: https://forum.antergos.com/topic/11283/issues-with-update-and-cups/3

  • @bartatantergos

    wpa_supplicant without updating answers your post question. :)

  • @bartatantergos will need journal logs to get into what is going wrong…

  • @Manuel Will try first the LTS and will then try to reinstall the packages.

  • @judd Yes, I have done that after the problems started. I have read that in some post here.
    But your sentence isn’t clear: Do you mean I have to update ‘wpa_supplicant’ because there is a ‘fixed’ one or keep it like it is?

  • @joekamprad Will try first the LTS first and let you know then.

    yes

    pacman -Qs wpa_supplicant ??

    #last version 2:2.6-2

  • @judd Ok, installed the new one but after reboot still ‘no Wifi adaptor found’ and Bluetooth Broadcom ‘Not Set Up’.
    So, will try the LTS now.

  • LTS installed and booted but still ‘no Wifi adaptor found’ and Bluetooth Broadcom ‘Not Set Up’?
    Weird, what has changed since a month ago after all what working?
    I don’t remember a kernel update that could cause this problem?

    … checked the packages but seams ok.

    BCM4322

    Hmm thinking fast …

    sudo wifi-menu ??

    https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Broadcom_wireless#Manually

    Read this but it seams not recommended?

    rmmod b43
    

    gives error:

    rmmod: ERROR: module b43 is not currently loaded
    

    So, the driver isn’t loaded at all?

    b43-firmware and b43-fwcutter is installed

  • @judd That gives ‘Please install ‘dialog’ to use wifi-menu’.
    What’s ‘dialog’?

  • Please install ‘dialog’ to use wifi-menu

    dialog is a dialog box to interact with wifi-menu.
