• Broadcom BCM43142 Chip Wireless Driver Problem


    Hi. I have a Broadcom BCM43142 wifi wifi card on a Lenovo laptop. Wifi does not work with attached drivers ((b43, broadcom-wl, broadcom-wl-dkms).) I need (I think) STA driver (as shown in the attached image).
    The picture comes from Manjaro, which by default has these drivers and my wifi card works fine on these drivers. Please help how to install this driver on my Antergos. I’m a beginner, I use Antegros live CD.

    Regards
    drk

  • the broadcom-wl package should also work for uncustomized standard kernel…
    we do not need dkms for it …

    Of course, but that package without dkms was not useful and could not connect, just that ;)

  • @judd thx! Antergos works great!0_1495207424443_Zrzut ekranu z 2017-05-19 13-02-46.png

  • my asking was because broadcom-wl is from Antergos Repo, if it is not working, we may can make it working ;)

  • I think broadcom-wl-dmks is the best driver but when in my first attempt to install it i had couldn’t load the module on the kernel cause when i tried
    modprobe wl
    i had a message saying that the driver wl wasn’t found.
    The solution to this was to install de package linux-headers
    pacman -S linux-headers

  • Hi. Back to the topic. The default drivers do not work when booting from a live CD. However, after installing Antergos on the hard drive everything works beautifully with default broadcom-wl drivers.

    This usually happens with almost all distros, for that reason it is always good to have an Ethernet RJ45 connection cable on hand, since this connection is practically instantly taken to connect it, unlike WiFi, but since everything is relative , Can also sometimes fail … :) ;)
