Instalación del dispositivo Broadcom 43xx en Debian

Los chipsets Broadcom BCM4303, BCM4306, BCM4309, BCM4311, BCM4312 y BCM4318 son usados en tarjetas inalámbricas Dell, HP Compaq, Asus, Linksys, Acer, Belkin, entre otras. En Linux el dispositivo usado es b43. Si el chipset es BCM4306 Rev 2 o solo posee 802.11b, usa el dispositivo b43legacy.

Instalación del firmware

El firmware de Broadcom se descarga e instala con la ayuda del paquete b43-fwcutter. Instala este paquete con,

# apt-get install b43-fwcutter

antes de cargar el módulo.

Módulos del núcleo

A partir de Lenny los módulos b43 y b43legacy vienen incluidos en el núcleo.

Carga el módulo en el núcleo,

# modprobe b43

o

# modprobe b43legacy

Vendor y device ID

Corre lspci y busca las palabras "Ethernet controller" o "Network controller" y referencias a "Wireless" o la norma 802.11. Por ejemplo,

$ lspci
03:00.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation Dell Wireless 1390 WLAN Mini-PCI Card (rev 02)

La primera columna arroja los números del bus PCI al cual la tarjeta está conectada con el formato <bus>:<slot>:<func>. Corre,

lspci -n -s <bus>:<slot>:<func>

para determinar el vendor y device ID de la tarjeta. Por ejemplo,

$ lspci
03:00.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation Dell Wireless 1390 WLAN Mini-PCI Card (rev 02)

$ lspci -n -s 03:00.0
03:00.0 0280: 14e4:4311 (rev 02)

La tabla a continuación muestra el PCI vendor y device ID de los chipsets encontrados en estas tarjetas.
