Lenovo Ideapad S10-2 Unbunto 10.04 Netbook Live CD no WIFI
« on: October 06, 2010, 07:13:30 PM »
I have read a great deal of help suggestions to install the broadcom driver for this build to no avail

I am posting my terminal details:

Is this something that can be done in the live cd version?

thanks for any advice

i do not really know how i fixed this i was unable to load the STA driver
it failed over and over
but i was able to connect following these steps

b43/STA - No Internet access

If you do not have any other means of Internet access on your computer, you will have to install the bcmwl-kernel-source package from the restricted folder under ../pool/restricted/b/bcmwl on the Ubuntu install media.

Step 1.

Navigate the install media and double click to install or navigate the install media and install these packages consecutively in a terminal (under the desktop menu Applications > Accessories > Terminal):

../pool/main/d/dkms

:/dkms/$ sudo dpkg -i dkms*

../pool/main/p/patch

:/patch/$ sudo dpkg -i patch*

../pool/main/f/fakeroot

:/fakeroot/$ sudo dpkg -i fakeroot*

../pool/restricted/b/bcmwl

:/bcmwl/$ sudo dpkg -i bcmwl-kernel-source*

This is a great description of the process for installing the drivers for the broadcom WIFI. I was able to use them, with only a little modification, for an earlier version of Ubuntu,  9.10. 
My situation is this, I had Ubuntu 9.10 Karmic Koala, which had been installed by DELL on my Latitude 2110.  This netbook worked great until I was doing some Ubuntu updates and then the wifi broke.

The key is, that the 9.10 ubuntu available from ubuntu.com is not the same as that provided by Dell, in that there are more current (april 2010) drivers for Broadcom.  The modified steps [applied to the 9.1 installation] that I took are these.

../pool/main/d/dkms

:/dkms/$ sudo dpkg -i dkms*

../pool/main/p/patch

:/patch/$ sudo dpkg -i patch*

../pool/main/f/fakeroot

:/fakeroot/$ sudo dpkg -i fakeroot*

  [ADDITIONAL STEP THAT WAS NEEDED IN MY CONFIGURATION TO PREVENT ERRORS WHEN INSTALLING BROADCOM.  THE LINUX SOURCE MAY BE REQUIRED LATER]
  apt-get install linux-headers-$(uname -r)


Located .deb install for broadcom that was
a. from the dell 9.1 installation DVD. 
    /media/Dell Ubuntu Reinstallation Media/debs/bcmwl/


b. What I found in the above folder seemed much more current than what was at ubuntu.com for 9.10
   23 Feb 2010  bcmwl-kernel-source_5.60.48.36+bdcom-0ubuntu2_i386.deb

  [The one that came w/ publicly available 9.1 at ubuntu was dated 1 Jul 2009 that came in the restricted folder  bcmwl-kernel-source_5.10.91.9+bdcom-0ubuntu4_i386.deb, I don't recommend!]

c. Installed the 23 Feb 2010 version

d. Rebooted [out of habit]
 
e. Now my WiFi works great, again!

It makes me very wary about upgrading my Ubuntu to 10.1

Thanks for all your help.
