    lsmod | grep -i wl:
    
    Gives nothing!
    When i runs

    Code:
    apt-get install frimware-b43-installer
    
    it gives following:
    
    "No chroot environment found. Starting normal installation
    This card is actually not tested. Please install the driver manually."
    Than i ve gone to:
    http://www.broadcom.com/support/802.11/linux_sta.php

    Followed the installation guide. GIves following when i do make ( of course after "make clean"):

    Code:
    make
    KBUILD_NOPEDANTIC=1 make -C /lib/modules/`uname -r`/build M=`pwd`
    make[1]: entrant dans le répertoire « /usr/src/linux-headers-3.7-trunk-686-pae »
    Wireless Extension is the only possible API for this kernel version
    Using Wireless Extension API
      LD      /root/Desktop/built-in.o
      CC [M]  /root/Desktop/src/shared/linux_osl.o
      CC [M]  /root/Desktop/src/wl/sys/wl_linux.o
    /root/Desktop/src/wl/sys/wl_linux.c:43:24: fatal error: asm/system.h: Aucun fichier ou dossier de ce type
    compilation terminated.
    make[4]: *** [/root/Desktop/src/wl/sys/wl_linux.o] Erreur 1
    make[3]: *** [_module_/root/Desktop] Erreur 2
    make[2]: *** [sub-make] Erreur 2
    make[1]: *** [all] Erreur 2
    make[1]: quittant le répertoire « /usr/src/linux-headers-3.7-trunk-686-pae »
    make: *** [all] Erreur 2
    So it says that "asm/system.h" is missing...

    I need help. I ve googled and tried all what was possible for me, but wireless connection still not working!
    Yes i ve activated WIFI : i have a button for this on my Dell laptop. I have Bluetooth linked also to this button and it is actif!
    Thank you in advance

    browse to the src/wl/sys/ directory then:

    Code:
    nano wl_linux.c
    Search for the following line and remove it.
    Code:
    #include <asm/system.h>
    then search for the string
    Code:
    .ndo_set_multicast_list
    and replace it with
    Code:
    .ndo_set_rx_mode
    Save the file and try to recompile.

    Hope this helps

    Hello root-boy, i actually found the solution to this problem:
    Source:

    http://www.mindwerks.net/2012/06/wir...nd-3-5-kernel/

    I copy past all, in case if the thread on destination forum is removed:

    Code:
    The hybrid driver from Broadcom is still a bit behind in terms of support for the latest kernels but there are workarounds. This particular issue also effects other kernel modules such as the out of tree Nvidia and ATI blobs that require the asm/system.h file in their includes. 
    
    I’ve had success with replacing it with asm/switch_to.h which seems to have fixed things for now. The cause for this can be found on the LKML.
    
    Chipsets supported by “Broadcom’s IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n hybrid Linux® device driver” are: BCM4311, BCM4312, BCM4313, BCM4321, BCM4322, BCM43224, and BCM43225, BCM43227 and BCM43228.
    
    
    Errors:

     make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/linux-headers-3.5.0-030500rc3-generic’
     make: *** [all] Error 2 
    
    The rundown:
    Download the 32 or 64-bit version:
    http://www.broadcom.com/support/802.11/linux_sta.php
    Download my patches: bc_wl_abiupdate.patch and switch_to.patch
    Extract the sources:
    cd ~/Downloads; mkdir -p wl; cd wl; tar xf ../hybrid-portsrc*.tar.gz
    Patch and compile the sources:
    patch -p0 src/wl/sys/wl_linux.c < ~/Downloads/switch_to.patch; patch -p0 src/wl/sys/wl_linux.c < ~/Downloads/bc_wl_abiupdate.patch;
     make; sudo make install; sudo depmod; sudo modprobe wl 
    
    Give Ubuntu a few seconds after loading the “wl” kernel module, then eventually the Network Manager will start looking for wireless networks.
    
    TL;DR: These patches are required for a working wl kernel module for the 3.4 and 3.5 kernel series.
    
    Update: Also verified to work with Linux 3.6 series.
    the Files to download(described in this guide) :

    REMOVE the additionnal extention .txt, because the *.patch is not allowed to ad in this forum

    switch_to.patch.txt
    bc_wl_abiupdate.txt

    Hi at all!!
    I've got the same broadcom card but I my network manager doesn't see any wireless connections...

    I'm watching this thread with interest; I have the same issue. When I initially installed Kali (dual boot, Win7), WICD didn't install, so I had to re-install. Now, WICD shows up, but I get a message stating no wireless networks found. To date, I have:

    added lines to the sources.list (http.kali.org /kali, and /wheezy)
    apt-get update
    apt-get install
    apt-get install firmware-b43-lpphy-installer
    modprobe 43

    iwconfig doesn't turn up any wireless adapters, but broadcom does show up as a result of lsusb.

    I've also tried wicd stop
    ifconfig wlan0 down
    ifconfig wlan0 up
    wicd start

    That set of commands just says that device not found.

    Anything else I could/should be trying ? Thanks in advance.

    bcm43228 is not supported by linux open driver, you need to install the wl driver (propietary driver): http://www.broadcom.com/support/802.11/linux_sta.php

    You will need the linux-headers and the build-essential before compiling the vendor's driver.

    Luck.

    hi guys i bought a acer laptop with a bcm43228 and then i install kali, update, upgrade everything, install STA driver to get my wireless card working, but no way for aircXck-ng suite especially the monitor mode wasn't working, then in fact the only way to make it working and it's working really good so the trick after days of fight is to update your kernel image and sources to at least 2.17+, i upgrade to 2.18 rc5, then update your grub, install driver b43 fw cutter and b43 driver, then make sure your driver WL ( if was working on your 2.14 kali system) is unload or absent, then modprobe b43 and ssd and you got it ... Everything is working now ! make a persistent for all boot, and you roxx !

    sorry for my french english

    Take care cheers guys
