I'm trying to get WLAN working on my HP625 laptop.
I've checked several web pages but I'm lost.
I'm using a recent kernel (3.3-rc5+).
I configured CONFIG_BRCMUTIL=m CONFIG_BRCMSMAC=m CONFIG_BRCMFMAC=m and
I installed the coresponding firmware in /lib/firmware/brcm
Now, lspci -k shows
06:00.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4313 802.11b/g/n
Wireless LAN Controller (rev 01)
Subsystem: Hewlett-Packard Company Device 145c
Kernel driver in use: bcma-pci-bridge
wlan0 IEEE 802.11bgn ESSID
Mode:Managed Access Point: Not-Associated Tx-Power=0 dBm
Retry long limit:7 RTS thr
ff Fragment thr
I have net.wlan0 symlinked to net.lo.
Now, when I try
the screen gets blanked on a console as well as from an XTerm
and the kernel crashes totally, i.e. the emergency reboot doesn't work
either. And trying to do an strace with output to a file shows that
even this output file doesn't exist (i.e. hasn't been closed)
So, what can I try next?
Many thanks for a hint,
