Running Wifi on Ubuntu 8.10 (HP 6515b)

Intrepid Ibex comes with the Broadcom STA driver which has wl.ko module but ssb and b43 modules r loaded..

Add folowing lines to /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist

blacklist ssb

blacklist b43

Reboot and check if your wifi is working or not .

If not (and the modules still got loaded into memory)

delete following modules

/lib/modules/’uname -r ‘/kernel/drivers/ssb/ssb.ko


/lib/modules/’uname -r ‘/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/b43/b43.ko
