HP Compaq Broadcom 4311 no longer works Kernel 4.4.1

Postby dlrapp » Jun 15th, '16, 22:11

My laptop, an HP Compaq nx6325, has a Broadcom 4311 wireless chip. A year ago using Mageia 4 the laptop worked pretty well most of the time. Some upgrades would cause me to have to issue a "rfkill unblock all" command to turn the wifi on (it was identified as wlan) then it worked just fine. When Mageia 5 came out it worked well until recently when kernel 4.4.1 came along, with other updates, the Broadcom chip ceased to function indeed it almost ceased to exist. I have tried b43 fw-cutter backports-4.4.2 all to no avail. I slipped a Knoppix live DVD in and booted up and thw wifi worked perfectly so the hardware is good. What can I do to get this darn Broadcom chip to work?

Which desktop environment are you using? And please provide the output of the following commands:

Code: Select all
lspcidrake -v | grep -iE "wlan|wifi|wireless|net"
ps -ef | grep -v grep | grep -iE "net|wpa"


and, as root:
Code: Select all
ifconfig -a
rfkill list all
systemctl status network.service -a
journalctl -ab | grep -iE "fw|firmware|iwl|wifi|wire|80211"

You're running the oldest kernel ... You mentioned in the subject that you have issues with kernel 4.4.1, and you have neither binary driver nor dkms module built for 4.4.1 so that seems expected.
And when you would have booted 4.4.1 once the dkms module for that should at least appear in the dkms status listing.

Can you please post the output of
Code: Select all
rpm -qa|sort|grep kernel

Hi Doktor5000,

When I started having problems after upgrading to kernel-4.4.1 I formatted my "/" partition (I have 2 partitions / and /home) and reinstalled Mageia 5 from DVD and started over. Here is the output you asked for.

Seems you're missing the kernel-desktop-latest metapackage to keep your kernel updated and you're actually missing the kernel-desktop-4.4.13-1.mga5

Hi Doktor5000,

When I reinstalled Mageia 5 I did not download kernel-4.4.1 when updating. So can my problem be corrected?

I just booted the new kernel and appear to have the same problem with a BCM4318 wifi chip that doesn't turn on.

Here's a poor picture of the errors I see in tty2,

I'm not sure how to debug this farther. :oops:

Seems it can't load the firmware, did you try to grab a newer one?
But it should be reported as bug, would be useful if you could paste the lines you showed in the screenshot.

Hi Doktor5000,

I have been busy. I reformatted my / partition and reinstalled Mageia5 x86-64 from DVD and after rfkill unblock all and pressing the button above the keyboard then rebooting I had a working wifi. I upgraded the system excluding kernel-4.4.13 and all is well. It boots very fast and works quite well. If you want to view the output from commands please advise. I can then attempt an upgrade to kernel-4.4.13 and view the result.

I don't need that output, you wanted to know why it doesn't work with kernel 4.4.x.

If you still want to know, there's no way around the update. If you don't want to know, then just leave it at that - it's your decision ;)

Hi Doktor5000,

I prefer to use the latest kernel - as long as it is an improvement. I will do the kernel update and see what happens. I will inform you of the results.

Hi Doktor,

I upgraded the kernel and things went bad. Upon reboot the boot process was fast until the login screen appeared. After entering name and password it took five minutes to clear the login screen and ten minutes later I had a white pointer on a black screen and ten minutes later - no change. I have now rebooted to kernel 3.19.x and ifconfig tells me there is no wireless interface. I am back in ethernet and ready to answer your requests.

Re: HP Compaq Broadcom 4311 no longer works Kernel 4.4.1

Hi Doktor5000,

I have a friend with me and he knows much more about Linux than I. He had me run lspci -vnn -d 14e4:

Code: Select all
[root@lappy dlrapp]# lspci -vnn -d 14e4:
02:01.0 Ethernet controller [0200]: Broadcom Corporation NetXtreme BCM5788 Gigabit Ethernet [14e4:169c] (rev 03)
        Subsystem: Hewlett-Packard Company Device [103c:30b0]
        Physical Slot: 1-2
        Flags: bus master, 66MHz, medium devsel, latency 64, IRQ 23
        Memory at d4000000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=64K]
        Expansion ROM at <ignored> [disabled]
        Capabilities: [48] Power Management version 2
        Capabilities: [50] Vital Product Data
        Capabilities: [58] MSI: Enable- Count=1/8 Maskable- 64bit+
        Kernel driver in use: tg3
        Kernel modules: tg3

30:00.0 Network controller [0280]: Broadcom Corporation BCM4311 802.11a/b/g [14e4:4312] (rev 01)
        Subsystem: Hewlett-Packard Company Broadcom 802.11a/b/g WLAN [103c:1360]
        Flags: bus master, fast devsel, latency 0, IRQ 18
        Memory at c8000000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=16K]
        Capabilities: [40] Power Management version 2
        Capabilities: [58] MSI: Enable- Count=1/1 Maskable- 64bit-
        Capabilities: [d0] Express Legacy Endpoint, MSI 00
        Capabilities: [100] Advanced Error Reporting
        Capabilities: [13c] Virtual Channel
        Kernel driver in use: b43-pci-bridge
        Kernel modules: ssb


My chip is identified as a 4312 (rev 01) not a 4311!

Hi Ken,

Yes that is the "14e4:4312" following the bcm4311 in the response to the lspci command.
