Which desktop environment are you using? Do you use net_applet or NetworkManager?
And please provide the output of the following commands:

Code: Select all
lspcidrake -v | grep -i -e net -e wireless -e wifi
ps -ef | grep -v grep | grep -ie net -e 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"

Your question is probably, how to log in as root in konsole?
Type in the konsole-terminal:
Code: Select all

and give the right password.

You forgot one command, which shows if the correct firmware gets loaded or not:
doktor5000 wrote:and, as root:
Code: Select all
journalctl -ab | grep -iE "fw|firmware|iwl|wifi|wire|80211"


But I think I know what the problem is: ssb driver is loaded instead of the real driver for your wireless chip. The b43 driver supports your chipset, check http://wireless.kernel.org/en/users/Dri ... ed_devices
ssb : Broadcom Corporation|BCM4312 802.11b/g LP-PHY [NETWORK_OTHER] (vendor:14e4 device:4315 subv:1028 subd:000b) (rev: 01)


Please also show the output as normal user of
Code: Select all
rpm -qa | grep firmware
urpmq --list-media active --list-url

So it seems blacklisting is not working as it should.

Maybe it helps if you install the correct firmware for b43 driver. Either install b43-openfwwf package via Mageia repos, or see the instructions further below.
Please also show the output as root of
Code: Select all
rfkill list all
journalctl -ab | grep -i -e ssb -e b43 -e acer_wmi -e bcma


Please take a look at viewtopic.php?p=9837#p9837 to see if you can use that to get the correct firmware, if the b43-openfwwf doesn't work.
For the current URLs to download b43-fwcutter you may need to look at http://wireless.kernel.org/en/users/Dri ... oned_above

Broadcoms are problem wifi cards.

First of all, you need to try install dkms-broadcom-wl and reboot computer. May be your wifi card will work fine with proprietary driver.

If it will not help:
- Delete dkms-broadcom-wl and broadcom-wl-kernel packages.
- Install b43-fwcutter and b43-tools packages
- Then do next actions with terminal
Code: Select all
cd ~
wget http://www.lwfinger.com/b43-firmware/broadcom-wl-5.100.138.tar.bz2
tar xjf broadcom-wl-5.100.138.tar.bz2
cd broadcom-wl-5.100.138/linux
su
<yours root password>
b43-fwcutter -w /lib/firmware wl_apsta.o
modprobe b43
exit

- After you need to go to: Mageia control center - Network & Internet - Set up a new network interface - Wireless (Wi-Fi). Choose something like wlp3s0.

Those actions helped me to configure same wifi card on Mageia 2 two years ago. I think for Mageia 4 steps shall to be similar.
Unfortunately, I no longer have netbook with bcm4312, so I cannot to check it with Mageia 4.
