At the moment I have to do it manually. During the instalation I choosed to download important features during the installation. As a convenience, Ubuntu offers two versions of this driver: The questions are, why does my system not use the blacklist to prevent module bcm43xx from loading at boot time, why is it so difficult and unpredictable to remove the module bcm43xx, are there any workarounds, is my installation corrupt? Please visit this page to clear all LQ-related cookies. I installed Redhat nash version 5. But after installing the OS onto the hard drive with the Ethernet connection that it insisted upon before starting installation , the system gives the “blacklisted” error when it tries to install the wifi driver after reboot.

Instead, an investigation would need to occur to see if the version available for your release should be updated. If it install your done. The bcmwl-kernel-source package aims to offer a later version for a given release.

After this, the module is loaded automatically, everything works again. I still think the answer to your most recent question revolves around what modules and drivers are automatically loaded by your kernel, as I suggested, run lsmod I accidentally typed lspci, and edited my last post – sorry.
