No Wifi on HP ProBook 650 G1 after update to IGEL OS 11.05.100


No Wifi on HP ProBook 650 G1 after update to 11.05.100. This setting to use the backport wifi driver modules is gone?

There is no firmware in /lib/firmware/b43…


Just in case, do you have a 18.04 by hand to check if it works there?


I will test it. It was working on 11.04.240.

It is not working out of the box on the Live / Installation media of Ubuntu 18.04.

But I just checked with an unused UD-Pocket with 10.2.150 where the wifi works. I can’t see any modules for wifi being loaded, so it’s probably build-in. It might use the firmware in /lib/firmware/bcrm, /lib/firmware/b43 is empty, too. It says: “wlan0: Broadcom BCM4359 802.11 Hybrid Wireless Controller 6.30.223.271 (r587334)”.

After installing Ubuntu 18.04 wifi works.


Looks like 11.05.112 build will fix this issue!


Thanks!
