Ubuntu – WiFi stops working after waking from suspend with a Broadcom 43225


wired connection works but I am forced to reboot if I want wifi to start working again.

I have an acer one 721-3801 on 10.10. help?

I have the broadcom 43225 driver if that helps… (I am very new to ubuntu so please let me know if you need any additional info)

  • What does reboot do? Stop networking-manager, unload the module, reload the module and start nm.

    I'm not sure, what the module-name for your driver is. I guess b43. You could do:

    sudo /etc/init.d/network-manager stop
    sudo rmmod b43
    sudo modprobe b43
    sudo /etc/init.d/network-manager start

    and try if it helps.
