After building and installing the new module, it is best to test that injection is working correctly. In some particular cases, after installing the firmware-binstaller you need to remove the b43 module, enable it again and even proceed to unblock with rfkill:.

Search for the package in the Ubuntu Package Repositories Make sure you select the correct architecture Bit, Bit, etc.

To be clear with referencing the different IDs, make sure to consult the STA link above prior to reading on, and comprare to yours via:. If you have a Broadcom card that has a different pci. If you’re behind on versions, I’d suggest the upgrade but for a quick fix, you can take a look at the mainline kernels and try one of those.

B43 supports the fragmentation attack, and it’s much more stable than bcm43xx.
