For more granular support information, please see their wiki page here. If you have a modem or router to connect, how about getting an ethernet cable and connect to the internet this way to set up your wireless adapter? I had just recently downloaded Linux Mint onto my computer, and I downloaded a bit driver for wireless, but I don’t know how to install it. If necessary, firmware can be manually acquired and extracted using the bfwcutter utility, see http: The only ‘system’ I have is: Sign up or log in Sign up using Google. How do I add Wireless driver for my laptop?

[SOLVED] No Wireless on Broadcom BCM b/g LP-PHY

I have unpacked it, but how to I install it? Broadcom BCM Ubuntu Double click on the package to install or in a Terminal issue the following commands: This question is for testing whether you are a human visitor and to prevent automated spam submissions.


Is there a way to install the firmware without having an internet connection? Please post their response to your report. Install ilnux bfwcutter package.

Having a problem logging in? First unload all conflicting drivers this includes removing the driver you’re trying to install: It is maintained upstream here. Another strange thing that happened, as oinux by others, was that I found that even though I had the wifi turned on according the “rfkill list” command, I had to shut down the computer, remove the battery, try turning it on without the battery to discharge the capacitors, then reinsert the battery.

I changed linjx and can see the packages on my desktop lijux the ls command. If it doesn’t work, please file a bug report as per the support article. What is the output of the terminal command ‘lspci’? Installing Windows drivers with NdisWrapper.

If you haven’t it, you must install a synaptic package manager from Ubuntu software center search “bcm” inside synaptic package manager mark for installation “bfwcutter”, “firmware-binstaller” or “firmware-blpphy-installer” if you have a broadcom lpphy driver”firmware-b43legacy-installer” and apply, no restart needed.

If you wish to permanently use the open source drivers then remove the bcmwl-kernel-source package: I had much trouble getting the built in WiFi working, but it turned out to be something to fix, involving a couple switches and completely turning off the computer.

Install the rpm, then start at the step after wget in the instructions. Tara 6 1 2.
