Hi.


Richt-klick on the network-manager-applet top right in your panel) and choose "Edit connection"

Choose Wireless

Type in the ESSID of your network you want to connect to and add the wireless key (password)

Choose in "Security" the appropriate encryption mode of your network (most: WPA & WPA2 Personal)


If it doesnt work, open a terminal (Applications-Accessories) and type in (or copy/paste) the following commands one by one:


lspci -nnk | grep -iA2 net
lsusb
lsmod
rfkill list
iwconfig
and post the outputs here in

With cable connection: Go to System->Settings->Hardware drivers and install the Broadcom-STA.

Without cable connection: Insert the installation CD/DVD, add it to your software sources and install the packages


dkms

patch

fakeroot

bcmwl-kernel-source

Close the package manager and type:


sudo depmod -a
After that you should be able to activate the driver, too.
