Hello,

I'm getting my feet wet with UNR 9.10 on my "new" refurbished HP Mini and the install went fine off of a bootable USB flash drive that I created.

However, I am having trouble getting the network connections to work.

I tried following Cpbl posting on his blog on how to get the wireless working but it requires installing "bcmwl-kernel-source". Unfortunately it does not exist and I do not have a connection to downalod it from any of the software sources.

(Ref: http://cpbl.wordpress.com/2010/01/07...p-mini-1116nr/)

Based on Sabas310's posting on HPmini board, I ran "lspci -vv" and got the following info out:

02:00.0 Ethernet controller: Marvell Technology Group Ltd. 88E8040 PCI-E Fast Ethernet Controller

For what it's worth, the wireless device info:

I would really appreciate it if you can shed some light on what might be the root cause here.
