    Re: Wifi not working on my HP Pavilion dv6000 laptop.

    You have typo's in your command.

    chili555 had written correctly.

    If like me you have thick and clumsy fingers it usually is safer and quicker to Copy and Paste the command into the terminal.


    Edit.
    @chili555 is there a typo in the command posted?

    I think it should be
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install linux-firmware-nonfree

    Oooops! Sorry; I made a mistake.
    Code:
    sudo apt-get  install  linux-firmware-nonfree
    Please excuse my mis-step.

    Yep. Apparently I have thick and clumsy fingers and thick and crusty glasses!

    Chili555 ... Had the same problem as Hesterions. No wireless on Ubuntu 13.04 dv6000 with Broadcom BCM4311. Light stayed amber no matter the position. Ran above script and this solved the problem. Thanks.
