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

    Thanks! I ran that command and it returned me with an error saying something went wrong in installation. So I found both packages in the Synaptic Package Manager and updated them from there. I restarted my computer after this, and I still have no wifi. What should I try next?

    Update: I ran that command again and didn't receive the same error message. Instead, I was told both packages are already the updated version. I still have no wifi, however.

    Hi, run these commands now that you have installed the driver and firmware.
    Code:
    dmesg | grep wlan0
    Code:
    sudo iwlist scan
    Code:
    lsmod | grep b43
    Code:
    dmesg | grep b43
    and post the results here.
    Than you

    The only one of those commands that returned any output at all was the second. The output was:

    Code:
    lo        Interface doesn't support scanning.
    
    eth0      Interface doesn't support scanning.
    
    easytether0  Interface doesn't support scanning.
    The other commands just took me to a slightly different input interface (or whatever the term is for having more after my computer name when I input something into the terminal) or simply did nothing at all. Is that normal?

    Oh wow I'm sorry I don't know how that happened. Here's the real output:

    Code:

    Hi, no problem.
    Try this command please:
    Code:
    sudo modprobe b43
    You do have a wired connection right?

    Please unplug the wired connection before you run that command and give it a minute to see if it worked.

    There are no modules loading for your card, so they are either not installed or installed or not working for some reason.
    Thank you

    Wow, that worked immediately! Thank you so much! Is there anything I should do to make sure this doesn't happen again, or was it just some weird fluke? Thanks again, you've been an amazing help!
