    Just had runned on the terminal:

    Code:
     lspci -nn | grep 0280
    and it retuned the following:

    02:03.0 network Controller [0280]: Broad Corporation BCM4318 [AirForce One 54g] 802.11g Wireless Lan Controller [14e4:4318] (rev 02)

    Grandma's wireless needs firmware and a helping hand from you. Here is a file you can download and put on a USB key. Drag and drop it from the USB key to her Desktop. Right-click it and select Extract Here. Now open a terminal and do:
    Code:
    sudo mkdir /lib/firmware/b43
    sudo cp Desktop/b43/* /lib/firmware/b43
    sudo modprobe -r b43
    sudo modprobe b43
    Is it working now? Hug Grandma from old Chili and tell her to enjoy her Facebook!

    Will you be kind enough to use thread tools at the top to Mark Solved?

    just rebooted and the wifi was not found so i quantify the findings hehe still after
    changing the folder and doing sudo modprobe b43 everything works until you restart or shut down the computer

    Please try this:
    Code:
    sudo su
    echo b43 >> /etc/modules
    exit
    Now does it work after a reboot?
