    Re: Wireless Not at all working

    Boy, oh boy! This is your lucky day. You have an unsupported device where the fix is tricky and experimental! Congratulations!

    Please see here: http://askubuntu.com/questions/17510...stro-3460-3560

    Notice your device is the same as described there:
    Broadcom Corporation Device [14e4:4365]
    Please hook up the ethernet cable temporarily and do:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install linux-headers-generic build-essential dkms
    Find out if you have a 32- or 64-bit install:
    Code:
    arch
    32-bit will return i686 and 64-bit will be x86_64. Download the appropriate file to your desktop. Back to the terminal and do:
    Code:
    cd Desktop
    sudo dpkg -i wireless*.deb
    Reboot with the ethernet detached and it should be working.

    Post back any errors or stumbling blocks.

    Re: Wireless Not at all working

    Hi Chili555

    Can you please tell what code I should type for 64-bit operating system ? I didnt follow the last code fragment My OS is 64-bit and the command arch returned x86_64.

    The
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install linux-headers-generic build-essential dkms
    , gave the following output .
    Code:
    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree       
    Reading state information... Done
    dkms is already the newest version.
    build-essential is already the newest version.
    linux-headers-generic is already the newest version.
    The following package was automatically installed and is no longer required:
      lib32gcc1
    Use 'apt-get autoremove' to remove them.

    Re: Wireless Not at all working

    Hi, use the 64 bit deb file in the link he posted at the top of his
    reply.

    http://askubuntu.com/questions/17510...stro-3460-3560

    also..run the autoremove you got in your last post.

    Hi, it works for me no problem, are you accessing the net
    with the ethernet cable via Ubuntu or windows?
