    Re: Broadcom

    We will be very happy to help you in simple, easy to understand terms. There are at least four methods to get Broadcom devices going and which method is best depends on the exact device. We can find that information quickly from the terminal. Open it with the keyboard shortcut Ctrl+Alt+t. Then type in:
    Code:
    lspci -nn -d 14e4:
    Press Enter. Post the result here and we'll proceed.
