    Re: Broadcom BCM4318

    Sorry for late response I figured out a way to connect to the internet in 2 min. It still doesn't connect automatically I have to manually do it but I'm fine with that. It's better hen having no internet at all.

    thanks so very much for the help 😄

    Code:
    sudo modprobe -rv b43
    sudo modprobe -v b43
    Wifi active now? Do a reboot if necessary.
    This worked perfectly on my Gateway MX6441 with the same wifi card. I had to disconnect my usb wifi adapter for the last two code to work.

    I would like to post and say that this also worked for me!

    I am using an old Compaq Presario V5000 laptop running Linux Mint 16 XFCE edition. I hope this is able to help somebody else.
