I have a Lenovo ThinkPad Edge E520 (1143CTO) and I'm having problems getting my wireless NIC to work, as far as I can tell the drivers and firmware are all installed and the device is working.
I have searched around and have done all the fixes I can find online, this is my first 'real' experience with Linux, so patience is appreciated, as is any help I can get. I also had this problem with Linux Mint 11.
It appears that the model of my card is BCM43224, but it doesn't show up anywhere in the with any commands?
sudo lspci*-network DISABLED

sudo rfkill listsudo apt-get install b43-fwcutter firmware-b43-installer
Yet, sudo lshw still shows it as disabled!0: brcmwl-0: Wireless LAN

Hard blocked: no
Nothing I can find just seems to work. Any help at all is appreciated and I will try any suggestions as-long as you can provide me with the command
I have tried EVERY fix I can find!
P.S. This is the fourth forum I am posting it on as I am in desperate need of help.
