    Code:
    long@long-Lenovo:~$ cat /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf | tail -4
    # continues to build and is installable for the few cases where its
    # really needed.
    blacklist amd76x_edac
    blacklist brcmsmac
    This is now correct, isn't it?

    I guess a memorial statue is all that is left

    But the idea of a ready-to-use script is good, something like the "autorun.sh" in some realtek drivers. I think I'll edit the 'workaround' to include such a script to do everything in one-go (something I refrained from earlier, but seems okay now seeing how many things may go wrong in manual entry of commands).

    VSF lives on!!

    Ah yes, making fun of the noob and his terminal skills.

    I ran "sudo modprobe wl" and I still show no sign of active wifi - wifi does not show at all in the network indicator. Not sure what happened, but I now think I have discovered problem #3, because I have never been here before.

    Nope! My 'lol' was directed at Hadaka's sense of humour (which again wasn't a humour about you, it's just about our own personal chit-chat in the background )

    Let us check the basics again. Please post outputs of -
    Code:
    lspci -nnk | grep -iA2 net
    rfkill list all
    dmesg | grep -ie wl -e net

    Yes, I tried to edit my post above to reflect two points:

    1.) I am in agreement with your greatness being recognized with the VSF memorial statue, or perhaps a public building in honor of VSF would be more appropriate.

    2.) The red text above (post #56) is an obvious and appropriate reference to my dominance of the copy and paste

    DISCLAIMER - ALL OF THE ABOVE WAS TYPED IN A SARCASTIC/JESTING TONE

    I will get to work on this some time this evening. My wife is not pleased with the inability to surf the internet unencumbered by cables and wires, so we must work quickly!

    Will having a wired connection affect the output?

    No, it won't. Especially if there is no hint of wifi at all !
