So I did this and my wireless connection in still not showing up when I go to System --> Administration --> Network. It still only shows my wired connection and point to point connection. Is there something Im missing?
First are you sure you did everything, next what is the output for;
Code:lspci | grep Broadcom
How would it be possible to do this WITHOUT an Internet connection? Unfortunately for me, WiFi is the only possibility at the moment. (I have a working connection in Vista and can import files to my Linux partition)
All these posts seem to me like "Here's how you get your Internet working, but one caveat, you need a working Internet connection first!"
I do have wired conneciton too , and if anyone can help me , my output for posed question is -
03:00.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM94311MCG wlan mini-PCI (rev 02)
I'm trying to think of why this is not working for you.
Do you get any errors when you are doing any of the steps?
I'll try to help you, but from what i know, if you do everything in order, it will work...
when i did this, it made my menu when clicking on the two black monitors to
"- Wired Network
Connect to Other wireless Network...
Create New wireless Network...
Connect to 802.1X Protected Wired Network....
and tells me i can use wireless but the light is still orange, maybe i dont know how to search for networks?
the output is "03:00.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM94311MCG wlan mini-PCI (rev 02)" when i put inCode:lspci | grep Broadcom\ Corporation
I have redone it twice , but now it WORKS !!!Originally Posted by jlandaw
There was no difference between my last attempt and the two attempts before it , but whatever .
Thank you so much !!
jlandaw, you are the man! Thank you for compiling this information together in one easy to use place. I used this to get the wireless working on my sisters dv2000, specifically a dv2418nr, on hardy. I could not be more pleased.
