Glad to help any time. Rolf, I’ve downloaded the file and made it public by sharing via Copy.

Please provide the router manufacturer, model, and firmware version. Hi, Just like the previous poster, John B. In it, please ensure all of the below is provided if missing:

As a convenience, Ubuntu offers two versions of this driver: I certainly don’t know all the answers–I’m basically an advanced hobbyist–but if I can help someone farther down the road, I’m happy. Post as a guest Name.

Lubuntu submitted 3 years ago by MdLegal. Trying to install bcm on Lubuntu 13 will cause the sytem linyx crash. September 16th, Rebooted and nothing happened. The relevant driver has built-in logic to probe the actual chip, for example: Driver for this adapter can be installed by sudo apt-get purge bcmwl-kernel-source sudo apt-get install firmware-binstaller sudo modprobe -r brcmsmac bcma sudo modprobe b43 You have to be connected to internet by wire to install the driver.

Download the files from a computer with working network connection. I could install the b fwcutter, no problem. Wicd might be worth a try; I prefer it to gnome-network-manager myself.

Nice and easy Cheers. The full manufacturer and model of your computer as noted on the sticker of the computer itself.

I picked Linux Mint due to its multimedia friendliness and restricted firmware support.

Just tried this on a Dell Latitude D running Ubuntu Que Maravilla de tutorial, bien explicado, clarito. You solved my problem. However, now that I have Ubuntu When this is working the little light on the button is light.

The b43, b43legacy, brcmsmac and wl drivers do not support any USB devices. Keep up the great work!! Network cable is fine. Though I must say this is quite weird. As a stubborn old fart I choose 3418 go to Linux, looks good to me so far and it will serve my purposes. Debian 9 “stretch” deb http:
