WIRELESS - Blinking Light, Unable to Surf Wireless

Postby unclatino on Mon Mar 09, 2009 8:50 pm

Unsuccessfully trying to enable wireless connection. Wireless card blinks, but Wicd cannot find it. It uses the Broadcom card built-in, but also have a D-Link USB Wireless cards that Wicd cannot find either!

Have already done the following,
1. Installed bcm43xx-fwcutter through Synaptic
2. Check marked "Connect to Wireless Networks" on the User Settings profile.
3. Check marked "Wireless Connections" (now grey-out) under Network Settings. For some reason, can't Unblock the Network Settings now.

What am I doing wrong?

Thanks for any help in advance

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

You could run mintWifi to see if it's using the correct networking interface(eth wlan).
Or try Network from the system menu.
