WiFi Issue MacBook Core 2 Duo

Postby reagentz on Wed Oct 17, 2007 10:04 pm

Okay, call me lame, stupid, or whatever. I'm sick of corp software companies bleeding me for my hard earned cash. Sick of Microsoft and Macintosh charging 100+ bucks for their bugged OS (Macintosh is a whole lot better than Microsoft, but regardless).

I'm installing LinuxMint 3.1 (from the advice of a new online friend in Linux community), on a MacBook (white) 1.8ghz Core 2 Duo, 160gb HD, 2gb RAM. During initial boot I received a message "**warning: Ipv6 block or black listed** something to that effect. I do believe that is my built in WiFi card. I had an issue with Debian 2.6.18-5-amd64 not loading it, even after ndiswrapper and trying to get madwifi to make it work. Reason I switched to LinuxMint I was told it configures everything during install very well.

Is this a propritary hardware issue or something? I think I remember reading where someone used "fwcutter" with a bwc45xx (or something to that effect) to make it work.

Any input or advice on this would be awesome, thanks!

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

well, how are you getting online now?

anyways, disregard "ipv6" being blacklisted - a while back people were saying to disable it so that the internet would run faster - and now its disabled by mint.

tahdah.

yeah. just ignore it

well, cool I'll ignore it.

I'm dealing with a GRUB problem now, it's hanging at the Loading GRUB please wait... something 1.5 part of the boot.

I'm booting back up with the LinuxMint Live CD again, see if I can fix it... read something on the GRUB site it was a unknown issue and there's a "fix"
