No wifi: Mint 14 [Mate], Dell Inspiron 2200, Broadcom 4318

Postby evvp13 on Thu Jan 03, 2013 11:53 pm

Hello!

I have just installed Mint 14 [Mate] on a Dell inspiron 2200 with a Broadcom 4318 card, and I cannot find *any* way to get the wireless working al all!

I have tried following some posts relating to similar situations, but none for the exact same specs as mine, and no luck.

Any help will be amazing!

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

If you have a wired connection do

Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install firmware-b43-installer

If not, let me know
