No Wireless Connection --Unplugged Cable PLEASE HELP!

Postby studio77 on Mon Apr 08, 2013 5:21 pm

I'm trying to install Linux Mint 14, and I have no wireless connection. It's saying 'cable unplugged.' I'm hooked up to the ethernet cable right now. I'm tried to run sudo apt-get update and upgrade in the terminal, as well as sudo apt-get install firmware-b43-installer with no luck.

I ran ifconfig -a and this is what I'm getting:
eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:23:ae:3d:c4:de

I have no idea what I'm doing, so any help would be MUCH appreciated!

THANK YOU!!

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Your output indeed shows you don't have a wireless connection. Please open a terminal and running the following command; share the output here.
