Uninstalling STA may leave behind some traces such as the blacklist of b43 (and related drivers) in /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist-bcm43.conf - if b43 refuses to load, try removing that file.

That worked so the b43 driver must not be blacklisted. Curious though what is different about the
Code: Select all
 firmware-b43-lpphy-installer
driver from the standard b43 drivers i've always been offered before. along with the STA. in never would work in the past. does this installer do something differently?
just wondering?

The 4312 chip requires some custom firmware that other 43xx cards do not use. With the mentioned lpphy package you'll be sure that you also have the 4312 specific software installed. For me, installing this package (+ reboot) was all I needed to get Compaq Mini 110 wifi working (used it on various Mint versions, including 14).

ok ive got it working. This is what i decided to try. Since every known fix didn't work and even forums with hp minis were fixing there so much easier then what i was trying to do i decided to go with a new fresh install of linux mint 14 cinnamon. After that i did all the updates and did the software sources additional drivers tap and everything worked fine.

i appreciate all the help and im loving how fast it is. Thankyou!
