Mint MATE on HP 2000 Notebook wireless does not work

Postby auralynx on Mon Dec 02, 2013 9:54 pm

I'm new to Linux so I'm trying out Mint. Currently have Mint MATE 64 bit (installed w/o internet connection) installed on a HP 2000 Notebook with the following specs:

Product #: C2M21UA#ABA
Born date: Nov 23 2012
Bios version: F.62
Processor: AMD E-300 APU w/ Radeon HD Graphics
Processor speed: 1300 MHz
Memory: 4 GB

Problem: Now that it's installed the wireless doesn't automaticly search for profiles. Everything seems to indicate I have to manually enter things, which is more/less beyond my understanding, and I don't have my own personal wifi, I use a open public profile, so I don't know that info.

Before I installed Mint I had installed Ubuntu Studio and the wireless worked. Then I installed elementaryOS and encountered the same wireless problem I have with Mint installed.

I have tried what is asked here: viewtopic.php?f=53&t=1085
but it will not work.

Is my computer's wireless hardware not compatible with Mint?

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

How long does it usually take to get an answer on this forum?
Would be nice to start using the internet with Mint.
Does nobody have an idea of what the problem is?

Open a terminal and post back the output from this command so people can see what kind of wifi card you have:
Code: Select all
inxi -nxz

Impossible to offer solutions (that aren't wild guesses) without that info.
Add "Solved" to title of thread if solution is found. (Go to your first post and hit "Edit" button.) This helps make it easier for others to find solutions that work.

Try Linux Beginner Search Engine for Linux questions.
