HELP!!! I have no wireless!!!

Postby bereal777 on Tue Feb 12, 2013 11:33 pm

Hi everyone, I am a Linux Novice, I have an hp laptop pavilon dv6000 special edtion with 4 gigs of ram and a procesor amd x2 thurion 64 mobile technology TL-58.
It had windows 7 Ultimate 32 bits. Now I formatted and installed Linux Mint 14(Nadia) xfce 64 bits.

When I started linux mint with the cd, I then clicked on "install linux mint" then I got a little bit worried when i saw that I had no internet conection; that was a recomendation besides of having 6 gbs of available hard disk space and all that stuff, but i saw i had no internet conection, then I said to myself, "ok, i will continue anyway, i hoped that after instaliing the operating system it would had fixed.

I finally Formatted my laptop and installed linux mint14, but i see now that I´m still without wifi, then I conected my laptop with a cable and tried updating everything in the update manager, but after that still no solution found, i am still without wifi, when i activate it in my laptop is still with the red light not blue.

So Please Can someone help me fix this.
Thanks

You need to install the wireless card linux driver.

Open a terminal and type:

Code: Select all
inxi -N


Post here the output.

Assuming you have a wired connection paste this into a terminal

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


Might be worth a reboot after

Hi everyone,

I have a Laptop HP Pavilion G6-2240sq cu procesor Intel® CoreTM i7-3632QM 2.20GHz, Ivy Bridge, 6GB, 750GB, AMD Radeon HD 7670M 2GB and just like bereal i have windows 7 and i installed linux mint 14, 64 bit, and not wireless. I did however do all this about the terminal and installing, i installed in software center anything related to my wireless, in synaptic also and nothing works. I am a bit frustrated. I try to go to network settings and configure my wireless but it's not in bold so when i click the wireless nothing happens. If i have a connection by internet cable it works fine, but wireless is dead and gone....laptop is new and i have no more ideas.

Please give me some advice...

A quick google tells me there are issues with your device
EG:
http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2104129

I'd probably look at installing the necessary build packages and getting the firmware form Ralink http://www.mediatek.com/_en/07_download ... php?sn=501
