I am running LMDE 201101 on my Acer laptop and I downloaded, compiled and installed the Broadcom wireless driver from their site (Update Pack 5 not installed yet). My wifi works perfectly once the driver is loaded. "
I followed the tutorial from the Linuxmint Community forums to make the driver load on boot - the same very precise instructions that got me to compile and install the driver (http://community.linuxmint.com/tutorial/view/218):
sudo echo wl >> /etc/modules
and if that doesn't work alone, create file:
and add line:
install wl /bin/true
I did all of the above and confirmed that ""wl" is present in "modules" and that "ïnstall wl /bin/true" is present in "00local" but still, the driver does not load on boot. I have to re-install it every time I restart my laptop.
I would appreciate any input to fix this.
