Ndis nolonger configures wlan0

Hi

Install 14 cinnamon to my old laptop, it requires ndidwrapper to get my bcmwl5 wirless card to work. No luck, but discovered that ndiswrapper.ko was not loading. I think this is the code to let one modprobe ndiswrapper.

One solution in ubuntu suggested that I did not need ndiswrapper. Instead in a terminal i typed:

sudo apt-get install bcm-sta-source bcm-sta-common


It worked for me. Now have a pretty, efficient and fully functional laptop. Thanks Mint folk!

Hope this helps somebody else
