Mint 14 Cinnamon

Postby LTISTG on Fri Jan 11, 2013 11:44 am

I have a Dell D810 laptop and I am trying to work out a few bugs. Mint 13 worked, but on Mint 14 I am having wireless adapter problems. I installed the B43 firmware and can see my wireless, but when I try to connect it fails without reason. I have checked everything twice, including re-installing the b43 drivers. Is this a known bug or does anyone have any ideas where to proceed.

I know that Broadcom can give a lot of headaches.

Can't this issue be solved by removing all broadcom drivers and installing these packages?
- firmware-b43-lpphy-installer
- b43-fwcutter
MSI GE70-2PE*Quad core Intel Core i7-4710HQ*Kingston 16 GB RAM*Intel 4th Gen. Integr. GPU/NVidia GeForce GTX860M*Qualcomm Atheros Killer E2200/Intel Wireless 3160*Sitecom X5-N600 Router (WLR-5100)

not all broadcom cards use b43 some use sta or WL driver series.
so no that's not a fix for all Broadcom cards. That's why I wanted to know which card the op is using.

We're both being lazy i guess :wink:

According to the info i found the Wifi adaptor chipset for the Dell Latitude D810 laptop should be:

Wireless - WLAN
Intel® Pro Wireless 2200 802.11b/g and Intel® Pro Wireless 2915 802.11a/b/g
Dell Wireless 1350 802.11b/g and Dell Wireless 1450 802.11a/b/g.


So my post regarding the 2 packages can be ignored for this matter.

And this teach us both, kc1di and me, that searching before posting is the best way to provide good support :wink:
