Re: Mint 16, Broadcom, No Wireless (or wired) After Install!

I am in the same shoe here with Dell Inspiron 1521. I can't uninstall the Broadcom wireless driver either. I guess that only way to get out of this situation is to reinstall the OS.

Re: Wireless Networks Don't Show Up on My Dell Inspiron 1521

Does the wired connection work in the live dvd? I can't bring up Linux Miint from a DVD at this point when it is installed on my laptop. Otherwise, I likely just reinstall it. But you were previously able to boot up the live session because you managed to install it? And can we assume that original...

Re: Linux Mint won't shut down properly

What are possible situations I likely get? I see a Linux Mint logo after "sudo shutdown -h now" which is the same as I shutdown the box through its UI and it hangs.

Re: Wireless Networks Don't Show Up on My Dell Inspiron 1521

Thanks for your suggestions.

As I have said, the laptop is off-line right now. I am unable to install those items which request downloaded from the internet. As my first question, I need to get my wired network up first.
