Re: No wired or wireless internet!

I had the same problem with my broadcom card on an inspiron 1545. I ended up just ordering the intel card, which is the other standard card for that computer, and it was super easy to switch them (I'm not good at computers at all, and it was incredibly simple). It was under $20 on ebay. :) Here's my...

Re: Linux Mint 14 Internet Issues

I recently had a similar issue with Mint 14 and my Thinkpad X200. The internet would disconnect and reconnect every few minutes, and it was extremely frustrating... I've more or less resolved to go back to windows on that machine because of it, unfortunately. :( The same OS (Mint 14 XFCE) works perf...

Thinkpad X200, Mint 14 XFCE, Wireless not stable :(

I've just installed Mint 14 XFCE alongside Windows 7 on my X200. It detects my network and connects fine, but it drops and reconnects every few minutes. I don't know what to do. I tried the offered solution on thinkwiki, with no luck... Help? Here's my mintwifi: ------------------------- * I. scanni...

Re: Mint 16, Broadcom, No Wireless After Install! [SOLVED]

I just ended up replacing the broadcom card with an intel card. Easy switch, and everything works now. :)

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

I just went ahead and ordered the intel wireless card (like $17 on ebay). Super easy to switch out, and my machine picked up the internet right away when I booted up again. Much better option than continuing my battle against the broadcom card. Yay! :mrgreen:

Mint 16, Broadcom, No Wireless After Install! [SOLVED]

Okay, so I'm a total noob, but bear with me. I have a Dell Inspiron 1545 with a broadcom card (if I'm reading it right, it's maybe the Wireless 1397 WLAN Mini-Card?). Prior to the install of Petra, on the "trial" screen, I was able to go into the driver manager and turn on the Broadcom 802.11 Linux ...
