Someone needs help on Mint

Post by cool_gamer8119 » Tue Mar 06, 2007 9:55 pm

Ok, i have converted someone over to mint and he loves it, but the intergrated wireless card in his HP Pavillion dv6000 laptop. the info he could gather was kinda vague but can someone please help.
Here is the info he gave me...
Device: Broadcom 802.11b/g WLAN
Driver: 4.102.15.56 built by WinDDK
Driver Date: 11/13/2006

I cannot say if he got this off mint or off of Windows Vista( :? :roll: :? )

The Broadcom Card is notoriously hard to get working in Linux. This link, finally helped me to get the card working. In fact, I'm using it right now.
