Re: Acer Aspire R15 Mint 18 no wifi

Post by bin_bash »

I also use an acer aspire and could not establish a wifi connection.
See my thread here.
viewtopic.php?f=53&t=224299
From what I have read in the release notes, I still think the problem is the missing third party software.
Hopefully now that Mint 18 stable is here, someone will be able to address this issue.

These wifi cards work great in Ubuntu 16.04 and Linux Mint 18 with the correct firmware. The firmware you have is missing the board-2.bin file. Use the following commands to install the latest firmware

Code: Select all

wget http://mirrors.kernel.org/ubuntu/pool/main/l/linux-firmware/linux-firmware_1.158_all.deb
sudo dpkg -i linux-firmware_1.158_all.deb
reboot

I had a CPU failure with my laptop. Acer fixed it and sent it back but I had to reinstall Mint 18. I have the same problem as before. I tried the command above but it gives a 404 error cannot be found. Any advice?
Thank you

If you have an ethernet connection you can

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install linux-firmware
Reboot
Changes were made to the version available in the repositories
