I'm using Mint 18.1 with a broadcom 43142 wifi card.
When I go the terminal and type in
this is the response I get back

I'm not sure if that is suggesting only one channel to work with or what. Just trying to provide as much information as possible that I think may be asked for. I know in the past I thought I have seen a whole list of channels but when I tried switching to them I always came up the 'Operation not supported' error.
What else do you need to know. I know I probably won't be back online until sometime tomorrow. Not sure when though. Figured I would get this posted while it is on my mind.
