[Solved] BCM43142 and kernel 4.15 series

Post by jvslice » Mon Jul 02, 2018 8:03 pm

Presently I am running Mint 18.3 with kernel 4.13.0-14. The wireless card was initially detected as a Broadcom BCM43142 and the bcmwl-kernel-source is selected and not having any problems. I have tried to update to a 4.15 kernel but after rebooting I am unable to run on the wireless card.

I know that I could stay with a 4.13 kernel but plan to upgrade to Mint 19 in the future which is using the 4.15 kernel.

I tried your suggestion but the 4.15 kernel does not see the wireless card. Also do not know if this is any help:

Code: Select all

I have followed the instructions that others had with the kernel 4.15.0 problems associated with Broadcom wireless.
download

Code: Select all

http:/mirrors.kernel.org/ubuntu/pool/r..._amd.deb
Ran the deb file and rebooted. and everything is working with 4.15.0 kernel.

thanks to all

I'm glad you got it sorted. Are you able to post the full link to the download, please?

Nope. It's not for me, it's for others who might have the same problem.
