Need urgent help with installing wireless driver

Postby puggy1221 » Sat Nov 17, 2012 9:55 am

Hi all,

Just installed Linux mint on my spare laptop to see what all the fuss is about, not having a great time why make it so difficult to install drivers :?

Anyway, if someone could help me I will be eternally gratefull as I'm not having the best time getting my wireless driver to install.

See below for details

lspci -nnk | grep -iA2 net
09:00.0 Ethernet controller [0200]: Broadcom Corporation NetXtreme BCM5752 Gigabit Ethernet PCI Express [14e4:1600] (rev 02)
Subsystem: Dell Latitude D620 [1028:01c2]
Kernel driver in use: tg3
--
0c:00.0 Network controller [0280]: Broadcom Corporation BCM4311 802.11b/g WLAN [14e4:4311] (rev 01)
Subsystem: Dell Wireless 1390 WLAN Mini-Card [1028:0007]
Kernel driver in use: b43-pci-bridge


Can someone link me to the correct file to download as I have tried around 8 different windows and linux drivers and I am struggling and may just re-install XP.

Thanks in advance.

This may help, and was reported in the comments to work with your specific model WLAN card also. https://nfolamp.wordpress.com/2011/10/1 ... 1-working/
