[Solved] WiFi BCM4306 Mint20

Post by yanush »

I can't start WiFi. there is only Wired option in my applet so I can use Ethernet cable only.
This is fresh installation of Mint20 Cinnamon. Everything work OK on Mint18.x

I defined "network connection" for Wifi but in "network settings" I have no possibility to add WiFi profile.

Device-2: Broadcom and subsidiaries BCM4306 802.11b/g Wireless LAN
vendor: Linksys WMP54GS v1.0 802.11g Wireless-G PCI with SpeedBooster
driver: b43-pci-bridge v: N/A port: c000 bus ID: 05:01.0 chip ID: 14e4:4320

nmcli general status
STATE CONNECTIVITY WIFI-HW WIFI WWAN-HW WWAN
connected full enabled enabled enabled enabled

but nmcli device wifi returns nothing.

Driver manager says that I don't need any additional drivers.

This is fresh installation of Mint20 Cinnamon.

Code: Select all

sudo apt update && sudo apt install firmware-b43-installer
Reboot.
It's pronounced kad-eye-cha, not kada-itcha.
