I want to use wi-fi connection on my old notebook on which the Linux Mint 15 is installed, but I can't because it doesn't see any available installed drivers on it.
I have searched many website and read different variations of setup, but no success.
I have installed offline the b43-fwcutter perfectly, which is needed for wi-fi driver configuration, but have problems with activating driver.
Some details about my settings on Linux Mint:
1). lo no wireless extensions eth0
2). no wireless extensions
sudo modprobe wl
FATAL: Module wl not found
sudo lspci -vnn -d 14e4:
shows me , that I have 4311 version of the device
shows be , that neither software nor hardware is blocked
if in the GUI mode (in my desktop environment) I click on the wireless icon, nothing appears
in the application manager I haven't installed the STA broadcom drivers
if to open Wireless Network drivers utillity in Mint , it doesn't show me any driver
I also was trying to onstall
wl_apsta.o with the next command
sudo b43-fwcutter -w /lib/firmware wl_apsta.o
all was extracting pretty fine
but when I try to
sudo modprobe b43
How to make work Wi-Fi with the Mint 15 perfectly in offline mode?
