I just installed Kali Linux on Dell Inspiron 1545, and am unable to get wireless connection.
I attempted the following
root@kali:~# lspci -knn | grep Net -A2 0c:00.0 Network controller : Broadcom Corporation BCM4312 802.11b/g LP-PHY [14e4:4315] (rev 01) Subsystem: Dell Wireless 1397 WLAN Mini-Card [1028:000c] # apt-get install firmware-iwlwifi # modprobe -r iwlwifi; modprobe iwlwifi
I even tried commands I used when I installed Ubuntu on the same laptop
sudo apt-get install bcmwl-kernel-source sudo modprobe -r b43 bcma sudo modprobe wl
How to fix?
I also ran
sudo apt-get install kali-linux-wireless
but I still cannot detect and connect to my home wi-fi.
Tried first solution
I tried first solution, but when I go to Administration > System, I get package manager. I searched for everything
Broadcom downloaded, installed, rebooted, but still no wireless.
There has to be an easy solution ......
Am trying this, http://www.chokepoint.net/2014/04/installing-broadcom-bcm43142-drivers-on.html
I was getting errors with install. After I reboot, still no wireless detector.
I'm trying all your suggestions .... seems I will have to read the links you provided. Who knew getting wireless would be so difficult! I will extend bounty time if possible.
