Hi Rubynox,

You’ll need to install a package (firmware-b43legacy-installer). Follow these steps:

Start Root Terminal (Applications -> System Tools -> Root Terminal)

Update the repos using the command below:

apt-get update

Once the process is complete, install the driver package for your device:

apt-get install firmware-b43legacy-installer

This should start your wifi card. Reboot your computer and see if the wifi is working or not. Let me know how it goes.

Cheers!

I’ll need to see the exact model of the wifi card…

Paste the output of the following command in your output:

lspci

Okay, great! For others who may have a similar device, here’s the solution.

For BCM43142 device we’ll need the broadcom-sta driver package. Try the following steps.

Update the repos:

apt-get update

Install the driver:

apt-get install broadcom-sta-dkms

Remove conflicting drivers:

modprobe -r b44 b43 b43legacy ssb brcmsmac bcma

Finally, activate the new driver:

modprobe wl

That’s it.
