Broadcom Wireless

Posted 08-04-2013 at 02:45 PM by rokytnji

First, this really isn't an Ubuntu or a Debian or a Mint issue. The problem likely lies with Broadcom and their lack of availability of firmware information for their wireless hardware. Broadcom does make a "generic" wireless driver for Linux, but it allegedly doesn't work with everything.

DHCP only for KVM host

Posted 08-01-2013 at 05:11 AM by zhjim
