I have just installed Debian in my HP Pavilion dv6, but audio and wireless are not working, could you help me to install them?

Thanks in advance for your help.

Hi and welcome to LQ.

Can you run alsamixer and make sure that the channels are not muted.

Can you post the output of:

/sbin/iwconfig

If your wifi adapter is a usb one, then lsusb

Looks like it's not supported by default. Here are the instructions for installing the driver:

May I assume that this is Debian 6/Squeeze? I would recommend to rather install Debian 7/Wheezy on this newer machine, chances are high that your sound will work out of the box and you will get better hardware support for the other components.

Thanks for your support, even I installed Debian 7 I got problems (Audio works but not video, Wireless still without works) so I decided to try Mint Debian, looks that is going to work.

Thank you
