Well. Without a cat /etc/os-release readout. My best guess is he might be able
to use the wheezy install method. But I would not bet the ranch on that.
These spinoff distros are Ubuntu based usually. Which is a totally different animal than Debian.
Since some spinoffs may be based on Debian unstable. Not enough info from the OP yet for me
to say anything yet exactly. I have posted my commands for the OP to copy and paste into terminal to supply the info needed to show what Debian and/or Ubuntu his install is based on.
What really kinda irks me is that for a easy Windows Like transition distro spinoff. (Zevon,Zorin,?)
This poster has the same problems as
which no one paid attention to in my post earlier. No one running Zorin is replying in this thread also, which I find kind of strange. You see. I kinda figure that the OP is running Ubuntu with makeup/lipstick/eyeshadow
. Not Debian with the same. So I hesitate with recommending a Debian fix.
I use Debian/AntiX and don't use Ubuntu fixes in it or install Ubuntu ppa's.But I can put Ubuntu ppa's in Mint. I do use Debian to gather info on Ubuntu when needed
The Ubuntu fix may not be a Debian one though. I need the Ubuntu release number to drill down
to the fix.
As you can see. This chip is buggy as all get out in Ubuntu

Status changed to 'Confirmed' because the bug affects multiple users.
Will this bug ever be fixed? I can find references to it since 2011... Please, someone let me know if I can do anything to help!
How this ended right before jan 2014
So a 3.11 or 3.12 kernel install would probably fix this with no driver/firmware fixing
Ubuntu kernels, images and headers can be had at
I do kernel changes sometimes like changing socks to fix wireless problems like these.
dpkg -i is my friend in terminal. I always keep a backup working kernel though in case
the new kernel install won't boot or I find hardware issues with the new kernel.
But. Until I know for sure this thread is Ubuntu or Debian. I cannot say anything for sure.
Good Luck and Happy Trails cuz it's Friday night, Rok
