Installed Linux Mint 16 Now very weak wireless signal - keeps disconnecting
Total newbie to linux and almost computer ignorant - please bear that in mind when answering. I recently installed Linux Mint 16 on my wifes computer after having so many viruses we could not remove on Windows 7. It is a 2013 HP Lapptop. The wireless signal is very weak and often disconnects. Not a good enough signal to stay online. I did some research and apparently this is a driver issue and specifics are required to solve it. I looked on the system info in Linux and here is what is says for the wireless driver:
This device is not working
Broadcom Corporation BM4313 802.11b/g/n Wireless LAN Controller
Broadcom 802.11 Linux STA wireless driver source
No Proprietary drivers are in use.
Please give me the kindegarten version of how to fix this. Wife is an internet addict and not happy with me right now!
