@coexistance - I actually figured he would just paste the output into a response or type out the bit in brackets.


Stupid broadcom chips! meh! LOL

Oh well...my bad, sorry.
Was just trying to help.

musky123

You have to do the command with the brackets "[" "]",
I tough you had understood what AsusDave pointed.

Anyway do:

- Hotkey combination CTRL+ALT+T

- spci - vnn | grep [14e4] > wireless.txt

Note: As you see is the brackets "[" "]" missing, just that.

- Open the file wireless.txt

- Now copy all the text and post it here.

Everyone makes mistakes, do not worry.

Hope you have better luck now!

chris@chris-Lenovo ~ $ lspci - vnn | grep 14e4
Usage: lspci [<switches>]

Basic display modes:
-mm Produce machine-readable output (single -m for an obsolete format)
-t Show bus tree

Display options:
-v Be verbose (-vv for very verbose)
-k Show kernel drivers handling each device
-x Show hex-dump of the standard part of the config space
-xxx Show hex-dump of the whole config space (dangerous; root only)
-xxxx Show hex-dump of the 4096-byte extended config space (root only)
-b Bus-centric view (addresses and IRQ's as seen by the bus)
-D Always show domain numbers

Resolving of device ID's to names:
-n Show numeric ID's
-nn Show both textual and numeric ID's (names & numbers)
-q Query the PCI ID database for unknown ID's via DNS
-qq As above, but re-query locally cached entries
-Q Query the PCI ID database for all ID's via DNS

Selection of devices:
-s [[[[<domain>]:]<bus>]:][<slot>][.[<func>]] Show only devices in selected slots
-d [<vendor>]:[<device>] Show only devices with specified ID's

Other options:
-i <file> Use specified ID database instead of /usr/share/misc/pci.ids.gz
-p <file> Look up kernel modules in a given file instead of default modules.pcimap
-M Enable `bus mapping' mode (dangerous; root only)

PCI access options:
-A <method> Use the specified PCI access method (see `-A help' for a list)
-O <par>=<val> Set PCI access parameter (see `-O help' for a list)

The command is as follows

lspci -vnn | grep 14e4

the spci was a typo I'm sure.

Awesome,
You should be able to use the following link to get you going. It will take you to the section that assumes you have a some Internet access (wired) but the no Internet access instructions are right below it.

https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Wi...ernet%20access

I actually refuse to use Linux Mint so I don't know for sure, but since it is an offshoot from Ubuntu, the instructions there should work fine.

Just do what that tutorial above says step-by-step.

For example, it says step 1 is to run the command "sudo apt-get install b43-fwcutter", which will install the "b43-fwcutter" package. Note that the command requires an internet connection to download the package.
