I just installed Linux Mint 16 on a quite old notebook with integrated 802.11 b/g wireless lan. I am never prompted that wlans are found nor could I configure a wifi network. There was a Windows XP installation on the notebook before I installed Mint and the 02.11 b/g worked fine then.
Here is some output:
0a:05.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4318 [AirForce One 54g] 802.11g Wireless LAN Controller (rev 02)
sudo iwlist 0a:05.0 scan
0a:05.0 Interface doesn't support scanning.
As I am all new to linux, I am hoping that someone here has any ideas as to how I will get that notebook connected to the Internet using wifi?
