wifi problems. after updating to the latest linux-kernel wifi doesn't work.


after i installed the newest linux-kernel my wifi doesn't work. when i write rfkill list all in the terminal it looks like this.

jakob@jakob-3000-N100 ~ $ rfkill list all
1: hci0: Bluetooth
Soft blocked: no
Hard blocked: no

and thats it. no wifi found.

i'm pretty new to linux, so help is appreciated :-)

im running on a lenovo 3000 n100 with a broadcom 4311 wireless if that helps.

Have yiu tried Additional Drivers?
Have you checked lsmod.
Have you tried to load the module?

additional drivers showed the broadcom wireless. i pressed the button and it installed (or whatever it did) and i rebooted.now it shows that no proprietary drivers are available.

what should i look for in lsmod?

what do you mean by load it? sorry, am not very good with this yet

You can see if the driver is loaded using lsmod. Load tjlhe driver with modprobe.

when using lsmod there is no broadcom driver loaded, and when i type: "sudo modprobe b43" it just freezes :-/

oh, some more system specs: linux mint 17 "qiana" 32-bit cinnamon version 2.2.16 with linux-kernel 3.13.0-35-generic.

well tried to uninstall every driver and reinstalled them, and that fixed the problem. so now my only problem is the software rendering mode -_- but that probably has something to do with drivers too?
