You need to install the driver and firmware for your Broadcom BCM4312 card. Consult your distro-specific documentation, or if your distro does not provide the Broadcom driver, see here: http://www.broadcom.com/support/802.11/linux_sta.php

(edit) See also the Zorin OS FAQ's. :)

My wireless networking isn't working. How do I get it to work?

If your wireless networking is not working automatically please check the "Additional Drivers" program in Zorin OS to see if there are any third-party drivers available for your wireless card. You will need to use Ethernet Internet access for this. Another solution is the Windows Wireless Drivers program. You will need to get the Windows version of the drivers for your wireless card. This program installs these drivers to your Zorin OS system.

pychosis 08-17-2013 04:46 PM

tried to install the driver but it errors saying
john@john-Inspiron-1545:~$ sudo tar xvf ~/downloads/hybrid-portsrc_x86_64-v5_100_82_112.tar.gz
tar: /home/john/downloads/hybrid-portsrc_x86_64-v5_100_82_112.tar.gz: Cannot open: No such file or directory
tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now
john@john-Inspiron-1545:~$

so then tried the windows driver but that errors saying not an inf. file

snowpine 08-17-2013 04:56 PM

Did you try the "Additional Drivers" program as recommended in the Zorin FAQ?

The error message indicates you are pointing to the wrong file/path name. Try using TAB autocomplete and remember that Linux is case sensitive, so for example maybe the folder is /Downloads/ and not /downloads/ ??

Firerat 08-17-2013 04:59 PM

usually. a capital d


~/Downloads


BUT

use the "Additional Drivers" as per snowpipe's post

did you look in system settings?

pychosis 08-18-2013 12:11 PM

yes, no icon for additional drivers

Firerat 08-18-2013 03:12 PM

hmm, maybe ZorinOS 7 is broken,,

I'll have to download and see

ah ok

Since Zorin OS is based on Ubuntu this should work:
Code:

sudo apt-get install firmware-b43-lpphy-installer
This should install a package that automatically will install the needed firmware. After that (not sure, maybe a reboot is needed) your WLAN should work.

yes that worked


thanks to all for the help

pychosis 08-18-2013 05:07 PM

so wifi works but getting loads of errors popping up

"sorry zorin 7 has experienced an internal error" that came on screen 4 or 5 times
then in task bar get a red circle saying

"error occurred run package manager or apt get in terminal. the error message was :error opening the cache (E:read error - read
(5:input/output error), E:The package list or status file could not be parsed or opened)
this usually means that your installed packages have unmet dependences."
