Question Arch and WiFi on Acer Aspire 5745


I'm having the same issue on an Acer Aspire 5745.

I found 2 forum posts of m3z about this subject but none helped me yet.

m3z, did you manage to make it work?

thank you all.


Edit: I tried with ArchBang and it worked, when i listed the network modules there was atl1c and brcm80211,
then i modprobe atl1c on Arch and it dont worked. brcm80211 seems to me for wireless and isn't on Arch netinst cd.

Hello ViniciusRezende, welcome to LQ,

you should not hijack other people's threads. For your question you should open your own thread.

And please provide more information. What distribution are you using? and please open a terminal and post the output of
lspci -k | grep -iA5 ether
lsmod | sort
