Need Driver for HP Pavilion dv5000


I just installed UBUNTU 16.04. There apparently are no drivers for my laptop HP Pavilion dv 5000 laptop.

I am not sure where to go from here to get my network working. Any information would be greatly appreciated.

Network controller Broadcom
BCM 4318 [Airforce 1 54G]
Chip ID BCM-4318
PCI ID 14e4:4318
Kernel driver in use: b43-pci bridge


Thank You

Is this wireless? Wired?

Please read the last two links in my signature, on how to ask a more complete question.

And while your there, if your using wireless, you may wish to have a look at this.

$ lspci -nnk
$ lsusb
$ ip link show

It would help to know what hardware specifically. Knowing the model only helps to a point, if there's other threads about it, or we happen to have that hardware. I have a couple HP laptops. My latest HP 15 - bw053od has the least supported networking hardware that I've come across in the past decade. But they can be made to work. The ethernet (r8169) works under arch (doesn't under debian), to a point though as I need to reload the module after about 20 days of uptime. The wireless seems to have a driver now, although only from github sources, and I haven't used it yet.

$ git clone https://github.com/smlinux/rtl8723de.git

Not that any of these are "your" hardware. And I have options to use a usb ethernet dongle and bridge over wifi on other devices. A relatively trivial thing for me to do, but not for the uninitiated. And kind of ruins the point of a laptop if none of the built in connectivity methods function. Unless one has such things because of the built in UPS (like me).

This post is about Broadcom wireless, but the first part of it will provide you with diagnostic tools that will help you determine what your wireless and ethernet chipsets are, which is essential to resolving this issue.

If you are asking about wireless, it would be wise to test your machine with a wired connection in the interests of thoroughness.

So what are the symptoms on the wireless? run dmesg and see if you see any network driver errors.
My guess is you have it soft blocked via the button on the keyboard.

Thanks to all for your help. I now have the wireless running. Needed to install the b43 driver for broadcam. Works great!
