Wireless Not Working on Linux Mint 12
I've just installed Linux Mint 12 alongside of Windows 7 but I can't use the wireless network. This is what I have.


Network controller [0280]: Broadcom Corporation BCM4313 802.11b/g/n Wireless LAN Controller [14e4:4727] (rev 01)
        Subsystem: Broadcom Corporation Device [14e4:0510]
        Kernel driver in use: bcma-pci-bridge
        Kernel modules: wl, bcma, brcmsmacff:

uname -r

dmesg | grep firmware
[  17.431638] elantech: assuming hardware version 2, firmware version 4.0.2

Can anybody help me?

try plugging your computer to a wired network then run all the updates availables hopefully there is a drive for your wireless card.
If not then hopefully somebody here can point out another solution.

Good luck to you!

Thanks TroN-0074, but I did that already and still doesn't work.

Well then the other idea I thought about was. try downloading and install ndiswrapper you can google it first and read abou.
I have never used LinuxMint so I dont know hopefully somebody else can help you here.

Good luck to you.
