Zorin and Mint wireless driver


Do you think this would also work for Zorin OS?

Linux-Wireless Networking

Every time I open terminal and enter a code for a wireless installer (sudo apt-get install firmware-b43-installer) this is what I get below. Manually run what does this mean?

: dpkg was interrupted, you must manually run 'sudo dpkg --configure -a' to correct the problem.

Linux-Wireless Networking

I addition to this error code----dpkg was interrupted, you must manually run 'sudo dpkg --configure -a' to correct the problem. I also notice which I happen to view a video from youtube on the subjet (terminal) that my startups have just three applications in and only two of them are functioning. I tried to run sudo command but nothing. Maybe this the issues with the wireless network nothing is loading at startup.

I would like thank everyones feedback and help regarding my many issues with Linux Mint 17. However, I've decided to do a complete reinstall on both computers using again the Mint Mat 17 and Zorin 9 OS's. Well, once I did this I immediately search for the drivers which I could not find so I followed the instruction of this website for the drivers and that fixed the problem. Got my wireless working every hting is fine so far.

Thanks all,
David

Thumbs up Wireless with Linux Ver. 14.04 and Netgear Wireless Adapter.

I was having problems with trying to use a really small Cat 5 type adapter. I called Netgear after trying eveything I could think of for
Months and never could get it to work. Then they said that those Cat 5 Wireless Adapters are not built for Linux so I went down to my local
Walmart and got a range extender installed it via instructions and Wolaw it was immedite the connection worked and have been wireless for a
year or so with my Linux Ubuntu ver 14.04. It however does not run at the speed coming out of the Netgear Router. I am still very happy to
see it work for me. I am hoping that the password will keep local people from using it. I am using Skype too on the wireless range extender
works just fine.

In newer versions of Ubuntu (14.04 LTS was the one I checked), "Proprietary Drivers" is now listed as "Additional Hardware" and can be found as a tab under Settings-->Software and Updates.?

After a few days of searching, I'm at the end of my rope. Here's what's going on:

I've got a BCM43227 chipset and according to wiki.debian.org/wl the proper proprietary Broadcom driver is wl. I installed wl and lspci shows it in use. wlan0 shows up in ifconfig. eth0 is just fine and is allowing me internet access. I'm using wicd as my network manager and it scans but doesn't find any wireless networks -- same goes for iwlist. My network's SSID is not hidden and is running.

What am I not seeing? Please and thank you, any help is much appreciated.

lspci -vnn -d 14e4:
Code:

I'm not sure what to make of this but thought it might be interesting to include. Might be nothing:

I think you can use the command wlan0 up on terminal to try see if wlan0 channel is enabled and then test internet.
If not work your problem is on point access you dont have any point access enabled maybe is your network manager try to see info about this please.

Around internet you have some guides try to see info about like -> https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php..._configuration

wlan0 was already up on both ifconfig (as seen above) and ip link but I went ahead and ran the commands to turn them up anyway. No change. I also double-checked that rfkill was not soft/hard blocking wifi and tried toggling wifi on/off on the laptop. In the wicd GUI preferences, the wireless device is set to wlan0. It still seems to scan but finds no wireless networks.

Any ideas or rays of hope out there? I don't want to revert to Windows 7 on this laptop... my boot-time is so much better right now. There's tons of forums with almost the exact same problem but grr nothing seems to work.
