I have a dual boot of Windows 8 / Ubuntu 12.10 on an ASUS G75VX with Broadcom 802.11ac Network adapter device 43b1. It seems that there exists no drivers for this adapter. I have done all of the instructions in the following post:
sudo iwconfig eth0 no wireless extensions. lo no wireless extensions. lspci -nn | grep 0280 03:00.0 Network controller : Broadcom Corporation Device [14e4:43b1] (rev 03)
After doing the instructions of the link above, I realized I didn't have the option to install
bcmwl-sta-source from synaptic. Furthermore, from the list of devices that the
bcmwl-kernel-source supports, it doesn't include this specific model. Is it not supported yet?
Please let me know if anyone has gotten around to this issue. It will bug me alot if I just bought a new laptop and can't use the super fast wireless connection it provides :(
P.S in Windows 8 it works fine.
