I install bcmwl-kernel-source_6.20.155.1+bdcom-0ubuntu6_amd64.deb. And now wireless in network-manager shown, but there is no wifi netwoks. b43, b43legacy and other drivers I remove. Why is it don't work??? –  user144866 Apr 3 '13 at 21:20

1 Answer 1

Try installing the drivers for your wireless interface (BCM4313, as you mentioned).

Hook your computer up to a working ethernet connection. Then do the following:

  1. Open up System Settings.
  2. Click on Additional Drivers
  3. Install the listed proprietary driver for your wireless interface.

Hope that solved your problem!

There is not "Additional drivers" in system settings. I try: jockey-gtk "jockey-gtk is not Installed. You may try: sudo apt-get install jockey-gtk." When I try install it, I get: "jockey-gtk installed." I was download and install: bcmwl_kernel-source_6.20.155.1+bdcom-0ubuntu6_amd64.deb. –  user144866 Mar 28 '13 at 5:51
    
Weird. Are what Ubuntu are you running? 12.04? Additional Drivers should definitely be there. –  oaskamay Mar 28 '13 at 14:42
    
I running Mint Maya. When wifi wasn't start work, I was upgrade sysrem to linux mint Nadya. In Maya additional drivers works perfect, but in Nadya it's not running. –  user144866 Mar 28 '13 at 21:35
    
I know very little about Mint. I suspect the errors above are what is preventing a connection. You might try reinstalling the driver. With a temporary wired ethernet connection, do: sudo apt-get install --reinstall bcmwl-kernel-source. Reboot and see if there is any improvement. –  chili555 Mar 30 '13 at 21:37
    
I reinstall drivers already for two weaks. Mint - is a fork ubuntu. It's shown in "uname -a" –  user144866 Apr 3 '13 at 21:22
