This question already has an answer here:
I have tried many solutions found in aksubuntu, but no luck in getting the wireless to work on this computer. The wired connection works. Below is the wireless information.
01:01.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4318 [AirForce One 54g] 802.11g Wireless LAN Controller (rev 02) Subsystem: Linksys WMP54GS v1.1 802.11g Wireless-G PCI Adapter with SpeedBooster Flags: bus master, fast devsel, latency 64, IRQ 22 Memory at feafe000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=8K] Kernel driver in use: wl Kernel modules: wl, ssb
All available updates were downloaded and installed 09/01/13. The b43 cutter and installer were tried and the placing of the '#' in front of the blacklisted bcm43xx has been tried (# bcm43xx). Hardinfo was installed also. I am new to Linux, but I am determined to learn all that I can to get this computer fully functional on this os.
