When I scan for networks in the network manager I do not find any. I have a broadcom wireless card. My light on my laptop isn't blue and blue is the color when it is on (Yes I have the switch in the on position). Running sudo ifconfig wlan0 up I get "SIOCSIFFLAGS: No such file or directory" ifconfig -a returns (I removed some of the MAC) "
wlan0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:14:a5:ad:**:** BROADCAST MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1 RX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0 TX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0 collisions:0 txqueuelen:1000 RX bytes:0 (0.0 B) TX bytes:0 (0.0 B)
" So the driver I'm assuming is there is a driver and rfkill is the following
rfkill list 0: phy0: Wireless LAN Soft blocked: no Hard blocked: no 1: hp-wifi: Wireless LAN Soft blocked: no Hard blocked: no
In the Network Interfaces GUI it does not list the wlan0 though. Anyone have a clue as to what is going on. I've looked around and can't find much on this issue. I have other wireless devices finding and connecting to the router.
