This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

  • You'll need to provide us with some more information. Generally, on linux, the steps to get a new driver working are: 1) determine what the hardware is 2) Figure out what the proper driver for that software is 3) Install the driver. So, can you tell us the chipset? The lspci command might help with that, as well as searching in dmesg for any wireless error messages. – javanix Apr 29 '14 at 14:43
  • Hey Javanix 36. I edited my post which has the hardware (I think) thanka – Jacks Apr 29 '14 at 15:25
  • @Ahmad, thanks for your question. It's much much easier to read if you format the output of commands into a block so the information doesn't flow together. You can do that by preceeding each line with four blanks, or put it between the html codes <pre> and </pre>. I hope someone can help you. – John S Gruber Apr 29 '14 at 16:38

So it looks like you have a Broadcom BCM43142 network adapter.

...
02:00.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM43142 802.11b/g/n (rev 01)
...

Some googling around reveals that this functionality may be provided by the bcmwl-kernel-source package.

Give this command a try:

sudo apt-get install bcmwl-kernel-source

That should pull in the proper dependencies that are required to build and install on Ubuntu 14.04.

  • Yep. It worked perfectly :) Thanks for the help! – Jacks Apr 30 '14 at 0:08
