Just installed ubuntu 14.04 on my Compaq Presario V2069CL Notebook PC, The wireless does not work. What is the command to install the wireless driver? The Broadcom model is BCM4318 (using lspci -vvnn | grep 14e4).


You need to install firmware for b43 driver.

Connect to internet by wire and run:

sudo apt-get install firmware-b43-installer
  • If you can't connect to internet by wire, I will give a guide how to install the firmware offline. – Pilot6 Oct 13 '15 at 9:38
