I 've installed xubuntu 16.04 on a dell inspiron mini 10. It 's look working OK but I can't enable the wifi. What should I do about this?

  • type this command into the terminal lspci -nn -d 14e4: If it says Broadcom anywhere ( for example my output is: 0c:00.0 Ethernet controller [0200]: Broadcom Corporation NetXtreme BCM5761 Gigabit Ethernet PCIe [14e4:1681] (rev 10) ) then follow the answer here: askubuntu.com/questions/55868/… – pHeLiOn May 31 '16 at 2:38

Do you use an internet adapter or an ethernet cable? If you use an adapter, try unplugging it for a while. (5 minutes) Usually that fixes it for me, if the adapter does not work the network icon won't show up.

  • Please run the ubuntu forums wireless script (github.com/UbuntuForums/wireless-info) and paste the results into paste.ubuntu.com then edit your question to include a link to it – Steve Roome May 31 '16 at 13:34
