I just installed Ubuntu 16.0.4 and no Wifi connections are showing up in my networks. So I tried:
sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install bcmwl-kernel-source
And this didn't change anything even though it installed successfully. Then I tried updating the system, which also didn't help.
I then tried the troubleshooting guide, and the first step tells me to write
in the terminal. This command isn't recognized.
So I try
lshw -C network
to see if my device is recognized at all. It's not -- only the ethernet I'm using. So then I try
sudo lsusb -v
And it shows that apparently my USB device is being detected:
Bus 001 Device 005: ID 13b1:003e Linksys AE6000 802.11a/b/g/n/ac Wireless Adapter [MediaTek MT7610U]
But, the docs don't tell me what to do beyond finding out what type of device I have. What steps can I take to activate this wireless/download the drivers I need? Thanks.
