Linux mint won?t detect network
  

My experience with Linux Mint so far has been a pleasure. I love the interface, I love how fast you run, and I love that it's free. But for the love of God, I think I'll go sweeping the streets if I cannot get my network card to work. My card is a Linksys WMP300N. The BCM4321 chip ID and PCI ID is 14e4: 4329.

Wireless networks are not displayed in the tray icon. I tried to enter my SSID, the encryption and WPA key manually, but that did not work. I also tried to connect to a hidden network credentials and put my router on it, still not working.

I tried installing the Broadcom STA driver from side to side the Additional Drivers interface Mint, and when that did not work, I attempt to assemble myself from Broadcom's website following the instructions step by step. When that did not work, I tried to download the Windows driver for the wireless card here and loaded with Ndiswrapper, but that did not work.

I am also facing precisely similar trouble. I downloaded MadWifi and not compile appropriately.

Re: Linux mint won?t detect network

I did,even though I can say it does not affect anything. I've been rebooting after each change, too (probably about 10 times today).

I am just begining with linux so I hope I'm missing something. From what I've been reading, however, other people have had trouble about wireless network card, nevertheless a few have been able to make it operational

This is my first time using Linux, so I hope I'm missing something. From what I've been reading, however, other people have had problems with my wireless network card, but a few have been able to make it work.
I was looking at dissimilar Broadcom Offers Package Manager. They states in their descriptions also necessitate to set up the wireless-tools modules for Broadcom to work appropriately.

Re: Linux mint won?t detect network

Let?s get rid of that SSB driver component that might be causing a conflict (and any others who might be lurk roughly). Open the terminal and run the subsequent command.

Code:
sudo modprobe -r b44 b43 b43legacy ssb brcmsmac
Its mandate will be to check / verify that wireless is enabled and activated:
sudo iwconfig

Re: Linux mint won?t detect network

Forgotten, that the correct module Linux driver (wl) is already loaded into the kernel, be positive to remove the Windows driver that you installed in Ndiswrapper
