Installed 12.04 on dell inspiron 5420. wired connection is working however wifi and bluetooth connection does not work. In fact I can't see wlan0. Can I know the correct driver to install?
My laptop (Dell Inspiron 17R 5720) came with preinstalled Ubuntu 11.10. I removed it and installed 12.04. Now I can't find driver for wireless. Apparently, in 11.10 there was Broadcom-STA driver. But in 12.04 there is no additional drivers to install. I tried using:
Today I acquired a Dell XPS 1645. Ubuntu seems to run alright on it however The bluetooth is not detected and the WiFi doesn't work. The WiFi is especially weird because I actually have the restricted driver enabled for it. It also worked for a short while when I first booted into Ubuntu however now there isn't even an option to enable wireless.
I have two older Dell computers now working on Lubuntu. Had much trouble getting the Broadcom cards to work, but with Askubuntu help, they are now working. However, although wlan0 scans, sees my wifi, and asks me for a password, it does nothing when I enter that password.
I installed ubuntu (the latest ver.) on virtualbox but for some reason I dont have wifi driver wlan0 installed. I tried sudo iwconfig wlan0 but got the message error: no such device found...I can surf the web and when looking in the network connections I saw wired connection...but I am not connected by wire to network...and I can surf the web. Can anyone help ?
My wifi connection suddenly became flaky with ubuntu a couple of months ago, and I found you broadcom wireless table which instructed me to install linux-firmware-nonfree. I removed firmware-b43-installer and installed linux-firmware-nonfree and rebooted but there is no wireless connection. Any way to get it to work?
Fedora 20 lxde on Dell laptop. Initially used wired connection to get
proprietory drivers (Broadcom) for wifi. Thereafter usb drive & hdd
experience some 20 + second delays attempting wired connection before
successfully connecting wifi.
