As this driver is closed source, fixes in the driver itself may only be provided by Broadcom. Because it has attracted low-quality or spam answers that had to be removed, posting an answer now requires 10 reputation on this site the association bonus does not count. After a reboot the system may auto-load a different driver to the one you wanted to use. Once you have bfwcutter compiled and installed you can check SlackBuilds. OK, the next problem was do get Wi-Fi back.

The first problem was no Wi-Fi. You are currently viewing LQ as a guest. Join Date Apr Beans 2, I had Ethernet back.
The first thing to do was to do an update of Mint and after several minutes this all worked nicely. I have a Dell Inspiron with a BCM wireless card, and i’ve installed bfwcutter and firmware, but forget this, please guide me to the right way to install it Slackware In doubt, reboot modprobe b43 or modprobe -r b43 ; mobprobe b43 And you’re done.
Thanks, everyone, for your help. Last edited by rfernandez; at The fix worked, and I was able to “connect” to my wireless network, however even after “connecting to it” entering wireless password and keyring password I was still unable to access the internet.
