Hi,

Please first connect your wired network adapter to the wireless router using an ethernet cable (also known as a LAN cable).

In order to gather essential troubleshooting information about your wireless card, please follow this procedure:

Step 1:

If you are using the Gnome interface, open the Terminal console via "Applications->Accessories->Terminal"

If you are using the Unity interface, the easiest way to open the Terminal is to use the 'search' function on the dash. Or you can click on the 'More Apps' button, click on the 'See more results' by the installed section, and find it in that list of applications. A third way, available after you click on the 'More Apps' button, is to go to the search bar, and see that the far right end of it says 'All Applications'. You then click on that, and you'll see the full list. Then you can go to Accessories > Terminal after that.

The methods in Unity are:
Press Control-ALT-T key combination.
Dash > Search for Terminal
Dash > More Apps > 'See More Results' > Terminal
Dash > More Apps > Accessories > Terminal

Step 2: Please copy-paste the following command from https://help.ubuntu.com/community/WirelessTroubleshootingProcedure in Firefox into the Linux Terminal. Do NOT copy-paste from the Email message into the Terminal, as that will only copy PART of the command. The command STARTS with the word sudo and ENDS with the word lsmod. So please copy-paste the ENTIRE command below from Firefox into a Terminal, press <enter>, then enter password when sudo asks for password, then press enter again.

Tip: If you have a wheel mouse or 3 button mouse you do not need to type commands into the Terminal. Highlight the command written on the page. Move your cursor anywhere in the Terminal and press the wheel or middle button. Automatic Copy and paste! No spelling mistakes! No Typos! No other errors!

sudo apt-get update; sudo apt-get install hwinfo grep rfkill; sudo lshw -C network; rfkill list; sudo iwlist scan | egrep -i 'chan|ssid'; cat /etc/network/interfaces; cat /etc/lsb-release; lspci -nn; lsusb; sudo lshw -short; uname -a; dmesg | egrep '02:00|80211|acx|at76|ath|b43|bcm|brcm|CX|eth|ipw|ireless|irmware|isl|lbtf|orinoco|ndiswrapper|NPE|ound|p54|prism|rror|rtl|rt2|rt3|rt5|rt6|rt7|usb|witch|wl';sudo dmidecode|egrep 'anufact|roduct|erial|elease'; iwconfig; cat /etc/modprobe.d/* | egrep '80211|acx|at76|ath|b43|bcm|brcm|CX|eth|ipw|irmware|isl|lbtf|orinoco|ndiswrapper|NPE|p54|prism|rtl|rt2|rt3|rt6|rt7|wmi|witch|wl'; cat /var/lib/NetworkManager/NetworkManager.state; sudo hwinfo --netcard ; ps -aux|egrep 'wpa|icd|etwork'; netstat -rn ; cat /etc/resolv.conf; sudo lsmod

Step 3: Please post results (copy/paste terminal output) on this thread. The troubleshooters here need to see the full Terminal output from running the above command.

Dumb Question on all this why is my wireless black listed I dont know how to do that. And I'm lucky I know how to get you this info because im so knew to linux Im guessing on how to do most of this so saying im a noob is an understatement. And when you guys walk me throught the fix I may ask things you know well but Im not able to get right off so pleasse be patient with me and the questions I may ask.

JenL (tigresskiss1969) said : #6

I provided more info But posted it incorrectly.

Best Nik.Th. (nick-athens30) said : #7

Try below commands please ..

sudo apt-get purge bcmwl-kernel-source

echo "b43" | sudo tee -a /etc/modules

sudo apt-get install --reinstall linux-firmware-nonfree

Reboot your PC and see if problem solved.

Thanks

Hit Y(es) , we want to try to remove the driver and use the
pre-installed module.

Thanks

The following Terminal output shows that your wireless adapter does not want to use the wl wireless driver:

You should use the b43 driver instead of the wl driver....

The following Terminal output shows that you are trying to use the wrong driver (wl driver), which is BLACKLISTING (disabling) the correct driver (b43 driver).

# Warning: This file is autogenerated by bcmwl. All changes to this file will be lost.
blacklist b43
blacklist b43legacy

Please try the b43 driver instead of the wl driver. To do this, you need to UNINSTALL the wl driver by uninstalling the package bcmwl-kernel-source

Please copy-paste the following commands into the Terminal (using a working, WIRED Internet connection):

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get remove --purge bcmwl-kernel-source

sudo apt-get install b43-fwcutter firmware-b43-installer

Then please run the following command:

gksudo gedit /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf

Using the gedit editor, please REMOVE the following configuration lines in
the /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf file:

blacklist b43
blacklist b43legacy

SAVE the change to the /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf file after
removing the configuration lines.

Then REBOOT and retest wireless.
