[EN] [solved] no wlan
« on: 2012/08/06, 17:42:00 »
Hi

I am using a samsung nc110.

Siduction does not think i have a wireless interface. There is no wlan when I ifconfig, only an eth0.

I have tried adding contrib non-free to my repos and installing the firmware-linux firmware-linux-free firmware-linux-nonfree, and doing fw-detect, etc.

Its odd because this is the only distro I have tried that doesnt see my wireless interface.

Any recommendations?

cheers


As a side note I have been using Mint Debian lately on my other box but it doesnt like my laptop's graphics. Siduction the only distro that works with my laptop's graphics 'out of the box'. No other distro seems to be able to use my gfx, or get the resolution correct, even with things like 'xorg edgers' and so on. This is why I really want to solve this little problem.

Along with showing lspci -nn it would be nice to see

Thanks all for the tips so far, it seems 'lspci -nn' does see the wireless (Network controller [0280]: Broadcom Corporation BCM43225 802.11b/g/n), however Network Manager or Ceni still dont see it.
