No wifi discovered

Wed Sep 13, 2017 7:13 am
I recently installed KDE neon and found that my network manager is not able to detect my wireless networks.
I am a beginner so this maybe a noob question.

here are some of the outputs of the codes i ran :

Code: Select all
lspci -nn -d 14e4:
04:00.0 Network controller [0280]: Broadcom Corporation BCM4312 802.11b/g LP-PHY [14e4:4315] (rev 01)
07:00.0 Ethernet controller [0200]: Broadcom Corporation NetLink BCM5906M Fast Ethernet PCI Express [14e4:1713] (rev 02)


Code: Select all
iwconfig wlan0
wlan0     No such device



Thankyou in advance

Then name of your WiFi might not be "wlan0", hence the reason why you're getting "wlan0: no such device".

Run this:

Code: Select all
sudo lshw -C network | grep -i 'logical name'


On my system, this returns:

Code: Select all
logical name: enp2s0f1
logical name: wlp3s0


So in my case, the name of the wireless connection is "wlp3s0". In your case, if nothing is returned, it means your WiFi interface hasn't been brought up (which could be due to a driver problem, or a number of other things).

If you have an Ethernet connection, this worked for me:

Open a terminal

Code: Select all
sudo apt-get purge bcmwl-kernel-source


If you don't have anything to purge, that's ok.

Code: Select all
sudo apt update


then

Code: Select all
sudo update-pciids


If nothing is updated, no worries.

Code: Select all
sudo apt install firmware-b43-installer


after that's done:

Code: Select all
sudo reboot
