Years ago when I was new to Linux, I threw up my hands at broadcom and just bought an inexpensive USB wifi adaptor. Solved my issues. YMMV.husfr28 wrote: ↑Wed Oct 25, 2017 8:52 pmHi everyone !
I just installed Solus OS Mate on my HP streambook 13 but i have a problem.
I can’t ser any wifi networks. I open the settings menu, clik on « hardware drivers ». It shows « Broadcom’s IEEE 802.11/a/b/g/n hybrid Linux driver ». I click on install. It shows « broadcom-sta-common 126.96.36.1991 ». I clik on install after my password. It asks me to restart to complete system configuration. But when I restart the situation is the same, i still cannot see any wifi network.
Can anyone help me ?
I precise that I have no ethernet port on this computer.
Check whether broadcom-sta-current is installedhusfr28 wrote: ↑Thu Oct 26, 2017 10:59 amThank you for your answer !
I will see, but i remember when i installed ubuntu 16.10, i had the same issue and in a forum helpers told me to type a command on terminal but i don’t remember what. Also i see that Solus works differently than ubuntu. So I don’t know what to do
Code: Select all
eopkg info linux-current | head -n2; uname -a
This seems to be a problem with the app Solus uses, networkmanager. I have experienced this very same issue on other distros. I believe this problem only occured for me on first usage. HTHMelencu wrote: ↑Sun Oct 29, 2017 3:53 pmHello,
I have a similar problem with the Wifi connection on solus budgie. For some reasons its not searching for wifi networks at start, I have to connect manually (connect to a hidden wifi network). The wifi network is not hidden, i have no problems connecting to it from other devices.
Any solutions to this problem?
Of course things can be improved, but there is an application that detect and install the proprietary drivers that is documented on the Help center.ChrisOfBristol wrote: ↑Mon Oct 30, 2017 8:23 pm
