16.04 no wireless connection

Installed Ubuntu Mate 16.04 Mate LTS yesterday.
Wired connection works just fine but cannot connect wireless.

Hi.
Please post more info or try a search on Linux + name of your card + name of the driver.
Obtain these informations with the command: sudo lshw -C network in a terminal opened using CTRL + ALT + T

Edit: or even simpler, post here the “detailed informations” from Welcome -> Getting Started -> System Specifications

My PC is a Za Reason Alto X445

Hi @blute,

open a terminal with Ctrl + Alt + t and paste the following command:

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install broadcom-sta-dkms

and see if that fixes the problem for you!. :smiley:

Or, install the binary package from here:

https://pkgs.org/ubuntu-16.04/ubuntu-multiverse-i386/broadcom-sta-dkms_6.30.223.271-2_all.deb.html

@Studer41030,

according to this:

https://zareason.com/shop/Alto-X445.html

your laptop is supported out of the box?.

Is your Wifi switched off on the keyboard?. Is WiFi enabled in the network manager icon in the top panel?.

Have you done a full system update using a cable connection?:

Ubuntu Mate Update Guide

I have done a full update using a cable connection, and I attempted to activate my wifi on the keyboard, and I got nothing. I was able to enable networking in the network manager and was able to use the cable connection, but I was unable to activate wifi because the option for that was not there “Enable Wifi” was not present in the network manager.

Please paste the following command in a terminal (Ctrl + Alt + t) and paste the results here:

sudo lshw

Have you tried the “Additional Drivers Tool” in the Control Centre?. :smiley:

Your WiFi is installed and broadcasting from what I can see and is also supported by the kernel!, are you sure it isn’t switched off on the keyboard?, is there a WiFi indicator light showing anywhere on your keyboard?. :confused:

There is no light on my keyboard lit up at present but the data I gave u was collected when my wifi was working but I finally got Klink up and running and my wifi is now down again so let me attach my info again

It is still showing up as broadcasting?.

Try the following, change your software sources download location to a different server and then then update your software sources lists again, then run the following terminal command:

sudo dpkg --configure -a

then:

sudo apt-get install -f

RESTART IF ANYTHING UPDATES AT ALL!.
