    there are three "stickies" at the top of this forum, one (or more) will
    guide you to a smile....but, if you can't figure out how, one of those
    will give the list of information you should include with your next
    post, so the wireless gurus don't have to ask..

    Install Broadcom Drivers from Packman

    But it might be worth posting the terminal output of this first:

    Code:
    /sbin/lspci -nnk
