    Default not able to configure wifi conncetion using network manager

In windows when you switch on the system it shows list of available wifi networks ryt.. But I am not able to find anything in here... I am sure that thr must be something that I am missing, but can't figure out what.. I need little help please..

    Can you show us output of
    Code:
    su -c lspci
    and copy the output here, between CODE tags (the # in the layout ribbon ) ?

    BTW Networkmanager should show the networks, like on Windows.

    Default Re: not able to configure wifi conncetion using network manager

    What I thought, a Broadcom wireless network card / chip. Add the Packman repo and install the broadcom-wl packages. Then reboot. From there on you should be in business, i.e. see the networks. If not, you may need the bnoadcom firmware package and install the firmware IIRC.

    Check if the driver is loaded...
    Code:
    /sbin/lspci -nnk|grep -i net -A3
    Wireless device node present?
    Code:
    ip a
    Wireless device not hard/soft blocked?
    Code:
    /usr/sbin/rfkill list
    If necessary, you can share the output here by copy/pasting the output to a text file and transfer via memory stick to an internet-connected computer.
