Cannot get wifi to work


#1

I am trying to run Netrunner 19.08 on a Dell Vostro with a Broadcom wifi card in it.

At this time, the ethernet connection works great but I have no way to use wifi. The system does find the card when you use lspci in Konsole but will not scan for wifi or allow me to add wifi. Any suggestions?

This broadcom chip needs an extra firmware file to work successfully.
You can try installing with your working LAN internet connection this package

firmware-brcm80211

After a reboot it should work fine.
