  • Hi!

    The first thing you should do is figure out what wireless network card you have. One way (I'm sure there are several ways) to do this is to open up a terminal and type lspci. Some of the lines might contain Network Controller. What network controllers do you have? If it's a Broadcom (BCM43??) card, this guide might help you:
