[SOLVED] No Wifi on my Hp Laptop Broadcom BCM43142

Post by Pata66 »

Hi . After installing Arco linux with Lts core and support for Nvidia, I have no contact with Wifi. Run with cable now, but want to be able to connect with Wifi on my Laptop.
There must be no drivers, When I ran on the Live system it was possible to connect with Wifi.

See what is in here

/usr/lib/modprobe.d/broadcom-wl.conf

I have this in there

blacklist b43
blacklist b43legacy
blacklist ssb
blacklist bcm43xx
blacklist brcm80211
blacklist brcmfmac
blacklist brcmsmac
blacklist bcma


All those are blacklisted.

Maybe yours is in there?

Works after installing the proprietary driver module broadcom-wl or broadcom-wl-dkms, which supports Broadcom BCM43142. See the detailed Broadcom wireless page for further information.
