Did it the process.
Still shows no wifi network, just "disconnected" at NM.
But the driver is in: (lspci -vnn)
06:00.0 Network controller : Broadcom Corporation BCM4312 802.11b/g
LP-PHY [14e4:4315] (rev 01)
Subsystem: Hewlett-Packard Company Device [103c:1508]
Physical Slot: 1
Flags: bus master, fast devsel, latency 0, IRQ 17
Memory at 92000000 (64-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=16K]
Capabilities: <access denied>
Kernel driver in use: wl
Kernel modules: wl, ssb
The problem is doesn't see the ESSID's, just "disconnected". Or simply just
doesnt support this driver?
