Before posting, I did research and try several different options to get it to work. It still doesn't work, so I'm hoping someone has another solution to try.
This is a 6-year-old Toshiba Satellite C55-C5241. Everything seems to work but Wifi after installing Core 16. Ethernet works. The wireless card is Broadcom BCM43142 802.2 11b/g/n.
Once Zorin was installed, the Additional Drivers window showed it was using Broadcom 802.11 Linux STA driver that came with bcmwl-kernel-source.
This wasn't working. The wifi window says there is no adapter.
What I've tried
- Update Zorin. There was an update available, I updated. Did not help.
- Update and upgrade packages (apt-get update and upgrade). Did not help.
- I tried uninstalling bcmwl-kernel-source and installing broadcom-sta-source, broadcom-sta-dkms and broadcom-sta-common. Did not help. (source)
- I tried uninstalling bcmwl-kernel-source and installing firmware-b43-installer. Did not help. (source)
When I tried step 3 and 4, the Additional Driver window said the device wasn't working. It only said it was working with bcmwl-kernel-source driver, but Zorin did not detect the adapter. So even though it said it was working, the Wifi window said there was no adapter. Reboot included.
Note, I did reboot after each attempt to fix this problem.
I do have secure boot enabled. I'm not sure if disabling it would help, yet.
Anyone got any other tips or solutions?
