Can't make wifi work on Zorin dual boot on a Macbook Pro (2012)

I am a Linux newbie. I installed Zorin os 16 as a dual boot on an old (2012) MacBook Pro. I don't know how to set up WiFi. I don't see that option on the panel that displays when I click the rectangular-ish icon on the lower right system tray.

Can you please open terminal (ctrl+alt+t) and run

sudo lshw -C network

Let's see if we can identify what driver you need.

This problem has been resolved. Trouble is, I don't remember exactly what I did to fix it. I ran some sudo apt-get command, but I don't remember now.

In terminal, type

history

and it will show a list of your previously run commands. Maybe we can figure it out.

I think it might have been this command:
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install bcmwl-kernel-source

That would have been it. :wink: Good detective work.
