No Internet?

Hello i just installed Zorin 16 from a usb stick but it is not showing any of the networks,so i cant use internet?
Thank you.

What is the terminal output for

sudo lshw -C network

I have created a dvd of Zorin and will try installing that on Friday.
Thank you.

Using the usb to install it asks which network and the pwd.
It looks like the pwd is accepted but obviously not.
Thank you.

You can complete your install disconnected from net. Once installed, connect using either Ethernet or using your phone USB tethered as hotspot.
Once connected, run:

sudo apt update

sudo apt install bcmwl-kernel-source

Reboot and test without ethernet or hotspot. If still not working, reconnect ethernet or hotspot and run:

sudo apt remove --purge bcmwl-kernel-source

sudo apt install --reinstall broadcom-sta-dkms

Reboot and test without ethernet or hotspot.

Thank you i will give it a go but really unsure about how to use my phone?

You can perform a search on the web on your phone Make and Model to find how to use it as a mobile hotspot. Usually, your OEM USB charging Cable can also act as Data Transfer - so you can use that to plug into the computer.

Thank you i have just installed Zorin using my dvd and all running well now,thank you for all your help.
