    help getting Internet to work on netbook


    Hi,
    I am completely new at this and don't know what I'm doing. I did get Mint 11 on my netbook with some help, but I don't have the proper drivers. (The HP site has drivers for Windows but obviously, I'm not running Windows now so they won't work, right?)

    Here's a bunch of code about what comes up from various commands I found in another thread:
    Code:
    <br /> <br /> <div class="bbcode_container"> <div class="bbcode_description">Code:</div> <pre class="bbcode_code"style="height:372px;">
    sMini ~ $ lspci ~knn
    Usage: lspci [<switches>]
    
    Basic display modes:
    -mm		Produce machine-readable output (single -m for an obsolete format)
    -t		Show bus tree
    
    Display options:
    -v		Be verbose (-vv for very verbose)
    -k		Show kernel drivers handling each device
    -x		Show hex-dump of the standard part of the config space
    -xxx		Show hex-dump of the whole config space (dangerous; root only)
    -xxxx		Show hex-dump of the 4096-byte extended config space (root only)
    -b		Bus-centric view (addresses and IRQ's as seen by the bus)
    -D		Always show domain numbers
    
    Resolving of device ID's to names:
    -n		Show numeric ID's
    -nn		Show both textual and numeric ID's (names & numbers)
    -q		Query the PCI ID database for unknown ID's via DNS
    -qq		As above, but re-query locally cached entries
    -Q		Query the PCI ID database for all ID's via DNS
    
    Selection of devices:
    -s [[[[<domain>]:]<bus>]:][<slot>][.[<func>]]	Show only devices in selected slots
    -d [<vendor>]:[<device>]			Show only devices with specified ID's
    
    Other options:
    -i <file>	Use specified ID database instead of /usr/share/misc/pci.ids.gz
    -p <file>	Look up kernel modules in a given file instead of default modules.pcimap
    -M		Enable `bus mapping' mode (dangerous; root only)
    
    PCI access options:
    -A <method>	Use the specified PCI access method (see `-A help' for a list)
    -O <par>=<val>	Set PCI access parameter (see `-O help' for a list)
    -G		Enable PCI access debugging
    -H <mode>	Use direct hardware access (<mode> = 1 or 2)
    -F <file>	Read PCI configuration dump from a given file

    Hi.

    I'll try to help.

    Can you tell me firstly what make/model your netbook is? From what I can see from the info you've posted you've been trying to list the hardware connected to your computer. lsusb = list usb devices connected, lspci = list pci devices etc etc etc.

    Are you using an internal or external wifi adapter (ie is is usb, external pci/pcmcia)?

    If you can post this info then I'll try and help further


    Regards

    kinsago

    I do not normally recommend changing distros as opposed to fixing problems. But, I would like to point out that PCLinuxOS boots up the broadcom wireless card with no piddling.. I no longer bother with distros that require considerable piddling on a wireless card. My HP mini-110 has a broadcom card.

    yes, i have an HP mini-110! my first attempt was ubuntu and it failed 3 times. when i finally got mint to work, i was pretty happy. until the internet refused to work... the piddling makes me nervous. i already tried to change some things in the internet-network area but i might have just made it worse. or at least, still not working.

    any advice would be welcome and appreciated. thank you!

    irlandes already gave you some good advice, especially if you don't like piddling: change distro to PCLinuxOS.

    Your Windows driver will work fine with Mint 11. Mint 11 comes with ndiswrapper built in. (google ndiswrapper and you'll find it lets you use Windows wireless drivers in Linux.) Click /Menu/Administration/Windows Wireless Drivers and the wizard will prompt you to insert a CD with the Windows driver or point to a folder that contains the driver.

    +1. This was going to be my answer too.

    Failing that, are there any restricted drivers available? Not sure where it is in Mint, under Ubuntu it's 'Additional Drivers'.

    This is how I get my Compaq to work

    ps: if you download the drivers as an .exe or zip file etc, you may need to extract them to a folder first.

    It's the same place in Mint. /Administration/Additional Drivers

    You should be able to get a native Linux driver for Broadcom from the Additional Drivers menu mentioned above. You need to be connected to the Internet with an Ethernet connection or with an external (usb) wifi device that is supported by Mint.

    I tried a driver from the HP site and and transferred it to a flash drive to get on my netbook, and when I tried to open it, this error came up:


    Archive: /media/10CC-097F/sp45524.exe
    [/media/10CC-097F/sp45524.exe]
    End-of-central-directory signature not found. Either this file is not
    a zipfile, or it constitutes one disk of a multi-part archive. In the
    latter case the central directory and zipfile comment will be found on
    the last disk(s) of this archive.
    note: /media/10CC-097F/sp45524.exe may be a plain executable, not an archive
    zipinfo: cannot find zipfile directory in one of /media/10CC-097F/sp45524.exe or
    /media/10CC-097F/sp45524.exe.zip, and cannot find /media/10CC-097F/sp45524.exe.ZIP, period.


    I connected an Ethernet from the netbook to my router and still no internet connection. I checked for additional drivers and none were found.
