Re: Getting wireless to work - Dell Vostro 1500

Hello
give this guide a try https://elrepo.org/tiki/wl-kmod that's what I do.
There should be a kernel module called brcmsmac already installed, you can give it a try with.
as root

Code: Select all

modprobe brcmsmac
That also works on my Dell but is much much slower than the hybrid.
