need help with Debian and Wifi

Recommended Posts

yeah, seems like it's gonna be a lot of fun dealing with this. I keep discovering new things I have to do before installing the drivers.

I have to install the acer_acpi module, which for the moment is more generating errors than doing anything else.

after that, another acer specific thing.

then reinstall drivers, trying different methods.

To have more fun, it seems that my wifi card bcm4318 is a very popular nervebreaking little toy.


I found very good howto's and forums:





the latter has links to all you might need and that might work, only it's for ubuntu, but still it helps me understand.


Yves, I hope you can find some clues there.

Bonjour la France, it's been a long time.

Thank you all for your replies,


Greg, I tried the tutorial, didn't work. I actually started with this.


I decided to switch to gentoo, just to make things harder, lol.

I succeeded, I've been on it for a week, and am still trying to make gnome work, lol.

But I learned a lot.


I love linux!
