My Dell Inspiron 1011 (32 bit)has been faultless for many years, but the wireless broadband has disappeared in Linux, but it's there in WinXP. I tried running Mint 14 live, but still no wireless. I click the network icon, but no broadband networks appear; in Windows there are loads. I see no way to enable/disable wireless. Ethernet works. I've tried many distros and Manjaro and Lubuntu LXLE12.04.3 (LXF177) connect with wireless so I'm happily using Lubuntu. I'm non-expert, and I'm curious as to how to get my wireless back in my favourite distro, Mint 14 or whatever. The hardware: Board: Dell Wireless 1397 WLAN Mini-Card Rev 5.00 Chipset: BCM4315/BCM22062000 MAC address: 0C 60 76 4E EC 58
