Wifi HP Pavilion G6
« on: February 26, 2014, 03:43:18 PM »
Ok, so i got an HP Pavilion G6 series laptop.
I've built everything i needed from the ground up and does great...till i get to the wifi.
The F12 key is the wifi control for hardblock/softblock. i've checked the rfkill command its clear and good.
I dont know what to do. i want it so i push it and the wifi turns off..then i push it again and the wifi turns on. But after rfkill is clear i see nothing..no signals no scans no nothing.
After looking everything over i noticed ndiswrapper on the installation disk..is that it?? Cause after trying that still no.
I dont know if its me or if i need a homemade driver or if its an tcz fix.
Please help
#struggling with this for awhile

Since you have not shown the output of "lspci -nn"  nor told us what you have installed, it is difficult to give any advice.

Try  firmware-ralinkwifi.tcz, but it may just be not supported.
