Okay, let's start from beginning .. can you open a terminal and post the output from the following commands:
Code: [Select]
lsusb
and
Code: [Select]
lspci -vnn | grep -i net
and
Code: [Select]
sudo lshw -C network
and
Code: [Select]
rfkill list
and
Code: [Select]
iwconfig

Make sure you are connected to the internet with a cable, now open a terminal and run:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install build-essential dkms broadcom-sta-dkms
When that's finished, REBOOT and check if wireless works.

If you'd rather not reboot, instead run:
Code: [Select]
sudo modprobe -r b44 b43 b43legacy ssb brcmsmac bcma
then
Code: [Select]
sudo modprobe wl
then check if wireless sprang to life

If not, can you post the output from:
Code: [Select]
lspci -vnn | grep -i net
but please don't just add it to your previous posting .. I only get notifications for NEW posts, not edits to existing ones

Hi ladyaliison, How's it going?  Welcome to the Peppermint Forum, it's nice to meet you  ;).  For future reference, could you please remember to encapsulate terminal outputs with the Insert, Code # function.  For extra long outputs, please use the Spoiler, Sp function.  If youíre a Chromium Browser and/or a Google Chrome user, please don't combine these functions.  For some reason they donít work well together with these browsers.  Only use one or the other  ;).  These forum functions preserve the original format of the output.  This makes it easier for future visitors to relate to their own issues.  These functions are found in the forum editor, above the,  :-[ Embarrassed and  the :'( Cry emoticon respectively.  Use the Preview button to see how it'll look in the forum.  This time, I've done it for you - many thanks  ;).

Can you also please start a new thread for each new question or query.  This is again to aid future users of the forum.  This stops threads becoming muddled with multiple solutions that are not necessarily related to each other.  You query has been split and is now a separate thread - many thanks  ;)
Backup! Backup! Backup! If you're missing any of these -  you ain't Backed Up!
For my system info please L/click HERE.

Either manually add the code tags at the beginning and end of anything you want in a code box .. code tags look like these

(code)text goes here(/code)

except with square brackets instead of curved ones

Which results in:
Code: [Select]
text goes here
once posted.



Or when highlight all the text you want in the codebox, then whilst it is highlighted, click the "Insert Code" button (#) above the editor.



Did you try my instructions in post #2 here:

Does that "yes" mean you tried my instructions ?

If so, what is the output from:
Code: [Select]
sudo lshw -C network
now ?

Can you also post the output from:
Code: [Select]
lsmod | grep wl
