Linux Mint is not Debian, or even close to it. It's based on Ubuntu, which is based on Debian Unstable, but only in the very loosest sense. It's like being related as 4th cousins, legally not related at all.

Yes, you're trying to use a Broadcom wireless card, they're not good for GNU/Linux :(

If you have any further problems with your wireless, open a new thread for it -- we're a bit off-topic here.


Ok I just installed debian normally, and this stuff works.. more then perfect!

Thank you very much! So the wireless looks stable now.
The thing is, that I also don't have any problems with graphic until now! Looks really promising!!

Thank you very much guys!! And sorry again for my linuxless skills :)
