Wifi issues on a Macbook Pro 11.1

Postby princebee » 2017-07-12 23:21

I'm currently having issues with the broadcom-sta-dkms drivers on my Macbook. I used Keryx to download all the packages and their dependencies on another computer, and installed them using "dpkg -i *.deb" while in the correct directory. I then followed the instructions here to try and connect to my home wifi, but the iwconfig command returned with "no wireless connections". I'm not really sure where to move forward from here, because the solutions I found on Google were all for slightly different issues.

While installing these packages, you need to watch carefully if the modules are built correctly. If not sure, purge these packages and install them again, watch carefully during installation.

Please post the output of the following commands
Code: Select all
uname -a
cat /etc/issue
lspci -knn | grep -iA2 net
sudo modprobe -r wl; sudo modprobe wl
sudo iwconfig
