    here's me, and i'm very new to linux
    asus netbook 1015pn-pu17
    BT5r1 is installed and working from USB stick.
    *problem: need to do update, synaptic, etc, but i can't get BT to see my wireless, which is my only source of connection. ifconfig shows eth0 and lo but no wlan0. assume it's a driver issue, but don't know how to install alternate driver w/o internet, or which driver to install when i do figure out how to install new driver offline. (unless there's another workaround i don't know about.)


    below are outputs from ifconfig, airdriver-ng loaded/installed/kernel, and iwconfig.

    edit: dont know if this matters, but i created boot USB stick with unetbootin, stick is 16GB, and i allocated maximum persistent memory (9999MB). have tested and confirmed that changes to files do indeed stick.

    According to the Archlinux Wiki:
    - https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/ASUS_Eee_PC_1015pn

    This blog, tells you "How to enable broadcom wireless BCM4311 card on Linux Mint 11", Linux Mint being Derived from Ubuntu the same as Backtrack.
    http://drndivoje.wordpress.com/2011...adcom-wireless-bcm4311-card-on-linux-mint-11/

    As I have said elsewhere in this forum , if your computer is offline you can download apps and dependencies on a second computer by using e.g. Keryx Project, Sushi-Huh?, APTonCD or Synaptic...
