    HP Mini 311-1000nr Wireless+Ethernet Trouble

    Hi all! My ethernet and wireless no longer work after running the following commands:

    apt-get update
    apt-get dist-upgrade

    This is my 1st attempt with Kali linux and am unable to resolve the issue after rereading the information located in 03. Installing Kali Linux /Troubleshooting Wireless Drivers and 05. Using Kali Linux /Install NVIDIA Drivers on Kali. i also searched google with no resolution to my problem. I can temporarily resolve by following steps located in this thread: Network connection help with HP mini 311. However, when I try to complete the steps in 05. Using Kali Linux /Install NVIDIA Drivers on Kali with the aforementioned commands, my wireless no longer works and I have to reinstall the wireless driver listed in the aforementioned link. I have looked in Aircrack Link and the Compat-Wireless Link. No resolution.

    What diagnostic commands can run to assist? All I have currently is
    Code:
    rfkill list
    which gives me:
    Code:
    0: hp-wifi: Wireless LAN
    	Soft blocked: no
    	Hard blocked: no
    1: phy0: Wireless LAN
    	Soft blocked: no
    	Hard blocked: no
    I have the latest Kali Linux distro as of this post which is kali-linux-1.1.0a-i386 (2015-05-03, 10:33 AM)

    Edit: I have upgraded to Kali 2.0. Still experienced the same problem mentioned above. Please see post #3 for Solution

    Currently booted with the Live Persistence Kali off of my USB drive. Ethernet and wireless are working fine. I have not entered the update/upgrade commands in terminal.

    Post Resolution

    Hey all! It's been awhile since I've been on here. I finally got around to finding a solution to this. It is a generic solution that should be able to be used across all Debian variants. Since I have used this to solve my problem here with Kali & Ubuntu/Lubuntu/Xubuntu/Ubuntu Mate 14.04 LTS; I can only vouch that it works with the aforementioned. The link is here. I have C&P to thread here as well.

    For an "Offline" install of b43-fwcutter and firmware in Ubuntu...
    (ie. without an working internet connection on the Ubuntu PC)

    [EDIT]

    New instructions for Ubuntu 12.04 can be found at this link:
    http://linuxforums.org.uk/index.php?...81040#msg81040

    [END EDIT}

    Supported models include:
    BCM4301 BCM4306/2, BCM4306/3, BCM4311, BCM4312, BCM4318, BCM4320

    Install b43-fwcutter:
    With the Ubuntu CDROM inserted... navigate on the CD to:
    /pool/main/b/b43-fwcutter/
    and double-click the b43-fwcutter .deb package contained there.
    When the Ubuntu Software Centre opens... click "Install"

    Install patch:
    With the Ubuntu CDROM inserted... navigate on the CD to:
    /pool/main/p/patch/
    and double-click the patch .deb package contained there.
    When the Ubuntu Software Centre opens... click "Install"

    On a separate PC that has a working internet connection, download these 2 files:

    http://downloads.openwrt.org/sources...a-3.130.20.0.o
    and
    http://mirror2.openwrt.org/sources/b...0.10.5.tar.bz2

    Now transfer them to your Home folder on the Ubuntu PC.

    Open a terminal and enter these 6 commands.


    Code:
    cd ~
    tar -xjvf broadcom-wl-4.150.10.5.tar.bz2
    sudo b43-fwcutter -w /lib/firmware wl_apsta-3.130.20.0.o
    sudo b43-fwcutter --unsupported -w /lib/firmware broadcom-wl-4.150.10.5/driver/wl_apsta_mimo.o
    sudo chmod 775 /lib/firmware/b43
    sudo chmod 775 /lib/firmware/b43legacy
    hitting enter after each line, and your password when asked.

    at this point, you *may* need to reboot.

    Now see if the b43 driver is available for activation in System>Administration>Additional Drivers

    Most of this is in the "b43 - No internet access" section here:
    https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Wi...Driver/bcm43xx

    Except for the 2 chmod 775 commands which I found were necessary... at least for me.
