Linux Mint 11 "Device not ready"
I recently bought a Lenovo ThinkPad Edge E520 which came with Windows 7 Home, I soon got sick of that and wanted to try my luck with Linux. I have previously played around with Ubuntu, Debian and attempted Arch Linux but always got sick of it after a week and reformatted.
I downloaded the Linux Mint 11 64bit DVD .iso and installed it without a problem, but I can't connect to my wireless network. From what I can tell, my wireless NIC is being picked up and has the correct drivers installed and "sudo rfkill list" shows that it is not blocked. I have tried almost every solution I could find online with no luck and I have also tried multiple clean installs, the only thing I haven't done is update the kernel because I am absolutely clueless on that...
Can someone help me out here? I am more than happy to supply you with full details of whatever you need as long as you can list the command for me.
The offending NIC is "Broadcom Corporation Device 0537" and I have tried the STA drivers and the b43 fwcutter firmware.
