Hello Community

I have a pen with Backbox 3.0, and everything is fine unless the wireless does not work.
(it is possible record changes in the pen to work after a reboot?)
When I try to enable the wireless, it gives me an error and locks the computer: "...[885.256017] CR2: 000000000000004c"

Computer Brand Name: Acer TravelMate 6000 (6003LCi)
Network Card: Broadcom BCM4309 802.11b/g Wireless NIC
Hardware ID: PCI\VEN_14E4&DEV_4318&SUBSYS_03121468&REV_02


Thanks

Hm,

From i can see you can push up to 2gb of ram etc.., BBox 4.5.1 will be ok even with 1gb for basic stuff. But, before try this:

sudo apt-get remove --purge bcmwl-kernel-source
sudo apt-get autoremove
sudo apt-get install linux-firmware-nonfree

Good luck.
