[SOLVED!]wifi driver for Asus PCE-AC68

[SOLVED!]wifi driver for Asus PCE-AC68

Postby adhemar » Dec 9th, '18, 17:51

I install Mageia 6 KDE 64 bit on my desktop pc without internet connection.
When I "Set up a new network" in MCC, there is no wireless driver visible.

The command iwconfig give the message: no wireless extensions.

My wireless PCI-E adapter is a Asus PCE-AC68.

What can I do to make a wireless connection without a cable connection?
I am a beginner.

Please at least add the output of the following command:
Code: Select all
lspcidrake -v
Cauldron is not for the faint of heart!
Caution: Hot, bubbling magic inside. May explode or cook your kittens!

I only see one wireless device there:

bcma            : Broadcom Limited|BCM4360 802.11ac Wireless Network Adapter [NETWORK_OTHER] (vendor:14e4 device:43a0 subv:1043 subd:85df) (rev: 03)


Checking against https://wireless.wiki.kernel.org/en/use ... f_hardware it seems this is only supported by the proprietary wl driver, so you should probably install dkms-broadcom-wl and then try again.
