    Question Linux Mint and WiFi

    Got the Linux Mint live USB up and running - anyone got any info about getting the WiFi working?

    On my netbook I just had to toggle it on using the F2 key. But I don't know if the T100 has a WiFi toggle like that. You may need to set it up in the Mint driver manager (look in the administration menu) if the driver you want isn't the one it shows try (with the live usb connected) selecting 'do not use this device' and confirming. Then it may detect the proper driver for you.

    Unfortunately that doesn't work.
    The problem seems to be that Debian-related distros (I've tried Linux Mint and Ubuntu) don't even see the WiFi network adapter.
    Commands like
    Code:
    lspci -vvnn
    don't list any network adapter AT ALL! :-(
    I've posted a query on the Ubuntu forums as to what's going on....

    The wifi device is connected to SDIO rather than pci so lspci won't see it. It also requires a separate driver (brcmfmac43241b4.sdio) and a copy of the nvram as *.txt. There is a G+ ubuntu/T100 group that has a copy of the driver and instructions for getting wifi running or install a newer kernel that has this driver included 4.1+ ). In the mean time, USB support is really good. An external wifi dongle should see your router as soon as you plug it in.

    FWIW, I'm running Mint17.2/Cinnamon on the CHI (tethered to a powered USB hub.) It would be nice if ASUS would resume linux support on its products. There are some T100/-CHI hardware details not yet public (like how to use the internal bluetooth, web cam/microphone, sound, etc.) The older T100TA/TM/TAF models have more working, although they needed the wifi driver too and still have loose ends too.
