I just installed Linux Mint (Debian Edition) Xfce x64 on my laptop, in preparation of getting my new computer for Christmas. Anyways, I am trying to connect to wireless, but I can't seem to get it to work. I would attach the output of inxi -F and lsmod, but it would take me a while to manually type it into the computer I'm on right now. My card is a Broadcom BCM4322 802.11a/b/g/n Wireless LAN Controller, and I followed this tutorial (with downloaded .deb files) but most of the commands ended in error.

Don't you have any access to a wired connection for your laptop? Ubuntu and Mint come with a "install new drivers" application that should take care of that automatically. – user33758 Dec 15 '11 at 4:38
    
@screener thanks for answering, I'll try that later. – yutsi Dec 15 '11 at 11:13
    
The wired connection isn't working now. The (useless) network manager has an x on its icon. – yutsi Dec 15 '11 at 19:58

Sounds like you should try The Great Dead NIC Workaround! A ten minute visit to your friend's house and a thumb drive.
