HP mini 210 VT wireless

Hello to all…

This is my first post. I am quite new to linux but since I came to Raspberry Pi I’m improving fast!
I own a quite old HP Mini 210-1099EE Vivienne Tam Edition (details here)
I was looking for a Light Linux distro & I came to lubuntu. It seems to run fine (audio etc…) except the wireless…

I tried an demsg
[ 26.388486] b43-phy0 ERROR: You must go to http://wireless.kernel.org/en/users/Drivers/b43#devicefirmware and download the correct firmware for this driver version. Please carefully read all instructions on this website.

Obviously the recommended website is on 404

Any ideas to help would be appreciated!

You haven’t said what release you’re asking about (also what kernel, the installation media used will control this so providing that detail will tell us).

The following maybe helpful - wireless - Installing "firmware-b43-installer" offline - Ask Ubuntu


Hi Guiverc,

Thx for coming back to me so quickly.
Actually I have downloaded the last one :slight_smile:

log@PC:~$ lsb_release -a
No LSB modules are available.
Distributor ID: Ubuntu
Description: Ubuntu 20.04.2 LTS

I will have a look to the link too

It did work! Thx again…
