My rescued laptop (by baking the motherboard) is back to life - it's a Dell Precision M4300. I've installed Linux Mint 15 and sorted out the Broadcom wireless driver. It sees my wifi network at home, which has WPA/WPA2 encryption. Even though the password is correct, it just wont connect and the pop up just keeps popping up asking for the password after a few seconds of if trying something.
Googling suggests WPA/WPA2 is an extensive problem with Linux. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to get the chuffing thing working?
I'm a Linux newbie, but very PC literate, and don't mind getting my hands dirty.
