Cannot get to turn on my WiFi

Hi there. I would appreciate if someone can guide me on how to get the correct drivers for my laptop Dell E5430 Ltitude. I have installed the cibersecurity version in 01/20/21, my wireless card is a Broadcom BCM4313 802.11bgn with the driver: wl, what can I do in order to get it working if possible, if not what alternatives do you suggest, thanks in advance.


sudo apt install firmware-brcm80211
modprobe -r brcmsmac ; modprobe brcmsmac

You may need to run

iw reg set <EU|US|JP>


iw reg set US

to use the usual channels (1-11).

It did not work bro, I can see the option to turn on the wifi but it never does it!

It has the Kernel Linux 5.9.0 if that helps, thanks.

All that inxi -N does is display your network cards and the drivers they are using. I don’t know why the other poster deleted his post. What does this command output?

sudo ip link set wlan0 up

It did not display anything to be honest, I thought it was going to enable wifi but it didn’t

Good. What kind of output do you get with


And did you install firmware-brcm80211?
