If your laptop does bcm4321 linux mint detect your wireless card some users have mentioned that using rfkill bcm4321 linux mint all will solve the problem. Others simply turned the WiFi switch on their laptops off and then on again Physical switch available on this laptops. If it works then add it to you RC files so it is executed every time you boot. You can change PIO to 1 if you need to it. For all Wireless cards in general, it is very important to also take into consideration the network devices you are using Routers, Switches, Wireless Channels and Wireless Bands, etc.


With this information you will bcm4321 linux mint able to evaluate better what the source of the problem could be when you arrive at a dead end. Even after installing the correct driver the user would end up in a "trying to connect" loop. It would see the wireless SSID but when trying to connect to it, it would enter an reconnecting loop. The solution was that this particular wireless device did not support 40 Mhz channels nor does it support The router in that case was actually broadcasting with a forced 40 Mhz and on WiFi-N only. This is a case scenario that also repeats in other cases, so a proper evaluation of the network equipment would help a lot.

This can happen with modern Routers that have the ability to extend the wireless connection by offering the same SSID. If your connection drops very often, it means you are almost in the middle of both router devices. To lower or eliminate the dropping rate of your wireless device, try to position yourself where your wireless card can see only one router or at least one of the routers has a higher signal strength than the other one.
