  • Please download this file to your desktop. Right-click it and select 'Extract Here.' Now get a temporary working internet connection by ethernet or any other means and open a terminal:

    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install build-essential linux-headers-generic
    cd ~/Desktop/backports-3.18.1-1
    make defconfig-wifi
    make
    sudo make install
    

    This is a fairly lengthy process, so please be patient. Reboot and tell us if your wireless is working.

    There is one additional step. You have compiled the driver for your currently running kernel only. When Update Manager installs a later kernel version, also known as linux-image, after the requested reboot, you must recompile:

    cd ~/Desktop/backports-3.18.1-1
    make clean
    make defconfig-wifi
    make
    sudo make install
    

    Reboot again and your wireless will again be working. Please retain the file and these instructions for that time.
