Hi.
A friend of mine bought a mini pc but lspci does not show any information about the wifi module, I told him he will send me the information in dmesg and this is part of what says.

Check the Boot Manager of the distro you are mainly interested in for a possible brcm module.

Menu>System>Boot Manager>Modules>Add New Module will give you a list.

I think this driver needed: http://distro.ibiblio.org/puppylinux/pet_packages-bionic64/broadcom_sta-6.30.223.271_k4.19.23_amd.pet
Install by clicking on it in ROXFiler.
Will need to blacklist (or skiplist) b43, bcma, brcmsmac, ssb (to skiplist - edit /etc/rc.d/MODULESCONFIG at about line 24, inserting module names with a space either side). Then reboot, choosing save.
