    Exclamation setup wifi in lg g550

    Hello all, i for the first time installed bt5 in my laptop which is LG G550. Though all seem to work fine with wired internet connection, i am not able to use my wifi network. Here is my wifi details and other which you all might need to help me out sort out this problem. I tried hitting all around the web to crack my wifi which is wep encrypted but after an hour later i came to know my wifi is not enabled so here i am now. Btw one more thing i want to crack my wifi so i need to install the wifi network. do help me with that also if possible but first please guide me installing the wifi drivers and stuff.

    Code:
    root@bt:~# lspci | grep -i network 
    04:00.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4312 802.11b/g (rev 01)
    
    root@bt:~# iwconfig
    lo        no wireless extensions.
    
    eth0      no wireless extensions.

    Did you started the network services?

    /etc/init.d/wicd start

    Then recheck iwconfig

    Chipset is supported. Check the module loaded by kernel: lsmod | grep -i b43* and see what you get.

    Also you can post the dmesg.

    Luck.

    thanks a bunch marvik. finally my wifi is working.
    heres the out put of iwconfig
    Code:
    lo        no wireless extensions.
    
    eth0      no wireless extensions.
    
    wlan0     IEEE 802.11bg  ESSID:off/any  
              Mode:Managed  Access Point: Not-Associated   Tx-Power=20 dBm   
              Retry  long limit:7   RTS thr:off   Fragment thr:off
              Encryption key:off
              Power Management:off
    as you said i tried lsmod | grep -i b43* and got some result which i am unable to get what exactly it is.
    Code:
    b43                   292690  0 
    mac80211              248838  1 b43
    cfg80211              152934  2 b43,mac80211
    ssb                    37712  1 b43
    and this is the output i got after dmesg which exceeded the post limit. so i copied it in a text file and uploaded it. just a text file. look for the link.


    now what next? please do guide me.
