The computer is a Dell XPS 8700 desktop with a Windows 10 OS and intel Core i5 processor, about four years old. I just configured it as a dual-boot machine. Unfortunately, the wireless isnt working. lshw -C network yields the following result:

*-network UNCLAIMED
description: Network controller
product: BCM43142 802.11b/g/n
vendor: Broadcom Inc. and subsidiaries
physical id: 0
bus info: [email protected]:04:00.0
version: 01
width: 64 bits
clock: 33MHz
capabilities: cap_list
configuration: latency=0
resources: memory:f7100000-f7107fff

Also, there is no WiFi information in settings menu just as if I do not have a card.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

P.S. I searches, but the info found was relevant to older distributions and upon attempting to apply those fixes, I mostly got that whatever code is needed is no longer downloadable.

P.P.S. Interestingly enough, If I run it only from the USB stick it does not have any problems showing and connecting to WiFi.

I search, however the information discovered was applicable to more seasoned conveyances and after endeavoring to apply those fixes, I generally got that whatever code is required is not, at this point downloadable.
