Apologies in advance for burdening Gentoo forums with a HP Stream 14.

I am booting the live ISO on such a notebook. The notebook does not have an RJ45 ethernet port and I having difficulty getting the Wi-Fi adapter to work.

Can you please explain what I need to do?

Code:
$ lspci -k
01:00.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM43142 802.11b/g/n (rev 01)
Subsystem Hewlett-Packard Company BCM43142 802.11b/g/n
Kernel driver in use: bcma-pci-bridge
Kernel modules: bcma

$ dmesg | grep -i bcma
bus0: found chip with id 43132, rev 0x01 and package 0x08
bus0: core0 found: ChipCommon (manuf 0x04BF, id 0x08, rev 0x28, class 0x0)
bus0: core1 found: IEE 802.11 (manuf 0x04BF, id 0x08, rev 0x28, class 0x0)
bus0: core2 found: PCIe (manuf 0x04BF, id 0x08, rev 0x28, class 0x0)
bus0: core3 found: UNKNOWN (manuf 0x04BF, id 0x08, rev 0x28, class 0x0)

$ ifconfig -a

lo: flags<up, loopback, running> only.. (no other devices)

Hi,

Can you run the Wifi on an other Live Linux, especially SystemRescueCD ? You don't need Gentoo to intstall Gentoo. The Gentoo ISO is a (too) minimal Linux system that can install Gentoo, but any other Live distro is OK.
