so the question becomes what firmware do you need. you can figure out 
which driver Mate is using or just look for the specs for the laptop 
and find the firmware.

people here can help. I don't recall but did you provide the model and 
brand of laptop?

the fact it is working in Mate means it will work in Trinity.

I've had to fool around with Broadcom chipsets to get wifi working on 
a Thinkpad I have. a bit of a hassle and then it's done.
