    Actually 127.0.0.1 is the localhost that is a "virtual" network interface or in other word a build in eth interface or loop back interface. You can use it even if you have no actual network card available.

    Could you use another box to access internet, search for & download missing file?
    Then transfer file to other box with usb stick.

    I think I have a solution. You have both the bcm43xx....deb file and the wl_apsta-3.130.20.0.o file. Correct?

    Put the .deb file somewhere convenient, right-click on it and choose 'Extract here'. You'll get a folder extracted containing the contents - control.tar.gz and data.tar.gz. Do an 'extract here' on data.tar.gz and you'll get a /usr folder containing /bin and /share folders. In the /share folder is yet another subfolder called /bcm43xx-fwcutter, and in that folder is the executable script install_bcm43xx_firmware.sh. The script in the version I downloaded consists of this:

    Code:
    #!/bin/sh
    
    set -e
    
    dname=wl_apsta.o
    if [ -e /usr/bin/wget ]; then DL="wget -O $dname"; fi
    if [ -e /usr/bin/curl ]; then DL="curl -o $dname"; fi
    
    cd /tmp
    $DL http://downloads.openwrt.org/sources/wl_apsta-3.130.20.0.o
    bcm43xx-fwcutter $dname
    mkdir -p /lib/firmware
    for i in *.fw; do
            mv $i /lib/firmware/$i;
    done
    rm wl_apsta*.o
    But check yours. There were a few versions of the bcm cutter package to choose from. In the /bin folder is the executable bcm43xx-fwcutter. So, as far as I can see, all you have to do is put the bcm43xx-fwcutter executable and wl_apsta-3.130.20.0.o file in the same place, and do each command in the script from the 'bcm43xx-fwcutter $dname' line, adapting that to:

    Code:
    sudo ./bcm43xx-fwcutter wl_apsta-3.130.20.0.o
    The for - done loop you could probably do as a 'sudo mv *.fw /lib/firmware/'.

    As far as I can make out bcm43xx-fwcutter must extract a number of *.fw firmware files from wl_apsta-3.130.20.0.o, which you need to move to lib/firmware. And that's it really.

    I did it and it extracted it, but I noticed its contained in a file which I can't seem to open even with sudo. so I moved the whole file in
