    Broadcom 4306/3 chip - fwcutter not found - see result in comment.

    I did a full install of 9.10 on my Dell Inspirion 1200 laptop & use a Dell 1350 card, after several posts and replies I went to http://linuxwireless.org/en/users/Dr...wn_PCI_devices and followed the instructions for Ubuntu/Debian. This is the result I get....

    mike@mike-laptop:~$ sudo apt-get install b43-fwcutter
    [sudo] password for mike:
    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree
    Reading state information... Done
    E: Couldn't find package b43-fwcutter
    mike@mike-laptop:~$

    I followed this procedure before installation (live CD) and it successfully found and installed the firmware. Apparently it was saved in live CD. What do I need to do?
    Thanks,

    didn't totally understand the posting. Did you get the b43-fwcutter installed? If so, you need to have a wired connection, reboot and follow what is shown here in the second section.

    No, I didn't get fwcutter installed, the screen shot posted above is what happened. fwcutter "not found". Like I said, I was able to download it using the "livecd" but it won't download after I did the install to my laptop. I really want to get wireless working as my first impression of Ubuntu is good.
