    Re: How to: Broadcom Wireless cards

    When I try to ectract the firmware from the driver, it says

    adam@adam-laptop:~$ sudo bcm43xx-fwcutter -w /lib/firmware ~/Desktop/wl_apsta.o
    sudo: bcm43xx-fwcutter: command not found

    Any suggestions? Any and all help would be much appreciated. I'm new to this!

    The message means that the file you are looking for probably doesn't exist.

    Where did you put wl_apsta.o ? My guess is that you don't know what the ~ means or you mistyped it. (http://www.gnu.org/software/bash/man...ilde-Expansion)

    exit
    Reboot, without the ethernet cable, and let us know how the wireless is working.
    After the restart it still did not work for me.

    I did this in the terminal lspci | grep Broadcom\ Corporation and this is the outcome

    Code:
    Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4318 [AirForce One 54g] 802.11g Wireless LAN Controller (rev 02)

    Simply do
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install firmware-b43-installer
    in a terminal window
