View Full Version : [ubuntu] installing wireless drivers without using the manager

May 1st, 2009, 01:07 AM
I have a relatively simple question:
I need to get a new wireless card to work. The drivers for it are in the repositories. the "Broadcom STA wireless drivers". Here's my problem. I can only get it to show up if I have the card in. But i need a different card in so i can actually download the driver. So, this leaves me with two options. I can download the drivers manually without using the manager, or I can go buy an ethernet cable, because I don't have one. so my question is, is it possible to download those drivers without using the manager, and how?
thanks in advance.
