View Full Version : [SOLVED] Live Boot has drivers, actual installation doesn't

March 29th, 2011, 08:02 PM
As the title says the live boot contains the drivers but the actual installation doesn't have them.

My situation:

From Windows I created a bootable USB, booted up Ubuntu to give it a go, and then I Installed Ubuntu over Windows.

Now the problem is that the installed version of Ubuntu doesnt have the Broadcom Drivers I need for my Wireless connection... and now I don't know what to do...

I basically need the Broadcom 4312 Drivers from the USB onto the Installed Ubuntu.

I have checked the Synaptic Package Manager but from there I can only get the Drivers or Software from the Live CD but I have it on a USB and it can't find them.

Could someone please help me?

PS: I'm posting from the Ubuntu Live Boot (USB).
PS2: I've got Ubuntu 10.10 64Bit.

I have solved this poblem, mod can close the thread :D.

We'll basically it's really difficult to get those drivers without much ubuntu knowledge, so the best way to do it is to get an internet connection through something else like ethernet cable and then go to the synaptic packet manager, click on reload, and then enter "broadcom" into the search and you should see them and be able to install them.
