I have a dual booting Toshiba Satellite R630-13T (Windows 7/Ubuntu 11.10). I want to replace 11.10 by doing a fresh 12.04 install leaving me with a dual booting (Windows 7/Ubuntu 12.04).
I am using the Ubuntu 12.04 64bit Alternate CD - because I want a command line system first and may add the GUI later.
I am currently part the way through the install and have encountered the following message:
Detect network hardware
Some of your hardware needs non-free firmware files to operate. The firmware can be loaded from removable media, such as a USB stick or floppy.
The missing firmware files are: brcm/bcm43xx-0.fw
If you have such media available now, insert it, and continue.
Load missing firmware from removable media?
Yes / No
I understand the message and the reason for it but where can I get the firmware file from?
I tried searching on here and Google too, but I've mostly found instructions on how to get the Broadcom wireless card working once everything is installed (possibly using fwcutter). But being picky and with a nice new set up, I'd like to just find and add this driver at this point in the install if possible.
My searches threw up the following, without being entirely obvious what I need to do:
The wireless is not crucial to the install as I have a wired connection but I would like to do a 'proper, clean' install.
Appreciate any help,
