    Installing firmware-b43-installer without internet connectivity

    Could anyone tell me how to install firmware-b43-installer without internet connectivity. I downloaded firmware-b43-installer from another computer with internet. Then I found out from the error messages I also needed b43-fwcutter. So I also downloaded then installed b43-fwcutter. b43-fwcutter installed with no problems. Then I tried to install firmware-b43-installer again with no luck. I saw in the error messages it said something about broadcom-wl-4.150.10.5.tar.bz2. I have no idea how to install a tar.bz2 file.

    Here is where I downloaded the files I needed.

    http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/poo...10.5-4_all.deb
    http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/poo...013-2_i386.deb

    http://mirror2.openwrt.org/sources/b...0.10.5.tar.bz2

    I have all the files now so what do I need to do to install firmware-b43-installer?
