    Re: WiFi Firmware

    yes here ypou go
    download this file http://www.omattos.com/sites/default...all-fw.tar_.gz

    Then transfer it over to your Ubuntu box

    Now in your Ubuntu Box [computer] please make your way to your Home folder

    Once you are at your home folder right click on your home folder and make a new folder and call it Wireless






    Now that you have made a new folder called wireless in your home directory. It is time to move the downloaded file into the new folder called wireless







    Next we need to move that folder to the firmware directory to do this open your terminal and type in
    Code:
    sudo cp -r ~/Wireless/* /lib/firmware/







    Now lets double check to make sure the download made it to the firmware directory. Too do this type this into the terminal
    Code:
    ls /lib/firmware
    Do you see it there ? Good if not it did not moved. Go back to the last step and try again. But if you do see it lets move on to the next step






    Ok so now that the download is in the firmware dir we are going to have to go there. To go there open your terminal and type in.
    Code:
    cd /lib/firmware
    Now that you have moved lets double check to make sure this next code tells us where we are in the computer file dir. This next code stands for "print working directory"
    Code:
    pwd
    are you at /lib/firmware if so good if not go back one step






    Now that we are in the firmware directory. We have to extract the download to do this type in
    Code:
    sudo -s
    then enter your password then
    Code:
    tar -xzf b43-all-fw.tar_.gz
    then
    Code:
    exit
    Now it is time to reboot
    Code:
    sudo reboot
    Do you have wireless now ?
