    Restricted Drivers

    I upgraded to 11.10 yesterday and got an error message firmware-b43-installer not installed. I believe I need to get to the Restricted drivers to activate it and allow my wireless to work again. I had this issue when I originally installed Ubuntu. My problem is that with Unity enabled (another problem I have as I do not like Unity), I cannot find these restricted drivers. Someone please help me locate where to go for this.

    Hi,
    Either:
    1. Click the "Dash home" button at the top of the launcher.
    2. Start typing drivers.
    3. Click "Additional Drivers".


    or:
    1. Click the system menu, far top right of panel.
    2. Click "System Settings".
    3. Click "Additional Drivers".


    Hope this helps,
    Ezra.
