Download Broadcom Proprietary Driver with another computer
I havr no access to an ethernet connection and for some reason my proprietary broadcom adapter driver has been uninstalled so I cannot connect wirelessly with this computer. However, I have another computer that can connect to the internet wirelessly.
I need to know where to go to download the driver package on one computer (using windows) and save it to a flash drive that I can use to install it on another computer.
Alternatively, since this driver was enabled on my computer, is it possible to re-enable is using the terminal? What commands would I need to use to do this?
Or, am I simply doomed to not have a wireless adapter until I am able to connect MY laptop to the internet using ethernet?
Thanks in advance for any advice someone may be able to provide.
Re: Download Broadcom Proprietary Driver with another computer
If the driver was previously installed you can try searching for the package in /var/cache/apt/archives. If you find the driver package there you can manually install it. It'd also be helpful to know precisely which Broadcom driver you need.
