Device firmware installation
The Broadcom wireless chip needs proprietary software (called "firmware") that runs on the wireless chip itself to work properly. This firmware is copyrighted by Broadcom and must be extracted from Broadcom's proprietary drivers. To get such firmware on your system, you must download the driver from a legal distribution point, extract it, and install it. This is accomplished different ways by different Linux distributions, so please read the section for yours for the best results. You will need an alternate working internet connection (by Ethernet cable, for example) since the firmware cannot be included with the distro itself.
Post details for missing distributions at firstname.lastname@example.org
. Note: the firmware from the binary drivers is copyrighted by Broadcom Corporation and cannot be redistributed.
So what do I need to do according to the first paragraph above? I have gone to the broadcom site and downloaded the MSwindows driver for 4306.
This driver is doing the same thing as two drivers provided in the PCLOS repo. All three indicate that they apparently should work but none of them do.
Does anyone have any ideas? Is there anything else I can check? See my other posts in this thread I have run most of the listed checks multiple times. I have been to the above listed URL more than once. i have unistalled and re-installed the bcmwl6.inf file a couple times.
