I like to try out Live CD/USB's for fun. But in many cases, the live distro cannot detect any wireless signals, presumably because the proper firmware isn't supported for license reasons.
Basically, I want to find the proper driver and know how to install it to make the wireless network work each time I try a Live USB.
But I'm on a wireless network currently (Ubuntu 10.04 LTS), so surely the needed firmware is already in /lib/firmware and I only need to copy it to the corresponding folder on the Live USB?
If I'm correct, what else do I need to do on on the Live USB?
I did a little search and found this link
