Ok so I checked the dmesg and a little further down it states:
b43-phy0 ERROR: Firmware file "b43/b0g0bsinitvals5.fw" not found
b43-phy0 ERROR: Firmware file "b43-open/ucode5.fw" not found
b43-phy0 ERROR: You must go to http://wireless.kernel.org/en/users/...devicefirmware
and download the correct firmware for this driver version. Please carefully read all instructions on this website.
Ok so I am assuming that I dont have the appropriate drivers. Since I only have Slacko running the entire hard drive and no longer have Windows, is there a way I can download the driver and put it on a usb drive and unpack that way??? Will I need any special software to do this. Thanks in advance for any help.
