Posted on Updated on

If you are using the b43 driver from linux-2.6.24, follow these instructions.

# cd /home/byte
# wget http://bu3sch.de/b43/fwcutter/b43-fwcutter-011.tar.bz2
# tar xjf b43-fwcutter-011.tar.bz2
# cd b43-fwcutter-011
# make

# export FIRMWARE_INSTALL_DIR=”/lib/firmware”
# wget http://downloads.openwrt.org/sources/broadcom-wl-4.80.53.0.tar.bz2
# tar xjf broadcom-wl-4.80.53.0.tar.bz2
# cd broadcom-wl-4.80.53.0/kmod
# sudo /home/byte/b43-fwcutter-011/b43-fwcutter -w “$FIRMWARE_INSTALL_DIR” wl_apsta.o
# reboot

Note that you must adjust the FIRMWARE_INSTALL_DIR path to your distribution. The standard place where firmware is installed to is /lib/firmware. However some distributions put firmware in a different place.
