This question already has an answer here:
Need to get my wireless network adapter working on Ubuntu 14.1, but when trying to install the required package
bcmwl-kernel-source, the "
apt-get install bcmwl-kernel-source" installation command hangs on asking repetitively for a Ubuntu cdrom installation disk mount even after one is provided. Here is the exact terminal output that I am receiving:
$ sudo apt-get install bcmwl-kernel-source Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done The following NEW packages will be installed: bcmwl-kernel-source dkms 0 upgraded, 2 newly installed, 0 to remove and 12 not upgraded. Need to get 0 B/1,576 kB of archives. After this operation, 8,386 kB of additional disk space will be used. Do you want to continue?

I tried mounting my installation cdrom as requested, but after pressing enter it seems that the installation unmounts the cdrom and loops back to request that I mount it again. Can't get out of this loop. Why does the installation of this package reqest an installation cd? Other packages install fine without requesting this.
