I have just installed Ubuntu 16.04.1 LTS on my Desktop PC that has a built in wireless adapter in the motherboard (Broadcom 802.11ac 14e4:43b1).

Right now I do not have the installation disk nor access to ethernet so the below post did not work for me. Installing Broadcom Wireless Drivers

I found this drivers https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/bcmwl/

and i am wondering how do i install this offline.

Please help, I am a complete beginner and would be really helpful if you can elaborate.

Thanks Avinash
