I just installed Ubuntu 11.10 on a Compaq Presario V5000 (V5102NR specific) and can't get the wireless network to work (54g 802.11b/g WLAN with 125HSM BCM4318).
I've tried to install by copying b43-fwcutter-015 & B43 1.5 into
/lib/firmware/ file to not avail.
I used this command to input them:
sudo cp -r ~/wireless/* /lib/firmware/
My wireless didn't work after restart and now I can't delete these files becuase I don't have owner permission even though I changed my group to root.
The current settings say:
Kernel river in use: b43-pci-bridge kernel modules: ssb
Network connection still says firmware missing. I do not have a wired connection although I do have another laptop thats connected to a hotspot.
I've been trying all day. Help!!!!
Note: My first time using Ubuntu or any Linux based OS.
