Dell D600 has an internal Broadcom BCM4306 wifi card
I installed Mint Daryna using a D-Link DWL G-650 supported pcmcia wireless card. With net access established, the restricted drives utility obtained the proprietary drivers and installed them. After reboot the BCM4306 worked fine...for months....
I re-installed Daryna but the PCMCIA slot failed. I verified the DWL G-650 card is fine. I have No net access for the restricted drivers. Using a pc I downloaded the sw from http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/universe/b/bcm43xx-fwcutter/bcm43xx-fwcutter_006-3_i386.deb listed in the restricted drivers screen on the laptop.
After the download with Nautilus I clicked on the bcm43xx-fwcutter_006-3_i386.deb and went through the dialog for installing the BCM4306 driver...until a screen titled Specify Firmware location. It gave me 2 choices: a Local File or Download From the Internet with this url, http://xeve.de/down/wl_apsta.o
I can't download as I have No net connection and I do Not know where the firmware is located.
So what do I do?
