I'm not sure where to begin...
Anyway, I wasn't criticising the quality of the Broadcom drivers but install/availabilty issues (can't find them at all for WinXP!).
Thats Cool, BTW they are for Linux Not win or XP
I said I was reluctant to go to the trouble of hardwiring (ie ethernet cable) to my router just to resolve what shouldn't be a problem. Furthermore the messages and system do not give me an option of from where or by what mechanism it is to be installed/activited. Clearly it is on the livecd - somewhere. Also the Package Manager says the drivers are installed!
You should have a Hardware Drivers Tool in your Menu under System, look around, find it , click on it, Let it scan your system, Find the STA Driver in the list, Hit enable,(make sure you are plugged up to the Internet) It will Download & install Automatically, You may have to reboot, Done.
I believe the linux driver is available from the Broadcom site but am intrigued by the anomaly - or is it deliberate?
No, See Instructions Above
What happens between purring on the livecd and installation? Is there some kind of legal issue between the two situations?
No, you just do not see it , & or it is hidden.
[PS Googling suggests that the propriety STA driver is much more effective - speed/range - than the free B43]
