Wi-Fi driver not found

Post by Mac291 »

Sorry to ask such a noob Q folks but I've surfed around, tried a few commands and looked at tutorials and still can't figure out what to do to get Broadcom BCM4401-B0 driver for an old dell Inspiron B130.

Ran inxi -Fz to get list, sudo apt-get update, then sudo apt-get install firmware-b44-installer but it didn't find the driver. Forget what the error was. Not sure where else I might find a driver for this laptop.

Any input would be appreciated.


Thank you,

Mac
