Ubuntu wifi

It seems like every time I install Ubuntu I have to fix something.

For my old Inspiron 6400 it’s usually wifi. It uses a Broadcom wifi chip and I found these instructions useful in fixing it on Ubuntu 16.04

  1. Download the b43 firmware.
  2. Copy the folders b43 and b43legacy into /lib/firmware.
  3. Reboot.
