    Download firmware from this:

    export FIRMWARE_INSTALL_DIR="/lib/firmware"
    tar xjf broadcom-wl-
    cd broadcom-wl-
    b43-fwcutter -w "$FIRMWARE_INSTALL_DIR" wl_apsta_mimo.o
    The last line and package version are different from above.

    This file is recognised as:
    ID : FW13
    filename : wl_apsta_mimo.o
    version : 410.2160

    Extracting b43/pcm5.fw
    failed to open file: Permission denied
    mitch@Master-Exploder ~/broadcom-wl- $

    Permission denied? I am obviously the administrator, and running this as a sudo command does not work either.

    Help has ceased, and I have quit trying. Back to the mass of people that think Linux blows.
