    Post Wireless and Ethernet connection not working


    Hi there.

    Im desparately trying to get my ethernet connection working so I can download some drivers for my wireless connection, but neither are working. A bit of a catch 22 here.

    Im running Ubuntu 10.10 on a HP Mini 1001.

    Heres what I get from the terminal:

    Apparently I need b43/wl driver for my wireless but I cant find it anywhere.
    And I have no idea about the ethernet problem.

    Thankyou for any help!

    Ther is a web site that will take the output of "lspci -n" and tell you drivers.
    Debian HCL; Debian GNU/Linux device driver check & report. Broadcom just released a new driver. I had a broadcom wireless and I had to use one of these two to extract the firmware from the Windows driver to use the device.
