    Compaq Presario CQ40 GnackTrack R6 No wireless drivers.


    Hello there.
    The distro that I have installed is based on Ubuntu 10.10 but when I select System _> Administration there is no driver application that will allow me to find proprietary drivers for my wireless card.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Hello and Welcome!

    Try this:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install b43-fwcutter
    Reboot, and you should be good to go.

    Thanks for your quick reply.
    Sorry that I have taken so long to get back but I have been a little busy.

    I followed your suggestion only to be told that the latest version is already installed. I have tried un-installing and re-installing but to no avail.

    Any further help would be greatly appreciated.

    Could you post the output of
    Code:
    dmesg | grep firmware

    I'm sorry but the command
    Code:
    dmesg | grep firmware
    has no output.

    I think this distro just hates me

    Latest version installed, but it's not loading...
    Try this... it should add the firmware to your startup process:
    Code:
    echo "b43" | sudo tee -a "/etc/modules"
