Thread: Unsure about firmware

    Default Unsure about firmware

    I have been using my laptop with wired connection as network didn't work.
    I think I have the information needed to get right firmware but not sure what to do next.

    Wireless LAN present
    kernel driver:ssb
    udi = '/org/freedesktop/Hal/devices/platform_i8042_i8042_KBD_port_logicaldev_input'

    Can anyone tell me where to find the firmware I need and give me a link to method of installation.

    Cheers
