I have Haiku hrev52138 on my Dell Inspiron 1545 laptop, dual-booting with Ubuntu Linux. My Haiku system doesn’t have working WiFi and I don’t have access to an Ethernet connection, so I tried using the method that uses a Linux shell script to download the WiFi firmware into a zip file on my Ubuntu system. The problem I keep running into is this: Even after I extract the zip to Haiku’s “/boot” directory, the script “install-wifi-firmwares.sh” still tries to download the firmware off the internet, even though the files are already in the “/boot/system/data/firmware” directory. Does anyone know why this is happening, and/or is there a fix?
P.S. My WiFi card is a Broadcom BCM43xx.
