wireless driver

无线网卡驱动是 non-free 的,在系统安装过程中,是不会自动安装驱动的。需要用户手工安装,过程如下:

1. Find wireless card class

root@debianiridium:/home/iridium# lspci -nn | grep Network
05:00.0 Network controller [0280]: Broadcom Corporation BCM4311 802.11b/g WLAN [14e4:4311] (rev 01)

2. Add source

# Debian 7 "Wheezy"
deb http://http.debian.net/debian/ wheezy main contrib non-free

(Append these two lines to /etc/apt/sources.list)

3. Update system

apt-get update

4. Install driver

According to step 1, should run this command:

apt-get install firmware-b43-installer
