If you see the message “Module build for the currently running kernel was skipped since the kernel source for this kernel does not seem to be installed” then you are missing the appropriate generic linux-header package s. I hope this helps somebody.
Wireless Driver Installation – Making Your Broadcom, Ralink etc. Wifi/Wlan Work
You can also do it from the command line: Debian 9 “stretch” deb http: See Also Wireless Troubleshooting Guide https: Open a new Terminal and use bfwcutter to extract and install the firmware: The bcmwl-kernel-source package depends on the linux-headers packages so you may need to first retrieve the appropriate package s from the online repositories. Configure your wireless interface as appropriate.
The bcmwl-kernel-source package should automatically blacklist the open source drivers so that the STA driver is the only one in use. Just install firmware-binstaller from the Software Center or Synaptic.
Switch wireless on and the wait. To find out your current kernel use the command: Well I have Broadcom wifi and installed the sta driver using the terminal Click the dash, type ‘terminal’and issue the following commands: Update the list of available packages: How do we search wireless networks?
Troubleshooting Examine the kernel ring buffer dmesg 1 to verify the required firmware files are being loaded by the driver. Broadcom Corporation BCM No such file or directory” error message.
