Hi, I had the same package -firmware missing above,
I can't find it in synaptic even when I get add the directories mentioned above. ..
I do get this error message from depository / source control center in Debian 6 after reload -
"the method driver /usr/lib/apt/methods/htp could not be found.
the the method driver /user/lib/apt/methods/htp could not be found.. "
My wireless does not work... My wired networking does work.
(I may have made this mistake by selecting wired as my default hardware on in the install. because I remember it asking me which piece of hardware do you want to favor? - I chose the wired- over the wireless, (stupid)
(which is going to work anyway right? lol
**(the key might be here but I dunno where to look to put it in the lock)**
So I did follow the link and download the realtek package and have it added by the packagemanger. since It wasn't showing up in synaptic right?
and it said that the same version already existed.. .
Wifi radar (as superuser) is the only apt that is seeing the wireless. & my wireless network. Every other network utility I've tried is lollygagging and the system doesn't say it exists.
However... wifi radar can't connect, just stalls out every time. doesn't seem to be able to store settings data on the wireless networks, or access them if it does.. every time you open it the settings are blank again... *z(
Btw, this is a no brand netbook of aliexpress.com hzone 200$
(wifi was working fine before on kubuntu and win7)
hope you know what to do!
