I just install Debian on my late 2013 Macbook Pro. Super easy btw, props to the Debian team.
The only issue I have had is with my wireless card. I installed firmware-b43-installer to get wireless working, but now it only detects 2.4 Ghz networks.
03:00.0 Network controller : Broadcom Corporation BCM4331 802.11a/b/g/n [14e4:4331] (rev 02)
Subsystem: Broadcom Corporation BCM4331 802.11a/b/g/n [14e4:4331]
Flags: bus master, fast devsel, latency 0, IRQ 17
Memory at a0600000 (64-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=16K]
Capabilities: <access denied>
Kernel driver in use: bcma-pci-bridge
According to: http://linuxwireless.org/en/users/Drive ... _v266.html
, my card is not even supported.
However, according to https://help.ubuntu.com/community/WifiD ... er/bcm43xx
, maybe I should install the proprietary driver, but I checked their supported devices page https://wireless.wiki.kernel.org/en/use ... ed_devices
and saw this:
PCI-ID Supported? Chip ID Modes PHY version Alternative
14e4:4331 yes (3.2-rc3+) BCM4331 a/b/g/n HT (r1) wl
If I list any B43 packages installed, I get this:
b43-fwcutter/stable,now 1:019-2 amd64 [installed,automatic]
firmware-b43-installer/stable,now 1:019-2 all [installed]
So, based on this information, should I switch to different drivers? Should I have two B43 packages? I'm a little bit confused.
