Missing wifi driver (failed to load brcm/brcm43xx-0.fw)

Postby LorFioroni » 2018-10-14 15:00

Hello everyone, I've just installed a terminal version of debian on my computer. During the installation I've used an ehternet cable to have internet, but now that I've installed everything I would like to connect it to my wifi too (as It was with windows before).
Doing
Code: Select all
sudo ifconfig wlp3s0b1 up
I get the following error:
Code: Select all
brcmsmac bcma0:1: firmware: failed to load brcm/brcm43xx-0.fw (-2) SIOCSIFFLAGS: No such file or directory

Searching on the internet I've found a lot of people with the same error, but I could not fix my error in any way.
I hope someone of you may help me,
thanks,
Lorenzo

Have you added contrib and non-free to your sources list?
