BRCM4313 doesn't work

Postby n0ct1s.deb » 2017-10-28 19:29

Hi, my netbook Samsung NF210 asks for the .fw file of brcm
In jessie, the installer asks for the .fw and the hdr-.fw
But In Stretch, the installer asks for 1 .fw file and after the installation, the NetworkManager says "missing firmware" and I need to install "firmware-b43-installer" and "brcm80211-firmware".

Now I'm reinstalling Debian 9 Stretch in that PC and the Installer didn´t ask me for the firmware file. But I didn´t do that.
