firmware-realtek (Assuming Debian Stable)
I should mention that this actually got the bluetooth working, but not wifi.

Also, I have now got some Ubiquiti Unifi (yes, I know they violate the GPL, but I didn't know that when I bought them) access points and am using them as a wireless bridge. They have been rock-solid so far. (So make this low priority for answers unless you stumble upon a solution for my wifi card or get asked by others)

Also, my specific pc model is an HP Omen 880 gaming pc. I wasn't sure at the time, but have had more gpu trouble (tried reflashing the VBIOS to fix the displayport, and bricked it) and had to go on to HP's site to check my warranty (entering the serial number told me what it was). Sadly, I had warranty, which didn't cover reflashing the GPU.

Came back to the forum because reinstalling Debian, and need to remember what I did last time.
