I'm running Debian Jessie 8.2 from a live boot, from a USB stick. It works; I can boot and use it normally, but I can't connect to WiFi.
I've read that I probably need non-free drivers, (but right now i just want it to work, and it doesn't matter if the drivers are non-free). I've been using this tutorial, which I've been following pretty well.
My network controller is Broadcom Corporation bcm4313 802.11bgm wireless network adapter.
The first weird thing was that the
sources.list file that was mentioned didn't have the line exactly as in the article -- the difference was that it said
http instead of
ftp.us -- all the rest of that line was the same. Would the fact that I'm in Argentina be a reason for this? I saved the changes, and then as said in the article, ran
apt-get update in the terminal.
Question: Why is there a
# before the instruction in the tutorial?
The terminal responded with output saying
failed to fetch and
could not resolve.
Also, how do I copy text from Debian?
By the way, to understand this process better, we aren't trying to download things, right? Because that's my problem: Debian has no Internet connection.
