Re: [SOLVED]netinstall and broadcom wifi problems

The second question - all the drivers were already in the 700MB iso file. As you've found, installing the firmware in a running system is OK.

The first question - sorry I can't help. I tried in the past to follow Debian's instructions to install drivers from a usb stick but could never get it to work. Luckily for me the firmware iso contained what I needed.

Re: [SOLVED]netinstall and broadcom wifi problems

I think there is a bug active for the netinstall loading non-free drivers. It seems to loop you around endlessly. You might try a daily netinstall build and see if they have made progress on that. Of course, it goes without saying that a daily build may break other stuff. So far, I have been lucky enough to have one or the other working via free drivers.
