--- Comment #1 from Eugene Shatokhin <eugene.shatokhin at rosalab.ru> ---
An interesting fact is, b43-firmware provides *newer* firmware (corresponding
to the version 6.30.163.46 of the proprietary driver) than b43-firmware-install
installs (the latter corresponds to version 5.100.138 of the driver).

Anyway, due to licensing issues, we cannot distribute the firmware files
directly.

The users have the following options if b43-firmware does not help:

1. Install b43-firmware-install instead.

2. Install the proprietary driver (dkms-broadcom-wl). This currently works for
BCM4313 and newer WiFi adapters and does not work for BCM4311 and BCM4312 due
to the issues in the driver, seemingly ignored by Broadcom.
