Briefly describe your issue below:
I was having issues with my wireless card continually dropping from my network. In trying to update the driver for the built in wireless card (broadcom BCM2046b1) i deleted the driver completely
Bus 001 Device 002: ID 0a5c:4500 Broadcom Corp. BCM2046B1 USB 2.0 Hub (part of BCM2046 Bluetooth)
My skill lvl with this is still fairly low but I have spent the last 3 days researching trying to find a solution but I am coming up blank.
I have searched and serched for a driver to download but I haven’t had any luck.
I believe the best solutions i found were here
Option 1 suggested the following command;
sudo apt-get install linux-firmware-nonfree
which generates the following error msg
E: Unable to locate package linux-firmware-nonfree
I’m not sure how to adapt this to parrot (or if it even needs to be adapted)
Option 2 suggested the following command;
apt-get install linux-image-$(uname -r|sed 's,[^-]*-[^-]*-,,') linux-headers-$(uname -r|sed 's,[^-]*-[^-]*-,,') broadcom-sta-dkms
which generates the following error msg;
└──╼ $sudo apt-get install linux-image-4.19.0-parrot1-$(uname -r|sed ‘s,[^-]-[^-]-,’) linux-headers-4.19.0-parrot1-$(uname -r|sed ‘s,[^-]-[^-]-,’) broadcom-sta-dkms

modprobe: FATAL: Module wl not found in directory /lib/modules/4.19.0-parrot1-20t-amd64
upon reboot still nothing.
any suggestions/guidance on where to from here? Also I’m not sure what i might have missed with distro specific commands that may need to be included?
What version of Parrot are you running? (include version, edition, and architecture)
4.19.20 (i think) Security,
What method did you use to install Parrot? (Debian Standard / Debian GTK / parrot-experimental)
Standard - etcher boot USB
Configured to multiboot with other systems? (yes / no)
