Default how to find where did the downloaded driver go

I am in a stage where I am frequently formatting my computer.My laptop
needs some kind of properietary wifi driver.
After installation of Ubuntu I go to control panel and enable the
available drivers for this machine.
Where it downloads or enables STA Broadcomm driver.I want to know how
do find out what changes does it do or where does it keeps the
downloaded file since I have to format my laptop
many many times so I want to copy it in a USB.That will save some
time at my end.

Hi John,
Trust me, with kernel 2.6.32-71.29.1.el6.x86_64 it works like a charm. =

It is true I had to detect by myself the IO port the BIOS assign to the =

card and that's all. As I don't have to change daily the card to a =

different slot, everything works if I load the driver parport_pc with =

parameter io=3D0x2018.
I was able to do this because if I type lspci, the operating system =

detects the card. The problem comes when I start with kernel =

2.6.32-131.17.1.el6. Then lspci does not not show the card in the right =

way. Instead a message with the text "!!! Unknown header type 7f" =

appears in the section of that card.

Ummm... well among so many files which one is the driver file and
where is it copied also I do not think what you answered is correct.

What he said is correct, it just didn't answer your question

I'm not aware of a means of getting the filename (or even package name)
out of the hardware drivers wizard, but I've not looked. You should,
though, be able to find it by searching the software centre for
'Broadcom' and checking what's already installed. You can then use this
to get the files out of /var/apt/cache/archives.

What I would do is use nm-tool to see what driver the wifi is using,
then lsmod to look for the module then modinfo to find it on disk, and
dpkg -S to see which package brought it in:-

alan@mbp:~$ nm-tool | grep Driver
Driver: wl
Driver: tg3

alan@mbp:~$ lsmod | grep wl
wl 2568210 0
lib80211 14991 2 lib80211_crypt_tkip,wl

alan@mbp:~$ modinfo wl
filename: /lib/modules/3.0.0-12-generic/updates/dkms/wl.ko
license: MIXED/Proprietary


alan@mbp:~$ dpkg -S /lib/modules/3.0.0-12-generic/updates/dkms/wl.ko
dpkg-query: no path found matching pattern
/lib/modules/3.0.0-12-generic/updates/dkms/wl.ko.

This says to me that a script generated it (dkms gives this away).

Look for packages with "wl" in the name:-


alan@mbp:~$ dpkg -l "*wl*" | grep ^ii
ii bcmwl-kernel-source 5.100.82.38+bdcom-0ubuntu4
Broadcom 802.11 Linux STA wireless driver source

So list what's in that package:-

alan@mbp:~$ dpkg -L bcmwl-kernel-source
