Summary0007117: firmware-b43-installer requires third party download
DescriptionThe package firmware-b43-installer starts a wget or curl command and tries to download some packages from third party sources. This is a big problem if the kali installation is behind a corporate proxy/firewall that only allows access to the kali repos. The package should bring this file in the installation package with it or fetch it as a sub package from the kali package mirrors instead.

Unfortunately we can't rehost the file due to the licensing, so there isn't much we can do here.
