pure genius! Ubuntu's firmware-xx-installer installation package for legacy network adapters doesn't install diddly. it *downloads* the firmware for you.
because yeah, people installing network adapter firmware obviously are doing it because they have a working network connection and what they really need help with is downloading the file 9_9

another 30min down the hole finding the actual firmware and the cutter tool for it

    Usually has legal reason: It is not allowed to distribute the firmware, but distribute "downloaders", so the user downloads it himeself in the end.
