that doesn't yield anything useful on my system and the firmware is 

I thought

lspci |grep -i control

is better as it yields the chipset in my case:

I don't have my other linux machine running here but as I said, it 
coughs up Broadcom.

then search for the firmware for your adapter.

is my approach fundamentally mistaken?
