I'm not quite sure where the / here comes from, it is
what is causing the problem.

6) If you can see the filename
SMC_USB_WIRELESS_2662.tar.gz in the output of the
previous command continue,
otherwise go back to step 1
It looks like those filenames are subtly different.
SMC_USB_WIRELESS_2662.tar.gz (without a "W" following the
2662). Make sure you use the correct one for the "tar"
command, depending on what the file is actually called.
