You get these warning because the hardware has a Broadcom ethernet
controller which uses the tg3 module and this module declares it may
need these firmwares :

# modinfo -F firmware tg3

However your Broadcom ethernet controller may not need any of them, or
optionally use one to enable some offload functions.

An aptitude search doesn't turn up anything.
These files are included in the package firmware-linux-nonfree from the
non-free section.

root@frank:/etc/apt# cat sources.list

deb http://ftp.ca.debian.org/debian/ stretch main
deb-src http://ftp.ca.debian.org/debian/ stretch main

deb http://security.debian.org/debian-security stretch/updates main
deb-src http://security.debian.org/debian-security stretch/updates main

What else should be in there ?
The non-free section.

Thanks very much. Changes made to sources.list.
