Check dmesg output. The only way I got bcm43xx to work on my HP zv6015
was by turning off WEP authentication at the AP. This may be a problem
that is specific to my AP.
You don't mention using fwcutter to set up the firmware for bcm43xx.
fwcutter (available from extras I think) includes a README file
regarding how to extract and then configure the firmware for the bcm43xx
module. More documentation at
http://bcm43xx.berlios.de/?go=Documentation. You can also try a google
search for "bcm43xx fwcutter".
I run FC4 on an HP ZD7280 laptop that has a Broadcom wifi modem in it.
I've been running it with ndiswrapper on a variety of kernels for the
last 2 years. It has worked great.
So, this weekend I upgraded to a 2.6.17 kernel and now wifi doesn't
work. And I can't get it working. I tried ndiswrapper versions 1.14
and 1.23. uname -r = 2.6.17-1.2143_FC4smp.
I heard that 2.6.17 ships with bcm43xx. The driver files for my wifi
modem are bcmwl5 and bcmwl5a.
/sbin/lsmod | grep bcm43
bcm43xx 440009 0
ieee80211softmac 36673 1 bcm43xx
ieee80211 37641 2 bcm43xx,ieee80211softmac
/sbin/lsmod | grep ndiswrapper
What am I missing ? How do I get it running ?
