This is the closest I have ever gotten with the bcm43xx driver on this
laptop.  OpenSuSE 10.2 will not even see the hardware.

I am using the latest firmware which I extracted with bcm43xx-fwcutter
and have it placed in /lib/firmware.

If anyone has any ideas, thoughts, suggestions I would appreciate them.
Under FC6 I was able to get my laptop (HP zv6015us with a Broadcom 4306 wireless NIC) to work with the bcm43xx driver only if I disabled authentication on my AP. You might give this a *brief* try. That is, set your AP as open and see if you can connect. If you can connect and you're sure that you have the authentication set up correctly on your laptop then it sounds like bcm43xx still doesn't like to authenticate. If you still can't connect, there's always ndiswrapper. I'm currently running the 1.45 version of ndiswrapper with a kernel under CentOS 5 and the connection is very stable. Also, I'm currently running WPA-PSK authentication.
