    If you thought the touchpad solution you found in your other thread was good, look at this for your wi-fi.

    Seems like the wireless device is recognized with the correct driver being used, just needs configuring.

    This is not correct. The 4315 needs either the latest compat-wireless
    package or the Broadcom wl driver. Consult the listings in the
    wireless subforum for info on how to do either of these.
