Toshiba laptop with Celeron M CPU, 2 GB RAM, using Linksys WPC300N V1 wireless N PCMCIA adapter.
openSUSE 12.2 M4 KDE with kernel 3.3.0-2-default
Installed b43 successfully via the following as previously prompted by dmesg, and two SOLID pilot lights appear on the wireless card:
Edited /etc/sysconfig/kernel to show MODULES_LOADED_ON_BOOT=b43
Edited /etc/init.d/rc to include "modprob b43" before "0 exit" then saved file
Still have no wireless despite the above steps!
0a:00.0 Network controller : Broadcom Corporation BCM4321 802.11b/g/n [14e4:4329] (rev 01)
Subsystem: Linksys WPC300N v1 Wireless-N Notebook Adapter [1737:0058]
Kernel driver in use: b43-pci-bridge
NB: This time I only use Network Manager to configure wireless connection. However, KDE Daemon keeps asking for password to open kwallet and passphrase to authenticate wireless connection. I got these 2 prompts several times whether wireless connection is created the first time or deleted then re-created later, so wireless connection is never established.
