    To connect to wifi, disconnect your ethernet cable. Clicky the network manager icon > new connection > wlan0. Select the essid from the list and go through the steps. At the end, select connect and save to connect. Once the essid is saved, you'll see it listed under the wlan section next time you need to connect.
    Works!!! Thanks! Super!

    Question Re: Broadcom BCM4318 with B43 driver installed doesn't work

    Hello All,

    I have a Broadcom bcm4328 with my Dell XPS1330, I've tried ndiswrapper and now b43 still can't use my wireless.

    I greatly appreciate if someone can give me some tips on how to make my wireless functional in OpenSuse11.

    Thanks very much.

    You should have started a new thread. The one you hijacked is about
    BCM4318 - the answers for BCM4328 are _VERY_ different.

    The short answer is that b43 does not work for a BCM4328. No 802.11n
    devices have been reverse engineered. That work is in progress, but
    nowhere near completion.

    You might Google for the Broadcom hybrid driver and try it.
