    Unhappy Dell Wireless 1390 Card, need a Howto for opensuse 11.0

    Hello everyone,

    I've having a problem getting suse to recognize my wireless card. I've tried some of the old fixes but came up unsuccessfully. Does anyone have a HowTo specifically for the 1390 dell wireless card (using ndiswrapper or some other method)?

    Thanks in advance.

    If you have Internet access without the wireless, open a terminal
    window and enter the following command:

    sudo /usr/sbin/install_bcm43xx_firmware

    This script will download the file that contains the firmware, extract
    and install it in the correct directory. You should then be able to
    bring up your wireless device and have it work.

    If you don't have Internet access in Linux, you will need to download
    the file

    http://mirror2.openwrt.org/sources/b...0.10.5.tar.bz2

    using Windows, a friend's computer, or whatever. Then copy it into
    your home directory. Once you have it there, you should enter the
    following:

    tar xjf broadcom-wl-4.150.10.5.tar.bz2
    sudo mkdir -p /lib/firmware
    sudo b43-fwcutter -w /lib/firmware \
    broadcom-wl-4.150.10.5/driver/wl_apsta_mimo.o

    These three commands will skip the download step and extract the firmware.
