    Default WPA for BCM4318

    Hello,

    I try to configure my laptop to access internet by a WPA connexion with a livebox (orange).
    A little summary :
    - i'm on opensuse 11.0
    - my chipset is :Broadcom Corporation BCM4318 [AirForce One 54g] 802.11g Wireless LAN Controller (rev 02)
    - i use ndiswrapper cause the driver installed by opensuse hasn't worked
    - internet works with WEP encryption but i can't connect with WPA encryption
    - i use Knetworkmanager
    - i have configured network module in YAST like in knetworkmanager
    - my wpa_supplicant.conf :
    "ctrl_interface=/var/run/wpa_supplicant
    ctrl_interface_group=wheel

    network={
    ssid="prout"
    key_mgmt=WPA-PSK
    psk="xxxx"
    priority=2
    }
    "
    And it doesn't work.
    I need help .

    If you install the firmware, the open-source driver _WILL_ work.
    BCM4318's have been supported for a long time. With an Internel
    connection, open a console terminal and enter the command

    sudo /usr/sbin/install_bcm43xx_firmware

    I use KNetworkManager to control my WPA network. Right click on the
    applet icon, select a "New Connection" and choose your wireless
    device. From the popup, select the essid you want and put in the
    necessary "secret".

    This process will work with the open-source driver. It may not with
    ndiswrapper.
