Thread: BCM4318 issues.

    Question BCM4318 issues.

    Hello all,
    I am a relative newbie to SuSE from Ubuntu, and I have a Dell Inspiron 530S. It came with a Broadcom 4318 802.11g wireless card. This card is recognized by Suse without any tinkering but, it doesn't see my network at all, and even when I try to connect to the network via "connect to other wireless network," and input all the proper information, it starts to connect and then stops. The network is 802.11g WPA-PSK with TKIP and has a shared key. I am running SuSE 10.3 with the Gnome interface. Hope this is enough information...

    What does the output of the dmesg command say?
