    Default Wireless Status LED on Acer TM5320 (Broadcom 43xx chip)

    Hello Everybody,

    I have installed openSUSE 11.1 (kernel 2.6.27.25-0.1-pae) on Acer TravelMate 5320 which equipped with Broadcom bcm4311 wireless chip, right now its works perfect thru Broadcom 802.11 Linux STA driver, but one small problem status LED not working when radio module is active nor when TX/RX events occurs, only when i switch off (in Network Manager) radio module LED turn on for 3-5 sec and then switch off( and when i reboot shutdown) its lights on.

    any suggestions ?

    How can we fix a closed-source driver. If you use the open-source
    driver b43, I think the LED works correctly. In any case, it will with
    11.3.

    That was a typo. I meant 11.2 and you will wait until November, or
    install the compat-wireless package now.
