    Default Broadcom 802.11b/g

    Can't get my wireless working... So I have searched tutorials for days and I found this: How To: Setup Broadcom 802.11b/g In Suse - Overclock.net - Overclocking.net

    But I'm stuck at step 8, I think I have the MAC adress, but when I type in: cp ifcfg-eth0 [00:14:A5:18:03:90] ifcfg-wlan0 it says:

    I have other language so I translate this:
    Code:
    linux-st7z:/home/xxx # cp ifcfg-eth0 [00:14:A5:18:03:90] ifcfg-wlan0
    cp: antud siht, `ifcfg-wlan0', ei ole kataloog
    So can someone help me?

    That URL uses ndiswrapper to control your Broadcom device. That is
    absolutely NOT the correct route!!

    If you had read the stickies at the start of this forum, you would
    know what information is needed for us to help you.

    Please open a terminal, enter the command below, and post the output:

    /sbin/lspci -nnv | grep 14e4

    I'm sorry it just that I have been searching for solution for days and I want to get over it already. I just tought that that will work... And I saw that everywhere everyone had hard time getting this card to work right, so i tought I'll skip the usual sulutions.

    So here is the result:
    Code:
    02:01.0 Ethernet controller [0200]: Broadcom Corporation NetXtreme BCM5788 Gigabit Ethernet [14e4:169c] (rev 03)
    02:02.0 Network controller [0280]: Broadcom Corporation BCM4318 [AirForce One 54g] 802.11g Wireless LAN Controller [14e4:4318] (rev 02)

    Hm, the last time I had this card (chipset) getting to work, it took me 10 seconds (for installing the firmware).

    In recent times, the only people with a lot of trouble are those that
    attempt to use ndiswrapper!

    Now that we know that you have a 4318, all you need to do is install
    the firmware.

    Please do the following:

    Uninstall ndiswrapper and delete it.

    Use YaST => Network Devices => Network Settings => Global Options to
    restore the use of NetworkManager. That will simplify the setting of a
    connection.

    Run the following set of commands:

    Code:
    sudo  /usr/sbin/install_bcm43xx_firmware
    sudo  /sbin/modprobe  -rv  b43
    sudo  /sbin/modprobe  -v   b43
    After the successful completion of the above steps, click on the NM
    applet icon in the lower-right hand corner of the screen, select "New
    Connection" for wlan0 and complete all the screens. If you do that
    correctly, your wireless will be working.

    Just remember that whenever you install, rather than upgrade to, 11.2,
    you will need to repeat the process. To eliminate this step, save the
    contents of /lib/firmware/b43 in your home files or on an external
    medium, and restore them after installation.

    My problem is with Broadcom BCM4328 802.11 a/b/g/n (rev 03). I passed all the steps as described by lwfinger above, except renaming /etc/ndiswrapper to /etc/ndiswrapper1 instead of deleting it. The situation now is that KNetworkManager does not offer any new wlan0 connections. The result of

    /sbin/lspci -nnv | grep 14e4

    is

    Code:
    gdzie@kmbizi133gd-lap:~> /sbin/lspci -nnv | grep 14e4
    09:00.0 Ethernet controller [0200]: Broadcom Corporation NetLink BCM5906M Fast Ethernet PCI Express [14e4:1713] (rev 02)
    0c:00.0 Network controller [0280]: Broadcom Corporation BCM4328 802.11a/b/g/n [14e4:4328] (rev 03)
    gdzie@kmbizi133gd-lap:~>
    Please, help the newbie ...

    Wrong driver for that card, not suported by b43.

    Use search function on how to install the broadcom hybrid driver (has been discussed lots of times before).

    Hi, I have the same problem as the friend above. My driver is:

    06:05.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4318 [AirForce One 54g] 802.11g Wireless LAN Controller (rev 02)

    I installed the filmware, but the response at the next commands was:

    sudo /sbin/modprobe -rv b43
    FATAL: Module b43 not found.
    sudo /sbin/modprobe -v b43
    FATAL: Module b43 not found.

    Apparently I'm doing something wrong... I would be grateful if someone would try to help me...
