Thread: BCM 4328 and broadcom hybrid driver

    Default BCM 4328 and broadcom hybrid driver

    I'm trying to make my wireless BCM4328 working, but with no success. According to

    Broadcom.com - 802.11 Linux STA driver

    the hybrid driver is no good for this hardware.

    Here are some details:

    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)
    Please help the newbie ...

    It is.

    And if you would search a little more closely in the forum, you would find links to ready made RPM packages.

    Thanks for your help, Akoellh. That's what I figured out about my system:

    Code:
    gdzie@kmbizi133gd-lap:~> uname -r
    2.6.27.29-0.1-default
    gdzie@kmbizi133gd-lap:~> cat /etc/SuSE-release
    openSUSE 11.1 (x86_64)
    VERSION = 11.1
    Then I browsed your repository

    Index of /repositories/home:/Akoellh/openSUSE_11.1/x86_64

    and I have no idea which package do I need.

    Can you help me a little bit more?
    Thanks.

    Search for 4328, it will be among the first few hits.

    (And no, I don't have those drivers in my repo, I removed them a few months ago.)

    So should I look for a different repo? OK, I'll try. Or, maybe you could help me otherwise?

    Thanks, anyway. I'm still learning.

    Search = Forum's search

    I installed the broadcom-wl package from

    PackMan :: Package details for broadcom-wl

    Then I uninstalled ndiswrapper and removed all relevant folders. I should probably install the new driver? What are the next steps? Sorry to keep asking, but I am really confused.
