    Default Broadcom 4353

    Does someone know how to get this chip to work under opensuse 11.1/11.2?

    I only found something in a fedora forum...

    kmod-wl from rpmfusion should work...there is no package in rpmfusion for opensuse...its for fedora ony!

    Default Re: Broadcom 4353

    Ok i fixed it now:

    The Debian wiki, here:

    wl - Debian Wiki

    implies that a device of that particular id is supported by the broadcom-wl driver. (packmans broadcom-wl: PackMan :: Informationen zum Paket broadcom-wl)

    The 4353 part doesn't necessarily reflect the chipset number as this "14e4:4320" for example is the designation of one variant of the 4306 chipset.

    ps: kmod-wl = broadcom-wl

    have fun!

    The only way to know what Broadcom chipset you have is to run the command

    /sbin/lspci -nnv | grep 14e4

    On my computer, this returns

    04:00.0 Network controller [0280]: Broadcom Corporation BCM4312
    802.11b/g [14e4:4315] (rev 01)

    Note that it says it is a BCM4312, but that is not definitive as there
    are 2 different kinds of BCM4312's. The 802.11 b/g variety is a 4315;
    whereas the 802.11/a/b/g form has a PC ID of 4312.

    The scan dosn t work!
    Only "lspci" -> 08:00.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation Device 4353 (rev 01)

    But i have taken information about the Broadcom 4353 chip...

    Supported Devices and Features
    Broadcom 802.11 a/b/g WLAN Broadcom 802.11 b/g WLAN Broadcom 4321AG 802.11 a/b/g/draft-n WiFi Adapter Broadcom 4322AG 802.11 a/b/g/draft-n WiFi Adapter Broadcom 43224AG 802.11 a/b/g/draft-n WiFi Adapter

    Broadcom 4353 is definilty a version of the 4321/22 chip...thats why the packman driver works!

    Thanks for help!

    Thanks for that information.

    The Broadcom driver for 802.11n devices that I am currently reverse
    engineering does not support the 4353. Thus, even when the N PHY is
    supported, that device will probably not be among the devices that
    work. I hope the Broadcom wl driver works for you.
