    Uninstall ndiswrapper and use the native driver. At the moment, brcm80211 is not
    perfect, but it is a lot better than the Windows driver. In fact, ndiswrapper
    should only be used for those devices for which no Linux driver is available.


    You will need to install the kernel-firmware package using zy6pper or YaST.

    I have an Asus EeePC 1015PN with a Broadcom Corporation BCM4313 802.11b/g/n Wireless LAN Controller [14e4:4727].

    On openSuse 11.4 it worked out of the box for me. Like larry said it uses the brcm80211 driver. I haven't seen any issues with it so far. I use WPA2 for the encryption. It's been a rock solid connection.

    Everything else on the netbook works also as far as I can tell.

    Good luck.

    Does one show up with '/usr/sbin/iwconfig'?

    Does 'dmesg' have anything to say about your device and firmware? Note: I DID
    NOT ASK FOR YOU TO POST THE DMESG OUTPUT!!!!!!

    What does 'sudo /usr/sbin/iwlist scan' say?

    Wht does '/usr/sbin/rfkill list' say?

    Thumbs up I have 4520s and my wireless is working great

    hp probook 4520s brcm4313

    Did you install this package along with the others?
    b43-firmware
    Hope that fixes it for you, also let me know how your bluetooth is working.
