Thread: 11.4 Cannot Recognize My Wireless Card

  1. #1

    Default 11.4 Cannot Recognize My Wireless Card

    So, I can't get on the Internet at all not even through Ethernet. (It recognized my Ethernet hardware but doesn't connect.) I got the broadcom-wl drivers from Packman and installed those and it still was a no go. I tried to get the drivers straight from Broadcom and those didn't work. I couldn't compile the source code from the Brodcom site because i could not get build installed (got make installed but build just didn't install.)

    Info:

    Card
    BCM4322

    When I enter /sbin/lspci -nnk

    After 3 days (only thing i did those 3 days was try to get this working) I finally got it.

    so I downloaded the broadcom-wl driver rpm's from here: Index of /download/Essentials/openSUSE_11.4/x86_64/

    Then used rpm -i ".rpm" to install

    Rebooted and now all is well.

    Thanks for the help guys
