    Default wifi device is not detecting in "network settings"

    Hi,

    I have installed suse 13.1 on vaio f15318. I see no wifi device in "network settings".

    After running "lspci -nnk" I see:

    02:00.0 Network controller[0280] : broadcom corporation BCM43142 802.11b/g/n [14e4:4365] (rev 01)
    Subsystem: Foxcomm International inc. Device [105b:e071]
    kernel driver in use : bcma-pci-bridge
    kernel modules: bcma


    Could anyone tell how to make wifi up?

    Regards,
    Prav

    Try to install the broadcom-wl driver from Packman:
    PackMan :: Informationen zum Paket broadcom-wl

    Please note, that you need the package "broadcom-wl" _and_ one of the "broadcom-wl-kmp-*" packages depending on which kernel you use (most likely "broadcom-wl-kmp-desktop", check with "uname -a").
