  1. #1

    Default LEAP 42.3 Broadcom Corporation BCM4311 802.11b/g WLAN didn`t work ;(

    I tested once again:
    Step-1:
    fresh NetworkInstall Leap42.3 + zypper up + reboot

    Step2
    Code:
    # uname -a
    Linux linux-nczo.suse 4.4.79-19-default #1 SMP Thu Aug 10 20:28:47 UTC 2017 (2dd03e8) x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
    
    # lspci | grep -i bCM43
    10:00.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4311 802.11b/g WLAN (rev 01)
    Step3:
    Code:
    ksr@linux-nczo:~/bin> sudo rfkill unblock  all
    ksr@linux-nczo:~/bin> sudo rfkill list

    eth0      no wireless extensions.
    
    
    ksr@linux-nczo:~/bin> sudo ifconfig wlan0 up
    wlan0: unknown interface: No such device
    Step-4:
    Apply this. "Install package home:dmolkentin:dracut:devel:git / dracut"
    +Reboot - DIDN`t HELP ! ;(

    After this i do: Seps again:
    Step1, Step2, Step3
    Step4 ( new) this: "Broadcom firmware is needed for b43, but I have no network - an easierwork around

    "
    Reboot,
    and DIDN`t HELP ;(
    Code:
    rmmod b43
    modprobe b43
    And have this error:
    Aug 20 17:14:05 linux-nczo.suse kernel: b43-wlan ERROR: Dual-core devices are not supported
    Aug 20 17:14:05 linux-nczo.suse kernel: b43: probe of ssb0:0 failed with error -524
