    Default Broadcom BCM43228 on Acer Aspire One 725

    Completely new to openSUSE with a Leap 42.3 x86_64 LXDE install on an Acer Aspire One 725. I tried following the Broadcom wireless sticky, but it didn't work. Here is some relevant output:

    Code:
    $ sudo lspci -nn -d 14e4
    02:00.0 Network controller [0280]: Broadcom Corporation BCM43228 802.11a/b/g/n [14e4:4359]
    Code:

    Anyone know how to get this working. I think that I need a driver called "wl", according to the website refered to in dmesg.

    Hi Sauerland. Yes, which is why I tried the Broadcom sticky solution (which doesn't work for me), and why I posted the output that I did. As I am new to openSUSE, I am unsure as to the driver/blob/firmware, not as to what my hardware or system are.

    Three sets of updates later, it seems to be working now. I'll mark this as solved.
