I’m trying to make my wireless BCM4328 working, but with no success. According to
Broadcom.com - 802.11 Linux STA driver
the hybrid driver is no good for this hardware.
Here are some details:
gdzie@kmbizi133gd-lap:~> /sbin/lspci -nnv | grep 14e4
09:00.0 Ethernet controller : Broadcom Corporation NetLink BCM5906M Fast Ethernet PCI Express [14e4:1713] (rev 02)
0c:00.0 Network controller : Broadcom Corporation BCM4328 802.11a/b/g/n [14e4:4328] (rev 03)
Please help the newbie …
And if you would search a little more closely in the forum, you would find links to ready made RPM packages.
Thanks for your help, Akoellh. That’s what I figured out about my system:
gdzie@kmbizi133gd-lap:~> uname -r
gdzie@kmbizi133gd-lap:~> cat /etc/SuSE-release
openSUSE 11.1 (x86_64)
VERSION = 11.1
Then I browsed your repository
Index of /repositories/home:/Akoellh/openSUSE_11.1/x86_64
and I have no idea which package do I need.
Can you help me a little bit more?
Search for 4328, it will be among the first few hits.
(And no, I don’t have those drivers in my repo, I removed them a few months ago.)
So should I look for a different repo? OK, I’ll try. Or, maybe you could help me otherwise?
Thanks, anyway. I’m still learning.
I installed the broadcom-wl package from
PackMan :: Package details for broadcom-wl
Then I uninstalled ndiswrapper and removed all relevant folders. I should probably install the new driver? What are the next steps? Sorry to keep asking, but I am really confused.
