Broadcom BCM4318 issues

Hi, I’m a really new person to Linux (like I bought a Mac because it was pretty kind of guy) and I’m trying to get the wireless figured out. I’ve installed new drivers and when I go to connect the MAC address shows up on the router but only for a few seconds and then disappears and I can’t access wifi. I’ve even attempted opening up the router and still can’t connect. What am I missing here? I can use the wireless card to scan for networks and it sees them all, just can’t get in. Thanks.

There are a lot of threads about getting the broadcoms to work.
If you think that your NIC is unique for some reason, it would definitely help if you provided some information.
There are sticky posts here for a reason. Read them. Perform the commands they tell you to. Try to see for yourself any errors, etc.
Post relevant output from the commands here.
Leave out any irrelevant information that could potentially confuse us. (Like the fact that you’re a mac user, because you’re obviously using Linux now.)

Open Konsole and type it as root:

lsmod | grep “b43|ssb|wl”
rmmod b43
rmmod ssb
zypper remove b43-fwcutter
echo “blacklist ssb” >> /etc/modprobe.d/50-blacklist.conf
echo “blacklist bcm43xx” >> /etc/modprobe.d/50-blacklist.confecho “blacklist b43” >> /etc/modprobe.d/50-blacklist.confecho “blacklist ndiswrapper” >> /etc/modprobe.d/50-blacklist.conf
zypper in broadcom-wl broadcom-wl-kmp-desktop
modprobe wl
