wireless driver still doesn’t work

on Ubuntu i used a one megabyte Debian file solved everything and here i can’t :frowning:

Sorry, that I answer now. I had to work…

Which output do you get with:

iwconfig

You would use a debian file here, too? Where do you get error-messages?

You can test it with Packman, too. https://forums.opensuse.org/blogs/caf4926/install-broadcom-drivers-packman-90/
