From my lspci output I get Broadcom 4313 and 0x14e4:0x4727
It appears that Broadcom supports this card with their Linux STA driver
I guess on that page mine is
4313 2.4 Ghz 0x14e4 0x4727 Dell 1501
even though my notebook is Toshiba.
Then they say that the driver is included with Fedora and Ubuntu but nothing about OpenSuse. Then they go on about compiling the driver myself.
I’m pretty sure the modules required for compiling drivers are not available on a fresh install and without Internet connection.
Is there an easier way to get the driver?
Could someone knowledgeable make some .rpm that I can download on another machine and put on a USB stick? Or do I have to wait until Suse developers get to it?
Or could someone make wl.ko file they are talking about on Broadcome Readme? It looks fairly easy to install the driver, if I knew exactly what to disable/blacklist and what security module to load.
Another thing I got from dmesg, not sure if it’s of any help, was that for this card pci entry that goes like 07:00.0 there’s “support D1 D2”, then “#PME supported from D0 D3hot D3cold” then the next line “#PME disabled”.
I’ve searched this forum but the only time 4313 was mentioned when someone made a mistake with the model number
