That script DOES NOT install drivers. As its name suggests, that installs
firmware! Drivers run in the main CPU - firmware runs in the CPU embedded in the
card.

What led you to think that you needed BCM43xx firmware? I am aware of several
drivers that lock up the computer, but b43 is not one of them.

Sorry i dont know mutch(obviously) about my netbook, im just a gamer in the opensuse world.

As the stickies in this Forum would tell you if you had read them, we need to
know the PCI or USB ID’s of your device. As it probably is connected to the PCI
bus, please post the output of

/sbin/lspci -nnv | grep 14e4

If that produces no output, then you do not have a Broadcom device and your
firmware installation did nothing. In that case, post the output of

/sbin/lspci

and we can figure out where to go from there.

sorry it took so long but here is the output you wanted
