My Debian~unstable-sid using linux-siduction-3.6 works well with Broadcom proprietary wl.ko module. I have tested their linux/.config - but doesnt work.

Can someone help howto wl.ko with linux-3.6.0 ?

I found linux-3.6 working with wl.ko when I compile the "wext" interface instead of the modern nl80211, beause the old wext interface kept all stable in linux-3.6.0. But I have an old mac mini. Newer broadcom chips might not work with wext.
(My debian compiled wext automatically, but more because of a sloppy dkms Makefile interface)
