Hi, i have a problem setting up my wireless card (BCM4312 a/b/g).
running ifconfig wlan0 up gives:couldnt load b43/ucode13.fw (sorry for no precise output but i am unable to check it now. can update later if indispensable).
i have emerged b43-firmware (without errors, having unmasked necessary packets).
lsmod shows ssb and b43 are active.
file ucode13.fw DOES exist in /lib/firmware/b43 -> this dir looks as it should look like (went through lots of topics connected with my problem).
i have also emerged broadcom-sta and wireless_tools.
kernel is probably configured correcly, i have spent much time trying to figure it out myself so found some solutions including reconfiguring kernel.
ifconfig -a shows wlan0 as a proper adapter.

No idea what else i should post. Thank you in advance. Im not linux veteran so feel free to ask for complete output from commands i mentioned (or any other:) ).

That's the best thing that you can do when installing Gentoo, using a wired connection.
