Hi,

I am trying to make my wireless card work.

So my wireless card is 14e4432b bcm4322, and I am currently trying with b43 drivers.

I have checked from this site http://kmuto.jp/debian/hcl/index.rhtmlx, that it can work with b43 drivers.

The output of lsmod is

Code:
Module                  Size  Used by
applesmc               11447  0
nvidia               9369090  30
b43                   158104  0
bcma                   25918  1 b43
coretemp                5867  0


Output of lspci -vvn | grep b43 -A7

Code:
   Kernel driver in use: b43-pci-bridge

And of course, output of iwconfig

sit0      no wireless extensions.

enp0s10   no wireless extensions.


I have installed, as instructed at the wiki, the b43-fimware

Finally I'm using the kernel
Output of uname -r

Code:
3.7.10-gentoo


I am kind of stuck here, so any ideas?

Thanks a lot!

with modinfo you can find out whether the b43 module sports the correct PCI vendor/device ID. If not, you are possibly missing CONFIG_BCMA_HOST_PCI in your kernel. If yes, then dmesg will tell what is wrong when you load the module.

Well, I made it work, earlier today, thanks to the first reply.
Thanks a lot!

Thing is the wireless is quite unstable (sometimes really slow, sometimes disconnecting...)

Maybe I should try broadcom sta drivers again.
The problem with them was that when I installed them, i had my wireless interface identified but there was an extra line about an error when i ran ifconfig -a. So I unistalled them. Maybe I should search a little more on that.
