Hi,

I had some problems setting up the driver, but this problem seems unrelated so i started a new thread

I am using the broadcom-sta package and i get these lines in dmesg

Code:
wl: module license 'MIXED/Proprietary' taints kernel

which i think doesnt matter

Code:
eth0: Broadcom BCM4315 802.11 Hybrid Wireless Controller 5.100.82.112

which i thought meant the device would be there

but ifconfig eth0 says there is no such device

anyone know why this might be?


EDIT
i just noticed this is in the wrong subforum
i dont know how i ended up with it here; (sorry mods)

ifconfig -a?

-a shows all devices regardless of being up or down, since your not connected i imagine your eth0 is down

Feel free to report such things, as the all seeing eye does occasionally decide to blink.
