As John Linville suggested, rev 02 of the 4311's are not supported. At 
the moment, the reverse
engineers need to take apart the latest Broadcom driver and write the 
specifications for this
device. Until they find the time, this device will not work with either 
b43 or bcm43xx.



Should I file it? It's not a fedora issue, or is this to keep track of 
upstream issues?
