Re: b43 problem.



Omri,

If you cannot access to the access point or cannot see it, try update the kernel "yum update kernel*" , then install these two packages broadcom-wl kmod-wl.

This is useful link:
http://www.fedoraguide.info/index.php?title=Fedora10#Broadcom_b43_.28Official_driver.21.21.21.29

I hope that help you.

Best Regards,
Waleed Harbi

Hi, all. I'm running FC 10 on a Lenovo 3000 C100 laptop
with a Broadcomm 4318 wireless driver. A problem developed today
that shows as follows in dmesg:

This happens when I try to bring the interface up first time after booting.

That is, it finds the local network, associates with the
access point, and tries DHCP, and then instantly drops out.

I'm wondering if it's the chip dying, since Google doesn't show any other
cases like this.

So, anyhow, here are the kernel details:

Linux localhost.localdomain 2.6.27.25-170.2.72.fc10.i686 #1 SMP Sun Jun 21 19:03:24 EDT 2009 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux

Anyone seen anything like this? Thanks for your attention.
