Re: Problem with F11 and Broadcom b43 wireless



I never got a reply to this query. I tried everything I could think of with Network Manager to get it to work with no success. I finally reverted to Fedora 10. I installed the exact same drivers in F10 that I tried in F11 with b43-fwcutter. The wireless has never disconnected itself in F10. So I guess I'll forgo F11 on my laptop and hope that F12 works better.

for Fedora 10 as described at this link:
http://www.linuxwireless.org/en/users/Drivers/b43. The wireless makes a
connection and works for awhile. Then it seems to lose the connection.
Network Manager throws up the dialog asking for all the basic wireless
info including password key. However, it never seems to make the
connection again, no matter how many times I press the OK button and
watch the Network Manager icon spin for a minute or so. I do not have
this problem with Fedora 10. The wireless stays connected. Anyone know
if I'm doing something wrong in Network Manager or if there is a problem
in Fedora 11?

Thanks!
