I guess you havent added an interface yet.
click on new
select wireless connection
select the boradcom card being displayed there
configure your connection
and finally click on apply.
look at the device name being displayed there.
now if you reach here tell me the device name.
it should be something like eth0 or something
on my panasonic cf-50 laptop CF7 system I followed the installation instructions for the broadcom card (FC7 drivers). However, I had to disable the networkManager as booting up would hang (as well as other problems all of which disappeared when the NM was disabled).
I also cannot see the card listed under hardward when trying to use the network configure gui.
# lspci (sees the broadcom card)
# iwconfig (sees no wireless)
My question is: How to get the broadcom hardware to show up in the network configurator?
I tried doing the following
# /sbin/depmod -a
# /sbin/modprobe bcm43xx
but nothing changed
Any info would be appreciated
Thanks in advance
