HP 625 problems configuring the wireless network
I've bought a HP 625 laptop that has a Broadcom 4313 wireless adapter (it has draft n capabilities) and I'm trying to get the wireless network to run in Gentoo linux.
I connect to the Internet through a Linksys E2000 router.
In windows the wireless connection works perfectly. In Gentoo on the other hand, I'm unable to connect to the router.
I'm using the wl driver (broadcom-sta) and I'm trying to use wicd for wireless network connections. I have installed wpa_supplicant and wireless-tools also. iwconfig reports that the tx power for the card is off.
I've tried to enable it by running iwconfig eth1 txpower on, but it doesn't do anything (I think the laptop has a hardware rf kill switch). The tx power is still off.
Also the laptop has a WiFi switch (the button has a led that changes its color when the RF antenna is deactivated/activated - orange/blue) on the keyboard and in gentoo when I press the button the led stays orange.
Can somebody help me?
