Unhappy Broadcom 4401 driver with 2.6.6 kernel


Hi!

Please can offer me some advice with this one! I was able to use the Broadcom 4401 NIC on my motherboard with no problems under kernels 2.4.20 and 2.4.26, however I've now upgraded to 2.6.6 and its not working.

I found the b44 driver from amongst the list of EXPERIMENTAL options whilst configuring the kernel and have managed to insert it with modprobe, I believe. My resolv.conf and /etc/hosts file are the same ones which work for 2.4.26 so I assume they're fine too.

Any ideas?!

Here's the list of debug information...
