Please post the output of /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist and ifconfig -a as root.Also,have a look here http://rpmfind.net/linux/rpm2html/se...y=b43-fwcutter,because that would probably solve the problem.
Choose the right package for you,if you're not sure,post the output of uname -a

Do I need to be in the same directory and run b43-fwcutter as root?

Go to http://mirror2.openwrt.org/sources/b...0.10.5.tar.bz2 and download the package,become root and cd to directory where you downloaded the file.Then do;
Code:
tar xjf broadcom-wl-4.150.10.5.tar.bz2
That unpacks the file archive you downloaded and will create you a new directory where you are working called 'broadcom-wl-4.150.10.5'.

cd into that directory and then the 'driver' directory within that and use the command:
Code:
b43-fwcutter -w /lib/firmware wl_apsta_mimo.o
Reboot.You should have then wireless connection/s listed in the Network manager.

That all looks good.

So, did you reboot? Do you have a wireless connection?

By the way, you didn't see the blacklist file because you neglected the cat command before the file name, so the system said "What??? How can I run a data file? No way!" and gave up. (cat, short for "concatenate," types the contents of it's argument files, in order, to the standard output.)

I did reboot, a few times. Still no wireless connection. When I enter the setup there is still no device for wireless recognized by Fedora 10.
I also go into network configuration and added a new wireless device and gave me an error "Device eth1 does not seem to be present, delaying initialization."

What does a dmesg | grep -i b43 and another dmesg | grep -i eth show?

(By the way, your post would be much easier to read if you put "code" tags around the stuff you paste. I.e., [߲code] before and [߲/code] after the paste.)

It looks like there is a bug in b43,that's why it's showing eth1 and not wlan0,
Quote:
So far the situation is that Network Manager Applet displays 2 different interfaces for the wi-fi card : one is eth1 (and both are shown as WIRED apparently...).
The temporary solution is (again, published on bcm43xx mailing list):
1. go to /etc/udev/rules.d
2. sudo mcedit 70-persistent-net.rules
3. comment out the line
# PCI device 0x14e4:0x4318 (bcm43xx)
# SUBSYSTEM==net, DRIVERS==?*, ATTRS{address}==00:0e:9b:bf:af:f4, NAME=eth1 <this line
4. save, exit back to terminal
5. sudo rmmod b43
6. sudo modprobe b43
7. udev will add a line like this to the aforementioned file:
# PCI device 0x14e4:0x4318 (b43-pci-bridge)
SUBSYSTEM==net, ACTION==add, DRIVERS==?*, ATTR{address}==00:0e:9b:bf:af:f4&quot;, ATTR{type}==1, NAME=wlan0
Now the Network Manager shows the wlan0 interface correctly as wireless adaptor.
Note that this is posted on launchpad and I'm not using Fedora at the moment,but maybe using gedit instead of mcedit will work,and as root,without sudo.I'm not sure if the /etc/udev/rules.d is the right directory.
Anyway,if you do this successfully,when you want to add a new device,
Quote:
After it's been created click on Edit from the menu and do:
--In the General tab make sure the following are enabled:
Controlled by NetworkManager
Activate device when computer starts
Allow users to enable and disable the device
Enable IPv6 configuration for this interface
Automatically obtain IP address settings with: dhcp
Automatically obtain DNS information from provider
--In the Hardware device tab make sure:
Hardware is set to wlan0 (b43)
Device alias number is unchecked
Bind to MAC address is checked
--In the Wireless Settings tab make sure:
Mode is set to auto
Network name (SSID) is set to &quot;auto&quot;
Channel is set to 1
Transmit rate is set to Auto
Maybe for you it would be better to try this with ndiswrapper,but then you'll have to remove b43 & fwcutter.To do so,enable rpmfusion repo,
Code:
su -c 'rpm -Uvh http://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/fedora/rpmfusion-free-release-stable.noarch.rpm http://download1.rpmfusion.org/nonfree/fedora/rpmfusion-nonfree-release-stable.noarch.rpm'
then follow this guide;

Ndiswrapper drivers howto

Some drivers which are not released for linux will require Ndiswrapper to function. Bcm43xx driver may have been limited to 11Mbs using Ndiswrapper increases the speed.
You will need to install the RPM Fusion.
  • Install Ndiswrapper
su -c 'yum -y install kmod-ndiswrapper'
  • Make a directory to hold your driver.
su -c 'mkdir /ndiswrapper_drivers'
  • Log in as root
su --login
  • Now you will either need to get the drivers from your windows driver disk or download the drivers needed for your network card from the Ndiswrapper Wiki
cp netbc564.inf /ndiswrapper_drivers/
cp bcmwl564.sys /ndiswrapper_drivers/
  • Install the drivers
ndiswrapper -i netbc564.inf
  • The output should show the following
Installing netbc564
Forcing parameter IBSSGMode|0 to IBSSGMode|2
  • Verify that the drivers are loaded
ndiswrapper -l
  • The output should show
Installed drivers:
netbc564 driver present, hardware present
  • Load the kernel module
modprobe ndiswrapper
  • If everything loads and works add ndiswrapper to your modprobe.conf file. Then exit from root.
ndiswrapper -ma
echo alias wlan0 ndiswrapper >> /etc/modprobe.conf
exit
  • Configure your network
System -> Administration -> Network
or
su -c 'system-config-network'
  • The BCM4318 driver can be downloaded from the following links. Thanks go to Fedora Solved for hosting them.
BCM4318 using Ndiswrapper
There have been issues with bcm43xx actually working with the bcm4318 broadcom device. A solution is to use ndiswrapper, however, the bc43xx bits need to be removed to avoid conflicts.

I have been away from my laptop for some time. When I get a chance I will look into what you said.

Hello again Alan,

I hope you are still out there. I re-installed Fedora and Im back at square one. I thought that by installing Fedora 10 from a DVD than from a Live CD would alleviate the wireless problem that I was having, it did not. Hope you can still help.

thanks.

Ok,lets try from the begining.Post the output of:
Code:
uname -a
and
Code:
dmesg|grep b43
and
Code:
lspci -v
Put the output in the code tags which you can find in the window when you reply.
