Broadcom driver does not work
 
I am attempting to enable my wireless interface in Slax Linux, so far, I know the driver I need is brcmsmac, since I have a broadcom card; and this work in Slackware.

The driver is available and does not show any errors when I load it with:

Code:

# modprobe brcmsmac
But no new interface is loaded.

Here is I've tried:

Code:

# lspci | grep Network

03:00.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4313 802.11b/g/n Wireless LAN Controller (rev 01)

# ifconfig -a

eth0: flags=4099<UP,BROADCAST,MULTICAST>  mtu 1500

        TX packets 0  bytes 0 (0.0 B)

Any suggestion is greatly accepted!
