What path/file did you add the "blocklist bcm43xx" entry to?

Thank you for pointing out my typo. I made the correction to my earlier post.

Rereading some of the earlier posts, I noticed the modprobe "remove" option. Perhaps if blacklisting doesn't prevent the module from loading the remove option will work instead.

I really want to send you guys the warmest "thank you"s I possibly can! PTrenholme, jschiwal, and shess01 thank you for your time and great patience with me.

Unfortunately I'm not as patience as you guys, and after exhausting (in my opinion) all solutions I decided to dump Fedora and give openSUSE 10.2 a try after reading so many good things about it. Believe it or not but the bcm43xx driver worked out of the box in openSUSE.

Thank you!

Hey, I wrote a guide about this which has not only worked for me, but several others too. The directions are wrote so that nearly anybody can understand them, and I provide direct assistance if you run into trouble at a certain step.

Installing the Air Force One Wireless B/G Broadcom 4318 card with Fedora Core 6 - Document Version 0.9.6

Note: Version 1.0.0 of the Document is scheduled for release on March 31st, 2007. 0.9.6 is the Third Release Candidate.
