Thumbs up Broadcom 4318 airforce wlan card driver for suse 10/amd 64 HP laptop


I have an HP Pavilon zv6100 laptop and am dueling booting with Windows xp and Suse ver 10 64 bit. The laptop contains a Broadcom airforce Wlan card 4318. niether HP or Broadcom provide a linux driver for the card. Works great on the windows side but I really need it to work on the Suse side.
I'm new to linux and really love it so any help in making the wireless card work in suse would be greatly appreciated. Frank

If there's no linux driver, then you have 2 options (just like me, since I have an HP ze5470 laptop - broadcom wireless card).

1.) Do some research on ndiswrapper (which uses your windows broadcom .sys and .inf files) for free and can be difficult for a newbie to setup.

2.) go to www.linuxant.com and download the trial for 30 days, if you get it working then spend the $20 for a lifetime key which is specific to that laptop. This also uses your windows .inf and .sys drivers.
