Broadcom Wifi Problems


I have a Hp Pavilion zv6000 laptop with a broadcom wifi card built in. I heard somewhere that i need ndis wrapper i found this in yast but dont have a clue what to do from there i also have the windows drivers for the wifi card. I am running Open Suse 10.0 i am a linux newbie so please try and keep things simple.

There are some instructions in the SUSE support database. Haven't tried them, but I see no reason why it shouldn't work.

Hope you don't mind a little reading and some work because it will work but you may run into a few snags.First I would install the ndiswrapper that came with suse first because it will be easier.They may tell you here or at least you will get the idea, I don't use suse so I don't want to say something stupid;
Next it is on to ndiswrapper;
I have the same thing a broadcom mine says it is a 4318 but I use a 4306 driver. I can help you with that stuff but first get your feet wet and if you run into a snag or don't understand something , ask away - Good Luck

See the instructions at, (find the susemandriva.html), before following ndiswrapper instructions to "Install Windows Driver".

Have to do it this way because the forum won't let me post URL's.
