My OS is Fedora 14 (x64)
First of all i can't get the network manager to recognize my wifi card, though it recognizes my Ethernet card,
while creating a new wifi connection the drop down list shows a device named as Broadcom Tigon 3.
I chkconfig'ed network, wpa_supplicant services, but still when i press the hardware switch on my laptop(Acer Aspire 5742G) only the Bluetooth service is activated.
03:00.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM43225 802.11b/g/n (rev 01)

I downloaded hybrid-portsrc_x86_64-v5_100_82_112.tar from www.broadcom.com/support/802.11/linux_sta.php
and during 'make' encountered following errors
