Azurewave AW-CE123H [Broadcom 4352 WLAN] won't work.


Hi,
I have replaced WLAN+BT Mini PCI-Ex card to Azurewave AW-CE123H based on Broadcom 4352. I have installed Broadcom-sta package from Slackbuilds:
http://slackbuilds.org/repository/14.../broadcom-sta/
Unfortunately card has different MAC address after each reboot and it doesn't work neither in KDE (5.11) nor in CLI. Is there anything else I can do about this card?

Hi:

See this page that frankbell wrote and maybe try installing the b43 firmware and the b43-fwcutter and see if that helps.

If it's not to late return the card for a refund.

If I installed b43-firmware and b43-fwcutter, then nothing happened. I'll try again from scratch.

It doesn't work either. It keeps changing its MAC on every restart, and I am not able to scan for wireless networks. I don't want to spend any time longer on this crap card, so I have ordered new Intel card. However thank you for your help.
