Broadcom card problem...

Your card is not yet listed as workable with the bcm43xx driver packaged with recent kernels, but neither was mine before I tried it.

If a command is not found when you enter it at the shell command line, it is probably because you are not signed in as the root operator or it is not in your path. "su", enter. Provide the root password as requested. Then try your command again.

Go to my thread, for install assistance and if you feel o.k. about it do bcm43xx install.
