Driver for wireless card


Where do I get the driver for installing my wireless card- BCM4310 (Broadcom Corporation) in Centos05? I'm not able to find one.

Have a look here. http://linuxwireless.org/en/users/Drivers/b43 from what it looks like you may need to use the b43 driver. To check and see if this driver is installed just do the following as root
Code:
find / -name "b43*"
this will search your entire computer for the b43 module.
