Yet Another Broadcom Story


I'm using a broadcom 4318, and so far, no luck. I have, however managed to get the firmware files into /lib/firmware. I'm using Ubuntu 8.04. I don't know if the driver has to be activated, or what ever, but I can't manage to get it to work.

I got it working, finally, after countless hours of trying, as simple as it is, I couldn't get it to work, and now I did. Very Happy.

Glad it's good - care to share what needed doing so others can
not only share your joy but follow your example?! :} Ideally
as part of our how-to section?


Cheers,
Tink
