nidswrapper and broadcom driver issue.


i have just installed fedora on my computer and tring to enable my wireless Broadcom Corporation BCM94311MCG using nidswrapper. The problem is that i need a driver and the card is not listed as one of the supported cards on the nidswapper website. i'm running vista as a second OS on my computer, so i can't get the drivers from there

so.. is it anyone who knows where i can get a driver for the "Broadcom Corporation BCM94311MCG" wireless card? or someone who have installed this card with nidswapper?

thanks for all answers and help

Look at the output of "lspci -v" and "lspci -n" to determine the ID code of the device. That may help in a search. Also check the README and INSTALL files installed with ndiswrapper. There may be links there. You also have to download either a 32bit or 64 bit driver version depending on what you are running.

yeah, i did do the "lspci -v". But isn't "Broadcom Corporation BCM94311MC" the ID code of the wireless card?

there where a link in the INSTALL file to drivers you could downlaod fra NDISwrapper.net,but my card wasn't listet there.

The device ID is a 4 digit code that is the manufacture identification. This is listed in the '/usr/share/pci.ids' file. You can update the pci.ids.
