Dont use the "b43" in the put location. B43cutter does that automaticly. Go into lib/firmware/b43 and drag the b43 folder out to the lib/firmware folder.

Hello tnrooster

The usual Fedora processes don't involve the use of sudo. It's not that you can't use it if you wish to set it up, it's just contrary to the Fedora way of doing things. It also means that your experiences may not be the same as the majority of Fedora users.

In Fedora you would issue the command:

Code:
su -
to obtain full root authority.

Then you would either cd into the folder containing the software to be cut, in this case 'wl_apsta_mimo.o' or use the full path to the file in the cutting command.

Code:
b43-fwcutter -w /lib/firmware /home/bbfuller/boxroom/broadcom-wl-4.150.10.5/driver/wl_apsta_mimo.o
as a possible scenario.

That creates a directory off /lib/firmware called b43, the cut firmware is placed in there and there is no need to drag it anywhere

Thumbs up Resolved!

I reinstalled, then followed the instructions at http://linuxwireless.org/en/users/Drivers/b43 without adding anything not specified in the instructions, and now it works!

Thanks again.

Hello tomrue

Just for my information, did you get the card to work on Fedora as it was installed off disc or did you update it first?
