Getting my broadcom wireless card to work with rawhide



Hi,

I have a broadcom wireless card in my box. lspci is showing it haapily
as

02:06.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4318 [AirForce One
54g] 802.11g Wireless LAN Controller (rev 02)

and b43 is showing up in lsmod.

I've used b43-fcutter to install the firmware into /lib/firmware/b43 and
have an alias in /etc/modprobe.conf for wlan0

So far so good - the activity light comes on on the card and I'm happy.

My problem comes activating it. /sbin/ifup wlan0 comes up with

Error for wireless request "Set Mode" (8B06) :
SET failed on device wlan0 ; Device or resource busy

It can then not get an IP address. dmesg gives me

b43-phy0 debug: Disabling hardware based encryption for keyidx: 0, mac:
ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff
b43-phy0 debug: Using hardware based encryption for keyidx: 0, mac:
ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff
wlan0: Initial auth_alg=0
wlan0: authenticate with AP 00:1b:2f:44:23:32
wlan0: authenticate with AP 00:1b:2f:44:23:32
wlan0: authenticate with AP 00:1b:2f:44:23:32
wlan0: authentication with AP 00:1b:2f:44:23:32 timed out

How do I get it to work? I'm using the v4 driver

TTFN

Paul
