  at the risk of belabouring this issue (and i'm sure it's way too

wireless working on f7 (and, additionally, f8t1) on my laptop which
has a broadcom 4318 chip.

ndiswrapper is the way to go if you have a 4318. My laptop is a year old and has seen FCs 5-7 and only with FC7 has it been working. Is your laptop 64bit? If so, keep in mind that you need to use the 64bit version of the broadcom drivers (bcmwl564.inf). 32bit won't work.

Any link on where to download the driver? I don't seem to find it, or if I find it, it is a windows executable. :-(
