Re: Determining Packages for a working BCM4311 Wireless Card

2009/12/31 Randy Yates <yates ieee org>
I have a laptop with a working bcm4311 wireless adaptor, but I don't
know which packages were installed to get it working. Any ideas on
how to determine this? Fedora 11.

it is likely that the module used by your card is the b43 one, provided by the kernel.
But this module requires also a firmware.
Anyway I think that the proprietary module wl supports also 4311 chipsets. Did you installed some third-party drivers?
What return the following commands ?
  lsmod | egrep "b43|wl"
  rpm -qa \*kmod\* \*firmware
  lspci -k
