Obviously not the one you used. ;-)

You need to use a version 3 firmware and the new b43-fwcutter (not
bcm43xx-fwcutter).

The b43-fwcutter-011-3.fc9 firmware is what I have installed, with the b43legacy driver.






FC10 / KDE
I can't get a Broadcom 4306 wireless card working.

lsmod shows a b43legacy driver loading.

The firmware installed, b43-fwcutter-011-3.fc9.i386

This website shows different drivers , but I'm confused about which firmware is correct. http://linuxwireless.org/en/users/Dr...devicefirmware <http://linuxwireless.org/en/users/Driversb43#devicefirmware>
