bcm43xx wireless drivers.



Has anyone managed to get a BCM4306 wifi card working with rawhide? I've been trying for quite a while, and with just about every firmware version I can locate but still not had any luck.

With the latest kernel (2.6.17-1.2617.2.1.fc6), I don't even seem to get a list of AP's that are around. From a quick google, it looks as though the bcm43xx driver might be a fair bit out of the actual bcm43xx development - as there seems to be a patch back in July that *may* fix this IRQ issue.

dmesg shows the following:

Is anyone successfully using this card? Mine is in a Dell Inspiron 8600 laptop.
