Re: bcm43xx steps on ndiswrapper



Typo on my part... the files are in /lib/firmware

[root max tmp]#
bcm43xx-fwcutter /home/jdickson/bak/D800_wireless_drivers/bcmwl5.sys
bcm43xx-fwcutter can cut the firmware out
of /home/jdickson/bak/D800_wireless_drivers/bcmwl5.sys

  filename :  bcmwl5.sys
  version  :  3.100.35.1
  MD5      :  da7ca369a1a3593ceac85dec2d267a08

*****: Sorry, it's not posible to extract "bcm43xx_microcode11.fw".
*****: Extracting firmware from an old driver is bad. Choose a more
recent one.
*****: Luckily bcm43xx driver doesn't include microcode11 uploads at the
moment.
*****: But this can be added in the future...
