FC7 test 2 - bcm43xx wifi not working



I know its early in the FC7 process but this is just a note to say that the bcm43xx card is not working. It worked in FC6 using both the bcm native driver as well as using ndiswrapper.

When it boots, you can see the message below in /var/log/messages:

Mar  4 17:49:11 localhost kernel: bcm43xx_mac80211: Adding Interface type 2
Mar  4 17:49:11 localhost kernel: bcm43xx_mac80211: Found PHY: Analog 2, Type 2, Revision 2
Mar  4 17:49:11 localhost kernel: bcm43xx_mac80211: Found Radio: Manuf 0x17F, Version 0x2050, Revision 2
Mar  4 17:49:11 localhost kernel: bcm43xx_mac80211: YOUR FIRMWARE IS TOO OLD. Firmware from binary drivers older than version 4.x is unsupported. You must upgrade your firmware files.

Later, if I yank teh card out and the put it back in, you see these messages in teh same log:

Mar  4 18:13:01 localhost kernel: pccard: CardBus card inserted into slot 0
Mar  4 18:13:01 localhost kernel: PCI: Enabling device 0000:03:00.0 (0000 -> 0002)

Mar  4 18:13:01 localhost kernel: bcm43xx_mac80211: Radio turned off

Any ideas?

Thanks!
