Hi,

I'm trying to get my wireless connection established on my laptop. I've gone through several of the threads regarding this topic, but I can't seem to get it fixed (or maybe I'm just one step away). Please reference the following outputs. Thanks!

Hi jrb,

This appears to be your "WiFi critter:"

02:03.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4306 802.11b/g Wireless LAN Controller (rev 02)

I believe that the 4306 is the older "legacy" "b43" Broadcom, but don't quote me on that (do some research on "Broadcom 4306 linux driver")

I was just helping someone with a Broadcom "4311," and I believe that has the same "STA" fix that yours needs (and my HP with Broadcom 4321AG also needs).

Corporate laziness/efficiency can be a beautiful thing at times.;)
