    No wireless with Broadcom 4312???

    Hi,

    After some serious trouble with Plasma, I decided to re-install 9.10. When booting up, I noticed that the wireless indicator light stayed on orange which usually means that the driver is not loaded.
    I have a Broadcom 4312 in a HP Pavilion dv6. I checked the repository but no driver shows up. I seem to remember that it used to be there.
    Can someone point me to it? Or am I mistaken and do I need to install the vendor driver from the Broadcom site?
    Help is greatly appreciated.
    Cheers.

    I've added the output of lspci and dmesg | gre b43

    Hi, I'm not a moderator but you might check out the information at this site. I have a Broadcom 4306/3 that gave me the same problem.

    You might check out this site

    about half way down in the heading
    "Installing b43/STA hybrib drivers" Yes, they misspelled it!

    Thank you both very much for your replies! It works now!.
    It is what confusing though: lspci shows a Broadcom 4312, but lspci -vnn | grep 14e4 shows that I have a 4318

    TXS again.
