    Unloading and reloading kernel module

    Hi all,

    I got this wireless card working in a laptop:

    Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4311 802.11b/g WLAN (rev 01)

    When I boot the system, all the modules that need to be loaded are there. However, the wireless doesn't start working until I

    Code:
    #modprobe -r b43
    #modprobe b43
    On one occasion I ran lsmod before and after these commands, and found the list of loaded modules was the same. So, I'm really not sure what is changing when I remove and reinsert b43. Any ideas on what to look for? Ideally I would like to setup the kernel to load the right modules in the first place. However, I wouldn't be too opposed to the hackish solution of running the modprobe commands in a startup script. What script would be appropriate for this?

    ...bump. Is there any more information I should provide?
