    Broadcom card works but only with command

    Hi,

    I've got my Broadcom 4311 card working, but only if I type

    Code:
    sudo modprobe b43
    in the terminal.

    I've been bouncing around trying all the alternatives I've seen here and elsewhere, and got that close. Although I wrote a script to get the wireless working (a complete one line masterpiece ), I obviously have to enter my password.

    Am I getting conflicts with other drivers? Should I remove them?

    Oh yeah, how do I do that?

    Thanks,
    Ken

    Forgot to add that it stops working as soon as I reboot, then restarts once I run that command.

    Does look very similar, doesn't it?

    If you follow the steps in this page it will add the module at startup for you.
