There is a Debian package for BCM43xx drivers, but you have to install
the right one for your kernel. If the output of "uname -a" is something like
Linux your_hostname 2.6.15-1-k7 ...
then you need to run (as root)
apt-get install bcm43xx-modules-2.6.15-1-k7
Ok, Florian, this is the ACER Aspire 3610  man back to strike...;-)
Ndiswrapper with acer_acpi ended up working fine, I tested it at a
friend's place which catches wireless thru the neighbourhood...;-P
But I try to be `truly Debian' and hence tried to put it all down
Ended up jumping from 2.6.8-2-686 w/ndiswrapper and acer_acpi to
linux-2.6.15-1-686 with bcm43xxx drivers from unstable branch
(I ride a Celeron processor), and played then
'apt-get install bcm43xx-modules-2.6.15-1-686'
Installed flawless :-) Followed the steps you pointed in your last mail.
Well, suddenly wlan0 appears as eth1.
`iwconfig eth1' shows:
eth1 IEEE 802.11b/g ESSID:off/any Nickname:"Broadcom 4318"
Mode:Managed Access Point: Invalid Bit Rate=1 Mb/s
RTS thr:off Fragment thr:off
Link Quality:0 Signal level:0 Noise level:0
Rx invalid nwid:0 Rx invalid crypt:0 Rx invalid frag:0
Tx excessive retries:0 Invalid misc:0 Missed beacon:0
As I told in earlier posts, I've got no wireless router at home.
`iwlist eth1 scan' shows:
eth1 Interface doesn't support scanning : No such device
--MMMMhhh...???? What does this mean?
What am I missing? What opinions on this do you have?
