Re: Installing a Broadcom 4312 rev 02 wifi card
I have this card in an HP 8000dv and it has never worked without
ndiswrapper. That doesn't even work anymore. I don't know if the XP
drivers were updated or not but b43-fwcutter always told me the firmware
wasn't correct now no matter which driver I chose just before I finally
dumped the card.
It was a lousy card to begin with. Reception was very poor even using
ndiswrapper and it would drop the connection at least once an hour.
Every usb wifi card I tried reported far better signal strength from the
same position and so did the Intel mini-pci cards. None of them dropped
connections either. My advice, if you have the money to spend, is just
get another card such as one of the intel mini-pci cards that fit into
the same slot in the motherboard. They work much better and report much
better signal strength.
I know some people got 4312 card to work, but in my hardware
configuration it never did work right. With ndiswrapper I couldn't use
any security and with the open source driver it just plain old didn't
work at all.
