Problems with bcm4306...



Hi,

I'm using kernel 2.6.17-rc3 with wl_apsta.o firmware (also tried AppleAirport2)
on  a 15" Powerbook G4 (PowerBook5,6) for my Broadcom 4306 chip.
I tried this using 54M & 11M rates on both WEP-protected and
unprotected networks and I always get the same result:

$ sudo ifconfig eth2 up
$ sudo iwlist eth2 scan
eth2      Scan completed :

$ sudo iwlist eth2 scan (interface goes down)
eth2      Interface doesn't support scanning : No such device

Any help is appreciated...
Thanks
