the bcm43xx modules/ and cards nics that use it need the firmwareSo yours is working, then?? Is this post-hack or pre-hack?? Mine absolutely
in /lib/firmware to work. you can extract it with fwcutter, from teh
windows drivers. however, this , for me is very, very flaky and i just
stick with ndiswrapper, even though its an ugly hack at best.

First, installing kubuntu Flight4 came back w/the wireless card being

After loading the Broadcom driver, bcmwl5.inf/sys files into ndiswrapper
I ran into problems. Iwconfig came back w/no wireless found, and when I
# ifconfig eth0 [IP address]
...and got an error regarding the bcm43xx_microcode.fw being absent. I
tried 'modprobe bcm43xx' and that was no help. I then did a deliberate
# find / -iname bcm43xx_microcode.fw
...and nothing was found.
First, I prefer my wired network card to be eth0 & the wireless to be
wlan0. Past that inconvenience, Breezy loads the drivers w/o any problems
--using the afore-mentioned names-- and I have, on numerous occasions,
used the wireless at the office & the wired at my home office. Dapper
has trouble with this. Should I file a bug report on this, perhaps??
Any suggestions appreciated. :-)
does not work.
