Xfce Edition - Broadcom BCM4313 wireless

Postby cezve on Fri Jan 13, 2012 5:24 am

I install LXE edition to Lenovo S10 netbook. After I upgrade the system I have 3.0.0-1-486 i686 kernel.
I follow the broadcom link, but wireless card doesn't work;

Everything looks good but it doesn't work.
Are there any ideas?

A problem with similar Broadcom device has been solved in another thread: viewtopic.php?f=194&t=86494

The device is not exactly the same, but the driver apparently is, so maybe this will help.
And there's also a note that...
One just has to make sure NOT to install the Broadcom STA drivers- at least not with this wifi card
