    wireless problem sabayon 3.4f


    hi i just installed my new sabayon about last week, it works perfect. however there is one problem. i don't think it has a driver for my wireless card. how do i go about installing and finding what driver i need? is that really the problem? i'm not sure what specifics to post and i have no idea how to check most of the specs on my computer.

    Post the output of "lspci".
    You will need to be root for the command to work.

    That will list all the hardware on your system.

    Broadcom Corperation BCM4306 802.11b/g Wireless LAN Controller (rev02)

    was pretty sure that's what we are looking for. let me know if you need all of the results that came up after that command.

    No, that was all that was needed.
    Do

    Code:
    modprobe bcm43xx
    Then you can do "net-setup eth0" or "net-setup eth1" whichever is correct.
