Getting Broadcom wifi to work
I have a HP Pavilion Dv1000 with a broadcom chipset internal wifi, on Knoppix 3.9.
I have been using ndiswrapper and the drivers from hp's website. (as the ndiswrapper install docs say to.)
The driver is bcmwl5 and it loads fine. ndiswrapper -l displays bcmwl5 loaded, hardware found.
After I modprobe ndiswrapper dmesg says that ndiswrapper was loaded. However I do not see
in the dmesg as the ndiswrapper installation guide says I should.
ndiswrapper: driver ''driver1'' added
I then do iwconfig and it says no wireless extentions found.
Hm I really do not know what else to do to get this to work. Can someone please help me out.
Thanks in advance!
