    Broadcom Corporation BCM4328


    Newbie here. I'm not sure if this is a dumb question or not but here goes. I have been trying out some different versions of linux and I like what I see but there seems to be a lot of issues with my wireless card. I would like to know if anyone has advice on which version may work best with the BCM4328 wireless adapter?

    The bcm4328 requires a non-free driver released by Broadcom. So there is no distro that will work out of the box.

    However, it's not too difficult in any distro to get it installed if you have a wired connection.

    That info will confirm the chipset of the wireless card, but assuming it is the bcm4328, there is no way around the broadcom-wl driver.
