I've built a test kernel with bcm43xx wireless support, from
Thanks! I updated to rawhide today (yesterday I couldn't boot) and it
appears the the device is visible.
It seems to work, with WEP, if I set the ESSID manually -- but only
Legacy IP [...]
I made it through the fwcutter stuff no problem but I'm a bit unsure as to
where to go from here. At first I tried adding a device with s-c-n but
that seems like it should be unnecessary. Do I need to do this to be able
to use ifup? NetworkManager seems to be a bit broken for me ATM so I've
been playing with iwconfig.
Immediately after boot, iwconfig shows the Airport Extreme device as eth0
but when I actually start up wired networking (with ifup eth0), iwconfig
changes to list the device as "dev#####" where the #s seem to be the device
number. Is this what I should expect? Is putting alias eth1 bcm43xx in
/etc/modprobe.conf all I need to do?
Thanks. I'm very excited about this!
