aha! Thanks. Bad news (for me). I assume that the line:
00:09.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM94306 802.11g (rev 02)
means I have a Broadcom wireless card in there somewhere. Unfortunately the
says that it's unsupported. :-(
So I will need to try this ndis wrapper stuff I guess. Or ditch my laptop and
get one with "supported" hardware.
