I just got an Acer Aspire One and threw Fedora 15 Alpha on it. This
is a good thing as, according to
linuxwireless.org/en/users/drivers/brcm80211 says that my wifi chip is
in the 2.6.38 kernel. That page tells me to d/l some firmware files
to a specific directory. I went there and those files are already
there. But I don't have any wireless configured.
The system only sees em1 and lo if I do an iwconfig and em1 is the ethernet.
lspci -vnn | grep 14e4
02:00.0 Network controller : Broadcom Corporation BCM4313
802.11b/g LP-PHY [14e4:4727] (rev 01)
Subsystem: Broadcom Corporation Device [14e4:0510]
so the system can see the hardware. Why is it not loading? Is there
another step I'm missing?
