I have the Packman broadcom wireless drivers Code: broadcom-wl-5.60.48.36-7.pm.13.1.x86_64 broadcom-wl-kmp-default-5.60.48.36_2.6.31.12_0.1-7.pm.13.1.x86_64 Code: uname -a Linux linux-g5gi 2.6.31.12-0.1-default #1 SMP 2010-01-27 08:20:11 +0100 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux Am I correct in thinking the driver shown above in the lspci output (wl) is NOT correct and it should be (b43)? Or something like that? I had it working using Network Manager, DHCP and WPA Now it tries and fails to connect If I add my IP settings manually it connects to my router and pings to it fine, but NOT the outside world. No settings have changed - but there have been updates of course. Thanks for advices:) (Distributions)
