http://forums.fedoraforum.org – Hi everybody. I have a Broadcom Corporation BCM4312 802.11b/g (rev 01) wireless card. I installed these packages: broadcom-wl-5.10.91.9.3-1.fc12.noarch akmod-wl-5.10.91.9.3-3.fc12.6.x86_64 kmod-wl-2.6.31.6-145.fc12.x86_64-5.10.91.9.3-3.fc12.8.x86_64 akmods-0.3.6-3.fc12.noarch kmodtool-1-18.fc11.noarch libmikmod-3.2.0-9.beta2.fc12.x86_64 kmod-wl-2.6.31.5-127.fc12.x86_64-5.10.91.9.3-3.fc12.6.x86_64 uname -a says: Linux boz.alafkhar 2.6.31.6-145.fc12.x86_64 #1 SMP Sat Nov 21 15:57:45 EST 2009 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux and: # lsmod | grep wl wl 1278432 0 lib80211 6436 2 lib80211_crypt_tkip,wl also: # dmesg | grep wl wl: module license 'MIXED/Proprietary' taints kernel. wl 0000:0c:00.0: PCI INT A -> GSI 17 (level, low) -> IRQ 17 wl 0000:0c:00.0: setting latency timer to 64 My networkmanager understands that the card is installed. But it can not find any network. Also iwlist scan gives me no result. I did not have this problem on earlier fedora releases. Recently I upgraded to F12 from F11. I should mention that I have another USB DLink wireless card and when I plug it, everything works fine with that card. I also tested wl_apsta driver using fw-cutter. I did not work neither.
