http://forums.fedoraforum.org – I can't get my Broadcoam BCM4322 to connect to a protected access point. I've tried the drivers from rpmfusion, and tried to build the module with the source+binary package from Broadcom, all with no luck. The failure seems to happen during the WPA negotiation. I haven't tried connecting to an unsecured WiFi access point. When booting this same laptop to Kubuntu 9.04, it can connect to secured, so it is possible under linux. Here's output from lspci, and the tail of the log while KNetworkManager is trying to connect the device. Help appreciated. lspci | grep -i network 00:19.0 Ethernet controller: Intel Corporation 82567LM Gigabit Network Connection (rev 03) 0c:00.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4322 802.11a/b/g/n Wireless LAN Controller (rev 01) tail -F /var/log/messages Jul 14 15:59:12 laptop NetworkManager: <info> Activation (eth1) starting connection 'SeattleHQ' Jul 14 15:59:12 laptop NetworkManager: <info> (eth1): device state change: 3 -> 4 Jul 14 15:59:12 laptop NetworkManager: <info> Activation (eth1) Stage 1 of 5 (Device Prepare) scheduled...
