Hi all,

Just to share a personal experience, with the original
Broadcom driver from SUSE "b44", the ethernet card is
able to transmit but not receive. However with the
latest driver version 3.0.7 from Broadcom, it works
perfectly. Interestingly, the same driver does not
work on Fedora Core 2. The caveat is that when
compiling the driver, specify the kernel version:
"make BCM_KVER=2.6". It is not necessary to prepare
the kernel source tree as described in the REAME.TXT,
although it is of course necessary to install the
kernel source RPM.

Hope this helps whoever is looking for an answer,
Law
