I think it shows that my wireless card is installed successfully but I
can not still connect to a network...
Broadcom support is not quite fully working yet :-(


It may not be fully working but the bcm43xx does, it is also in the
Linksys WPC54G which works quite well in my laptop. The OP needs to
extract the drivers from the windows .sys file and add them
to /lib/firmware.

I have .sys driver files for Windows. How can I use thin in OpenSuse without ndiswrapper?
