I've just updated (clean new install) my old laptop to Leap 42.3 and I've
installed the Broadcom firmware files using the command
install_bcm43xx_firmware. After that the wifi was working. But on startup of
the system there will be always an error message that the firmware file was not
found. When I load the driver manually (modprobe -r b43 && modprobe b43) the
wifi will come up. As workaround I've put these commands into the file
