All,

I have a Dell Inspiron 1525 with a Broadcom Corporation BCM4312
wireless controller (per lspci).

Per http://en.opensuse.org/HCL/Network_Adapters_(Wireless)

What else am I supposed to do?


Try 1-click install from Packman :-)

http://packman.links2linux.org/package/broadcom-wl

see if that works for you

Well that was fun. I happened to have installed the 8 online security
patches and the above 1-click.

I then rebooted. After reboot I did not have a keyboard!!!!

Don't know which did the damage. Since it was a virgin install
previously, I just re-installed 11.1

I'll do the security patches first, then try some of the other options.

Greg
