As I promised, please count on me to test any and all patches you would like me to run or give you root access (ssh -> su-) to my machine or whatever it takes to help getting this card to work. Just ask for it and you'll get it. :)

Best Regards
Gonzalo

I have BCM4321 on my Macbook3,1; and I'm running freeBSD7.2 on it. The following is the output from pciconf -lv.

Code:
none1@pci0:2:0:0:	class=0x028000 card=0x0088106b chip=0x432814e4 rev=0x03 hdr=0x00
    vendor     = 'Broadcom Corporation'
    device     = 'BCM94321KFBG Broadcom 4321AGN 802.11a/b/g/draft-n Wi-Fi Solution'
It seems to me that the bwi driver being talked about here doesn't support my card yet; and 8-CURRENT won't solve my problem either. Any ideas?

yes


at now only through ndis
in the future through bwi
Do we know how long it may be before FreeBSD's bwi driver supports the BCM4321? Is it being actively developed? Can I help contribute with the development or testing?

I've looked high and low for the XP driver which I can convert using ndiswrapper into a .ko. I've tried a few, but they either don't work with my card or crash the kernel. Can anyone please point me to a driver I can use?

Thanks.

Dell 1395 (Broadcom 4310?) WLAN Driver

Hello everyone! Could someone here please help me get my Dell 1395 WLAN card working? (BCM4310 USB Controller I think)

I've looked at some other threads, but can't quite make out what I'm supposed to do. I've successfully made this card work on Linux with ndiswrapper, but I'm not sure how to on BSD.

Thanks in advance,

Jonathan

I attempted to install the XP drivers using ndisulator... But I'm rather confuzzled.

Thanks in advance!

Eh, having some .xinitrc problems currently:

Anyways, the relevant part as I saw it was:

Broadcom 4310 USB Controller, even though it wasn't USB>

I'm sorry for the horrible delay, but due to problems with my FreeBSD install, I am going to reinstall it. WHich would be best for the wireless, 32bit or 64bit?

The forum wouldn't let me paste the whole thing, so here's the (what I think is) relevant section and a bit around:

0x4315
This adapter works only through the NDIS
best choice would be i386 platform
because under amd64 does not work stably

I just did a fresh BETA3 install.
Installed devel/ccache and net/bwi-firmware-kmod, then downloaded bwi.04b.tar.bz2, untarred into my root dir then cd, make, make install, kldload if_bwi and got a bunch of text on my dmesg ..

My card is a 0x431514e4 too .. but in case you are interested, I can post my dmesg.

Best regards
Gonzalo
