Hi all,

Need some (_more_) advice please...

Am getting following errors from time to time using a Broadcom BCM4318 802.11a/b/g Wireless LAN card using bwi(4):

kernel: bwi0: bwi_intr: intr PHY TX error
kernel: bwi0: bwi_restart begin, help!
kernel: bwi0: firmware rev 0x0127, patch level 0x000e
...During which time is does not pass traffic.

For reference:
bwi0: PHY: type 2, rev 7, ver 3
Many thanks in advance. James.

Hello James,
I have a Broadcom BCM4311 802.11a/b/g Wireless LAN adapter, and the error message is identical to yours. Did you ever get to the bottom of this? I am also thinking about getting a replacement miniPCIe. Do you have any recommendation? Thanks
