Description of problem:
FC6 don't show device wi-fi Broadcom Corporation BCM4310, with bcm43xx
I use notebook Compaq NX6320.
If i use another distro (live) in this notebook, no problems found -> no
problems with hardware.
If i use ndiswrapper, then show the wi-fi, but can't connect with wpa_supplicant
I have others notebooks, and connect with wpa_supplicant intel 2200 (driver
ipw2200) -> no problems with ap.

3. when i enter : iwconfig
lo no wireless extensions.

Please try a recent kernel.
i try with 2.6.19-1.2911, but don't work. The problem is the same.
Latest kernel is 2.6.19-1.2911.6.5
(This is a mass-update to all current FC6 kernel bugs in NEW state)
I'm reviewing this bug list as part of the kernel bug triage project, an attempt
to isolate current bugs in the Fedora kernel.
I am CC'ing myself to this bug, however this version of Fedora is no longer
Please attempt to reproduce this bug with a current version of Fedora (presently
Fedora 8). If the bug no longer exists, please close the bug or I'll do so in a
few days if there is no further information lodged.
Thanks for using Fedora!
I use ndiswrapper and have sucess to connect with wpa2 personal and enterprise.
