Description of problem:
bcm4306 based wireless card no longer works with latest development kernel.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
wireless card worked with kernel-2.6.20-1.2949 (previous kernel since I ugpraded
Searching the test mailing list revealed that I needed to upgrade to a newer
firmware because of a change in the bcm43xx driver in the kernel, however the
newer firmware does not work. Search of the net found the following
indicates that the wireless card in my laptop (Dell Inspiron 5150) is too old
for the newly required firmware (lspci gives my bcm4306 as rev 03).
