bcm43xx wireless fails to work in G-only wireless environment
Last modified: 2008-08-02 19:40:34 EDT
Description of problem:
My PowerBook G4's bcm4306 wireless fails to function under Linux if my Linksys
WAP54G is set to 802.11g-only mode. Works fine under Linux if its in mixed b/g
mode, or if its in either b/g-mixed or g-only under Mac OS X.
Note: I have yet to see if the bcm43xx_mac80211 driver is any better, it was
only earlier today that I got a sufficiently new enough firmware in place to try
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
You should be using bcm43xx_mac80211 with recent rawhide/fc7 kernels...do they
work better in g-only networks?
Sorry for the delay... Yeah, the bcm43xx_mac80211 driver works fine w/the base station set to G-only.
