Description of problem: I am unable to use my broadcom 4306 wireless device on
powerbook g4. I installed the proper firmware using bcm43xx-fwcutter and when i
enter dmesg | grep bcm43xx i got this error line:
bcm43xx_mac80211: !WARNING! Idle-TSSI phy->cur_idle_tssi measuring failed.
(cur=0, tgt=62). Disabling power adjustment
CC'ing firstname.lastname@example.org for opinions on this one.
Reassigning to the kernel component, this is likely a driver bug not a NM bug.
Herminio can you append the output of rpm -q kernel?
the output of rpm -q kernel is:
Is this issue just about that warning? Or does the device actually fail to
the device fails to work.
OK, then we need some better information. How about attaching the output of
`dmesg` and the output of `lspci -n`? Also, please indicate the exact source
of the firmware you are using (URL preferred)...thanks!

I forgot to add that even with the new kernel my wireless device still does
Please try the firmware from here:
Does that work any better for you?
I extracted the firmware using bcm43xx-fwcutter and there was no change.

Please execute this script as root on your machine. This will configure your
machine to use the older bcm43xx driver. This is necessary on some devices
with older chip revisions, even though the PCI ID would indicate that the newer
driver should work.
After executing the script from comment 17, does your wireless work?
Closed due to lack of response...
