Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 453872
b43 not working with latest kernel 22.214.171.124-76
Last modified: 2008-07-03 09:58:18 EDT
Description of problem:
After the latest kernel update I can't connect to my wireless AP using the
Broadcom Corporation BCM4318 [AirForce One 54g] 802.11g Wireless LAN Controller
The previous kernel is ok (126.96.36.199-55).
The Centrino Wireless ipw2100 works in both cases.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
kernel - 188.8.131.52-76
NetworkManager - 0.9.4.svn3675.fc9
Connect to the AP using Broadcom Corporation BCM4318 [AirForce One 54g] 802.11g
Wireless LAN Controller and kernel 184.108.40.206-76

The listing of the NetworkManager messages from /var/log/messages
I can confirm this on x86 AND x86-64 with same kernel, network manager, and wifi
chipset as reporter.
Will attach my network logs.

I'm an idiot, this does not appear to be a b43 driver issue at all, can someone
mark this bug invalid?
It looks like a WPA Supplicant issue because connecting with WEP Passphrase
128-bit works just fine, as does no wifi security at all.
I'll refile this somewhere else, stay tuned.
