I have an HP Pavilion dv6000 series (specifically, a dv6830us). It has a BCM4310 wireless card, and I'm wondering if it works. I've tried BackTrack, and I've tried to get the card working, but I can't seem to get it initialized or find any networks. I've looked online for information about this cards support for BackTrack, but I can't find much.
lspci gives me this:
02:00.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4310 USB Controller (rev 01)
Can someone point me in the right direction to get this working? Is it even supported? Thanks. =)
I've continued my search, but I'm still unable to find much info. I'm somewhat of a newb when it comes to these things, but I have a modest Linux background
Same problem here, any idea ?

Any new ideas?
Visit this site for more info on that useless piece of shit broadcom cards.you need to ugrade your kernel to minimum 2.6.24 or above.
find Dr. Green tutorial for kernel recompiling and to add extra patches along with ext4 support on the forum.if you advanced enough only then play with kernel recompiling.better test it using vmware or virtual server whatever u use.
Yeah, i have seen that page in my search for a working solution.
But on the pages i referred to in my previous post it says you are supposed to "unload" them when you have the new driver, or so i think
Is it possible to use backtrack3 to "build an LKM" of this driver?:

and how do i do it? following the instructions on the broadcom site doesnt work.
or is it even possible for someone else with backtrack3 to "build the LKM" and then i can use it?
Any help is much welcome!
Got it & now do your homework
