    Default Broadcom 4310...the impossible wireless card!

    (sorry for my bad english).
    I've got a notebook HP Compaq 6720s with a Wireless Card "Broadcom 4310".
    This cars doesn't work with the open driver b43 and b43legacy, and doesn't work with ndiswrapper.
    Do you have any solutions for me?

    Buy a new card.
    A third party security audit is the IT equivalent of a colonoscopy. It's long, intrusive, very uncomfortable, and when it's done, you'll have seen things you really didn't want to see, and you'll never forget that you've had one.

    Looks like the card most likely will be supported by b43 in the future, but I would still suggest that you follow streaker69's advice and get a better card.
