    Unhappy Any Broadcom Fixes Yet?

    I have been reading all over the place and can't find what I'm looking for, I want to know if there are any new fixes for the macbook white 13inch wireless n broadcom cards yet?

    Is there some kind of patch or driver update I can get to have my wifi card detected?

    Thanks...

    you need to upgrade kernel to 2.6.24 and above and to install b43 drivers.

    Is this info old,

    unsupported

    * The 802.11a part of the 4309 and 4312 is not supported.
    * BCM 4310 USB - This device has an LP PHY. We think that means low power. In any case, previous code does not work. The reverse engineers have translated a great deal of the code and are currently generating specs for the code writers. Note: This card uses the PCI buss, despite its name.
    * BCM 4322 802.11a/b/g/n (Has PCI-ID 0x432B) - This device has an N Phy. There is no support for any Draft 802.11n features. We are working on it.
    * BCM 4321 (Has PCI-IDs 0x4328 and 0x4329) - These devices have N Phys. There is no support for any Draft 802.11n features. We are working on it.

    I have the N and i think it's 4328, how can i tell for sure?

    btw, i got the info from,

    hxxp://linuxwireless.org/en/users/Drivers/b43

    Thanks!

    Or even monitor mode I am afraid. If these are options you need I believe the b43 driver is your best bet.

    One of these days I'm going to have to throw a different drive in my MacBook and play around with this. Maybe I'll wait until V4 comes out. I know Ubuntu works on the macs.
    Of course, if you really wanted to have some fun, go to Wal-Mart late at night and ask the greeter if they could help you find trashbags, roll of carpet, rope, quicklime, clorox and a shovel. See if they give you any strange looks. --Streaker69
