    Default HP pavilion zv5000 with BCM4306

    Hello, I am having issues with my wireless card on my pavilion zv5000. I have tried searching the forums here, but I cannot seem to find any hints. It is using a Broadcom 4306 wireless card. It seems to detect the card just fine, but no matter what I try I cannot get it to 'see' anything. I have done everything I could find but still with no success. Any tips/pointers/helpers would be much appreciated. I've been working at this for the last couple days with no success. Thanks =) I'll answer any clarifying questions you may have.

    Broadcom uses the windows driver via ndiswrapper....... So.... It will never work for anything but surfing...

    Search BC43XX and you will find tons on this.
