    Default Broadcom 43227 drivers issues Acer 5750g

    Hey guys, thanks for reading.

    I have just acquired a new Acer 5750g and I am having one hell of a time trying to get the bcm drivers to work.
    I have downloaded the bcm drivers specific to my card (bcmwl-kernel-source and bcmwl-modaliases) and jockey-gtk but i get nothing.
    Also, on jockey-gtk, Hardware Drivers shows No proprietary drivers are in use.

    Silly question, I have pressed Fn + F3 but that doesn't change anything.
    Please help

    Hey man, I am having the same problems with my Acer Aspire 5750G
    It sucks so bad.

    If I launch BT5 in a Virtual machine then the drivers work...somehow?
    But I hate using VM

    So....I desperatley need help in fixing the drivers/adding them.
    Or if you could add the STA/Broadcom drivers in BT5 R2 that would be freaking SWEET

    Thanks in advance

    Im also having problems with my acer aspire 5745G.
    The wireless card (broadcom 43225) drivers cannot be installed. Please include the drivers as default in the BT R2

    Hi, i see that this post is pretty old, so some of you maybe found a solution for this issue but I have the same problem as you had. backtrack 5R2 doesn't recognize my broadcom 43227 network card on acer 5750g notbook. I have been trying to find solution for this problem for few days but didn't find any. I am new to Linux so maybe i am making mistakes. Any kind of help would be very helpful. Thanks
