    Default bcm4312 card not working


    First of all, I'm new to BT world and this forum. Hello everyone!
    Still I do have some Linux experience.

    Now my problem.
    I just bought a new netbook, it's a Gateway LT20 and it has a broadcom 4312 rev1 wifi adaptor.
    The thing is that I can't make it work (even just for normal stuff, no injection or whatever).
    It's the famous 4315 which is suposedly hard to configure.

    I can see it with lshw -C network but it doesn't show up in ifconfig -a.
    In lshw, it doesn't have a logical name.

    I've made a lot of research and followed a lot of guides but with no luck and no even progressing.

    Can anybody help me to make it work. At least for connecting to the Internet.

    I have been on a painful mission to get the bcm4312 (pciid :4315) working as well. So far I have failed with compat-wireless, the shipped wl (broadcom-sta) driver, and the wl driver compiled from source.


    the wl driver that ships with bt4 pre final DOES work. I am typing this post from my Hp Mini 110 right now.

    To be clear though, the wl driver will NOT help you with any sort of wireless pentesting, as this closed driver does not support monitor or injection.

    Hope this helps
