    Default Broadcom BCM43225 [14e4:4357] not working

    I could only get managed mode networking working. (I could connect to the internet via wifi)
    Anything else didn't work (monitor mode, injection etc...)

    I would be glad if there is a solution for this, but I probably will have to get a USB wireless dongle to use backtrack with this laptop. (I'm not sure which model to get either -.-)

    Default AW: Broadcom BCM43225 [14e4:4357] not working

    hello, i have the same wlan card in my notebook (Acer TravelMate 5740G).
    i just booted backtrack 4 R1 from an USB thumbdrive and i couldn't get it to work also.
    Connecting regularly worked but no monitor mode or injection. If there is an update for it i'd appreciate some info. thank you.

    Question Re: Broadcom BCM43225

    Greatings All..
    I was wondering if anyone has tried this Fully open Linux driver? I found this release on "" and wasn't sure what to think about it yet. But i will have to try it to see. Just thought i would pass it on to see if it helps.

    "Broadcom would like to announce the initial release of a fully-open
    Linux driver for it's latest generation of 11n chipsets. The driver,
    while still a work in progress, is released as full source and uses the
    native mac80211 stack. It supports multiple current chips (BCM4313,
    BCM43224, BCM43225) as well as providing a framework for supporting
    additional chips in the future, including mac80211-aware embedded chips.
    The README and TODO files included with the sources provide more
    details about the current feature set, known issues, and plans for
    improving the driver.

    The driver is currently available in staging-next git tree, available at:


    in the drivers/staging/brcm80211 directory."
