bcm43xx driver still not working well on Lenovo 3000 N100

Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone

Bug Description

Binary package hint: kernel-image-2.6.20-13-generic-di

The firmware extracted from Windows drivers is version 4 and the driver says it doesn't support it (numerous messages in dmesg). The firmware downloaded from the unofficial site http://debian.cafuego.net/dists/feisty-cafuego/bcm43xx/ doesn't work particularly well, it deadlocks on ping -f to the nearest wireless gateway, with no chance to rmmod it.

The same laptop works great with ndiswrapper, so it's definitely a question of lack of support for relevant firmware and/or a bug in the driver.

Thanks for taking the time to report this bug and helping to make Ubuntu better. Now that the final version of Feisty Fawn is available we were wondering if this issue still exists. Thanks in advance.

I'm no longer a primary user of that machine, so it may take a couple of days before I'll be able to test it properly.

Sorry for sowing confusion - I've been moving to another country and settling in June/July and had no wireless network at home at all, and then I forgot about the whole thing. Hope to test it with final Feisty and perhaps recent Gutsy preview this week.

Seems to work well in the final FF.
