But, I have heard good things about broadcom-wl. Linux Wireless the home of BCM 43XX nowadays says that b43 will never support USB devices see "caveats" there.


The simple fact, however, is that the in-tree Efforts to work with and improve that code will be better received by the networking maintainers than pointing at out-of-tree parallel implementations. So the softmac code used by the bcm53xx driver would appear to have an advantage going forward: Thanks in advance. Brian Brian 6 3 3 bronze badges. That is, of course, assuming you BCM 43XX nothing helpful in the documentation. I manged to "Fix it" by BCM 43XX coding it it.

They also can't do 4-addr bridging and are missing some other features. So since this is in the firmware is it safe to assume that this affects all devices with the broadcom chip, regardless of what OS they're running? BCM 43XX
