that is great. Ok, do you have the kernel sources on your system ? If
so, cd to the root of the source tree and issue these commands to build
make SUBDIRS=drivers/staging/brcm80211 clean
make SUBDIRS=drivers/staging/brcm80211 modules
if that works, do a 'modprobe mac80211' followed by a 'insmod
drivers/staging/brcm80211/brcmutil/brcmutil.ko' followed by a 'insmod
Btw, I will assume until further notice that you disable network-manager
prior to loading the driver.
Let me know how this goes, then we can take it to the next level.
