Hello everybody,

actually I've also solved BCM problems on Dell laptop. A complete walkthough I made is posted at http://wiki.centos.org/HowTos/Laptops/Dell/Vostro-1400 and I'm almost sure this might work for many BCM chipsets. If anybody checked this on diffrent laptops, maybe a universal tutorial could be posted at http://wiki.centos.org/HowTos/Laptops/Wireless.

Of course if there's already a RPM package for Broadcom, would be nice to see instructions on Wiki.

Yours faithfully,
Gytis Repecka

>> Hi Ralph,
>> I'm a member of CentOS forum and I've tracked problems laptop users are having with Broadcom's wireless hardware (namely, the one(s) in the subject).
>> Under the circumstances, I had to install one of these myself back in August, which I did - after doing some googleing. Shortly after, NedSlider considered compiling the driver for ELrepo, but gave up after reviewing Broadcom's software license. Meanwhile, I've noticed quite a few people having problems with installation of this particular driver, but usually asking for help due to lack of a comprehensive manual, and thats just on forum and mailing list.
>> The point:
>> I've written a manual (hopefully comprehensive one), and would like to publish it on CentOS Wiki pages (CentOS on Laptops, in particular). I've already discussed this issue with Alan Bartlett, and both he and Phil (NedSlider) expressed their support. Alan also refered you as the man I should send this request to along with my Wiki login name, so you could  eventually escalate my privileges on CentOS Wiki.
