I am using Fedora 8 x86_64 on my HPdv6000 laptop which has a Broadcom Corporation BCM4310 UART (rev 01) wireless card. So installed the driver (ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp34001-34500/sp34152.exe
) with ndiswrapper. b43-fwcuttter, bcm43-fwcutter, etc are removed. I have blacklisted b43, ssb. Still I get this and the blue light never comes up.
# ndiswrapper -l
bcmwl5 : driver installed
device (14E4:4312) present (alternate driver: ssb
# dmesg | grep ndiswrapper

Any help is appreciated.
