Has anyone sucessfully installed the bcm43xx driver without extracting the firmware. I am not dual booting with OSX just running FC5.

Thanks

Not me, all howtos say you need extract the firmware. Why do you need install without excract?

I thought you needed to extract the firmware in a OS X directory?

This worked fine to me. Follow instructions. I am using a Mac too and the driver in my OS X partition doesn't work, but you can download another driver, remember: follow instructions in the URL above
