Hi,

I followed some hints in this forum to get my bcm4318 wireless card working.
I downloaded the actual driver package from the HP Website and extracted the firmware.
I can see my wlans in the NetworkManager Applet, I can click on them an NM tries to
connect them. For me it seems that the IP address discovery is unsuccessful.
Has someone this or a similar problem solved ?

Here you'll find the interesting part of /var/log/messages:

I tried the v3 driver also but with the effect that no wlan can be ether seen nor connected.

2 Days ago I upgraded to fc7 from fc6 where the wlan stuff worked very well.

Any hint is welcome...
