No matter how many times I rmmod bcm43xx it always loaded up on a reboot,
network card only seemed to work when I installed a usb adapter and then
I use my works laptop all the time so I installed opensuse 10.2 on an
external 160gb hard drive and used the installation dvd to boot the system
as I can't alter the mbr on the laptop. I tried to use grub to set up boot
record on the external one but no joy, kept getting errors.
I felt that the dvd was causing the loading of bcm43xx even though it was
blacklisted and the wireless card was configured to use ndiswrapper, the
connection information still showed up bcm43xx was being used.
I eventually got lilo installed as boot loader on the external usb and now
after booting from the hard drive, the keyring asks for the password, the
wireless connection is active immediately using ndiswrapper.
Chuffed to death I am
Well done both on the achievement and the perseverance. You deserve
to be chuffed :-)
Don't take it to the tip recycle it via the Freecycle(r) Network.
