To make them work you have 2 ways:
2)Install Broadcom Driver for linux
Faster is the Broadcom route so here goes:–
You need to install these packages either through package manager or download them seperately from
and use rpm -ivh <name> (Remember: ALT+F2>gnome-terminal>su – >then yum install <name> or rpm -ivh <name>)
* means all packages for your kernel version and architecture
to find kernel version uname -r
3)Open /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-wlan0 (assuming wlan0 is the wireless interface)
change ONBOOT=off to ONBOOT=on
Intrepid Ibex comes with the Broadcom STA driver which has wl.ko module but ssb and b43 modules r loaded..
Add folowing lines to /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist
Reboot and check if your wifi is working or not .
If not (and the modules still got loaded into memory)
delete following modules
/lib/modules/’uname -r ‘/kernel/drivers/ssb/ssb.ko
/lib/modules/’uname -r ‘/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/b43/b43.ko
