Wifi in Fedora 10 (broadcom wl)

December 8, 2008 3 comments

To make them work you have 2 ways:

1)Install Ndiswrapper

or

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

http://download1.rpmfusion.org/nonfree/fedora/releases/10/Everything/i386/os/

and use rpm -ivh <name>  (Remember: ALT+F2>gnome-terminal>su – >then yum install <name> or rpm -ivh <name>)

kmod-wl-*

broadcom-wl-*

* 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
