If we have one laptop with Broadcom wireless card and we cannot use the Wi-FiAll we have to do is run a simple command or, if not, install the relevant packages manually.
We try first with the order. We open our console and run, to obtain administrative permissions:
Immediately after we enter the command:
The script will start running and we will then be informed that the drivers necessary for the proper functioning of our network card have been successfully installed. The Wi-Fi light on our computer will turn on and we will be able to connect to the network connection of our choice. You don’t just need to restart your laptop.
A different option is to install the package Broadcom-wl. To do this we add the Packman repository:
zypper ar -f http://packman.inode.at/suse/openSUSE_12.3/ packman
The following is to find out which version of the kernel we use, for this purpose we run on our console:
In the case of what he writes it is the version 3.7.10-1.1-desktop, So attached to the package Broadcom-wl the package must also be installed Broadcom-wl-KMP-desktop:
zypper in broadcom-wl broadcom-wl-kmp-desktop
The other packages available are: Broadcom-wl-KMP-default, Broadcom-wl-KMP-pae i Broadcom-wl-KMP-xen. Once the installation is complete, all that remains is to restart our system with openSUSE 12.3 in order to make use of the wireless connections.
