Broadcom drivers

Help, please.
I am trying to get opensuse working on my pc. I cannot get the wifi to work.
The really annoying part about that is it works right out of the box (so to speak) with your cd. I am currently using it right now.
Would you please tell me which version of Linux you are based on and what driver(s) you use?
My card is a bcm4312 pc-id 14e4:4329
Thanks in advance
Merry Christmas, Happy New year

It would help to post at the Opensuse site.

If you have a wired connection available, you could try updating the system that way and maybe you'll get the driver for the wifi.

Good luck...

Unless something has changed the past year or so, I believe Broadcom is (still) one of the vendors who restrict distribution of the firmware blob.

Start and go from here:
