I posted the following question as part of a multiple part question yesterday, but that thread (here) is getting too complex, and I think this is a separate issue anyway.

How do I go about setting up a WLAN access on my laptop (Fujitsu Siemens Amilo Pro) with a Broadcom 802.11g Network Adapter?

Zitat:
For stable bcm43xx (broadcom) connections you need at the very least kernel 2.6.18.1-slh*-2, then
Code:
su -c /usr/share/bcm43xx-fwcutter/install_bcm43xx_firmware.sh
because we can't legally distribute the firmware. After doing that (and rebooting into the new kernel) you're ready to configure it just like any other wlan card (take care that netcardconfig can't deal with wpa right now, so that needs to be configured manually --> FAQ).
I have the following kernel installed: 2.6.18-kanotix-1, which is too old to setup the broadcom card (I think). Does this mean I need to load/compile a new kernel? If so, how do I do this?

h2's script makes it easy to update your kernel, as well as dist-upgrading etc.

ndiswrapper worked far better than the broadcom module for me, even with that kernel. Cant remember the steps to get it going, Kano held my hand sorry.....

This issue seems to be resolved. The "out of the box" Kanotix configuration was OK after all. It works with other wifi connections, but not mine. The problem is with the DSL box provided by Deutsche Telekom (TCom Speedport W 501V). Has anyone had any experience with this? Thanks, and thanks to everyone who has helped out on this...!
