Fedora 15 with the latest updates.
I have the following wifi hardware device:
01:00.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4313 802.11b/g LP-PHY (rev 01)
And using the kernel:
22.214.171.124-9.fc15.x86_64 #1 SMP Wed Mar 30 16:55:57 UTC 2011 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
To install the boardcom wifi driver I first used the kmod-wl driver. However, when I did the usual:
yum install kmod-wl
It complained about my kernel version is not supported.
So I tried the following:
yum install akmod-wl
Reboot the computer and everything worked fine, checked that the wl had been loaded:
Now I can connect to the wifi.
What is the difference between the kmod-wl and akmod-wl? kmod failed but akmod was successful?
Many thanks for any suggestions,
