I’ve found that in a few Linux distros, the restricted drivers for Broadcom Wireless NICs are blacklisted out of the box. I’m not sure why, no one on the forums has been able to answer me as to why.
So I show you how to take those drivers off the blacklist, so that you can use the drivers that “just work” (TM), instead of messing around with NDISWrapper.
Tested Hardware – Broadcom Wireless NIC (don’t know the part number)
Tested Linux Distros – Xubuntu, CrunchBang (#!) Linux
I also found the blacklist in the Ubuntu directory.
