    Hi, I'm a Spanish user and this message is translated into English. Sorry for the mistakes. wanted to know if there is a version of "xiaopan" broadcom supports version 43. Being this forum in English I find it impossible to trace. thank you very much.

    In Spain:
    hola, soy un usuario español y este mensaje esta traducido al inglés. Perdón por los errores. queria saber si hay una versión de "xiaopan" compatible con la versión broadcom 43. Al estar este foro en inglés se me hace imposible la búsqueda. muchas gracias

    Welcome niosa.

    Xiaopan does not have good compatibility with the B43. Crackerz Wave did you find a version working for the B43?

    We discussed the possibility of getting it to work in 0.4.4 by deleting conflicting drivers.

    I had an internal card with that chipset, Beini 1.2.3 worked fine with it, but later it was replaced with an Atheros AR9285

    Yo tuve una tarjeta interna con ese chipset, trabajó bien con Beini 1.2.3 pero despues la cambie por una Atheros AR9285

    I suspect we need to look at Beini 1.2.3 and figure out what drivers are in use to see if we can port a solution to Xiaopan. All open to suggestions comparing the ISOs :).

    I do not have a B43 so I cannot test. It is upto B43 users to try to get this to work.

    What modules does it use
    Code:
    Select All
    lsmod
    I'm not 100% sure but with the latest compat you may need to use ndisWrapper or you may get it to work with wl-modules.
    Whats
    Code:
    Select All
    lsusb
    say about your card.

    Screenshots aren't much use just write them to a text file.
    These are basic linux / uninx commands use root shell these will be written to your home folder.
    Copy them to the root of your pen drive to access them from windows "i'm guessing your a windows user"
    Code:
    Select All
    lspci >> lspci.txt lsusb >> lsusb.txt
    This will debug usb a bit more
    Code:
    Select All
    lsusb -vvv -s 1:02 >> lsusbDebug.txt
    These will write the last 20 lines of dmesg
    Code:
    Select All
    dmesg | tail -20 >> dmesgTail.txt
    This will write the full dmesg
    Code:
    Select All
    dmesg >> dmesg.txt
