Hi Xianwen Chen
The one AppBrowser uses when it gets an extension for you. You want:
pci-utils.tcz
usb-utils.tcz

They are in pci-utils and usb-utils.  AppBrowser could have found them for you.

That's true. Thank you Gerald. But if you try lsusb and lspci, which were the keywords that I used in AppBrowser, it gives you nothing.

You have to change "Search" to "Provides".

"provides" is very usefull type of research, is very interesting because it searches for files in all packages

O.t. I hope that in future there is a keywords field in info file  :P

As per here:

http://linuxwireless.org/en/users/Drivers/b43#Supported_devices

..your device is not supported in the tinycore 3.0.3 kernel

But as per here:

http://www.broadcom.com/support/802.11/linux_sta.php

..it looks like your device is suported by the "wl" driver in the wl-modules-3.0.3-tinycore extension

No, it's not supported by 3.0.3 kernel, as it was a driver in stage and wasn't enabled. It just went out of stage few weeks ago. I'm hoping that when the kernel is updated next time, this driver will be included.

In the meantime, you could use the broadcom wl driver or compile the latest compat wireless

No, it doesn't work. But I do have USB wireless adapters which old kernels recognize; so I can wait for a new kernel.

Maybe no? I did sudo modprobe with the three lines of  commands in the info file. How to blacklist modules?
