Here's one that only works with the wl driver and only when wpa_supplicant is run in the foreground
Wireless NIC Chip = Broadcom Corporation BCM43228
USB ID =
PCI ID = 14e4:4359
OEM & Model as tested = Dell Wireless 1530 Wireless-N WLAN Mini-Card
HW rev = ??
Interface = PCI
WLAN standard [802.11] = 802.11a/b/g/n
Frequency Band = 2.4 & 5GHz
Security (1) = WPA2
Tested with kernel = 3.0.21-tinycore
Tested with Wifi.tcz = N
Required Extensions (2) =
As per http://linuxwireless.org/en/users/Drivers/b43
: this hardware is not tested, but should work with the broadcom wl driver.
As per http://www.broadcom.com/support/802.11/linux_sta.php
These packages contain Broadcom's IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n hybrid Linux® device driver for use with Broadcom's BCM4311-, BCM4312-, BCM4313-, BCM4321-, BCM4322-, BCM43224-, and BCM43225-, BCM43227- and BCM43228-based hardware.
.and it looks like it should work:
lib80211: common routines for IEEE802.11 drivers
lib80211_crypt: registered algorithm 'NULL'
wl 0000:02:00.0: PCI INT A -> GSI 17 (level, low) -> IRQ 17
wl 0000:02:00.0: setting latency timer to 64
lib80211_crypt: registered algorithm 'TKIP'
eth1: Broadcom BCM4359 802.11 Hybrid Wireless Controller 220.127.116.11
lib80211_crypt: registered algorithm 'WEP'
lib80211_crypt: registered algorithm 'CCMP'
..but it only seems to work with wpa_supplicant run in the foreground
..and with the latest ndiswrapper release candidate (which adds additional ndis commands required for this device) and the driver from here http://ftp1.us.dell.com/FOLDER00436179M/1/Network_Driver_PP4MX_WN_A02.EXE

..it still doesn't work
