I know this is a huge bump, but I figured this would be better than reposting basically the same topic.
I am trying to install a wpc54g pci card, which uses the b43 driver(which is installed) and i also have the matching firmware installed to /usr/local/lib/firmware.
From there, I don't know where the problem is. Wicd's daemon wont start, and wicd itself seems to scan for a split second before saying it cannot find anything. Wifi.tcz detects wlan0, but shows no networks(there are several here.) wpa_supplicant cannot start wlan0, ifconfig will stop wlan0 but fails on start. lspci shows the correct card is loaded, modprob shows modules are loaded, wpa_gui is missing SYNC extension for Xlib, etc.
I am at a loss. Help?
