Broadcom 57xx ( BCM5755M ) issue on Dell D830 laptop

(1/1)

innominate:
Hi, I'm trying to boot TC on a Dell Latitude D830.  Everything seems to work okay except that TC doesn't recognize the NIC, i.e. there's only a loopback device, no eth0.

The NIC in this case appears to be a Broadcom BCM5755M.  Any suggestions before I start playing with NDISwrapper or otherwise heading down the wrong path would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Juanito:
Is this one that needs firmware to be loaded?

Thanks Juanito, that was it.  It required firmware-broadcom.tcz.

I originally poked around in that file but only saw 802 references to 802.11* and figured it was just for wireless cards.
