The BMC4311 works with firmware-openfwwf.tcz.

OK, but in this instance I'm reasonably sure the problem is that the user has not "cut" and loaded the broadcom firmware to use with the b43 driver.

What I have found unique to TCP is that NO RFKill app exists!

Not sure what makes you say so, it appears to be in repo.

You just need to follow the instructions on the Linux wireless b43 page I referenced previously and then make your own personal extension of the firmware

How can software turn the wifi LED completely OFF??
Maybe:
Code: [Select]
sudo rfkill unblock wifiMan page for rfkill:
http://linux.die.net/man/1/rfkill
The man pages for rfkill are also included with the extension. If you install the  man  extension, you can view
them locally.

That's your DNS not working. Double-check /etc/resolv.conf.
The only barriers that can stop you are the ones you create yourself.

- What do you refer to by "loop"?

- How did you configure each interface - statically or dynamically?

- Please post output of "route -n"

Please search this forum for posts about how to configure multiple net interfaces.
For simplicity and to stay on the safe side, you might for now stay with 1 interface being up at a time only.
