Broadcom BCM 4318

Post by iamk2 » Fri Mar 28, 2014 7:24 pm

1. Major linux distro hopper.
2. Tried BSD's in the past on a gateway laptop.
3. Saw some great reviews for the newer versions.
4. Researched and saw possible conflict for wireless card.
5. Before putting in a good bit of time making it work I thought I would just ask if it will?

Wireless card is a Broadcom BCM 4318
According to my reading this install should be as it is in linux distros.
First install the firmware then the driver?

GhostBSD have the drivers already install with the firmware, i am not sure that BCM 4318 is supported.

You would have a better answer with FreeBSD, I do not deal with kernel driver in GhostBSD.
