HP Pavilion zv6000
HP Pavilion zv6000 (zv6203)
- Chipset: Broadcom BCM4318 802.11g Wireless LAN Controller (rev 02)
- Device ID: 14e4:4318
- Driver: bcmwl5.inf, BCMWL564.SYS, also had to use the 64 bit version from ftp://ftp.support.acer-euro.com/notebook/ferrari_4000/driver/winxp64bit/80211g.zip – Note: the Linuxant Driverloader drivers (64bit) will not work for this card. Only the Acer 64bit drivers have worked under this OS
Using Ndiswrapper 1.5 and the above driver with no problems.
Tested on AMD Athlon 64 CPU with Suse 10.0 X86_64
Suse 10 requires some extra help though with this wlan card. In order to work with Suse 10 x86_64, install ndiswrapper and driver then run modprobe ndiswrapper. After that, use Yast to add new network card. Select Device Type = Wireless, Configuration Name = wlan0 (or wlanX where X is the next wireless card number), Hardware Configuration Name = bus-pci-0000:XX:XX.X (replace the X’s with the pci location of the device from the output of ‘lspci -v’) – for example, my lspci -v returned ‘:03:02.0’ before my BCM4318 card, therefore my Configuration Name is ‘pci-bus-0000:03:02.0’, Module Name = ndiswrapper, and lastly in Options, put irq=XX where XX is the IRQ number also returned in the output from lspci -v. Click Next and then enter the AP Name and key information if this applies to you. After you finish that and finish the configuration, restart and press F2 at the Suse 10 boot menu. VERY IMPORTANT** Add the boot option of ‘noapic’ (NOT ‘noacpi’) and continue to boot. This option is required for Suse 10 x86_64 to see and use the BCM4318 card. Hope this helps!
