Default Bug#597034: linux-image-2.6.32-5-amd64: broadcom-sta wireless driver fails to detect interface after upgrade

Package: linux-2.6
Version: 2.6.32-22
Severity: normal

After upgrading to 2.6.32-22, the "wl.ko" driver from broadcom-sta package
fails to detect my Broadcom BCM43224 wireless interface, i.e. no entry
appears in "iwconfig" result.

My device:

# lspci | grep -i network
03:00.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM43224 802.11a/b/g/n (rev 01)
# iwconfig
lo no wireless extensions.

eth0 no wireless extensions.

(Normally, eth1 should be found with wireless extension here.)

Rebuilding the broadcom-sta module with module-assistant doesn't help.
Downgrading to 2.6.32-21 does make it work again.

I added the brcm80211 driver which is a free (GPL) replacement for
broadcom-sta/wl. You'll need to install firmware images which, er, I haven't
uploaded yet, sorry. For now, you can get these from
<http://svn.debian.org/wsvn/kernel/dists/trunk/firmware-nonfree/brcm80211/brcm/>
and install them under /lib/firmware/brcm. They will be included in the
firmware-brcm80211 package shortly.

Thank you for the info. I've installed the firmware images as you suggested.
Now the 2.6.32-22 kernel with brcm80211 module can detect my wireless
card as "wlan0", and I'm replying you through it.

So, this bug can be closed as soon as the firmware is uploaded to sid.

Thanks for your works!
