Default HOWTO enable Broadcom BCM57780 ethernet chip

It always.

2011/1/9 Walter Dnes <waltdnes@waltdnes.org>

*I recently got myself a shiny new toy, a 14" notebook, and installed

Gentoo (naturally). *The biggest struggle was getting the Broadcom

BCM57780 ethernet chip recognized. *For the benefit of anybody else who

runs into problems, here is the step-by-step solution...



as root...

cd /usr/src/linux

make menuconfig

*Device Drivers *--->

* *[*] Network device support *--->

* * *-*- * PHY Device support and infrastructure *--->

* * * *<*> * Drivers for Broadcom PHYs

* * *[*] * Ethernet (1000 Mbit) *--->

* * * *<*> * Broadcom Tigon3 support



save .config, rebuild kernel, and reboot. *Ethernet works fine.
