    Hello All! Pls help...confused about how to implement wifi
    connection. Running SuSE 10.3/x86_64 on HP Pavillion 9000
    w/Broadcom BCM94311MCG rev. 02 mini-pci wireless card.
    Kernel version: 2.6.22.17-0.1-default SMP
    CPU: AMD Turion 64x2 TL-52@1600MHz
    Memory: 2GB

    Goal: To use wifi by default (if chassis switch is on), but
    use standard ethernet/cat5 cable when connected (wifi
    chassis switch is off).

    Prefer use of native driver(s) if possible, but will use ndiswrapper
    if I can get step-by-step instructions for above kernel version.
    Seems appropriate driver (bcm43xx/b43) and step-by-step changed
    several times. Done a good bit of reading; *still* confused!
    TIA!

    First you have to tell us what the chipset is in that particular card.
