[Solved] WLAN, Wireless Problem With HP Compaq CQ71

When installing Fedora 12 on HP Compaq CQ71, it was not intended for using WLAN, however, when it comes for its usage, I found out the NetworkManager does not see any wireless networks (Broadcom card).

Remove the ssb blacklist option from boot kernel parameters (these two steps are optional, however):

and from modprobe.d:

Install akmod-wl and build the module:

Install module:

Restart network:

At this point the laptop’s NetworkManager starts to see the networks around.
