Ceni does not see wifi for new Acer laptop, broadcom bcm43227.

Kernel 3.2.1 64-bit aptosid. Dual booting with Windows 7.
Windows 7 wifi works.

Have non-free installed. wf-detect sees nothing.

Tried br43 and legacy as well - does not detect.


Any Suggestions? Thanks

You might need the non-free drivers for this card, as described here (use apt instead of aptitude, though): http://wiki.debian.org/wl#supported
Greetings,

You need broadcom-sta, so do
apt-get install broadcom-sta-source
m-a a-i broadcom-sta-source
and reboot

After that, ceni should show your wlan-card.

That's your problem. I'd have to take a look at the code to figure out why that's happening though. You're probably better off asking the devs of that module about it.
