Wifi card not connected after kernel update [solved]

Hi,

I've got a broadcom wifi card (BCM43225). Having deconnections with the brcmsmac driver, I changed for wl (from broadcom archive).

Today I updated the system and got the b43 driver. My wifi card would'nt see any network. On the networkmanager applet (gnome 3), tab "network parameters", it says "disconnected" and i can't find a way of reconnect my card.

I rebuilt the wl driver, it works as for the b43 (wifi card on) but still it's disconnected.

Extract of dmesg shows:

  ADDRCONF(NETDEV_UP): wlan0: link is not ready  

Any idea ?

Thanks

Give what you have. To someone, it may be better than you dare to think.

No idea about wl, but for b43 did you install the firmware (b43-firmware package in AUR)?

It's weird: I had already installed b43 firmware from AUR but it didn't work (kernel 3.0). As I yaourted b43-firmware it said: "reinstall ?".

So I reinstalled and it f***ing works.

I'm not sure I got what happened...

Thank you though.
