here, instead of system info try lspci, lspci.zip after installed type in terminal: lspci -nn
see if it shows with device and vendor ID even if you already have the info you need to search for a possible extension, it is useful to have and know how to use for future reference and googling if nothing else

He said you cannot use your Broadcom wireless card. You must buy one that works.

If it's been said twice, probably a good idea to do it once :cowboy:

The OP already said in post #11 http://www.insanelym...dpost&p=1836693 that his wireless card doesn't show in LSPCI.

I wonder why that is though.

he was using SystemInfo.app and not lspci, don't know if that makes a difference.....

and I've never used a netbook for more than 30 seconds before, do they connect straight to the PCI bus for wifi or is it on USB or something?
