What kind of information do you need ?

As you probably noticed the kernel I'm running is 2.6.38-rc6.

Revelant part of lscpi:

12:00.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation Device 4727 (rev 01)
Subsystem: Dell Device 0010
Flags: bus master, fast devsel, latency 0, IRQ 17
Memory at fbb00000 (64-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=16K]
Capabilities: <access denied>
Kernel driver in use: brcm80211
Kernel modules: brcm80211

Do you want me to give it a try ?

My scenario is:

- set the switch to OFF
- insmod the module
- bring up/configure the interface

Thanks
