    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
