Nu har jeg ikke lige en bcm maskine i nærheden, men den plejer at
skrive i logfilen at den ikke har kunnet loade firmwaren samt
en URL med et link til hvor man kan finde denne firmware.

Men det er måske kun med nyere kerner?

The firmware is available in two versions. V3 firmware is used with
the in-kernel bcm43xx driver that uses a software MAC layer called
SoftMAC, and will have a microcode revision of 0x127 or smaller. The
V4 firmware is used by an out-of-kernel driver employing a variation of
the Devicescape MAC layer known as d80211. Once bcm43xx-d80211 reaches
a satisfactory level of development, it will replace bcm43xx-softmac
in the kernel as it is much more flexible and powerful.

A source for the latest V3 firmware is

http://downloads.openwrt.org/sources/wl_apsta-3.130.20.0.o

Once this file is downloaded, the command
'bcm43xx-fwcutter -w <dir> <filename>'
will extract the microcode and write it to directory
<dir>. The correct directory will depend on your distribution;
however, most use '/lib/firmware'. Once this step is completed,
the bcm3xx driver should load when the system is booted. To see
any messages relating to the driver, issue the command 'dmesg |
grep bcm43xx' from a terminal window. If there are any problems,
please send that output to sslug@sslug
