Topic: [SLVD] Broadcom 4353 Old Driverpack Worked But New Doesn't

Hello...
I have an Alienware m11x with the Dell 1520 Wlan (Broadcom 4353) card.
I want to say that the September 2010 drivers installed the card, just fine (BR0, if I remember correctly).  The January 2011 pack, though, disables the card and doesn't install the drivers, properly.
I created the install with nLite, using an xp pro sp3 retail disc.
I don't see a means of attaching my logs, so someone may have to give me an e-mail address.

Just copy/paste the contents of the logs to another post.  We'll need the DPs_BASE.log and the list of HWIDs (utility in my signature).
The broadcom drivers had a major upgrade from the past release.  We may need to roll them back.

I'll have to get the HWID's later.  I'm testing the September 2010 Wlan drivers, again.

Yep...
September 2010 Wlan worked just fine.  The new drivers are borked (at least for this chip).
Hehehe...

Re: [SLVD] Broadcom 4353 Old Driverpack Worked But New Doesn't

Fair enough.  I've always said that newer does not equal better.
Please post your HWID list when you get a chance so I can get to work updating (or downgrading?) the pack. wink
Maybe I can fix it so we have both.

Re: [SLVD] Broadcom 4353 Old Driverpack Worked But New Doesn't

I also see a lack of Broadcom 802.11n WLAN driver support in newest pack. Sept 2010 pack works OK.

Will forward HWIDs ASAP, but wanted to register my discovery with you.

FYI, I'm backrevving a pair of HP G72-B60US laptops with HM55 chipsets and Core i3 CPUs.

All other drivers are working except WLAN in latest pack.

Details to follow. I know the drill. <grin>

Thanks again for the sterling work supporting a gargantuan project with superhuman technical support and limitless patience.

LOL, Thanks Mark. big_smile
Driver roll-back in progress.  Back to the drawing-board.

Re: [SLVD] Broadcom 4353 Old Driverpack Worked But New Doesn't

I'm updating the affected Br0 folder with the drivers from this post: http://forum.driverpacks.net/viewtopic.php?id=5166
Let me know if it fails again and I'll roll back to the ones from the Sept pack.

Re: [SLVD] Broadcom 4353 Old Driverpack Worked But New Doesn't

Any word on the latest DP release doubleJ, cheche or markstrelecki?

I haven't tried this rc1 on an install disk (I just realized it was available today).
I can say that br0 does work on my laptop, when installed manually.
I can also say that the official website release still does not (I made a new cd just a couple of weeks ago).

Re: [SLVD] Broadcom 4353 Old Driverpack Worked But New Doesn't

Just so you know, I'm updating Br0 again from the above post.  Please test the next 11.08r1 on your "problem child" when I'm done building it.

Re: [SLVD] Broadcom 4353 Old Driverpack Worked But New Doesn't

This should be fixed in DriverPack WLAN 11.09

Re: [SLVD] Broadcom 4353 Old Driverpack Worked But New Doesn't

Have downloaded this latest WLAN DriverPack and hope to test it on the laptop very soon.

Gracious thanks from a grateful user of a wonderful product and your over-the-top technical talents.

Lovin' the colorful adjectives.  Thanks Mark.

Re: [SLVD] Broadcom 4353 Old Driverpack Worked But New Doesn't

Building a new nlite cd.
I'll let you know if it's working.

Re: [SLVD] Broadcom 4353 Old Driverpack Worked But New Doesn't

WLAN 11.09 does work!!!
JJ

Re: [SLVD] Broadcom 4353 Old Driverpack Worked But New Doesn't

Thanks for confirming the fix.  Marking as Solved...
