Hi,

I installed Solaris 11 a couple months back on an x86(x6) Machine, and am very satisfied using it as a workstation. Its connected to my router via wire and is working perfectly.

I now would like to install Solaris on second machine. And its all working (including the second wired connection) except for the wireless driver which I need to allow me to travel with the internet.
dladm show-link gives me:
LINK CLASS MTU STATE OVER
net0 phys 1500 up --
(I have also tried running this command after toggling the wifi button on the second machine.)

The device driver utility complains about 2 missing drivers:
1. The wiif card is:
Broadcom Corporation BCM4313 802.11b/g/n Wireless LAN Controller

2. Standard serial port says:
Misconfigured:[asy]

Should there be no possiblity of fixing the problem with the wifi with a standard driver. Is it at all possible to use NDIS wrapper and a windows driver?

Kind Regards
Aubrey.
