I just got one of these during bootup, which prevented bcm43xx from starting correctly. The logged sequence was: kernel: bcm43xx-phy1: Broadcom 4311 WLAN found kernel: ssb: Switching to IEEE 802.11 core, index 1 kernel: bcm43xx-phy1 debug: Found PHY: Analog 4, Type 2, Revision 8 kernel: bcm43xx-phy1 debug: Found Radio: Manuf 0x17F, Version 0x2050, Revision 2 kernel: bcm43xx-phy1 debug: Radio turned off kernel: wmaster0: Selected rate control algorithm 'simple' ifup: Service network not started and mode 'auto' -> skipping kernel: net eth1: device_rename: sysfs_create_symlink failed (-17) ifup: Network interface is managed from NetworkManager ifup: NetworkManager will be advised to set up eth1 ifup: but it cannot be assured from here. kernel: bcm43xx-phy1 debug: Adding Interface type 2 kernel: ssb: Switching to PCI-E core, index 3 kernel: ssb: Switching to IEEE 802.11 core, index 1 kernel: bcm43xx-phy1: bcm43xx: Microcode bcm43xx_microcode5.fw3.fw loaded The fix for this was to 'modprobe -r bcm43xx' followed by 'modprobe bcm43xx', which got everything started OK.
