I have a HP/Compaq Presario V2607 notebook (with AMD Turion CPU).

The WiFi is apparently Broadcom.  I have tried ndisgen in
the past and got nothing that worked.  I recently downloaded
a recent version of the driver.  Here is the listing of
the contents of the downloaded driver kit.



Volume in drive C has no label.
Volume Serial Number is BC2C-DA2B

I tried ndisgen with bcmwl5.inf and bcmwl5.sys. When I did a kldload it crashed the system. ndisgen asks about firmware files.
I don't know which files might be firmware.

If anyone who has their WiFi working with bcmwl5 drivers would send me their
kernel modules I would like to see if they work with my system.

I"m running 6.1 RELEASE.
