Hello.

My broadcom wifi adapter in usupported by the b43 or b43legacy drivers (PCI-ID: 14e4:43a0).

I must use an Alternative module for that device - wl.

On archlinux I used a broadcom-wl-dkms package for this adapter, it download and compile 64bit driver sources from this page:

I have no idea how it can be compiled manually. Can somebody show me how to do that, please?
