Well, I am not certain about what is wrong with the Free driver that
Broadcom already offers to the Linux kernel. It is actually built in
the Linux kernel. I am sorry I knew there was driver available because
I had to compile it a few weeks ago for another computer, but I wasn't
sure that it was Free software. It turns out it is. Or maybe it isn't.
Drivers confuse me.

You can compile the kernel by including the module under Device
Drivers --> Network --> 1000 MB or something like that and It is
called the Tigon3 driver.

You can download the source here:
