    I have downloaded the openwrt distribution but did not found ant wireless driver. Can anybody tell me where to get this driver from? Actully I was trying to port this firmware for bcm5354.
    Any kind of help is highly appriciated...

    I'm guessing you have Kamikaze with the 2.6 kernel. The b43 oss driver/firmware for Broadcom isn't working yet and I see many waiting but not many working on it. I tried looking at it - but found out quickly why I'm a long way from becoming a developer. :)

    The proprietary Broadcom driver/firmware/utilities are pretty solid in the old 2.4 kernel. The buildroot system for Kamikaze has both kernels but some of the Broadcom wireless utilities remains only as packages.

    Development around the 2.4 kernel seems to have died in OpenWrt at the Kamikaze release.

    I use the old Whiterussian release exclusively and that older build system works quite well, even for this weekend wannabee.

    thanks for your reply. Yes I am working with kamikaze but it is based on 2,4 kernel. Can you please send some reference of the broacom wireless driver that works on this version. Thanks in advance..

    Not sure what you're looking for. The kernel module, proprietary from Broadcom, is in something like /lib/modules/2.4.30/wl.o. That's in Whiterussian - I dont run Kamikaze.
