# How can I get my wifi card to work?

I have a Broadcom BCM43142. Here's what lspci has to say:

01:00.0 Network controller [0280]: Broadcom Corporation BCM43142 802.11b/g/n [14e4:4365] (rev 01)
Subsystem: Lenovo Device [17aa:0611]
Flags: bus master, fast devsel, latency 0, IRQ 18
Memory at b0400000 (64-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=32K]

It looks like the only driver that will work with it is wl. I even asked b43 devs if there's a plan to support my card in the near future, and they say no. But there are endless problems with wl. It takes a very long time to connect, then an extremely long time to load a page, and then disconnects after about a minute, without indicating that it's disconnected. It's very frustrating.
