Hello all. I am trying to enable b43 driver on my Latitude D620. (I've a broadcom card.) I used the guide, "" which worked to get my wifi up and going, but It doesn't work on startup. I have to run "modprobe b43" to get things started every time. I think a different driver is loading by default, but I don't know which to blacklist (if any). I have skimmed through some manpages, several guides, and searched the forum. I'm new to Fedora, so if anyone could propose a solution or offer any advice, that would be great. Thanks in advance.

Load driver automatically at boot time.

echo 'b43' | sudo tee /etc/modules-load.d/b43.conf

I apologize it took so long to reply. This command doesn't seem to do anything, I have tried it several times. It just seems to do nothing/never finish, and there is no output.
