Broadcom driver for Solaris

  • 1.  Broadcom driver for Solaris

    I just installed Solaris 11.3 on the laptop. This laptop have Broadcom BCM4312 WiFi card.

    It looks like the install does not have a driver for this card just like 11.1 version.

    I have a Linux installed on this same machine (Gentoo) and this OS does have a driver.

    Is it possible to get the driver for this card somewhere? Maybe Failing that is it possible to use Linux driver inside Solaris?

    On the kind of related side - I tried to connect a wire and run Driver Manager, but it does not want to finish. All controls are still disabled. Any idea?

    Thank you for any pointers you can provide.
