I am unable to build this on i686 (it's fine under x86_64)... Will begin searching for a fix now but always like to inform users and solicite feedback:

@Ashish - Glad it's working for you. Enjoy!

Ashish-Bansal commented on 2015-11-04 07:10

@graysky It works perfectly, no bugs at all. Now no more disconnects which I faced in last version :D

graysky commented on 2015-11-03 18:13

Please report back with problems if any ... I do not have this hardware any more.

Ashish-Bansal commented on 2015-11-03 18:04

Thanks graysky :)

That sucks. I do not have hardware that needs this driver anymore so I cannot test myself. I will follow the discussion in broadcom-wl but please post here as well in case I miss the solution once it becomes available.

The latest version seems to be buggy. It also make kernel panic on my system.
