Hi Ether, rufwoof is correct. Try the wl driver. This is also documented in Fatdog 810 Help (the blue question mark desktop icon). Start the help window and search for "broadcom", select "broadcom wireless", and you will read:

Broadcom wireless
If your Broadcom wireless card does not work with the driver included with the Linux kernel, Fatdog64 includes the proprietary Broadcom ‘wl’ driver.
To enable this open the Control Panel and click on the System tab.
Then click on Manage Servers and Services, and then BC-wl.
Click Start to start using this driver now and Enable to use this driver at every boot.
After that you will want to right-click on the Wpa-gui icon in the tray and select Restart Connection.

Hi Ether.

Note that there's a later thread for Fatdog 810 here - better to post there nowadays.

Try opening Control Panel, System tab, double click the Manage Servers and Services icon, and there's a BC-wl item in that list that if you enable that to start at bootup and then reboot ... and see if that works for you.

That worked. Thank you!

Thanks. It works now. And I'll make a note to myself to check out that help window if I have another issue.
