I have a toshiba laptop which has centrino logo on it with a 945 chipset from 2007.
I switched the intel 945 wifi card to a broadcom device bcm 4312 LP/PHY. I have managed to make it detectable under windows 7 and fedora(after driver installation) but it never connects to any routers in windows 7 or fedora. I don't understand why? Is there any hardware lock or the BIOS that doesn't allow non-intel wifi devices not to connect to the router?
Anyone have any ideas on this centrino chipset?
By the way the physical button for wireless is always ON.
