Incorrect wireless drivers are selected in the wgt634u profile in both Backfire and Trunk. The b43 and b43legacy drivers are selected instead of madwifi or ath5k

The binary distribution for all current backfire releases and RCs also includes the wrong drivers. Users must install madwifi or ath5k drivers manually

See: target/linux/brcm47xx/profiles/

However, I have noticed that changing from one profile to another can fail to update the associated package selections. I don't know why.

rm .config .config.old
make menuconfig (select profile broadcom-b43, exit-saving)
cp .config config-default
make menuconfig (change profile to wgt634u, exit-saving)
cp .config config-change-to-wgt634u
rm .config .config.old
make menuconfig (select profile wgt634u, exit-saving)
cp .config config-wgt634u
diff -u config-wgt634u config-change-to-wgt634u

  • Resolution set to wontfix
  • Status changed from new to closed

Changing from one profile to another requires a config reset. I don't see any good way of fixing that.
