I've some polish user that has Medion (???) notebook with "BCM4306KFB
HS00328 P20 702910 M2" (citation from spec).

This card worked fine in Windows and few days ago user decided to
install openSUSE 11.2 ( AFAIK he removed Windows and has
openSUSE now only.

The problem is that system does not detect his WiFi card at all. lspci shows:

He put dmesg on pastebin, which I prefer to just attach.

I've googled only one similar problem:

Do you have any ideas what may this be?
