Kernel

The stock Arch kernel works just fine.

Networking

My Network was extremly slow. This was cause a ipv6-Problem. After adding the following line in the /etc/modprobe.conf everything was ok.

alias net-pf-10 off

Wired

Works out of the box.

Wireless

Broadcom Corporation BCM4311

First I installed yaourt: Yaourt

Then I installed the package broadcom-wl:

yaourt -S broadcom-wl

Then I edited the MODULES in the file /etc/rc.conf:

MODULES=(!b43 wl b44 ... )

!b43 means that this module shouldn't be loaded wl is the new module b44 is the wired network The sequence must be correct

For getting the network up automatically I copied the file /etc/network.d/examples/wpa.example (take the example-file for your use-case) into the directory /etc/network.d/ and renamed it (eg. wlan_profile) and edited it. Then I added the following line to /etc/rc.conf:

NETWORKS=(wlan_profile)



Modem

I have not tried the modem to see if it works.

Xorg
