Description Francesco Piccinno 2011-08-31 18:18:35 UTC
I have a notebook (HP TC4400) which has a BCM5750 ethernet card inside. The ouput of lspci is:

08:00.0 Ethernet controller [0200]: Broadcom Corporation NetXtreme BCM5750M Gigabit Ethernet [14e4:167c]

Commit 67b284d476bcb3d100e946da23d6cf9acfd0465c removed the support for this device. I wish to have the support for this network card back again. Thanks!
