[Bug 1520875] Re: 14e4:43a3 [MacBook8, 1] Wireless does not work


Moepi has the following info on the wireless stuff:


Wireless: I’m testing a new firmware built that seems to solve the
remaining issues. It has to be tested another couple of days but given
the effort Broadcom was taking in the past 2 weeks it is more than
likely that we can consider wireless as fully supported. I really hope
they can release it soon.
