Broadcom BCM43224 802.11a/b/g/n wireless network adapter
--------------------------------------------------------
The Broadcom Corporation BCM43224 802.11a/b/g/n wireless network
adapter is known to not be able to
[[spoof its MAC address|doc/first_steps/startup_options/mac_spoofing]]. Tails
enables MAC spoofing by default, and will disable any network adapter
it fails to spoof. To make it work you must
[[disable Tails' MAC spoofing feature|doc/first_steps/startup_options/mac_spoofing#disable]];
please read the documentation carefully and make sure you understand
the consequences before doing so.
This network adapter can, for instance, be found in the MacBook Air 5,1.
