    To complete the thread (a bit/per approximation to perfection ;-) ):

    only the PCI IDs are important. They are what the kernel uses in loading drivers.

    If a given device is listed as working with b43 or b43legacy, then only the
    firmware is needed.

    @ caf4926, Thanks man! I've been working at this for hours, combing the internet for any info on BCM4313. I was just about to give up when I found this post, and I finally solved it.

    This is my first post here and I wanted to let everybody know how things worked out for me.
    I just received a Dell Inspiron Mini 10v (1011). I installed openSUSE KDE 11.4 and I had trouble with my wireless (it would not show up under "Network Connections"). The Wireless tab would be grayed out.
    When I run the command 'lspci' it shows up as a Broadcom BCM4322.
    I followed the instructions in this thread and now the Wireless tab is accessible and I am able to connect to my wireless network at home.
    My card is also listed as 14e4:432b.
    I hope this can help someone else out who is starting out.
