    You need to install the broadcom-wl and broadcom-wl-kmp-YOURKERNELFLAVOR packages from the Packman repositories. These provide the drivers and install scripts for your card. Reboot after install of the drivers, and your NIC should work.

    Yes
    I wasn't sure if b43 or wl was best

    Here is a broadcom-wl guide

    That is an N PHY. Wl is needed.

    Just for the record:

    Code:
    /lib/modules/2.6.31.14-0.1-desktop/updates/drivers/staging/brcm80211/brcm80211.ko
    alias:          pci:v000014E4d00004353sv*sd*bc*sc*i*
    --
    /lib/modules/2.6.31.14-0.1-desktop/updates/wl.ko
    alias:          pci:v000014E4d00004353sv*sd*bc*sc*i*
    So at least for the future, brcm80211 will be another candidate.
