I've had nothing but trouble with all the Broadcom chips I have ever used with Linux and the reverse-engineered kernel drivers.
I'd suggest just using ndiswrapper and the Windows drivers; It's worked for me for years.

Make sure that you have the bcm43xx module in the kernel.
If that doesn't work you should just do as Scratch_ suggests.
I have a broadcomm chip in my laptop, and only Sabayon and Mepis 6.5+ have been able to configure it correctly.How to know if you are a geek.
