    The Linksys WMP54g wireless PCI card uses the Broadcom chipset. It has no official Linux driver, but I've heard you can get it working with ndiswrapper.

    I've actually never used ndiswrapper myself, but I'm almost positive there's at least a couple of threads on it here in this forum. If nothing else, a google search for "how to" and "ndiswrapper" will probably help.
