    No output for
    # lsmod|egrep 'bcm43|b43'

    and I checked both of them are blacklisted.

    Also there is a difference in second to the last octet for the following output of wpa_supplicant

    Is there a possibility that 32-bit driver may work instead of 64-bit from Broadcom?

    are you on 32 or 64-bit? if 64-bit, then the 32-bit should work as well. if you're on 32-bit, then the 64-bit probably wouldn't work.

    failing that, it might be time to give NDISwrapper method a look.

    have you considered booting a 6.x Live CD version of CentOS (w/a recent kernel), to see if that driver/software would work?

    Mine is 64-bit and the driver I used is also 64-bit.
    I have dual boot system and the wireless adapter works fine for Windows 7... I can't use recent kernel because of the software I use does not support those.

    Is there any other way to get it working in linux... I have almost given up.
