this is a very popular NIC, i tried searching the forum for threads including the nic's model# (WMP300N) but that's the only one I found. So im asking for some information.

Newer kernels will automatically use the latest Linux driver for Broadcom wireless, b43. Older kernels use the bcm43xx driver. You still need to have firmware for the card to work correctly.
