    Most distros have the bcm43xx driver installed by default.
    But, if like me you have the card on pci-e, that needs an extra patch.
    If that is your case, I would try Sabayon or SimplyMepis.
    Those are the only 2 that I have found that have detected and I have been able to get online with.
