I am currently running linux on my laptop with the broadcom card in it,
but I had a couple problems when I first set it up in FreeBSD. Here are
some tips I can give, hopefully they'll help. First I had 2 inf files
available and I needed to use the ascii one (bcmwl5a.inf) and the sys
file (bcmwl5.sys) with the other file (bcmwl5.inf) it appeared to work,
but no love. This was about a year ago, so it may not matter now.

The other main thing is to make sure your wireless is physically on. On
my laptop I need to hold the Fn button and hit F2. That turns the
wireless on and off. However, the first time I needed to go into the
BIOS and set it to ON instead of Last Used (or LAST STATE, or somesuch)
that leaves it in the last state it was in. After it started once, I
could then change the BIOS back and it worked properly after that.

Finally, make sure you are following the correct directions, the last
time I needed to use NDIS I set it all up and it seemed to be correct,
but you needed to use some wizard instead of the "classic" way. This
also may have changed since then (again about a year ago).
