@krop
I had the same problem as Jimmey described. My broadcom 4306 v03 was working under Gutsy (probably with bcm43xx), and then I did as suggested 
- Blacklisted b43 and ssb in /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist
- authorized bcm43xx
- reinstalled the bcm43xx-firmware
reboot; wireless did not work

then with b43 and ssb still blacklisted I did
sudo modprobe -r bcm43xx
sudo modprobe bcm43xx
still a no go

and then as he suggested afterward
sudo modprobe -r bcm43xx
sudo modprobe b43
sudo modprobe -r b43
sudo modprobe bcm43xx

this time it started -> I am actually posting with the wireless ;)

This is a bad method, is there a workaround?
