I've done a lot of fighting with wireless cards and my previous card
was a broadcom.  These steps might help.  (by the way, I'm not in CO,
I'm your neighbor to the West in UT.  Hope that is acceptable.)

Try to install the "bcm43xx-fwcutter" package (or check your System >
Admin > Restricted Drivers).
Post installation look for the bcm43xx-fwcutter.sh script (in
/usr/share/doc/ someplace iirc).

Depending on the model card you have it should work.. but we can keep
trying other options if it does not.
