I have the exact same wireless chip in my laptop machine. The
ndiswrapper kernel module is needed to use this chip since the folks at
Broadcomm show little interest in supporting us Linux users. Also, the
version of ndiswrapper found in the Hoary repositories didn't work for
me and many other BCM4306 users. For this reason, I made a wiki page
that explains and goes through the steps needed to compile the module
from source, and install it.

The wiki page is located 'here'
