$ sudo apt-get install bcm43xx-fwcutter
$ sudo dpkg-reconfigure bcm43xx-fwcutter
(select "yes" when asked if you want to download the firmware)
$ sudo reboot

When the machine comes back up, you should be able to use wireless on, I
think, eth1. It should also work with network manager, if you have that
installed.

Bear in mind there is a problem with the bcm43xx drivers on edgy:
