You could try to unload the module for the wireless card and load it 
again. I don't know if that really works, but it is at least worth a try. 
From what you wrote I suppose you use the b43 kernel module. You can 
enter these commands in a terminal after you have installed the firmware:

sudo rmmod b43
sudo modprobe b43
