You should try installing the driver from repos.I too have a broadcom
wifi chipset and it is working.Check this pci id of your wireless card
by lspci -vnn
and see if the vendor id : device id combination is mentioned in this list
if the combination is not mentioned then only you are in trouble,
keep your laptop connected with a lan wire and issue following commands

sudo apt-get install firmware-b43-installer
sudo apt-get install b43-fwcutter

after this reboot and it should work

Can you give a link to which driver is that you feel will work for your device?
