One note: I tried these instructions while running off a usb drive, but firmware-b43-installer couldn't be found (b43-fwcutter was located and installed). I then did a clean install of 11.10 on my Inspiron E1705, followed the instructions above, and voila! Moral to story: this might not work with a live CD or USB... you may have to do a full install. Thanks so much!!
