    Get Broadcom STA driver...?

    Can I get the Broadcom STA driver Ubuntu usually recommends I download when installing Ubuntu several times in the past on it? It's a dell vostro 1400 and I've installed 10.4 and other Linux distros and it has always recommended a Broadcom STA driver when connected via ethernet cable to the internet; however, I have no way to connect it now so I was wondering if there was a place I could download the driver on my Win7 64-bit desktop computer and then put it on my laptop using USB removable storage. How would I go about installing the driver if it's downloaded on Win7 and Moved to the Ubuntu computer? Please let me know.
    "Uh, listen Jet..."
