    Broadcom Help!

    I want to try to use my Broadcom B4318 wireless card using something other than System >> Administration >> Hardware Drivers.
    I found the following quote about my wireless card from here but now I don't know what to do.
    There are four tests about my wireless card, which one do I follow and how?
