If you read my comment carefully, in context, you'll see that
I mention this merely as an example of a case where calling it
"broadcom" or even the vendor and device ID, isn't enough
to identify the hardware.  This list and ndiswrapper list
are peppered with too many reports (e.g. "broadcom works for me")
that treat these like they are all alike, while I have proof
that the rev number can be very significant.  That degree of
detail is missing in these reports of what works, including
those on the web site you listed (sometimes there, sometimes not).

I did respond to another thread on ndiswrapper about this
but I guess your email is still not working.
