To be entirely frank (and having to say this sucks because of the large
of work that has gone into making the native driver for Linux), I gave up
even TRYING to get my laptop's wireless card (Broadcom bcm4320) and just
Ndiswrapper with the Windows driver.

The agrivating part of this is that it works fine in FC6 with the old
firmware.  This is a recient change that breaks anyone with the pre-4
chipset revision.

Did you try blacklisting the bcm43xx-mac80211 driver?

That finally worked. (After backreving the firmware and fixing the eth1 alias.) Also helps if you have a working wifi source to test off of. (The downtown free access is pretty worthless in Portland.)
