I've got a notebook here with built in Broadcom wireless, and before I mess
this up too much I though I would ask for some tips in getting this working.

I did lspci and got the model like so:

Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4328 802.11a/b/g/n (rev 03)

I found this article:

which seemed to indicate that this was going to be a pretty trivial process.
Installing the b43-fwcutter and wireless-tools went off without error and the
firmware was extracted, but so far I've got no wireless.

I followed the suggested troubleshooting steps, excluding manual installation
of the firmware, no answers.
