I would first download the very latest kernel and build that to see if 
it works

do an lscpi -vv and post the results for the network card

did you have a look at atrpms or dag to see if they have a kernel module 
already built ?

e.g.
http://rpm.pbone.net/index.php3/stat/11/vendor/1800/com/Broadcom%20Corporation.html
