Hello everybody,

actually Ubuntu also distributes Broadcom's driver in their default repositories, so these chipsets work out-of-the-box.

I'm always ready to collaborate on tutorials, e-mail me. Maybe we could even write a shell script which could dowload and install Broadcom's driver according to our instructions.

Yours faithfully,
Gytis Repecka
