Correct, elrepo isn't able to freely redistribute the drivers due 
Broadcom's licensing, but does provide instructions and a SRPM (minus 
tarball) for you to build yourself.

Alternatively, for $8 you can purchase an adaptor that is natively 
supported and will work out of the box:



The above adaptor is based on the Realtek RTL8188CUS chipset and uses 
the rtl8192cu kernel driver.
