  Broadcom (WIFI card/adapter/dongle)
  Mint (older version)
  Works fine with some minor problems
What works:

Is detected and driver is installed by hardware drivers.

What doesn't work:

cannot detect any networks, even when they would be in range running the same hardware on windows.

What was done to make it work:

Added b43-fwcutter package in synaptic. now works. however, sometimes loses internet connectivity for no apparent reason; despite reporting full signal.

Additional notes:

Did not test creating an ad-hoc network with the card.
