Please describe what you are meaning about the b43/ssb modules or wl option as I don't understand what you are meaning. I am running Debian without Gnome, KDE, etc...

Anyway, you have the b43/ssb modules option with firmware, or
the wl option, available with the packages broadcom-sta-common
and broadcom-sta-source. You have to build the packages with the second
option. Plus, it's "less open", as it has some binary pieces. It's the
same driver than the one offerred "officialy".
I have to add that I have far better performance with the wl module.
