i've linked on linuxonlaptop my installation  but it's in italian...
i've tried to use the kernel module bcm43xx on my vanilla 22.214.171.124 kernel but it won't work...
if "lspci" tells you about this hardware
03:00.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation Dell Wireless 1390 WLAN Mini-PCI Card (rev 01)
you can use wifi with ndiswrapper and this  windows driver...
you've to execute these commands, briefly:
# m-a prepare
# m-a a-i ndiswrapper
# depmod -a
# modprobe ndiswrapper
# unzip -a /path/to/downloaded/R151517.EXE
# cd /path/to/downloaded/ && cd to the created directory form extraction and in subdirectory DRIVER
# ndiswrapper -i bcmwl5.inf
