Yes, but i noticed that on boot, your wifi card identifies itself as 
" eth1: Broadcom BCM4315 802.11 Wireless Controller " .
If this is its actual model, then you may have an (by now, hopefully) 
unsupported card. :(

Also, you may want to try with different firmwares than the used by the b43-
fwcutter package, to see if works.
Look for the bcmwl5.sys in the 'net and use b43-fwcutter to extract the firmware 
off of it.
As a last resort, you can use ndiswrapper .

And please, don't top-post your answers. ;)
