Exactly the same problem wit ha friend of mine who has a acer aspire eeepc
or however it's called. he installed ubuntu but couldn't use the network
card becausee of a bug with the card ids. I helped him install latest
kernel but then wireless was not working. I think his id was 4315.
Reading about the issue I downloaded the wl driver from the broadcom
webpage compiled/installed and it worked.
So currently this should be the solution
