[I'm assuming wifi lock is turned off while following above steps.]
Hrm... Looking at you "lspci -vnn" output, here[1] it tells that you
should be using b43. Fine. BTW, how did you install b43 and related
firmwares? Which steps did you follow? Did you try manually installing a
vanilla kernel with related modules turned on and required firmwares
