If the wiki says that it is unsupported, then that is correct. That list is kept 
up to date.

Firmware is not your problem. It is the basic drivers not supporting that new 
hardware. Using b43-fwcutter will do no good.

I'm sure that you are aware that only Broadcom can debug the proprietary driver.

I have added the wireless mailing list to get additional exposure.
