Question about Broadcom BCM94306MP - IEEE 802.11b/g Wireless Internal Mini-PCI Card (BCM94306MPWIRELESS)
I got a new compaq presario v6608au and its specs are -- 1 GB RAM, 160HDD,AMD TURIN 64X2 PROCESSOR, NVIDIA MCP67 chipset, BROADCOM 94311 wireless card and pre-installed windows vista Home Basic.
I installed Ubuntu 7.10 on dual boot and I had the problem with wireless driver and Iam unable to access any wireless networks. I tried to install windows drivers using NDISWrapper but the XP driver that I downloaded was a .exe file and so Iam unable to extract it to find the .INF file. Can you suggest me what to do????
I got my BCM94311 wireless card working on an HP DV6000 laptop using the guide here:

I am currently using Linux on a Compaq C500 with a Broadcom wireless adapter. Sounds like your wireless adapter is on of the ones that uses the b43 module like mine.
Aside from using the correct module, you also need a firmware image. Instructions can be found at: http://linuxwireless.org/en/users/Drivers/b43
Hope this helps and good luck with Linux! Once you fully switch to Linux you'll never go back to crappy M$ products!
