Not at all sure.  However 'firmware' is a misleading term; I
think it's really microcode that the driver needs to load onto
the controller (which the WinXP driver will do).

Just found:

Thanks for this reference.  I did the recommended things, but
I still have a configuration error.  If I boot with the
wireless on, I get:

   Jul 13 21:50:16 mbrc35 NetworkManager: nm_device_is_802_3_ethernet:
      assertion `dev != NULL' failed
   Jul 13 21:50:16 mbrc35 NetworkManager: nm_device_is_802_11_wireless:
      assertion `dev != NULL' failed

Note that I had changed the device name from the incorrect eth1 to
wlan0.  This required some hand file editing, because the change
did not propagate to all gui places.  It appears I am missing a
device name somewhere.



Even if the eth1 thing really bugs you I'd try it with
that first (if you can revert your changes by hand),
then try changing it once it's working.  Afraid I don't
know what the device name should be if this isn't the
cause.
