it would be interesting to know if your card works with the open
firmware for b43, rather than using ndiswrapper or the Broadcom 'wl'
driver. do 'yum install b43-openfwwf', reboot and see if the card works
(I think you may need to use it without encryption, at present).

from all recent indications they shouldn't be, hopefully. things seem to
be working reasonably well on most cards.

no particular walkthrough, really, but you could refer to the test days
we ran this cycle:

https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/QA/Fedora_12_test_days

any of the tests from any of those pages you can do is always useful.
