Ken, thanks, I'm aware of that. The problem is that my particular
version of the card - BCM4318 - is not completely supported yet.
According to this page: http://bcm43xx.berlios.de/?go=devices it is
"Unstable (transmission power issues, work in progress)"

I haven't tried it in 10.2, but in 10.1 I have tried it with a fresh
vanilla kernel, and it didn't work. Ndiswrapper, on the other hand,
works very well.
