By the way I found that I don't have broadcom-wl-kmp-desktop installed as I
have 2.6.33 kernel(yes have to use it as default kernel doesn't support my
intel 5 series hd graphics). I couldn't find appropriate package for this
kernel.

I switch to 11.3 when you use 2.6.33 kernel.

It would be better to download [1] and compile the Broadcom driver then. You
will need to install the pattern devel_kernel [2] before you "make" the driver.
The BUILD and INSTALL is strait-forward as described in README.txt.
