I'm using the Broadcom BCM94306 mini-pci wifi card in my HP zd7000.
As stated elsewhere, NDIS doesn't support certain configuration

step down, no AP's were found, let alone channels, essid, etc.

I added the following:
A couple of extra comments;
The SSID doesn't work/stick. I'm still running iwconfig through other scripts.
The 'Rate' is twice actual Mbps.
Hope this helps.
perl -e 'print $i=pack(c5,(41*2),sqrt(7056),(unpack(c,H)-2),oct(115),10);'
