I have a fairly old 4306 at home which I was lent by my boss and I've been
struggling to get it working for the past week or two.  What I find is that
loads of firmwares which I try with bcm43xx-fwcutter complain about the
firmware being old but then when I get a firmware which is not too old the
device registers but doesn't seem to work -- iwlist can't see any access
points and when I set the essid it doesn't associate with the AP.

Can I be helpful as a tester?
