Question Makefile for brcm80211

I need to install brcm80211 module for wifi in my dell N4010 model. Iam using linux kernel3.2. During kernel installation i have not compiled the brcm80211. How to configure the make file inside the brcm80211 source directory of linux 3.2 for installing it as a kernel module?
My ubuntu version is 10.10 in which i have manually compiled and installed the linux kernel 3.2.
Since there is a makefile for each driver in kernel source, pls help me in modifying the makefile of brcm80211 linux kernel 3.2 for compiling and installing the brcm80211 driver as kernel module.
