WiFi connection and Emachines M6805

Does anyone know where to get the drivers for the wireless card built into the Emachines 6805? It is a broadcom chipset.

If you follow the directions while installing ndiswrapper, you will be led to a link that is acutally on HP's web site. If you download the drivers (windows drivers), then open the driver file with wine, you can use either of the drivers and they work great. I have the same machine, and this has been working for me.

Good luck
