Hi Saro and prx...

From what I understand, only the Broadcom STA Linux driver (wl driver) here (one of the two at the very top) will support your adapters. Read the "Linux STA Readme" (at the very bottom) for confirmation of your chip's support.

Follow the instructions at the page rokytnji linked to and, hopefully, you should be good to go!

Regards...
