ubuntu kernel makes bcm43xx firmware too old


after a recent dist-upgrade the kernel went to 2.6.20-8-generic and now when I dmesg because I cant use my wireless it shows:

bcm43xx: YOUR FIRMWARE IS TOO OLD. Firmware from binary drivers older than version 4.x is unsupported. You must upgrade your firmware files.

any suggestions?
