Broadcom 440x Ethernet Drivers


Hey guys I'm on Solaris 10 on a Dell Inspiron 6000. I can't seem to find a driver for the Broadcom 440x. If you could help me find a driver for my wireless card that would be awesome too! Please let me know if you know where I could download it, and maybe let me know how to install it, I'm kinda a newbie!

Since this is a Solaris question and probably would be better in that forum, I've asked the mods to move this.
