bcm43xx ubuntu hardy problem downloading firmware

The documentation says thet hardy includes the BCM-43xx driver but the firmware has to be downloaded. I added the two lines to /etc/apt/sources, then ran aptitude -i. I got a messake that hardy-cafuego wouldn't download because the public key isn't available NO-PUBKEY 81600957AF425CB5. What can I do to get the firmware?
