My car won't start either any suggestions? Seriously Without knowing what the hardware is there is very little chance of anybody being able to help you. Really you ought to at least think about how you could help us to help you, its simple courtesy

ndiswrapper is your best bet. There is a native broadcom driver under development which works, but I'm still using ndiswrapper with no problems.
