I'm glad you got it working, but I am really confused as to why you had to use NDISwrapper. I had three laptops with a 4306 and neither required it. However your wireless working is all that matters.

Hi goumba,
Yes I tried the drivers and had no luck. I am new and was not sure what the commands were and how they worked. Many times I thought I had solved the problem but it didn't work. Maybe if I had a little more experience I would have gotten it? Not sure. But after seeing the Youtube video it seemed so simple. Also when I went to the Broadcom site It had the windows driver right there. It was so easy. and it worked even with the function key to turn on the wifi light. I have learned a lot in the process and will still be learning. Thanks for your help.
