Broadcom 43xx Debian

For the past 2 days I have been trying to get my sister's laptop ( HP pavillion ze2000 ) running debian wirelessly. I've tried several methods and cannot seem to find the problem. I think I loaded the drivers correctly but i'm not entirely sure. Debian doesn't seem to be recognizing the wireless card. When I lspci the relevent code is:
0000:05:00.0 Ethernet controller: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL-8139/8139C/8139C+ (rev 10)
0000:05:02.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation: Unknown device 4318 (rev 02)
0000:05:09.0 CardBus bridge: Texas Instruments: Unknown device 8031
i think it may be when i install the driver with ndiswrapper, the ndiswrapper -m doesn't do anything. Please help, if you need more information just tell me.

I believe you'll need fwcutter and ndiswrapper.
Also have you run modprobe ndiswrapper?
