On the broadcom website I only saw drivers for the just the wired cards not the wifi. If the wifi drivers are there please point me in the right direction on the site.

Would help if you provided the brand name, and what you are using it for.

If this is a built in card, go to your manufacturer drivers.

You won't be able to find them b/c Broadcom doesn't host their wireless drivers on their website.

Your best best is to download your wireless drivers from your laptop manufacturer's website. Or try Googling around, oftentimes you may be able to find the drivers on some random website. It's easier if you know the Broadcom chipset in your laptop, otherwise googling around for the hardware ID (from Windows' Device Manager) should be enough.

Apparently they have a wifi driver called "Broadcom's OneDriver" that supports a huge range of their wireless cards

Impossible to find the drivers other than on your manufacture's site.

I was checking to see in my drivers were the latest for my laptop because the ones on the manufacturer's site hadn't been updated in a long time so I thought maybe they were out of date. Googled around like a moron for ages.
