That statement is not entirely correct. For example I have a 5-year old Acer Ferrari 3000 laptop which has a Broadcom 4306 wireless LAN controller, and it works perfectly with SL 4.0-r1 on unencrypted, WEP-encrypted and WPA-encrypted networks (I've not tried it with WPA2 yet). The current status for the open-source driver for the 43xx family is given on the page http://bcm43xx.berlios.de/?go=devices. (The part closed-source ("hybrid") driver from Broadcom supports the 4311, 4312, 4321 and 4322 members of the family.)
