BCM4318 dmesg error

I can't seem to get my wireless card working and ran out of ideas here is what I've done so far
1) used cabextract on SP30676.exe to get bcmwl5.sys
2.) ran bcm43xx-fwcutter -w /lib/firmware bcmwl5.sys
3.) ls /lib/firmware to make sure files where there
4.) ran /sbin/depmod -a
5.) ran /sbin/modprobe bcm43xx
6.) ran dmesg | grep bcm43xx and here is where things get weird

I'm assuming this means that the card cannot initalize or something right? but now what?

which version of Fedora Core are you running?

For FC6, I recommend the following steps:

1) yum install bcm43xx-fwcutter
2) download and extract the file from the FC5 thread:
http://www.fedoraforum.org/forum/att...achmentid=7759
3) /usr/bin/bcm43xx-fwcutter -w /lib/firmware wl_apsta.o
4) /sbin/depmod -a && /sbin/modprobe bcm43xx
5) Turn on NetworkManager
