There are no Broadcom wireless drivers in 7.1. The command 'apropos
broadcom' only returns a couple of wired ethernet drivers, a crypto
accellerator and a bleutooth device.

DragonFly BSD has a bwi(4) driver that supports the BCM430x/4318, but no
mention of the 4311.

Both the RealTek 8139 and the RealTek 8139C+ should work, but they use
different drivers. See re(4) and rl(4).
