If 7.0 + builds accept b43 modules, no Broadcom components should be
enabled, compared to 6.7.1 (30apc671). '30apcb43' is from Hotlink posted
earlier in thread.
*for reference only
In your 7/0+ context, I needed to remove
/etc/modprobe.d/broadcom-sta-common.conf to allow b43 to be installed.
Adding modprob -a b43 to /etc/rc.local is an alternative.
* resolved finally *
7.02 LiveDVD installs b43 WIFI driver w/o ethernet hook-up, as did 6.71!
This was an essential 'fix' for the notebook crowd, thanks!
* posted w/7.02 LiveUSB
6.4.3 worked for you, 6.7.1 didn't.
