Notes

¹ The Broadcom Ethernet doesn't work with kernel < 2.6.30. You experience problems of “eth0 link down” due to a bug of the specific module.
² Work fine with the iwlwifi 5000 firmware that you can find in the non-free debian repository. (remember to reboot the machine after firmware installation).
