Doh! Sorry Mohamed - ignore my previous response - it was from my
desktop machine (the one on which I'm writing these emails) and NOT the
laptop!

The responses from the laptop are below:

[[email protected] ~]$ lsmod | egrep "b43|wl"
b43                   128888  0 
rfkill                 11284  3 rfkill_input,b43
mac80211              214264  1 b43
cfg80211               62472  2 b43,mac80211
input_polldev           4128  1 b43
ssb                    43600  1 b43
