Hi,
I want you to try something that is somewhat different.

I went over that document once more:
http://linuxwireless.org/en/users/Drivers/b43#fw-b43-lp

PCI table verification.
That's your chip and driver:
...
14e4:4315 supported 2.6.33 and later (PIO mode) BCM4312 b/g LP b43
...

You have the required kernel ?
[[email protected] jb]# uname -r
2.6.33.6-147.2.4.fc13.i686

Instead of following the info under Fedora, I checked Mandriva as well and
discovered some similarities to your chip:
...
device firmware installation
...
Mandriva
...
There are different versions of firmware and tools you may need: 
...
b43   Linux-2.6.31 and newer, compat-             4.178.10.4   ....  GO
      wireless-2.6 package, current GIT trees -              
      for LP-PHY cards 
...
When you press the GO link you get to:
...
You are using the b43 driver with an LP-PHY card (e.g. BCM4312)
...
Install b43-fwcutter, then use version 4.174.64.19 of Broadcom's proprietary
driver. (The tarball is mislabeled as "4.178.10.4", but it is actually
4.174.64.19.)
...
Let's do the down load and extraction operation:
wget http://downloads.openwrt.org/sources/broadcom-wl-4.178.10.4.tar.bz2
tar xjf broadcom-wl-4.178.10.4.tar.bz2
cd broadcom-wl-4.178.10.4/linux
$ su
# b43-fwcutter -w /lib/firmware/ wl_apsta.o

The extraction worked for me !
Well, try it and reboot now.

Your dmesg should be more informative than the one you passed to us
previously.
JB
