I am experiencing this same issue and was getting the same bcwml6.sys broadcom error. I open a case with Dell and so far they have replaced the wireless card with and new on and now they replaced it with an Intel 3945 ABG wireless card. I have upgraded and down graded device drivers on all network adapters and have even done a system restore to a time before the problem.
My laptop blue screens right when I make the connection to the wireless network and it crashes on both secure and unsecured wireless networks.
I know the wireless cards works becuase when I boot into safemode with network support I am able to connect to a wireless network just fine.
I'm have to assume that this is connected to software, but which one ? I don't want to re-install Vista becuase I have some many utilities installed.
Did anyone ever find a resolution for Vista Blue screening when wireless connection established?
