      supported? no
      BCM4322

please post lspci for us to verify if it is supported by any driver around.
given current bits of information it is NOT supported by b43 or bcm43xx drivers even if you manage to use wired network to get b43/b43legacy firmware

you can easily check if it works

you need a package called b43-fwcutter, then get a recent firmware from page mentioned in it's manual, and if it works at all it may just start working.

do not hold me responsible if bcmwl installation did irreversible damage like deleting b43 module etc.
also use latest version of ubuntu, older may have older wireless core which has no idea it is compatible with your PCI adapter

backtrack is not ubuntu.
it has old drivers that do not support b43 card present on your system.
using broadcom-wl drivers does not suit purpose of backtrack.

your card requires Linux kernel v3.1 or better.

Driver is present on OpenSUSE 12.1 ( a developer version on their site)
Just give it a try. In liveUSB config you can install some of less sophisticated components of BT5, might be enough to try out.
