I have the following card:

siba_bwn0 at pci0:12:0:0:  class=0x028000 card=0x000c1028 chip=0x431514e4
rev=0x01 hdr=0x00
  vendor     = 'Broadcom Corporation'
  device     = 'Broadcom Wireless b/g (BCM4315/BCM22062000)'
  class      = network

And it doesn't work with bwn driver (perhaps that's a configuration
issue though) on 8.1.
