SSB_SPROM=$(find /sys/devices -name ssb_sprom)
and it returns nothing when I echo $SSB_SPROM
I've tried rebooting and re-running the mod probe, etc. The card I have is an HP and it works in Windows and Linux and is an 4322. I have a Dell XPS 13 that I am trying to set this up on.

likely u need to add grep and bridge number to find it.. i found this info in the ssbprom documentation not here.
LatinMcg, thanks for the reply. Is this my problem (see below, it is using WL) the output is from lspci -v. I found the corresponding device in my system but there is no ssb_sprom object in the folder -- I suspect that may be due to the fact that I am modprobing b43 and it is using wl. Am I out of my tree here?

Thanks for this guide!
I found a 4306-based PCI card today and while it worked fine in Tiger as-is, I went ahead and rebranded it to AirPort Extreme (106b:004e).

I've just tried this procedure with one BCM94322HM8L and Ubuntu 13.10 and it works like a charm. The only difference is the Broadcom firmware should be installed manually as it's written here and the b43 module should be restarted with sudo modprobe -r b43 && sudo modprobe b43. Now my question is: is it enough only the ccode parameter to be changed in order to get all channels, permited in the EU (using this list of region codes) or the regrev parameter should be edited as well (currently set to 0x0002) and if should be, is there a list of a possible regrev values that I can find somewhere?

I registered just to thank you for posting on this matter and to say that I managed to update my dell wifi card to an "airport" card.
there is a note I want to make
the working product/vendor id's listed in the previous posts / links
be careful when looking at them; they are reversed as listed as I almost mixed up the vendor id and product id when programmg the new one in.
