What? It is supported by Lion. (See comment page 6)

EDIT: Try to add your device-id in IO80211Family.kext/Contents/PlugIns/AppleAirPortBrcm43224.kext/Contents/Info.plist

Add in the key
   <key>IONameMatch</key>
   <array>
this string
    <string>pci14e4,4353</string>

All the strings in the key are devices. Every device is listed with a vendor code (14e4: Broadcom) and a device code (4353: BCM43224AG)

What? You should go to IO80211Family.kext/Contents/PlugIns/AppleAirPortBrcm43224.kext/Contents/Info.plist and add in the key 'IONameMatch' your id as here:
    <string>pci14e4,4353</string>

No luck, the kext did nothing. I tried fix permission and reboot but the wifi card is not working.
