Out of the Broadcom frying pan (DELL) to the fire (HP Envy)

I've finally got my new laptop and I've managed to get F20 installed on it.

I've got a number of problems to work on yet - web cam and touch pad buttons - 
but my main problem is the WIFI.

On the DELL I used broadcom-wl and kmod-wl and had to update it every time I 
upgraded the kernel, but it worked,

Now I've got a newer Broadcom chipset on the replacement laptop and so far all 
I can Google is people who've failed to get it working.

Can anyone point me to a post where it's worked.  Below is the lspdi output.


[root at localhost ~]# lspci -nn -d 14e4:
