I mean, which version of the Broadcom chip?
I haven't used anything Broadcom in years. Or anything else that didn't have an open driver. So I can't really recall how you go about finding that. I know some information can be garnered through dmesg (just that on the commandline, or dmesg | more to make it scroll on your command). If it's usb lsusb can provide info, or lspci if it's a PCI device. Whether or not that will get enough of the right information, though, is something I can't know. Often it will, sometimes it won't. If you also use it on Winders, you can take a look there to see what it tells you it is.
