Windows driver
these might work, maybe
5.100.68.46 (possibly 6.30.145.26) for XP
note: 5GHz support disabled as it seems to be broken - replace BCM43XNGD with BCM43XNMD in .inf file for your device if you wish to test it
or
5.100.68.46 for Vista/Win7
not working? let me know

Antenna connector: none

abgn, 2x2:2

OUI: C0:D9:62 (-, 1 W, 2012), E0:CE:C3 (-, 1 W, 2012)

This module would appear to be for certain Toshiba HDTVs.

The data lines for this device seem to be swapped.

Green = Data +, White = Data -

This device does work with brcmfmac, to some extent (5 GHz channels don't work), after the device ID is added at runtime (modprobe brcmfmac; echo "0930 0a0b" > /sys/bus/usb/drivers/brcmfmac/new_id;).
