I made a 64bit wl driver for 4.14.35, but it compiled with warnings - it loaded, but may crash in use. I can't test it so definitely use at own risk.
Update: confirmed working.

UPDATE: Alternate wl module for Xenialpup64 7.5 k 4.9.58 made. Confirmed working.
Get it here: .http://s000.tinyupload.com/?file_id=07493625421564471669
Need to skiplist b43, bcma, brcmsmac, ssb (edit /etc/rc.d/MODULESCONFIG at about line 24 - see example pics below).
Then copy wl.ko to /lib/modules/4.9.58/kernel/drivers/net/wireless. Then run depmod in terminal. Then reboot.

I have made broadcom drivers for my latest 64bit kernels 4.14.69 (slackware derivatives) and 4.14.79 (ubuntu derivatives). They compiled with warnings & I can't test them (gave that pc to charity), so use at own risk.
Install appropriate .pet & skiplist b43, bcma, brcmsmac, ssb (edit /etc/rc.d/MODULESCONFIG at about line 24 - adding those 4 items, with a space either side, to the line beginning SKIPLIST= ). Then in a terminal run depmod then modprobe wl & restart X.

Drivers are KERNEL-SPECIFIC as well as 32bit/64bit specific. You may find the driver you want here (use broadcom_wl or broadcom-sta .pet files):

As I use 64bit, I never got around to downloading the 32 bit version & its devx & kernel source, needed for compiling. Peebee may have done so, but I haven't seen it.
