Linux noob Filter: Is there a linux with REAL good wireless support (integrated Broadcom) and either Enlightenment or KDE as the defalt desktop? I _REALLY_ wanna get into Linux, but it's hard without a wireless connection.

Well, as the topic says, I am quite intrested in Linux, and I'm willing to limp around with many things not working right for a while 'till I get the hang of it, but I NEED wireless access. Well, at least for the long term. I can do wired for a few days, but it's too much of a pain with my setup. Buying an external wireless card isn't really a good option.
I have no problem with NDISWrapper, I just don't seem to have any luck with it (likely my own stupidity).
I've tried Kubuntu, Elive, Ultima Linux, and now PCLinuxOS, and still no luck. I don't mind starting out with a "noob" distro (no Gentoo for me :D), but what ever it is, wireless has to work for me.
Any recomendations? Or failing that, if I post up my hardware and the files in the driver folder on my CD, can some one hold my hand so to speak?
