OK, the steps indicated there have now worked for me. A couple of things
were needed.

1. Although this is on a 64-bit computer I'm using a 32-bit kernel so I
have to use the 32-bit driver (obvious to everyone but me, I expect).

2. I had problems loading the wl module. Then for some reason kernel
2.6.31-1-686-bigmem started locking up X for me. So I removed it and
also removed the relevant module in /lib, followed by a reinstall of the
kernel and linux-headers. This time everything worked correctly: I
followed the steps in the link above, rebooted, and wireless came up
flawlessly.

So although I'm not clear what the difficulty was initially (slight
corruption in downloads?) it's fine now.

there is a 64bit kernel for the 32bit debian userspace just to confuse
