    I'd say go for it. Or search for Broadcom 802.11n Ubuntu if you can't get it working.

    I doubt Injection will work with the defautl broadcom drivers though.

    You will need to provide more information than that if you expect anyone to help you. I don't mean to sound rude, but always provide as much information as possible.

    You need to find out what the name of your wireless card is, the chipset it uses and what driver (if any) it is using.

    Some help to determine the chipset: compatibility_drivers [Aircrack-ng]
    What happens when you type: iwconfig

    Also, if you plan on using the internal wireless card, you must be booting into BT4. i.e. you can't use VMWare.

    I have done an apt-get upgrade before out of interest but then quickly reverted back to before the upgrade.

    If I remember correctly there was a Broadcom driver update included in the updates. I suspect that is the problem.
