yes
free driver used:

Description:

Uses the ssb kernel module and dmesg says that it is missing free firmware. It doesn't seem to go to wireless power saving mode in powertop. If you saturate the link and the connection drops, you can try toggling the wifi hardware switch but once in a while it won't connect again and you'll need to sudo rmmod b43 ssb && sudo modprobe -a b43 ssb...

Integrated in the Dell Latitude D610 (PP11L) notebook, the Dell Latitude D510, and some HP dv5000 notebooks.
