In order to enable the broadcom drivers, you have to have an internet connection first. So, you will definitely need an ethernet connection to do so.

I'm not certain, but perhaps the live CD includes the broadcom drivers on its disk, but doesn't install them as part of the process? I've only rarely seen something work in the Live CD but fail to work in a proper install.
