First of all: HAPPY 19th BIRTHDAY, DEBIAN!
Recently, I have reinstalled Debian Wheezy in my notebook, and as usual I had problems with my NVidia graphics and Broadcom wireless cards.
The NVidia graphics card is for another post. In this one i`ll show you how to get your Broadcom wireless card to work in Debian Wheezy (which is frozen, by the time i write this), with kernel 3.2
My wireles card is: Broadcom Corporation BCM4312 802.11b/g LP-PHY (rev 01)
I tried to compile the driver, as i usually do (as you can see in an older post i wrote about it), but nothing happened. I tried to follow the steps in Debian`s wiki and in one of those steps i got a message saying that the driver did not support the kernel version i was using.
So i went to ask Google about it and i found out that it really has no support for kernel 3.2, yet. But luckly we have another way to get it working.
All you have to do is add the necessary repositories to the sources.list, update your packages list and install the firmware package:
# echo "deb http://ftp.br.debian.org/debian/ wheezy main contrib non-free" >> /etc/apt/sources.list
# apt-get update
# apt-get install firmware-linux-nonfree firmware-b43-installer # or firmware-b43-lpphy-installer
And there it is! Or, at least, it should be.
The firmware package to install will depend on your Broadcom wireless card. You can check you cards with the lspci command.
