This is accomplished different ways by different Linux distributions, so please read the section for yours for the best results. I have a Dell D630 with Ubuntu 12.04 and Broadcom Wireless card 4312.I'm sure your update to the instructions (for 12.04) will be a help others ..Instructions to install the package may be found below. The b43legacy infrastructure is composed of two parts.The first is the firmware-b43legacy-installer package. This is simply a script to extract and install the b43legacy driver firmware, maintained by the Ubuntu community.
