That's the same card I have in my machine.
it's also known as a Broadcom 4312. yes the sta driver is correct for this card and works fine.
you don't need to down load it and install manually if you can get a temporary hardwire lan connection simply go to Menu> Addition Drivers and install it from there.
from the release notesAdditional drivers
To install additional drivers, please run the "Software Sources" tool from "Menu->Preferences->Software Sources" and click on the "Additional Drivers" tab. The tool used in previous versions of Linux Mint (Jockey) was discontinued upstream in Ubuntu.

I was able to enable the propietary driver and get wireless access. However, after rebooting(soft or hard), the card disappears or is not detected by the system. However, under Software Sources. the setting for enabling the card is still showing as visible and enabled. To get it working again, I need to disable it. reboot then renable which is not desireable.
Is anyone else experiencing this issue? Thanks in advance

I installed Linux Mint on my computer yesterday, but I'm having a big problem-my WIFI won't work. I'm using a 64-bit Dell Inspirion with Linux Mint 14, and according to Windows Device Manager, my computer's NIC is a "Dell 1397 WLAN mini-card", manufactured by Broadcom. Some googling yesterday led me to this page(http://www.broadcom.com/support/802.11/linux_sta.php), but I'm not sure if the driver on it will work with my card, and I have no idea how to install it in any case. Since I use wifi to get on the net 99% of the time, this is kind of crippling.
Thanks in advance for any help!
