UPDATED!!Bcm4312-lpphy install for Mint 14

this package is all you need for all debian-based distros.just install it by double or single-clicking the file and select install.do a quick reboot and your wireless should be up and running.

I also have the same network card, BCM4312.

I have followed your steps in installing the .deb files no problem, however when i enter the terminal code i get the following:

Code: Select all
 ~ $ rmmod b43
ERROR: Removing 'b43': Operation not permitted

then install the fwcutter then the linux non-free driver
in terminal:
