How to install Broadcom STA Wireless driver offline?

Ok, here's the situation: I decided to update my Linux-generic kernel in Mint 14 to 3.8.4. The problem is that the updated kernel deactivates the wireless NIC driver, and I'm in the hospital (undergoing chemo) and I only have Wifi access. At the moment, only the LiveUSB (luckily I brought it with me) has internet access.

I'd like to know how to install and activate the Broadcom STA Wireless driver offline while I'm on the LiveUSB of Mint. I have access to my netbook's second partition which has Windows 7 installed so I can download files I need to do this to that drive.

Also, any instructions listed here I'll copy-and-paste into Gedit and save it on that same partition.

Thank you, very much.
