I'm running Windows right now and I want to install Linux Mint KDE but doing so without an internet connection. So I'd like to get my wireless up and running without using ndiswrapper and without compiling the driver. I know my wireless uses the latest BCM43XX driver. Thanks

So anyway I have the BCM43227 chipset and I found the solution to be pretty simple once I figured it out. Thanks to https://help.ubuntu.com/community/WifiD ... net_access

If you have the BCM4311, BCM4312, BCM4313, BCM4321, BCM4322, BCM43224, BCM43225, BCM43227 or BCM43228 wireless chipset just install the bcmwl-kernel-source package from the Ubuntu install CD. After installing Linux Mint, pop in an Ubuntu CD that corresponds to the version of Linux Mint that you installed then navigate to /pool/restricted/b/bcmwl , doubleclick on that package and install it, then reboot, and wireless should be working.

I tried using a Mint install DVD but could not find the packages so if anyone knows how to do this with a Mint DVD feel free to add to this.
