    It's well known that the Broadcom cards are spotty at best. The simplest solution would be to purchase a USB dongle like the Alfa: http://www.backtrack-linux.org/forum...-awus036h.html

    If that is not an option, you can try searching some of the threads here to see if you can find support for your card. A quick search:

    Good luck.

    I have been on a painful mission to get the bcm4312 (pciid :4315) working as well. So far I have failed with compat-wireless, the shipped wl (broadcom-sta) driver, and the wl driver compiled from source.

    But...

    the wl driver that ships with bt4 pre final DOES work. I am typing this post from my Hp Mini 110 right now.

    To be clear though, the wl driver will NOT help you with any sort of wireless pentesting, as this closed driver does not support monitor or injection.

    Hope this helps
