As per the Broadcom readme file for driver version 6. The first is the firmware-b43legacy-installer package. The bfwcutter package will need to be installed. You need to log in to change this bug’s status. You will also need the bfwcutter package which is usually included on the install media or can be downloaded from the official online repositories. The bcmwl-kernel-source package should automatically blacklist the open source drivers so that the STA driver is the only one in use.
