Wireless Not Working on Linux Mint 12


I've just installed Linux Mint 12 alongside of Windows 7 but I can't use the wireless network. This is what I have.

Code:
Network controller [0280]: Broadcom Corporation BCM4313 802.11b/g/n Wireless LAN Controller [14e4:4727] (rev 01)
	Subsystem: Broadcom Corporation Device [14e4:0510]
	Kernel driver in use: bcma-pci-bridge
	Kernel modules: wl, bcma, brcmsmacff:


uname -r
3.0.0-12-generic


dmesg | grep firmware
[   17.431638] elantech: assuming hardware version 2, firmware version 4.0.2

Can anybody help me?

try plugging your computer to a wired network then run all the updates availables hopefully there is a drive for your wireless card.
If not then hopefully somebody here can point out another solution.

Good luck to you!

Well then the other idea I thought about was. try downloading and install ndiswrapper you can google it first and read abou.
I have never used LinuxMint so I dont know hopefully somebody else can help you here.

Good luck to you.
