Broadcom 4306 Revision 3 drivers for Ubuntu 12.10

I have a Broadcom 4306 rev.3 card on my computer. I am running Ubuntu 12.10. I have been trying to install firmware-b43-installer along with fwcutter, expecting something to happen.
My computer can search for networks and I see my network and and I can put the password in, but then it cannot connect. When I type in lspci | grep Network I get this: 01:00.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4306 802.11b/g Wireless LAN Controller (rev 03).
I think there is a problem in the security as I can connect to an insecure network with no problems, but my WPA2 network it cannot connect to.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

In the network manager, if you select a connection and click to "Edit" it, you will get a dialog for various security settings. You could try changing the settings there one at a time (that's important--you can keep track of what didn't work).

Here's a troubleshooting guide from Ubuntu:
