Need to make Broadcom BCM4312 802.11b/g LP-PHY work on Dell 10 netbook running SolusO
 
I have just installed SolusOS 1.2 Legacy on my Dell mini 10 netbook, which previously was working with Ubuntu 11.04. This Linux distro is based on the current stable Debian, with custom Gnome GUI software. Most OS software comes from Debian software repositories.

lspci tells me
Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4312 802.11b/g LP-PHY (rev 01)

I tried to follow some instructions for installing the driver on Debian, but failed.

Does anyone have any information specific to this SolusOS version?

# uname -a
Linux mini 3.0.0-ck1-non-pae-solusos #2 SMP PREEMPT Thu Aug 30 10:38:10 BST 2012 i686 GNU/Linux

I am able to get net access through eth0 or using a Hawking USB wifi dongle, but that's a bit inconvenient.
