If you can connect to google.com with the "IP-number" 173.194.32.9...
Code:
root@hakan:/home/spiken $ ping google.com
PING google.com (173.194.32.9) 56(84) bytes of data.
..I think you have DNS-problems..

Check your /etc/resolv.conf for "nameserver", it should point to your router/modem...
Code:
root@hakan:/home/spiken $ cat /etc/resolv.conf 
# Generated by NetworkManager
domain haze.org
search haze.org
nameserver 192.168.1.1
..and the command "route" that you are using your wireless interface...
Code:
root@hakan:/home/spiken $ route
Kernel IP routing table
Destination     Gateway         Genmask         Flags Metric Ref    Use Iface
default         haze            0.0.0.0         UG    0      0        0 wlan0
loopback        *               255.0.0.0       U     0      0        0 lo
192.168.1.0     *               255.255.255.0   U     0      0        0 wlan0
I really don't remember why I changed driver from b43 to STA, but since I also run "64-bit" you can test my package if you like...
broadcom-sta
...don't forget to "blacklist b43" then.

Thanks Hakam. I actually am in need of the 32-bit version however for the Broadcom-STA driver, not the x64 version. My desktop runs 64-bit Slackware, but my netbook only runs 32-bit. If you have a 32-bit version of the Broadcom-STA package it would be useful.

I checked the Netbook's configuration and this is what I have from /etc/resolv.conf:
Code:
root@home:/home/jim# cat /etc/resolv.conf
# Generated by dhcpcd from eth0
# /etc/resolv.conf.head can replace this line
nameserver 192.168.1.1
# /etc/resolv.conf.tail can replace this line
This was from route:
Code:
root@home:/home/jim# route
Kernel IP routing table
Destination     Gateway         Genmask         Flags Metric Ref    Use Iface
default         192.168.1.1     0.0.0.0         UG    202    0        0 eth0
default         192.168.1.1     0.0.0.0         UG    303    0        0 wlan0
loopback        *               255.0.0.0       U     0      0        0 lo
192.168.1.0     *               255.255.255.0   U     202    0        0 eth0
192.168.1.0     *               255.255.255.0   U     303    0        0 wlan0
Thing is, if I disconnect from the LAN connection I can't get anything over the Wireless. Over the eth0 connection I get everything correctly with the internet, but over the Wireless it's totally dead.

Hello ReaperX7,

I have a 32bit package. You can get it for a short time from my server. Don't forget to create a /etc/modprobe.d/b43_blacklist.conf and add the following lines to it:
blacklist b43
blacklist b43legacy
blacklist bcma
blacklist ssb

After a reboot your card should work fine.

Cheers,
Grischuna

Thanks Grischuna. I'll download send it to myself in an email as I'm at work right now so I'll have it. Thanks a bunch. I'll try and test it tonight and see how it goes. I'm really wondering if this driver doesn't work if there is a deeper problem such as a hardware failure. I know Linux is more sensitive to detecting hardware problems that Windows is.

I have discovered this BCM4312 model is one of those with the combination Wi-Fi + Bluetooth, so that might shed some light into what the issue MIGHT be, but at this rate I'm running out of troubleshooting ideas and backtracing methods to find the source of the problem.
