The first step is to find out what chipset the NIC uses. You can do that with this command:

lspci -v

In order to get broadcom chipsets working you need to install a firmware for the card. If you run dmesg it will tell you where to look to get the firmware and where to put it when you download it. After that, things should work fine.

It's dmesg, not dmesa. You run it from a command line.
