    Failure @ setting up Broadcom Corporation BCM43228 WiFi Card

    I'm new to the forums. I'm also new to Kali. I used BT5r3 a bit. I am "learning." I have put many days worth of hours, and links, and attempts. I'm stumped. Rebuilding/Building/Compiling drivers, is a bit beyond my complete understanding.I learn by doing,not just reading.So I read,then do.
    Here are some recent attempts:
    root@kali:~# iwconfig
    eth0 no wireless extensions.
    lo no wireless extensions.

    lo no wireless extensions.
    ***I've also tried using the links and downloading the newest version of the driver and following the installation instructions:
    http://www.broadcom.com/support/802.11/linux_sta.php
    http://www.broadcom.com/docs/linux_sta/README.txt
    I have tried to download headers, and that was a failure. I have checked and confirmed what my card is, and it's designation(following are notes I keep abpout some of my attempts to maintain progress info):

    If this is not the proper way to post in the forums, or an incorrect place, etc, my apologies.

    hi guys i bought a acer laptop with a bcm43228 and then i install kali, update, upgrade everything, install STA driver to get my wireless card working, but no way for aircXck-ng suite especially the monitor mode wasn't working, then in fact the only way to make it working and it's working really good so the trick after days of fight is to update your kernel image and sources to at least 2.17+, i upgrade to 2.18 rc5, then update your grub, install driver b43 fw cutter and b43 driver, then make sure your driver WL ( if was working on your 2.14 kali system) is unload or absent, then modprobe b43 and ssd and you got it ... Everything is working now ! make a persistent for all boot, and you roxx !

    sorry for my french english

    Take care cheers guys
