Help with BCM4306 Wireless


I have been hitting my head against a wall trying to get the wireless working with this card. Unfortunately i use a HP laptop which locks to this card, so simply putting another one in is not a very feasible option.

I installed the b43-fwcutter, extracted the firmware, rebooted the machine. I am still unable to connect to anything, and nothing shows up in nm-applet for wireless networks. I am beyond confused.

I am still very much new to this so any help is appreciated.
