Debian 7 “Wheezy”

  1. Add a “non-free” component to /etc/apt/sources.list, for example:

    # Debian 7 "Wheezy"
    deb wheezy main contrib non-free

  2. Update the list of available packages. Install the relevant linux-headers and broadcom-sta-dkms packages:

    # apt-get update
    # apt-get install linux-headers-$(uname -r|sed 's,[^-]*-[^-]*-,,') broadcom-sta-dkms

    This will also install the recommended wireless-tools package. DKMS will build the wl module for your system.

  3. Unload conflicting modules:

    # modprobe -r b44 b43 b43legacy ssb brcmsmac

  4. Load the wl module:

    # modprobe wl

  5. Configure your wireless interface as appropriate. See also known issues.
