How to use ?

From Binary:

dpkg --install wireless-bcm43142-dkms-

From Source:

  • Patch the driver with the supplied patch

cd usr/src/wireless-bcm43142-oneiric-dkms-

patch -p1 < patches/0001-Makefile.patch

  • make it, or even better, dpkg --build wireless-bcm43142-dkms-

  • Install it (if you used dpkg --build, then dpkg --install it)

  • To test without restarting, add the wl module to your kernel by modprobe wl

  • Test if your WLAN card is working through iwconfig
