I have a wireless card on a laptop that I'm trying to get working.

lspci
Code:
02:00.0 Network controller: Broadcom Limited BCM4313 802.11bgn Wireless Network Adapter (rev 01)


dmesg briefly mentions trying to load the driver:
Code:
[    4.076947] b43-phy0: Broadcom 4313 WLAN found (core revision 24)
[    4.077831] b43-phy0 ERROR: FOUND UNSUPPORTED PHY (Analog 10, Type 8 (LCN), Revision 1)
[    4.077840] b43: probe of bcma0:1 failed with error -95
[    4.077860] Broadcom 43xx driver loaded [ Features: PNL ]


Here is the immediate configs that I believe are relevant.
Code:
# cat /usr/src/linux/.config | grep B43
CONFIG_B43=m
CONFIG_B43_BCMA=y
CONFIG_B43_SSB=y
CONFIG_B43_BUSES_BCMA_AND_SSB=y
# CONFIG_B43_BUSES_BCMA is not set
# CONFIG_B43_BUSES_SSB is not set
CONFIG_B43_PCI_AUTOSELECT=y
CONFIG_B43_PCICORE_AUTOSELECT=y
CONFIG_B43_BCMA_PIO=y
CONFIG_B43_PIO=y
CONFIG_B43_PHY_G=y
CONFIG_B43_PHY_N=y
CONFIG_B43_PHY_LP=y
CONFIG_B43_PHY_HT=y
CONFIG_B43_LEDS=y
CONFIG_B43_HWRNG=y
# CONFIG_B43_DEBUG is not set
# CONFIG_B43LEGACY is not set
CONFIG_SSB_B43_PCI_BRIDGE=y


And modprobing the b43 driver yields no errors.

And yet, no device listed.

Code:
 # tree /sys/class/net
/sys/class/net
|-- enp12s0 -> ../../devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:1c.6/0000:0c:00.0/net/enp12s0
`-- lo -> ../../devices/virtual/net/lo
